An unoccupied dwelling that is owned by a charity can be exempt from council tax for up to six months from the date that it became unoccupied, provided that the property was being used for the purposes of the charity up to that date.

The exemption applies whether or not the property contains furniture.

For the purposes of this exemption, a charity is described as 'a body established for charitable purposes only'.
