Empty properties where there is no charge

Some homes don't get a Council Tax charge for as long as they stay empty. They include homes:

  • Of someone in prison (except for not paying Council Tax or a fine)
  • Of someone who's moved into a care home or hospital
  • That have been repossessed
  • That cannot be lived in by law
  • That are empty because they've been compulsory purchased or a demolition order has been obtained
