Exemption for properties occupied by under 18s

Question

What if my property is occupied only by people aged under 18?

Answer

If a property is occupied by people who are all under 18, or if someone under 18 lives alone, the property will be exempt and you won’t have to pay any council tax. This is because a person can’t be liable to pay council tax until they become 18.

If you live alone the exemption will apply until you become 18. If everyone you live with is under 18 the exemption will apply until the first person becomes 18.

If you think that this exemption applies to your property, please print a all occupants under 18 exemption form (pdf) and send it to us.
