Application for an Exemption from the Empty Homes Premium
Reason for Exemption
An Empty Homes Premium, in addition to the full Council Tax, may be charged by the Council when a property has been unoccupied and unfurnished for 2 years.
The Premium will be charged at 50% of the full Council Tax.
However there are exemptions from this premium where:-
(a) a property would be the sole/main residence of a person, but it is empty as that person resides in accommodation provided by the Ministry of Defence, because of their employment (service personnel posted away from home); or
(b) a property is an annexe to a property and it is being used as part of the main property.
