Written answers (Question to Housing)

The Local Property Tax (LPT) exemption formulated by the Department of Finance only applies to homes which have received a Stage 1 approval – Confirmation of Eligibility letter under the Defective Concrete Blocks Grant Scheme. Homeowners outside of Donegal and Mayo are not currently entitled to apply for a Stage 1 approval and therefore an LPT exemption.

If the Defective Concrete Blocks Grant Scheme is extended to other local authority areas homeowners in those areas who are impacted will be entitled to apply for a Stage 1 Confirmation of Eligibility. If approved, an exemption from LPT will apply under the terms of the available exemption.
