Further information:

There are no discounts for empty properties.

In addition, if your property has been empty for over two years you may be charged 200% council tax. If your property has been empty for over five years you may be charged 300% Council Tax.

The extra charge is to try and bring empty properties back into use.

The additional charge will not be payable if the empty property is being marketed for sale or rent at a level which could reasonably be achieved. Proof will be required.

To appeal or challenge a banding decision you need to contact the valuation office directly. For more information you can visit the Valuation Office Agency website.

The grounds for appeal about banding are restricted to the following cases:

  • Where you believe that the banding should be changed because there has been a material increase or reduction (this is explained below) in the dwelling’s value
  • Where you start or stop using part of your dwelling to carry out a business, or the balance between the domestic or the business use changes
  • Where the Valuation Officer has altered a list without a proposal having been made by a taxpayer
  • Where you become the taxpayer in respect of a dwelling for the first time. Your appeal must be made within six months, but if the same appeal has already been considered and determined by a Valuation Tribunal, it cannot be made again.

A material increase in value may result from building, engineering or other work carried out on the dwelling. In these cases revaluation does not take place until after a sale. The person appealing would usually be the new owner or resident.

A material reduction in value may result from the demolition of any part of the dwelling, any change in the physical state of the local area or the dwelling has been adapted for use by someone with a disability. In these cases revaluation should take place as soon as possible.

Information about individual bandings can be found on the Valuation Office Agency website.

If you consider that you are not liable to pay council tax because you are not the resident or owner, because your property is exempt, or if you think that the council has made a mistake in calculating your bill you should make an appeal in writing to the Council as soon as possible so that your case can be considered.

Please note that if you submit an appeal against your bill or banding, you cannot withhold payment against your account pending settlement of the appeal. Should you do so the normal recovery process would take effect and you may lose the right to pay by instalments.
