Council tax property exemption application - charitable

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:

  1. 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:

  1. Reason for vacation by outgoing tenant and forwarding address if applicable.
  2. Proof of charitable status is also required.
  3. 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.
