Change of Circumstances

Tell us about changes straight away. If you don't, you may end up paying the wrong amount of council tax.

Changes you must tell us about include:

  • If you change your address.
  • If someone in your household dies.
  • If someone aged 18 years and over comes to stay with you for a period of time (this may affect any discounts that you are receiving on your council tax bill)
  • If someone moves out (if this means that you now live alone and are over 18 you may be entitled to a single person discount)
  • If you change your name due to marriage or divorce, or the name on your account is incorrect.
  • If your children leave school.
  • If you or another resident of the house aged 18 years and over goes into care or into hospital for a long period, or are away from home providing care for someone else.
  • If someone aged 18 years and over can now be disregarded as an adult resident of the house.

This is not a full list. If you think a change may affect your council tax, please tell us anyway.
