An adult who is a student, apprentice or trainee may not have to pay Council Tax. If that leaves only one eligible adult in the home, the remaining adult may be eligible for a 25% Single Occupancy discount.
If an adult has moved out of your house to stay in a hospital, residential care home or nursing home permanently, they will not be eligible to pay Council Tax.

If you or an adult in your home has been detained by order of a court in prison, hospital or any other place, that person is not eligible to pay Council Tax.
