Council Tax is not paid on some properties because they're exempt. In some cases, this only applies for a certain length 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 if the property changes hands.
These categories are only broad descriptions of the available exemptions:
Please remember, while you are waiting for the outcome of an application, you must continue to pay your current bill. If this causes any problem, please contact us immediately.
Exemptions are reviewed at least once each year. We may ask you to provide information that helps us to do this. Failing to supply this information could mean any entitlement is cancelled.
Please remember, if your circumstances change you must tell us within 21 days.
