Advice for the bereaved (Council Tax)
If your partner, or someone else who lives with you, has died and you are now the only adult occupying your home, you may be entitled to a reduction in your Council Tax.
A 25% discount is available for people who live alone.
To apply please complete the online claim form. If you are unable to please telephone the Council Tax department on 01932 838383.
If the property of the person who has died remains empty, then the executors or personal representatives of the estate may qualify for an exemption.
Please supply details of who is acting on behalf of the estate and confirm whether probate has been granted by emailing email@example.com or telephone the Council Tax department on 01932 838383.
If the person who died received a discount this will be cancelled from the date of death and you may receive a revised bill advising of the change.
