Council tax ... caravan on building site?

Postby jonahinoz » Fri Sep 08, 2017 7:58 am

Hi,

From a discussion on another forum ...

Are the LA allowed to charge Council Tax on a caravan being lived in while a house is being built on the same site? If yes, how do they decide what band it should be in?

My understanding is that if it your main residence, then it will be subject to Council Tax, but first there will need to be a valuation done (which will probably be on the main property). This is the case with barges etc.

I think in practical terms, if you receive a letter demanding council tax and you are still paying council tax on your house while work is going on, chances are that they will accept that it is a temporary accommodation and duplicate tax will not be required.

Don't take this as gospel, but this is my understanding.
