Council Tax

Unoccupied properties

In most circumstances you must pay Council Tax even when a property is unoccupied.

Properties that are undergoing major repair work or structural alteration qualify for a

50% discount for up to 12 months.

Please note this reduction applies to the property, not to an individual household. This means that if the property has been empty or a reduction has been awarded on the property previously, the level and duration of the reduction you are entitled to may be affected.
