Find out about annexes and Council Tax
If you meet certain conditions your Council Tax may be charged at a lower Valuation Band than the one that your home is actually in.
Some homes are exempt from Council Tax, may qualify for a discount or are due to pay a premium.
The Council Tax bill assumes there are at least two adults living in the property. If there is only one adult occupying the property as their main home, there is a 25% reduction.
A discount of 10% is available for up to 12 months, if a property is unoccupied, substantially unfurnished; and requires or is undergoing major repairs (including structural alteration) to make it suitable to live in.
