What if I have moved out because my property is being repossessed?
If your property has been repossessed and you have moved out you won’t have to pay any council tax. The bank, building society or mortgage lender will be responsible for the council tax and the property will be exempt from the date the possession order has been granted.
If you think that you might be entitled to this exemption, please contact us with the details.
