NPPR Information & Advice

The Local Government (Charges) Act 2009 introduced a €200 annual charge on Non Principal Private Residences, payable by the owner(s) of the NPPR to the Local Authority in whose area the property concerned is located, over 2009 – 2013.  Liability dates were 31st July 09, and 31st March 2010, 11, 12 and 13.

The property market is getting busier.  As a vendor, it is your legal responsibility to ensure you have your NPPR certification in place in relation to sale or transfer of the property.  This takes the form of a Certificate of Exemption or a Certificate of Discharge for each year, to be issued by the local authority.

You should sort out your NPPR certification early in the sale or transfer process as due to the volume of queries, it can take up to 10 days for Offaly County Council to produce the certification for even the simplest of NNPR queries.  For more complex queries this period will be extended.

Please be advised that the NPPR charge and late payment fee relating to 2009 and 2010 on a property have now expired.
