Council Tax - change of address

If you move house it is important that you tell us as soon as possible. If your moving date is within the next 21 days, we will process your form as soon as we can. If not, we will hold onto the information and process it within 21 days prior to your move. Please fill in the correct form:

If you own or rent a property which is not occupied as your main residence, such as a holiday home or a property closer to work, you may be entitled to a job related or second home discount.

If your property is empty, we may grant a discount for a limited period, depending on its status, and if it is actively marketed for sale or rent. A previous owner or occupier's use of the property may affect how much discount you get (provided that the last date of occupation was for a period of 3 months or more).
