Unoccupied Property Rating

Owners of unoccupied non-domestic properties usually have to pay unoccupied property rates. If a property becomes vacant there is a rate free period of 3 months (6 months for industrial properties) thereafter the rates are payable at 100%.

Certain properties are exempt from the payment of empty rates, examples include:

  1. Listed properties
  2. Ancient monuments
  3. Where occupation is prohibited by law
  4. Where the building forms part of the estate of a deceased person, or the owner is subject to bankruptcy proceedings
