Empty properties

Empty properties are charged at the full rate of council tax with further premiums in addition to the base rate in the long-term:

  • 100% premium for 2 to 5 years
  • 200% premium for 5 to 10 years
  • 300% premium for 10+ years

You need to let us know if your property is empty.

Why information is on a different website
We are in the process of adding information to this new unitary council website. Some pages will give you a link back to a previous council website to help you find what you need. Read more about the council changes.
