You are here: Home / Council Tax / Discounts And Exemptions / Exemptions

Vacant properties (unfurnished)

If you own a property that is vacant you may be entitled to a discount or exemption from Council Tax depending on how long your property has been empty and what is happening to it.

Your property must be substantially unfurnished. If it is empty and requires no structural alteration or repair work then it can be exempt for a maximum period of six months.

If the property remains no one's main home after 6 months, the exemption will cease and the full Council Tax will be payable.

If you want to apply for a discount or an exemption, email counciltax@fareham.gov.uk. We will generally 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 counciltax@fareham.gov.uk.
