If the property remains unoccupied and unfurnished following a period of 6 month exemption, you may be entitled to a 50% Council Tax discount for a further period of 6 months. You will be charged the full water and waste water charges during this period.

If you think you may be entitled to a discount please complete our unoccupied/uninhabitable online form.
