The Call Over system was introduced to cope with the unprecedented levels of appeals received by the Valuation Tribunal. In the first instance all appeals must first come before the Call Over system before being allocated a hearing date and all parties to an appeal must appear in person when allocated a slot on the Call Over system.
It should be noted that both parties to an appeal are required to attend the Call Over. Should an Appellant be unable to attend for any reason, they must contact the Tribunal offices in writing. Repeated non-attendance will result in the appeal being struck out from the Tribunal’s register of appeals.
Note: If an agreement has been reached between the parties, the Tribunal must receive written confirmation from both parties before an appeal be removed from the call over list. Only then is it permissible for the Appellant not to attend the call over. Moreover, this will be confirmed in writing by the Tribunal if agreement has been received from both parties.
It is not acceptable to solely contact the relevant valuer in the Valuation Office regarding attendance or an agreement as the valuers themselves do not attend the call over at the Tribunal but do have representatives present. The Tribunal is a statutorily independent body from the Valuation Office and therefore acts entirely independently.
