Blackadders LLP will use this information to deal with your enquiry. Our Privacy Notice explains how we take care of your information.

In order to work out your council tax you will need to know 3 things, the valuation band for your home, how much your local council charges for that band and if you are eligible for a discount.

If you are considering buying a property or renting a home, it helps to know how much council tax you will have to pay. This can help you budget, which can help you work out how much you can afford in rent or mortgage payments.

Please see the below tables which detail the different local council tax bands for the areas in Scotland that we sell or rent property in:
