The Valuation Office no longer changes rateable values. They cannot be changed by water companies and cannot be appealed by the customer. So any home improvements to a property since 1990 aren't considered. In cases where the rateable value is clearly invalid, for example if a property is redeveloped and split into flats, the only alternative way to charge is to fit a water meter.
