The firm has offered advice on Rating matters for over forty years. This involves appeals against the Valuation List entry, checking rate payments and liabilities and checking whether an appeal is appropriate because of nearby building works or other changes of circumstances.

The fee structure for this work is very beneficial to clients, as, if no refund is obtained this service is free.

We have acted over the years for major retail chains, large industrial companies and office occupiers in Central London and the Home Counties. In some cases the savings have amounted to several hundred thousand pounds.

The department is headed by Peter Barber FRICS IRRV who is also a member of the Rating Surveyors Association, other qualified members of staff also undertake this work.

Currently we are dealing with appeals against entries in the 2010 Valuation List which can be made until 31st March 2015.
