How To Value Your House for Local Property Tax

  1. You can use the Residential Property Price Register as a guide . It shows the sale prices of all of sale prices from 1st. January 2010 to date. There are no details about the type of house or the number of rooms, etc. Also – the price shown on the Register for brand new houses is exclusive of Value-Added Tax (VAT). If you are referring to the prices of new properties in your area to determine the LPT band of your own property, you should add VAT at 13.5%.  You should keep a note of the properties on the Register that you use to determine the value of your own property. 
  2. Revenue has an “Interactive Tool” you can use which indicates the average valuation band for properties by ‘Small Area’. ‘Small Areas’ are compiled on behalf of Ordnance Survey Ireland. There are about 18,600 Small Areas in Ireland, usually with 50 to 200 properties in each. More information here.
  3. You could get a valuation from an Estate Agent – but this could cost you in the region of €200

As long as the valuation used in November 2021 was accurate (to the best of your knowledge)- you do not need to update your valuation until 2025.

For example, if you add an extension which increases the property’s value, you do not need to update your valuation. The LPT charge is based on the value of your property as at 1 November 2021.

Your Local Property Tax band will not be affected by any general increase or decrease in property prices during the period 2022 to 2025.
