Council Tax bands

Each dwelling has been put into one of eight Council Tax bands according to its open market value at the 1 April 1991.

Your property band was set by the Assessor for Lothian Valuation Joint Board. All appeals or objections about banding should be directed to the Assessor.

Call 0131 344 2500, email or visit

New taxpayers should note that any objection must be made to the Assessor within six months of becoming a Council Tax payer.

You are still required to pay Council Tax, as billed, while your objection or appeal is being considered.

Find your Council Tax band

Following a recent exercise carried out by the Lothian Valuation Joint Board, a number of Haddington properties have had a change to their property banding.

Our Council Tax team will be updating our records to reflect those changes and will issue revised notices over the next few weeks. If your property band has reduced, and you are eligible for refund, we will contact you.
