The Regulations give some discounts in specific cases. However, homes that have been unoccupied for more than 28 days, and are unoccupied and substantially unfurnished usually pay 100% Council Tax.
Councils are given some discretion within the Regulations on the amount of discount allowed for empty properties. Most Councils, including OWBC, have opted to allow the smallest or no discount in order to encourage empty homes to be occupied as quickly as possible.
