Land & Property Services (LPS) is reminding landlords that their rate bill must be paid in full by Wednesday 30 September 2020 in order to secure this allowance
If you are responsible for paying the rates on one or more properties that you rent out, you may be entitled to 10% discount on your rate bill. This allowance can only be awarded to eligible landlords who pay their bill in full by 30 September. The discount does not apply to the rates due on landlords’ home addresses, second homes or personal holiday homes.
For rented properties where the tenant currently pays the rates, the landlord can enter into a formal agreement with LPS which will ensure they are eligible for this allowance in the future. For more information on terms and conditions and how to do this visit www.nidirect.gov.uk/rates-rental-properties
There are a range of ways to pay. Landlords can pay online at www.nidirect.gov.uk/rates or by contacting the LPS helpline on 0300 200 7801. For further details on payment methods go to www.nidirect.gov.uk/how-you-can-pay-your-rate-bill.
Landlords are advised to allow a minimum of five working days for any payment to reach LPS.
