Holiday Homes

Purpose Built Holiday Home

A discount is available for some purpose built holiday homes. A  purpose built holiday home is a property used for holiday purposes. It either has to be vacated at certain times or is unfit to be used throughout the year.

A purpose built holiday home is not the same as a holiday home for commercial let. Please see our charges, valuations and appeals page for further information on holiday homes.
