Exemptions for lived in properties
Some properties are exempt from paying Council Tax.
In some cases, the property is only exempt for a certain amount of time, and you may have to pay a charge when the exemption runs out.
Time limits start when the circumstances for exemption first apply and don't restart until the property changes hands.
