You may not have to pay council tax if the property has been repossessed or with a bankrupts trustee.

Repossessed

To receive a reduced bill the property must be:

  • Unoccupied
  • Repossessed by the mortgagee

We will need to see a document from the mortgagee confirming this.

  • Unoccupied
  • The responsibility of the bankrupts trustees

We will need to see the documents from the official receiver confirming this.
