About our services to Agents

The core work of the Valuation Office is the carrying out of the national Revaluation programme and the processing of Revision applications. The terms "Revaluation” and "Revision” have very distinct meaning and application in Irish valuation law as set out in the Valuation Act 2001 

During the Revision and Revaluation programmes rating consultants/agent represent various ratepayers in their dealings with the Valuation Office.

Ratepayers do not need to have independent professional representation during any discussions or interaction with the Valuation Office about the valuation of your property.

However, if you wish to be represented professionally, or wish to seek independent advice, the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI) in association with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has produced a document "Professional Advice on Revaluations and General Rates Assessments" which is available on their website at www.scsi.ie/ratingsp . If you are considering engaging a private rating consultant, this document provides practical guidance, including advice on the issues you should be wary of.
