Council tax information for landlords

Renting properties to students

It is the student's responsibility to provide evidence of student status to us via the Student Council Tax exemption page.

If you are a landlord and are liable for Council Tax and you wish to claim an exemption or discount, you should tell us the names and moving in dates of all students in the property.

You should also ask every student who is moving in to provide a Student Certificate which will be issued by their college or university.

Students and landlords should contact us as soon as the students move into the property so they do not lose any entitlement to exemptions or discounts.
