Occupied by Students
If a member of your household is a Student, we may be able to give you a student discount on your Council Tax.
To qualify you must be a 'full time' student studying at a recognised educational establishment. You must provide evidence to show this.
Under certain circumstances students may be exempt from paying Council Tax.
There are 3 categories under which exemption may be applied for and granted.
These are where the property:
- is occupied solely by students
- has been left unoccupied whilst the student is resident elsewhere
- has been left unoccupied by students for a period not exceeding 4 months (please note that this exemption reason can only be granted to a landlord)
