Council tax - empty property notification
If you own or rent a property and it is unoccupied for a period of time, you may be entitled to a reduction in your Council Tax. There are various situations where an empty property reduction may apply, however only the three most popular are covered by this form:
- second home discount
- empty/unfurnished exemption
- uninhabitable exemption.
All of the above reductions are being abolished from 1st April 2013, and a full charge will be payable on all empty properties, furnished or unfurnished, from 1st April 2013.
If you think another discount or exemption may apply to you, please visit the Council tax page for further information and advice.
