Prohibited from Occupation Exemption

What is it?

An exemption from paying Council Tax, where occupation of a property is legally prohibited. This may be because a property has been sealed off due to ongoing actions e.g. a police crime scene, or because occupation of a property would breach a law e.g. a dangerous building. Properties may also be unoccupied due to a compulsory purchase being carried out.

How does it work?

You need to apply for this exemption. It is not granted automatically when the property becomes unoccupied due to becoming legally prohibited.
