Expert:  ukfamilysolicitor replied 1 year ago.
Hello
Thank you confirming that for me.
It is my understanding such companies seeking to reduce your council tax - often charge an administration fee.
There is no need to use such a company if you think that your council tax band is incorrect as the valuations office will do this work for free. See these links:

You can contact the valuation office at:
