If your property has been adapted in some way to accommodate someone with a disability, then you may be entitled to discount on your council tax account.
The adaptations may include:
- adapting a ground floor living room into a bedroom
- creation of an addition bathroom and or a kitchen
- creation of extra space in your property to meet special needs arising from a disability
The bill may be reduced to that of a property in the band immediately below the band shown on the valuation list.
If your home is in Band A, your bill will be reduced by 1/6th of the Band A charge.
How to apply for a council tax discount
The bill payer or person liable to pay council tax should download and complete an application for council tax reduction for those with disabilities.
The person with the disability must be living at the property for a discount to be made.
You must continue to pay your bill on time until any discount is applied. If you default on payments you may face recovery action.
