Premium for empty and unfurnished properties

From 1 April 2019, properties that have been unoccupied and unfurnished for more than two years will be charged an additional premium of 100% Council Tax.

From 1 April 2020, this premium will increase to 200% for properties that have been unoccupied and unfurnished for more than five years.

This is regardless of any change of ownership during that period.
