When is a new Council Tax banding charge applicable?

I am currently renovating a large 3-story flat into three totally separate self-contained flats – one on each floor. Clearly, they will need to be separately CT banded – how, and when is this done?

Am currently paying the CT on the whole flat as it is currently banded, but a bit of research states that I might not be liable to pay this at all (?) The flat was empty when purchased (used as a storage room for a commercial property) and has never had anyone living in there as it was ripped apart as major renovations were required and are still ongoing since purchase (Covid has delayed completion any earlier).

Any advice on where to go from here?

Many thanks

I have a similar issue exacerbated by the fact that it’s been long-term empty and I’m paying 300% of the council tax!

I have applied to have it delisted as it is in an uninhabitable state and will clearly need to be re-rated once separation has been completed.

I assume planning permission has been given for converting into 3 separate flats? This should then trigger a new valuation. Expect communication from the VOA at some point.
