    My Cottage was purchased in May 1998 for 81,000I had it valued in 1990 for 85,000.
    I contacted the valuation officer as I am in band E, and on the valuation I asked for a
    review to lower it to band D. He told me that as it was not sold in 1990 it does not count.
    He said that "Martin Lewis got it wrong" can you believe it ?

    You have already stated most of this in your previous post. Was the date of purchase May 1988 rather than May 1998. Also can you please answer the question I asked you following your first post, what was the 1990 valuation for?
