Most Expensive House Not Band H

Recommended Posts

Just curious... In 1991 Band H was the highest band for houses costing £320k+. Now Band F places are going for £2m.

£2m Band G

£2.5m Band G:

£3.25m Band G Penthouse

£3.75m Band E (!)

Is there anything on sale more expensive than this in Band G or below?

PS. DId you notice that the mortgage calculations Foxtons gives are based on Interest Only... So you'd never actually pay the debt off.

I don't know about more expensive but what about this. The previous owners of our last house did a rather large conversion on it, mainly in the attic. When we purchased it , it was reassessed for its tax band and they came up with an increase from G to H. Bearing in mind this property at today's prices equates to about £450,000 for what was sold to us as a 5 bedroom dwelling we decided this was a bit much and decided to argue that, because the additional bedrooms in the attic had sloping ceilings, the only place one could stand upright was right in the middle of the rooms. They took our point and left the tax band unchanged. I dutifully in appreciation of their kindness set up a mega scalextric track. :D
