Residents of Certain Dwellings - Hostels or Night Shelter
You will be disregarded for Council tax purposes if your sole or main residence:
- currently provides residential accommodation - such as a hostel or night shelter and
- the accommodation is predominantly provided in non-self contained units, for persons on no fixed abode and no settled way of life, and under licences to occupy that do not constitute a tenancy agreement.
In these cases it is normally the person who owns the hostel or night shelter who will be liable to pay Council Tax.
Please note: Failing to supply information or supplying false information could result in a penalty of £70 being applied to your account for each year of the failure to notify.
