If your home has a disabled person resident, adult or child, then you may be able to get a reduction in your Council Tax bill.
To qualify, the property must have one of the following features in order to meet the needs of the disabled person:-
- A room, other than a bathroom, kitchen or lavatory, which is used predominantly used by and required for meeting the needs of the disabled person
- A second kitchen or bathroom used for meeting the needs of the disabled person, or
- Widened doorways or access to cater for the use of a wheel chair indoors.
If you qualify you will be charged a band below that in which your property has been assessed e.g. if your property is in band D then the charge will be at band C rate.
If your home is assessed as band A, which is the lowest band, we can still offer you a discount if one of the above conditions are met.
