Autumn Budget: 100% council tax premium on empty homes

Chancellor Philip Hammond has today announced a crack down on empty properties with a 100% council tax premium.

In the Budget speech Hammond said: ‘It cannot be right to leave properties empty when so many are desperate for a place to live.’

In order to address this he said the government will be giving local authorities the power to charge a 100% council tax premium on empty properties.

This will be done through new legislation.
