Council's Uninhabitable Residence Rebate

Brisbane City Council continues to support Brisbane residents affected by the February severe weather event with a $1000 Uninhabitable Residence Rebate for eligible residents.


Ratepayers will be eligible for a one-off rebate to their rate account where:

(a) the applicant is the owner of a freehold rateable property on 26 February 2022 which was the applicant’s principal place of residence and

(b) the applicant resided at the property on 26 February 2022 and

(c) the property was not vacant land on 26 February 2022 and

(d) the property was rendered uninhabitable as a result of the event and

(e) the property remained uninhabitable as at 15 June 2022.

The rebate is not available if the property has changed ownership and the title transfer date is after 26 February 2022.

Where the rateable property is part of a Community Title Scheme (CTS), each owner of a lot within the CTS that is on land meeting the criteria above may be eligible for the rebate.
