Resident in a hospital or care home

A full council tax bill is based on at least two adults being resident in a property.

Some people are not counted - they are 'disregarded'.

You may be able to get a 'disregard' discount if all of the residents but one are disregarded, or you are the only resident and are disregarded.

There is a separate application for each type of disregarded person and this page deals with residents of a hospital or care home.

You may be entitled to a council tax reduction if you meet the following criteria:

A person whose main residence is a hospital, nursing or care home for the purpose of receiving personal care, are not counted as being resident in a property when calculating the amount of council tax payable.
