Council Tax - exemptions, discounts and increases (unoccupied properties)
Property has been repossessed or held by a trustee in bankruptcy
If the property has been repossessed by a mortgage lender or the title has been transferred to a trustee in bankruptcy you may be able to reduce your Council Tax bill by 100%.
You will need to provide evidence as part of your application. This can be a letter from the Bank, Building Society or Solicitor confirming the repossession or a letter from the Trustee confirming they have taken possession of the property. You can upload a scan, PDF or photo with your application. Please make sure all the details can be seen clearly before uploading.
