Council Tax change of circumstances form

How to tell us you're changing your address

Do not use this form to tell us you have had a change of address. Instead, use our change of address form.

We need to know about changes in your circumstances. This will help us make sure that you're paying the right amount of Council Tax.

You can use this form if:

  • you are a landlord or letting agent advising us of a tenant or tenants moving in or out
  • someone in your household has died
  • someone in your household has moved and now lives permanently in a nursing home
  • someone has come to live with you in your home, including family or friends. This may affect a reduction that you’re currently receiving on your Council Tax bill
  • you’ve recently changed your name and you’d like us to update your account
  • you have an annexe that's attached to your property which was occupied by a relative or family member that has now become unoccupied
  • you need to tell us about any other change that could affect the amount of Council Tax you have to pay

We'll aim to action your change within 10 working days.

If you're interested in reducing your Council Tax bill, read about our eligibility criteria for Council Tax bill reductions.

Before you start

It will help if you have your Council Tax reference number to hand, as it helps us process your change quicker.

You can find this on your Council Tax bill. It's 10 characters long and starts with '50'.
