Assessing business rates for owners and occupiers in both the private and public sectors.


Dunlop Heywood are business rating specialists and part of Leaders Romans Group. Their specialist team covers the whole of the UK making appeals on all categories of property, negotiating reductions in Rateable Value with the Valuation Office Agency, Scottish Assessors and other bodies to save our clients money.

Led by Stuart Hicks, they act on behalf of owners and occupiers in both the private and public sectors including some of the UK’s largest and most complex organisations.

The 2010 Rating Revaluation and associated new legislation are presenting special challenges but Dunlop Heywood ensures that an innovative approach is taken so that the cost of rates is minimised for our clients. Our extensive services include:

  • Appeals
  • Valuation Tribunal
  • Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber)
  • Empty Property Rates
  • Relief for partly occupied property and Listed Buildings
  • Transitional Certificate
