"I have valued and enjoyed my time as a chairperson. Each case is different and most appellants only do this once, it can be stressful for them. Whatever the decision our aim is that they feel the process is transparent, that they have been listened to and that we as lay members are professional and knowledgeable." Judi Ellis is a lay chairperson of the Valuation Tribunal for England. Applications are now open until 1pm on 17 September.
