Where a property is unoccupied and the previous occupier is bankrupt, the property is exempt from Council Tax and the trustee will not have to pay any Council Tax.
The property will be exempt even if the person who is bankrupt was jointly liable with someone else who is not bankrupt.
If you want to apply for an exemption, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will generally seek confirmation of the trustee in bankruptcy's status, and will also seek to confirm that the property is unoccupied.
You must inform the Council if you are no longer entitled to a discount or exemption. We will take legal action against anyone who fraudulently claims a discount or exemption.
For further information please contact the Council Tax office on Tel: 01329 824651, or e-mail email@example.com.
