Water and waste water charges

Council tax bills for properties connected to mains services include charges made by Scottish Water for domestic water and waste water services. We are required by law to include these charges in our bill but we are not responsible for setting the charges:

Long Term Empty Property Tariff

We'll double the amount of council tax if a property's unoccupied for 12 months or more. This is called the Long Term Empty Property Tariff and applies even if a property is derelict or in very poor condition.

The charges for water and waste water are not affected by this tariff.

The tariff is designed to encourage people to deal with empty properties. You can save money by bringing an empty property back into use but you could also bring in rental income or a significant lump sum by selling up.

Your valuation band

The Assessor for Dumfries and Galloway values your home and puts it into one of the eight bands. The estimated value is based on property prices on 1 April 1991.

Valuation appeals

You might be able to appeal if you think the banding is incorrect.
