In terms of schedule 11 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992, and the Council Tax (Exempt Dwellings) Scotland Order 1997 (as amended), a dwelling may be exempt from Council Tax if it falls within the category shown below. Exemption may be granted for a period of six months.
AN UNOCCUPIED HOUSE WHICH IS:
- Owned by a charitable body, which when last occupied, was occupied in furtherance of their objects.
I consider exemption should apply
and I attach, in support of this application, documentary evidence as to the status of the property as follows:
- Reason for vacation by outgoing tenant and forwarding address if applicable.
- Proof of charitable status is also required.
- Confirmation that previous occupation was for charitable purpose.
PLEASE NOTE: PROPERTY EXEMPTION WILL NOT BE GRANTED UNLESS SUPPORTED BY DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE
I hereby certify that the information on this form is true and complete. I authorise Argyll & Bute Council to verify the details. If Exempt status no longer applies I undertake to notify Argyll & Bute Council within 21 days of this occurring and understand failure to do so may result in a fine of £50 and £200 on repeated failure to do so.
