Council Tax for hostels and night shelters

It is the owners and not the residents of these types of property who are usually responsible for paying the Council Tax.

The person responsible for paying the bill can claim a discount if the main or only purpose of the property is to provide housing for people of no fixed abode and no settled way of life.

The property must be

  • not in self-contained sets of premises
  • for people of no fixed abode; and
  • under licences to occupy and not tenancies.

If you think this discount may apply to you, please contact us.
