Valuing your property

Has your Local Authority Rate changed?

From 2015 onwards, Local Authorities can vary the Local Property Tax (LPT) base rate on residential properties. The base rate is the rate as applied in 2014. The Local Authority can increase or decrease the rate by up to 15% from the base rate. This is referred to as the 'Local Adjustment Factor' (LAF).

Nine Local Authorities have adjusted the LPT rate for 2019. Some local authorities increased their rate in 2018, but reduced it again in 2019 while others have opted for higher rates for 2019.
