People in prison or detained

If someone living in your property goes into prison or is detained, and without them there is only one adult living in your home, you can apply for a 25% discount on your Council Tax.

If a property is left empty because the person who used to live there has gone into prison or is detained, you can apply for an exemption (which means you don't have to pay Council Tax for the property).

This includes people who are:

  • in a prison, hospital or any other place under the order of any court of the United Kingdom, or an Armed Forces standing Civilian Court
  • detained under the Immigration or Mental Health Acts.
