Landlord Council Tax discounts and exemptions

Furnished lets

Furnished lets attract a 100% charge if they are not inhabited. If you wish to apply for an exemption on your Council Tax, you will need to call the customer service team on 01664 502502.

A one month exemption would begin from the date the furniture was removed. After the one month exemption expires, an empty rate charge is payable at the full rate.

Unfurnished lets

A 1 month discount is applied from the date your tenants vacate the property regardless as to whether their tenancy has expired. You may only be entitled to a proportion of the exemption as it is property related.

Once the exemption expires an empty rate charge is payable currently as the full rate.
