Discount or exemption for care home residents
If you or another adult living with you is now in a residential care home, you can apply for a discount or exemption on your Council Tax.
If the person that is now in residential care was the only adult living at the property, they can apply for a Council Tax exemption.
If there is now only one adult remaining at the property, they can apply for a 25% discount on their Council Tax.
If there are two or more adults remaining at the property, you can't claim a discount but you must tell us.
To apply for a discount, you will need:
- your Council Tax account number
- your name, address and contact details
- the name and address of the residential care home
- to tell us what date the person started living in residential care
You can apply for this discount for yourself, or on behalf of the care home resident.
