Council tax premium on empty homes

If your property has been empty for more than two years, you will have to pay an additional 50% in council tax while it continues to be empty.

We want to help encourage property owners to bring empty home back into use, increasing housing supply and reducing homelessness.

If you would like to discuss options for bringing your empty property back into use, please contact our housing strategy team for advice using the contact details on this page.

For more information, see our Changes to council tax charges page.
