We have an external auditor in our office this week looking at my empty homes work. He thinks a Long-Term Empty Home definition should include empty/FURNISHED homes and also those empty under 6 months.
As I've spent the past ten years working on the premise that the definition of a Long-term empty home, according to council tax classification, was one which is unoccupied and unfurnished for more than six months, I would very much appreciate your confirmation of this fact please?
All the training events, EHN events etc etc I have attended over the years have taught me an LTE is empty UNfurnished over six months...
Thank you very much in advance for helping me out.
