Hi,

I'm currently looking at various properties to potentially buy. Can anyone advise me on council tax, Some properties are 85 / 95 square metres but one I'm looking at is 163 sq metres. Would that difference in plot size make a significant difference in council tax due?

Thanks

Yes it will make a difference as IBI (council tax) is based on cadastral value and that goes by plot size.

However, council tax is very low in these areas, probably about a tenth of what you'd pay in UK, but it also affects your community fees which also depends on plot size. Ask a neighbour or the administrators what the community fees are as they can be a lot more than the IBI.

Ask the agent/s involved Laurie, if they are decent they should have all this information to hand.
