Your FAQ

Question: My property requires major repair or structural alterations I understand that there is currently full exemptions for up to 12 months, will this change?

Answer: Under the council tax reform, properties requiring major repair or structural alterations will no longer receive a full exemption. They will now be awarded a discount of 75 per cent of the charge for up to 12 months whilst the property meets the criteria.
If an existing full exemption is in place prior to the 1 April it will be amended to reflect the changes following this date for the remaining duration.
