Main part of the borough
Wimbledon Common Area*
* For properties within a three-quarter-mile distance of Wimbledon Common there is an additional charge, known as a levy, which we pass to the Wimbledon and Putney Common Conservators for the upkeep of the Common. To find out if a property is in this area please contact us.
Beware of scams! Some companies ask for money to challenge your council tax band. You can do this yourself for free.
Council tax charges are published here as soon as possible after the Council Budget meeting in March each year.
Changes to council tax legislation allowed councils to levy an empty homes premium of no more than 50% of the full council tax on long term empty properties (properties that have been unoccupied and substantially unfurnished for at least 2 years).
The Council has set a premium of 50% from 1 April 2015 which means that such properties will be subject to a 150% council tax charge from 1 April 2015.
