Because the property has been vacant for over a certain period of time. property was only vacant due to planning application taking the so long and been refused twice then won on appeal for the same scheme.
Surely you can not go back on a previously paid bill and state you are increasing it by 50%
Yes this is correct, after they have recieved full payment for that year at 100%
No i payed the full council tax as the bill stated at the time but now the council want to back charge me as they say the bill should be 50% more due to the fact the propery has been empty for more than 2 years.
yes in full for each year as soon as the bills came.
no! the increase is because the property is not occupied. This is a new thing implimented this year to charge 150% of rateable value for any property empty for longer than a certain period.
