Unoccupied dwelling previously occupied by students
If a property was previously occupied by students, the landlord may be eligible to apply for exemption when it becomes vacant.
Exemption can be awarded for up to 4 months from the date the property was last occupied.
This exemption applies to Council Tax, water and sewerage charges.
To qualify the property must:
- have been previously occupied by students (see our Students page for further information on qualifying criteria)
- have been occupied for a period of 6 weeks or more prior to applying for exemption
- be re-occupied by qualifying students
