Council Tax bands
Most dwellings are subject to Council Tax. There is one bill per dwelling whether it is owned or rented, and whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, mobile home or houseboat.
Each property is allocated one of eight bands according to its market value on 1 April 1991.
The following table is based on the charges for the Kendal area for 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018 but your bill may vary as all parishes are slightly different depending on the parish precept.
|Valuation band||Value of property||Council Tax in 2016 to 2017 £||Council Tax in 2017 to 2018 £|
|A||Up to £40,000||1,108.91||1,148.43|
|B||£40,001 to £52,000||1,293.73||1,339.85|
|C||£52,001 to £68,000||1,478.55||1,531.24|
|D||£68,001 to £88,000||1,663.37||1,722.66|
|E||£88,001 to £120,00||2,033.01||2,105.47|
|F||£120,001 to £160,000||2,402.65||2,488.28|
|G||£160,001 to £320,000||2,772.28||2,871.09|
|H||More than £320,000||3,326.74||3,445.32|
Your Council Tax bill states which band applies to your dwelling.
