There is no automatic requirement for non-domestic properties to be revalued following a change in ownership or occupation. However, the rateable value of a property may be reassessed following a proposal to the valuation officer to have the value altered. Valuation officers may also alter the rateable value of non-domestic properties as part of their duty to maintain the rating lists.
