Beware the Rating Appeal Sharks!!

Because Rating Appeals can take a long time to resolve in the past there have been a number “Companies” which have been set up under Limited Liability protection to provide “Rating Consultancy Services.” Most but not all of these companies had one thing in common, big sales pitches, massive guaranteed savings, and of course big up front fees. And yes you might have guessed it, in the majority of cases these “Limited Companies” unfortunately went into liquidation or receivership, once all the up-front fees had been pulled in and the real work was about to start!

If you are therefore proposing Professional Rating Appeal/s we would recommend that you do this through either a Chartered Surveyor, a member of the Institute of Revenues Rating and Valuation or a member of the Rating Surveyors Association. Members of these bodies as are all fully regulated by their respective Professional Associations and are all obliged to hold compulsory professional indemnity insurance.
