Council Tax discounts
Homes adapted for disabled person discount
If you are disabled or someone who lives with you is disabled, you may be able to get a reduction in your Council Tax charge. These reductions work by charging Council Tax at a rate one valuation band lower than the banding shown for your property.
The person liable to pay the Council Tax is eligible for this reduction if a disabled person is living in the property and one of the following is true:
- The property contains a room other than a bathroom, kitchen or lavatory which is predominantly used by and is required for meeting the needs of the disabled person
- The property contains an additional kitchen or bathroom which is required for meeting the needs of the disabled person
- The disabled person needs the use of a wheelchair within the property and there is enough floor space in the property for the use of a wheelchair
The regulations do allow a discount for properties in band A.
