Abstract: The practice of rating real estate is essentially an internal revenue source, synonymous to tenement tax levied on the owner/occupier. Property rating in Nigeria is bedeviled by many factors that impeded its smooth implementation and operation, thus, this form of taxation yields zero revenue in Bauchi, due to failure of implementation. This study is aimed at measuring the impact of non-implementation of property rating on neighbourhood facilities and services in Bauchi metropolis of Nigeria. About 132 closed-ended questionnaires were distributed to professionals in the field of real estate, in the academia and estate firms, 92 questionnaires were mailed back for analysis. The Pearsons correlation in SPSS was used to establish relationship between the variables. Findings from this study reveals that PRP has a strong influence over community sanitation and healthcare services, thus failure to institutionalize the practice could result to persistent deterioration of aesthetic quality of the living environment with imminent repercussion on individual healthcare.
