There will be no charge if your property falls into one of these exemption classes.

When the property no longer meets the criteria for the exemption, Council Tax will become payable.  See Can I get a reduction? for details of the possible charges you may face once the exemption ends.

Applying for an exemption

To ensure the criteria is met, we will need to discuss the full circumstances with you for the majority of exemptions, however some require an application form to be completed. Contact us at or call 01507 601111 select Council Tax, then hold the line to speak with an advisor.

If you qualify for an exemption you must tell us within 21 days if there is a change that might affect it. We can impose a £70 penalty if you do not tell us about a change.
