When are Completion Notices issued?
Completion Notices are issued on new buildings or buildings created by the alteration of an existing building. The completion notice will show the building it relates to and the day that we consider to be the completion date.
Appeal a Completion Notice
The owner has 4 weeks from when the completion notice is served to appeal to the Valuation tribunal. If no appeal is brought by the owner, the date given by the local authority will be deemed the completion date.
The 3 or 6 months empty period empty exemption starts from the completion date. We may withdraw the completion by issuing a subsequent completion notice. If however an appeal is pending from the owner, then written consent is required from the owner of the building to amend the date.
