Hi guys, just a quick couple of questions.

 

1)

Person A owns a house.

He cannot live at the property temporarily.

He is also signed off sick by his doctor and gets ESA.

Because of this, he is living with a family member.

The family member is on income support.

They get countil tax reduction.

 

What he wants to know is, would he also get council tax reduction on his own mortgaged property as well?

Yeah he gets council tax reducation whilst living with the family member.

 

At the moment, he has not informed the council that he's left his own house and is still paying full council tax. That's why he wants to know if he will be able to get council tax reduction on his own house as well whilst he's not there. Essentially, as he's getting ESA, he would like to get council tax reduction on both places; his own property, and where he's living temporarily.

I would have thought it unlikely and that he would get charged 150% as it would be a second home. That said, the council may have a reduction scheme in place if his current accommodation is a temporary arrangement for respite/care.
