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 Appealform.

PLEASE NOTE: The National Payments Plan (‘NPP’), administered by the Central Bank on behalf of the Government seeks to reduce the cost of Ireland’s payment system. Under the NPP, it is anticipated that significant savings can be realised by eliminating the use of cheque payments. 

In this context public sector bodies in Ireland no longer accept cheques from business users, nor are in a position to write cheques to business users – such payments will be made by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or equivalent.

As a consequence, the Valuation Tribunal will no longer be in a position to accept payment by cheque from the 1st January 2022.

The Office will continue to accept payment via our website

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
