Single person discount

Check if you are eligible for a single person discount.

If you are the only person over the age of 18 living in a property you may be eligible for a discount of 25%.

You can only claim this discount at your main residence - what is a main residence?. You can’t claim a single person discount for a second home.

If someone has moved out temporarily, for example the person is working away and has left you as the sole resident, you won’t be able to claim the discount because the other person’s main residence - what is a main residence? hasn’t changed.
