Rates

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how the rates were worked out. My new house has a Capital Value on the LPSNI website of £250,000 and size of 138sq meters. My rates are £1700 something. Now my father lives around the corner, 1 mile liteally away, just as close to city (belfast) as we do. His CV is £360,000 and 274sq meters, but his rates are £800? How can this be right? I don't want to sink him in it, but I do want to see if mine can come down...

Am I missing something, he has just rebuilt his house, so would have has his rates recalculated I guess

I assume you both live in Belfast.

Yours should be £1777 and his should be £2500.

Does your father get any rates relief? Is he on pension credit? Or does he live on a farm?

If none of the above and it is simple a clerical error, he will eventually have to pay the difference which will be backdated.
