Rates Relief 2017/2018
- Rates relief for uninhabitable properties is available
- Has your home or business been red-stickered?
- Has your insurer, EQC or a structural engineer assessed your property as uninhabitable?
- Is your home or business unsafe to occupy due to risk of rock fall, dam burst, or collapse of adjacent buildings?
If so, you are likely to be eligible for rates relief
The Council has been extended the 100% rates remission for uninhabitable property, on all rates for uninhabitable homes for the period 14 November 2016 to 30 June 2018. Residential homes that are unsafe to occupy are eligible for 100% rates remission, and farm buildings and commercial property that is unsafe to occupy are eligible for rates remission on the improvement value (that means those farms and commercial properties will be rated as if they were bare land, subject to terms and conditions). Rates remission applies for the period of time that the building is unable to be used - or until demolition, or sale as-is.
We are doing our best to contact landowners known to be eligible, but we may not have your contact details if you no longer live at your usual address.
Ratepayers of uninhabitable properties are asked to apply for rates relief, in writing to the Council, download the forms below and drop into the Council office at Level 2, 96 West End, Kaikoura or email firstname.lastname@example.org
