The Lothian Valuation Joint Board is responsible for valuing your new property for Council Tax banding. We add your property to the Council Tax List, which is a record of all the domestic properties in the relevant Local Authority area. In order for us to make the entry on the Council Tax List, please supply us with the information requested below.
Once we have received these details we will enter your new property onto the Council Tax List and we will send you a letter letting you know what the Council Tax band for your new house will be. We will also share this information with your Local Authority who administer Council Tax charges. Once the Local Authority have received this information they will contact you to let you know about your payments and billing. They will be unable to bill you until we have made the entry on the Council Tax List.
This information is also shared with the Electoral Registration Officer who will be in touch in due course to assist you with registering to vote at your new address. Further information regarding registering to vote is available on the Electoral Page.
