Council Tax exemptions, discounts and increases - unoccupied properties
Property undergoing major repair/awaiting demolition/occupation prohibited by law
If the property is unoccupied because major repair work is being carried out you may be able to reduce your Council Tax bill by 50% or 100%.
Please note this reduction applies to the property, not to an individual household. This means that if the property has been lying 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.
If a registered social landlord property is unoccupied and awaiting demolition you may be able to reduce your Council Tax bill by 100%.
If the property is unoccupied due to a legal prohibition (for example a Closing Order, Demolition Order or Compulsory Purchase Order) you may be able to reduce your Council Tax bill by 100%.
