Properties exempt from council tax

Empty properties

You will have to pay on an empty property from the date it became empty unless it falls within one of the exemptions.

This will mean that all empty properties will be charged 100% of council tax and no discount is allowed. This includes properties that are undergoing structural repairs. This applies from 1 April 2019. If the property is still empty after two years we will increase the charge by 100%. This means that the council tax will be 200% of the normal charge.

An empty property means that no-one lives in it and no furniture or anything else is kept there.
