Homes empty for over 2 years
Find out what you need to pay for homes that have been empty for more than 2 years.
If your property has been empty for:
- more than 2 years, you must pay a 100% premium Council Tax rate – this means you will have to pay twice the normal rate
- more than 5 years, you must pay a 200% premium Council Tax rate – this means you will have to pay three times the normal rate
This is known as the long-term empty premium. We will tell you on the front of your Council Tax bill if you need to pay this premium for your property.
