Deceased occupant

An unoccupied property may be exempt for a length of time if the person who is liable for paying the council tax bill has died.

To qualify for this exemption, the property must have been unoccipied since the death and the person’s will or letters of administration haven’t been granted.

The exemption will end six months after the person’s will or letters of administration have been granted, or if the property is sold, transferred or occupied.
