Council Tax Exemption - Uninhabitable Properties

Council Tax discount for properties undergoing major works

Changes to discount from 1st April 2017

From 1st April 2017, a discount will no longer be applied if a property is empty, substantially unfurnished and undergoing major repairs (which can include structural repairs) to make it habitable.  

Any discount awarded before 1st April 2017 will continue until the property becomes occupied, furnished, the major repairs are finished or the discount period ends, which ever is first.
