Wealden District Council

Discount or exemption for those in residential care or hospital

Question

What if I am (or someone that lived with me) is now a resident in a care home or hospital?

Answer

If a person has left home permanently and moved into a hospital, nursing home or residential care home to receive care or treatment, a discount or exemption could apply.

A discount can be granted if there is now only one person living in a property. If you think that you might be entitled to this discount, please print an exemption form as in residential care or hospital form(pdf) and send it to us. Alternatively you can phone us and we will go through the application with you. You will need to give us your council tax account reference which is on the top right of your bill.

If there is nobody living in the property we can grant an exemption. If you think that you might be entitled to this exemption please print an application form and send it to us. Alternatively you can phone us and we will go through the application with you. You will need to give us your council tax account reference which is on the top right of your bill.
