You can use this form to notify the council tax team of a death and/or to apply for a deceased exemption or discount.

Discount may be awarded if you are now the sole occupant in the property and are over 18 years of age.

Exemption may be granted on an unoccupied property where liability for council tax is to be met solely from the estate of a deceased person and a grant of confirmation has not been made. This exemption can be granted for a maximum period of 6 months from the date of death.

Please be aware that the Council Tax team is extremely busy at present and we are dealing with a very high volume of enquiries from customers.

Please complete the online form with as much detail as possible and we will get back to you as soon as we can.  It is currently taking around 6 weeks to process enquiries.  We appreciate you may be anxious to receive a response, but please bear with us and try to avoid contacting the team to ask for a progress update if possible, as this generates additional work.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to resume normal service as soon as possible.

Thank you
