"Loadsa Money!"

Well that's a pleasant surprise! Thanks to our neighbour, David. He alerted us a month-or-so ago that it is now possible to check your Council Tax banding online and compare it against similar properties. When we logged on, we found that our house was a band HIGHER than similar properties in the area.

You can check yours at http://www.voa.gov.uk/

We contacted the Valuation Office and asked them to look into it. They did, and we've found that we've been paying too much - for ten years!

The Borough Coucil confirmed that we're due a refund very soon.

Yippee!
