If a person who normally lives at the above address is now living in a residential care home, hospital or certain type of hostel, we may be able to grant a Council Tax discount. The person’s main residence must be in the care home, hospital or hostel. To help decide this, we look at whether the person has an intention to return home, amongst other things.
If nobody else lives at the address besides the person who is now in the care home, we may be able to grant an exemption if they are the owner or tenant of the unoccupied property.

In line with Data Protection law, we may use information you give us to prevent or detect fraud or other crimes. We may also share it with other council services or public organisations if they need it in order to carry out their legal duties.
