Empty properties and second homes

Unoccupied and unfurnished properties

If the property is unoccupied and unfurnished it is entitled to an exemption (100% discount) from council tax for one month after which time a full charge is payable.

This is a property related discount, therefore you cannot apply for another exemption unless the property is occupied or furnished for 42 or more consecutive days.
