NPPR charges were introduced under the Local Government (Charges) Act 2009 as amended by the Local Government (Household Charge) Act 2011, in respect of all residential properties not used as the owner’s sole or main residence, during the years 2009 to 2013.    The NPPR is a self-declaration charge and the onus is on the owner to determine their liability and to register their property with the NPPR Bureau.  All information regarding the liability for the charge, dates and amounts due can be found on

Expiration of 2009 and 2010 Liability and Charge

The NPPR charge and late payment fee relating to the year 2009, has expired with effect from, 1 August 2021, in accordance with Section 7(2) of the Local Government (Charges) Act 2009.

Each charge which became a charge on property is applied for its own 12 year period, measurable from the liability date. The liability date and charge on property in respect of the 2009 NPPR charge, was 31st July, 2009, and therefore has expired. The NPPR charge and late payment fee relating to 2010 and the associated charge on a property has expired with effect from 1st April 2022.

The liability date for the remaining years 2010 to 2013 is 31st March.  The amount of NPPR fees and penalties a vendor is required to pay in order to sell a property which was an NPPR, reduces every year until the liability and charge on the property expires completely on 1 April 2025.
