Welcome to the website of Michael Blank and Co, a Chartered Surveying practice that specialises in rating.

It is headed by Michael Blank, a member of the Rating Surveyors’ Association, an Honours member of the Institute of Revenues Rating and Valuation, and a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. He has over thirty years experience in rating, including five years with the Valuation Office Agency-the government body responsible for putting Rateable Values on properties and dealing with appeals against these.

He continues to have an excellent relationship with the Valuation Office Agency and this greatly assists him in his work, as well as his very wide-ranging technical competence and experience with a vast range of property types all over the UK. Together, these make him one of the country’s leading rating practitioners.

As well as rates savings-based fees, we frequently provide money saving consultancy advice at very competitive hourly rates. We also offer a free desktop appraisal of the rating assessments of most types of property. We positively welcome complex and/or difficult rating situations, where we can bring our specialist skills to bear, to resolve these for clients.

Based in Cheadle, Cheshire, the firm covers the whole of the UK from this central location.
