Council Tax on second homes and empty properties

Properties empty for two years or more

Currently an additional 100% empty property premium is charged for properties that have been unoccupied and unfurnished for over 2 years.

As a result of changes to Council Tax Legislation, the Council will implement the following charges:

  • From 1 April 2020 a 200% empty property premium for properties that have been unoccupied and unfurnished for over 5 years;
  • From 1 April 2021 a 300% empty property premium for properties that have been unoccupied and unfurnished for over 10 years.
