Making an Appeal – REVISION Appeals
A revision appeal is an appeal to the Valuation Tribunal against a decision of the Commissioner of Valuation on the revision of the valuation of a commercial property under Part 6 of the Valuation Act 2001.
“Revision appeal” and “revaluation appeal” are informal terms used by the Valuation Tribunal to distinguish the 2 categories of valuation appeal.
Right to Appeal
The right to appeal to the Valuation Tribunal arises following the fixing of a valuation by the Commissioner of Valuation on a commercial property.
If a person affected by the valuation is dissatisfied with it, he/she can firstly appeal to the Commissioner of Valuation. This is known as a “first appeal”.
When the Commissioner issues his/her decision on the first appeal an appellant may, if still dissatisfied, appeal that decision to the Valuation Tribunal within 28 days from the date of the issue of the first appeal decision by the Commissioner.
It is very important to note that the Valuation Tribunal and the Commissioner of Valuation/Valuation Office are separate bodies, independent of each other. The role of the Valuation Tribunal is to hear appeals against decisions of the Commissioner.
