Properties that need or are undergoing structural alterations or major repair

If your property needs, is undergoing or has undergone major repair or structural alterations to make it habitable, you may get a 100% discount on your Council Tax for up to twelve months.

Apply for a Council Tax discount for a property that is undergoing or has undergone major repair or structural alterations »

To get this discount the property must also be unoccupied and unfurnished.

Before a discount can be awarded photos and other evidence must be provided. These can be sent to compliance@civica.ekservices.org with your account number and address with details of the works to be completed.

If you are applying for this discount retrospectively (for works already done), we will review all the information you give to see whether a visit inside and outside the property is still needed.

We can only award a maximum of twelve months discount. If, after twelve months, the property remains empty and unfurnished a 100% charge is due.
