This code includes any structures where the dwelling is tenantable. (i.e. the certificate of occupancy is finalised and/or keys are received).

Record if the vacancy is not considered to be a 'normal vacancy'. All other vacancy episodes with both normal and non-normal periods are still classed as non-normal for their entirety as in previous years.
