Empty homes

Local authorities are required by law to maintain accurate council tax records. To achieve this council tax accounts are regularly reviewed.  

We have asked a company called Capacitygrid to help us review empty homes across Lichfield District.

Capacitygrid will be writing to homeowners in the district asking if their property is occupied or not. Please make sure you respond to them directly.

To complete the form, you will need to use your unique property reference number and update passcode. All of this information will be on the letter they send you.

You can respond online or you can return the form they sent you by post.

If you do not contact Capacitygrid, an inspection of the property will be carried out.  Inspectors will carry a letter of authorisation from the council.

Please be aware that providing inaccurate or false information may lead to a penalty of £70, in accordance with Schedule 3 of the local government Finance Act 1992
