  • Unoccupied, unfurnished and requiring or undergoing repair or structural alteration 50% discount for up to 12 months from the date the work starts. After 12 months there will be no discount.
  • Second Home - Unoccupied and furnished = No Discount
  • Long term empty properties Will pay 100% charge plus 50% premium after 2 years.
The discount is linked to the property not the individual so if the property was empty under the previous owner or tenant you may only be entitled to a proportion of the discount or none.
