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 an unlimited period.
Unoccupied house which is held by a religious body for occupation by a Minister of religion as a residence to perform the duties of that office.
I consider exemption should apply
And I attach, in support of this application, documentary evidence as to the status of the property e.g confirmation by a Church Officer such as the existing Minister that the house is unoccupied and held for occupation only by another Minister.
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.
