The full Council Tax bill is based on having two adults living in a property. The bill is not increased if there are more than two adults living there, but can be reduced if there is only one.
If only one adult lives in a property, the bill is reduced by 25 per cent. If you want to claim a single occupier discount you can download an application form. Complete the form and return it to the Council Tax team at the address shown on the top of the form.When looking at the number of adults living in a property, certain people are not counted (disregarded). If people in a property are disregarded, a 25 per cent or even a 50 per cent discount can be granted even if more than one person lives there.
