What the press and media have to say

You may have seen in the press or heard on the radio about some firms approaching householders to review their council tax banding on their behalf and charging an up front fee to do so.

Beware - Never agree to an up-front fee!

Firms who charge up-front fees to review your council tax banding do so as they:

  1. are not confident enough to work on a NO WIN NO FEE
  2. or simply want to scam householders into paying them money even in the knowledge that there is very little chance of reducing their council tax band.

Most properties in the UK are in the right band and very few review applications lead to band reductions.

Council tax banding errors hit the headlines back in 2007 making the front page of scores of newspapers.
