  3. Fixed Cost Liabilities

    Can anyone advise? Background - wife and I are retired. UK resident, but own a property in Germany for holidays for a total of 3-4 months a year (it's empty when we're in the UK). We pay fixed costs all year, even though we only use it part-year (utilities/local taxes/refuse collection/insurance/etc). We also travel with six rescue dogs (greyhounds) If we leave the EU, we will have to consider whether or not to continue with this or to sell the property - because we'd likely only use it for a maximum of 3 months, once a year, as to travel with the dogs more than that, because of the additional costs we expect post Brexit (vet certificates/blood tests/etc and travelling twice a year instead of once, by ferry/etc) will make it very expensive. My question is, can we avoid any fixed costs, should we decide to sell, we stay in the UK and the house will be empty until it's sold? For example, we know that we would still have to pay council tax if it was an empty property at home, but that is determined by your own local authority, rather than nationally. The way it operates in Germany, we can cancel the garbage collection of course (as it's not inclusive in the council tax equivalent, but paid separately) and can end our phone/internet contract. So I guess I'm asking about things that get paid to the local verbandsgemeinde, grund steur, water, etc. Any help greatly appreciated. Ta
