Good idea.

Down the road from me there is a caravan site, where they built some chalets, the owners of these & some static caravans, do not pay any council tax as they move out for 6 weeks a year.

but dizzy your posts about housing not offices
i think 6 months would be a better option

as its not always easy to sell a house

One month free is too short - you have very little chance of selling a property empty because of death or transfering to a care home during that time.
