A home is exempt from Council Tax if it is unoccupied because by law it is not allowed to be lived in, or because of action being taken by a public body to buy it or stop anyone living in it.
If the home is lived in illegally, for example by squatters, it will no longer be exempt. The illegal residents will be charged Council Tax.
The property will be exempt as long as the circumstances remain the same.
