Test case relating to correct RV

Melanie acted for the Appellants in respect of an appeal which related in the main to Valuation issues and in particular, the correct Rateable Value (“RV”) of the hereditament in the List. The preliminary legal issues were whether (i) an oral agreement as to the RV satisfied the procedural rules and (ii) whether a proposal mistakenly signed as withdrawn had that effect. The Tribunal allowed the appeal in respect of certain aspects of the Valuation issues as a result of which, the RV was reduced.
