- a. Discuss the definition of a hereditament. This should include discussion on whether floors within a building or adjoining buildings should be a single hereditament or more than one hereditament.
- b. Calculate the rates which should be payable for this hereditament each year from 2017/8 to 2022/23 and clearly explain your calculations.
- c. Estimate your opinion of whether the proposed 2017 Rateable Value is correct or whether there is scope to argue for a reduction. Provide full reasons for this opinion.
