Single person discount
Normally properties occupied by 2 or more adults will be subject to full Council Tax, however, reductions are available for single occupants.
If a resident of a property falls into one of the criteria listed below then that person would not be counted as a resident for Council Tax, but to qualify for discount there must be no more than one person left counted as resident. e.g.
- A property occupied by 3 adults, one of whom is a student. The student would not be counted but there would be no discount as there are still 2 residents counted.
- A property occupied by 2 adults, one of whom is a student. The student would not be counted and the bill would be reduced by 25% as there is only one resident counted.
- Single occupiers get 25% discount automatically.
