Unoccupied dwellings may qualify to be treated as exempt where they:
A property that is unoccupied and unfurnished may be exempt from Council Tax for a maximum period of 6 months.
To be considered unfurnished, a property requires to be devoid of all moveable items. (White goods (fixed or built-in) and/or carpets, curtains, window blinds are not considered to be items of furniture).
It is also Council policy to randomly select properties for inspection where applications for exemption are submitted. Inspections will also be carried out where there is any doubt as to the validity of an application. Such inspections will either be announced (when internal access to the property is required) or unannounced (where an external inspection only will take place).
When a property is vacant but furnished a discount of 10% may be awarded, subject to various conditions.
