It will certainly be interesting to find out what happens.
Sorry for not updating but there hasn’t been anything to report until now.
The Valuation Office Agency has now added the property as a new entry at the estimated market value 34 years ago, and have given it a council tax band.
In the 1980's I was working in an office which had been built onto the rear of a large property but received all its power and water through the larger building. We were a completely autonomous company but affiliated to the one in the large building. When central heating was being installed throughout, even to our office, a council surveyor came around and told us they never even knew our office was there. This was despite it being visible from the road and we advertised our business weekly throughout the area.
The class F exemption would still apply: When a property had been occupied by a single person, who either owned or rented the property and that person dies, the property is exempt from Council Tax payment for as long as it remains unoccupied, and until probate is granted.
