When a Council sets the Council Tax each year, the figure quoted always relates to that for a Band D property. The amount that people in other properties pay is calculated on a proportion of the Band D tax.
For example, people in a Band A property pay two thirds of the Band D tax. A Band H property pays twice the band D amount.
Empty properties will be charged the full charge after 1 month.
There will be no discount for second homes.
Properties that have been unoccupied and unfurnished for more than two years will be charged a 50 per cent empty home premium. This increases Council Tax liability to 150 per cent of the normal charge.
