The 2013 guidance below sets out the broad framework for local authority discretion to reduce council tax discounts on second and long-term unoccupied homes.
The supplementary guidance below, updated in April 2018, provides clarification on local authorities' ability to exercise flexibility in applying council tax increase on long-term empty homes.
If you have any queries about variations to council tax in your area, you should contact your local authority.
