Number of people living in the property

The Council Tax bill assumes there are two adults living in the property.

For example:

  • If someone has moved out and you are over the age of 18 you could be entitled to a Single Person's Discount
  • If you have people come to stay with you for a long period of time this may affect the Council Tax discounts you get

Tell us about any changes so you pay the right amount of Council Tax.
