Council tax between tenancies

Changes to discounts with effect from 1 April 2017

Unoccupied, unfurnished and uninhabitable properties will no longer be eligible for any Council Tax discount from 1 April 2017.

The full amount of Council Tax for these properties will become payable from this date.

This decision was passed by the council on 11 July 2016 and there is no provision in the Council Tax legislation to appeal against this.

You are responsible for Council Tax payments for periods between tenancies.

Council tax discounts

If the property is unfurnished and unoccupied during this time, you may be eligible for a six week reduction from Council Tax.

If you do not notify us when occupancy changes, you will continue to remain liable for Council Tax.
