§ Mr. Chope
Guidance on determining an individual's sole or main residence for the purposes of registration for the personal community charge is contained in community charge practice note No. 9. Where an individual is regarded as solely or mainly resident will depend on the facts of each case. Advice to charging authorities on the standard charge in respect of unoccupied property has recommended them to consider a special class for property which is empty because the owner is required to live elsewhere as a condition of his or her employment.
