From 1 April 2017 empty properties that are unfurnished are no longer entitled to a discount, a 100% council tax charge is applicable.
Properties that have been empty for two years or more have a council tax charge of 150%.
If you no longer qualify for a discount, you need to let us know.
Your property may be entitled to a council tax discount if it's empty because it's undergoing major works.
For more information visit our properties undergoing major works page.
