Unoccupied and Unfurnished Property Discount

If the property remains unoccupied and unfurnished, after a period of 6 month exemption a 50% Council Tax discount may be awarded.

If the property remains unoccupied and unfurnished following a period of 6 month exemption, you may be entitled to a 50% Council Tax discount for a further period of 6 months. You will be liable for the full water service charges during this period.

If you think you may be entitled to a discount please complete our unoccupied/uninhabitable online form.

Important: After this period of Council Tax discount the property will be classed as long term unoccupied and will be charged twice the Council Tax for the band the property is in unless you are entitled to a long term unoccupied property discount..
