    Enquiry Details

    A person who is detained by order of a court, whether they are in prison, in a hospital or in any other place, is not treated as a resident for Council Tax purposes. This is known as a ’discount disregard’.

    This means that, dependent on the number of other residents in your household, you may be entitled to a discount on the amount of Council Tax that you pay. If the property is left empty and unoccupied because a person, who normally lives at the property, is in prison the property is exempt from Council Tax from the date they were detained. We will look to see if you are entitled to a discount or exemption if you complete this form.
