Making a Vacant Site Appeal

Making an Appeal

The right to appeal to the Tribunal arises following the determination of market value on a vacant site by a local authority under the the Urban Regeneration and Housing Act, 2015. The owner of the vacant site may appeal to the Tribunal against the determination of market value within 28 days from the date of the Notice of Determination of Market Value from the Local Authority.

To make an appeal, simply complete and submit the Vacant Site Online Appeal Form. This should be submitted to the Valuation Tribunal within the statutory time limit

The Notice of Appeal form must be signed and dated and the appropriate fee must be attached.

Remember to read the Guidelines for Completion of Vacant Site Notice of Appeal before completing the form.

Alternatively you can download the Vacant Site Notice of Appeal Form.

Following the implementation of the National Payments Plan by all Civil Service bodies, from 1st of January 2022 the Valuation Tribunal no longer accepts cheques and bank drafts as payment of appeal fees. Payments must be made electronically, through the online appeal form or over the phone by means of a debit or credit card, or by the Electronic Funds Transfer.

If you have any queries with regard to this change of procedure, please do not hesitate to contact the Valuation Tribunal at or by telephone on 01 6760130
