Class I - People who have moved to somewhere other than a hospital or home to receive care

If a property is unoccupied because the taxpayer has moved for care from somewhere that's not a hospital or home, you won't have to pay council tax on it.

This exemption applies where a property is left unoccupied because the council tax payer has moved to receive care for:

  • Old age
  • Disability
  • Illness (including alcohol or drug dependency)
  • Past or present mental disorder

If the person has moved to a hospital, nursing home or a care home, Class E exemption may apply instead.

To qualify, the person's absence from the exempt property needs to be fairly permanent.

Exemption time limit

There is no time limit on this exemption. It remains active for as long as the property is unoccupied and the person who lived there is cared for elsewhere.

To apply for an exemption

Complete the online Council tax exemptions and enquiry form.

You need to include:

  • Details about why the person is in need of care (refer to the qualifying reasons above)
  • Their new address
  • The date they moved there
