Apply for a Single Person Discount
The main council tax bill for a property assumes that it is the home of two adults (i.e. people aged 18 or over). If it is the main home of only one adult, the bill is reduced by 25%.
Cancel a Single Person Discount
If your circumstances have changed and you are no longer the only adult living in a property, you must cancel your single person discount.
Anyone incorrectly claiming a discount may face a penalty of at least £70 and/or be prosecuted in the magistrates court.
If you are now not the only adult (aged 18 or over) living in the property you need to pay the full charge. Households with more than one adult living in the property may be able to claim another discount because certain adults (this may include the liable person) are 'ignored' (disregarded). Therefore you may still be entitled to a discount. Please see other council tax reductions for more information.
