What if a Property is Complete but Unoccupied?
New properties, whether newly constructed or created by conversion, which are unoccupied and substantially unfurnished can receive a 25% discount for 6 months (from the date on which it is considered to be complete).
This discount expires if the property remains empty after 6 months and a full charge then becomes due. If the property is still empty after 2 years a 50% premium is added to the empty charge.
What if I disagree with the Completion Notice?
Information about how to appeal against a completion notice is shown on the 'Appeal Against A Council Tax Decision' page
