Local Property Tax (LPT) liability

Residential properties that are liable for LPT

A residential property is liable for LPT if, on 1 November each year, it is:

  • occupied as a dwelling, even if it is in bad condition
  • or
  • not occupied, but is suitable for use as a dwelling.

A single building may contain several separate residential properties within it such as apartments or flats. Each separate dwelling should be treated as a separate residential property that incurs a separate LPT liability. For further information, please see TDM Part 01-01 Meaning of a 'residential property'
