Council Tax Changes Costs Landlords

Council Tax Changes Costs Landlords

As of 1st April 2013, all UK local authorities will have the discretion to charge the full Council Tax due on any empty properties within their borough. This is bad news for landlords as this will include any empty private sector rental properties.

The changes are designed to increase local authority revenues and will affect properties that until now had been granted automatic exemption or discounts, including furnished and unfurnished properties in the private rented sector (PRS).

Properties that would previously have been exempt including those that are empty because of necessary building work also lose the automatic right to be let off Council Tax for up to a year.

Numerous local authorities have decided to charge the full amount of Council Tax from the outset. The important changes to Council Tax charges are detailed below:

Council Tax Exemption For Landlords To Be Abolished in 2013

Council Tax Exemption For Landlords To Be Abolished in 2013

Thanks to the Government welfare reforms and austerity measures the rules for Council Tax exemption on empty rental properties will soon be abolished.

From the 1st April 2013 new legislation being proposed by the government means that landlords will become solely responsible for the Council Tax on all void rental properties.

Some local authorities, such as Durham, have already jumped the gun and have begun charging landlords the full Council Tax amount for any property that is currently untenanted, leaving many landlords confused and severley out of pocket.

If the new legislation is still at the proposal stage and is not yet law, why are some local authorities allowed to do this?

I happen to own several properties around the North East of England and have been billed for void periods over the last 6 months even if a property was empty for only a couple of weeks.

Durham are wrongly charging the full council tax on all empty rental properties despite the fact that no council run services are being used.

I have contacted Durham borough council and attemted to argue the toss and following lengthy discussions I was eventually told by an advisor to complete a form to apply for Council Tax exemption for any property that I had been charged for, however, the local authority in Durham flatly refused to post a form out to me and insisted that I get the managing agent to request one.

The only way that landlords can affect change is to use the current legislation set by Government against any greedy local authority and point blank refute any charge made against them especially if the charge is unwarranted.

Information taken from the Gov.uk website…

A full Council Tax bill is based on at least 2 adults living in a home.

If you count as an adult for Council Tax and live on your own, you’ll get 25% off your bill.

You’ll also get a discount if you live with people who don’t count as adults for Council Tax.

These people are not counted as adults for Council Tax purposes:

  • children under 18
  • people on apprentice schemes
  • 18 and 19-year-olds in full-time education
  • full-time college and university students
  • young people under 25 who get funding from the Skills Funding Agency or Young People’s Learning Agency
  • student nurses
  • foreign language assistants registered with the British Council
  • people with a severe mental disability
  • live-in carers who look after someone who isn’t their partner, spouse or child
  • diplomats

To work out if you should get a Council Tax discount:

  1. Count the number of adults who live in your home as their main home.
  2. Discount anyone in the list above.
  3. If you’re left with 1 person who counts as an adult, your Council Tax bill will be reduced by 25%.
  4. If you’re left with no-one who counts as an adult, your bill will be reduced by 50%.

If there’s no discount listed and you think you should get one, write to your council.

The council has 2 months to respond. If you disagree with the council’s decision or don’t hear back within this time, you can appeal to the Valuation Tribunal.

Whilst UK banks remain awash with loans made against sub-prime property – a legacy of irresponsible lending during the years leading up to the 2007 financial crisis. The UK’s largest commercial property market lender, Lloyds has been particularly active in trying to reduce its exposure to the volatile sector.

Lloyds Banking Group has been considering bids by dozens of private equity groups, opportunistic buyers and pension funds following the launch of distressed real estate loans three weeks ago.

The banking group now seem set to accept a loss of about 35% on up to £1Billion of commercial property debt as it continues to negotiate with up to four remaining bidders for the portfolio.

Initial bids for the distressed portfolio of loans were tabled at almost £650 Million (GBP) or $1 Billion, a price that would represent a 35% discount to the loans’ face value.

Lloyds hope that accelerating the process could mean that the sale could take place before Christmas this year.

The sale of a portfolio of loans marks a step change in Lloyds’ strategy. It previously only sold individual loans. The move could signal a more aggressive push to deleverage its balance sheet. Lloyds’ overall ambition is to unwind the £24bn worth of bad property loans it holds.
