There will be no charge if your property falls into one of these exemption classes.

When the property no longer meets the criteria for the exemption, Council Tax will become due and payable. See Can I get a reduction? for details of the possible charges you may face once the exemption ends.

Applying for an exemption

To ensure the criteria is met, we will need to discuss the full circumstances with you for the majority of exemptions, however for several discounts you will be required to complete an application form and provide the requested evidence. Please contact us at or by calling 01205 314200.

Change in Circumstances

If you qualify for a Council Tax exemption then you must tell us within 21 days if there is a change that might affect it. We can impose a £70 penalty if you do not tell us about a change. Keep us informed of changes on or by calling 01205 314200.
