If you own a furnished property but live in another, we need to establish your main residence. We call this 'Sole or Main Residence'. The discount you may get for a second home is 10% off the council tax charge. There is no discount on the water and sewerage charges. You may get a discount of 50% depending on the circumstances and the time the property has been empty.
Service personnel who own or rent a property are liable to pay Council Tax on their homes. If their main residence is determined to be the dwelling closer to their job, a 50% job related dwelling discount may be awarded.
