Council Tax

Inform your local authority of the death, Council Tax will stop being charged from the date of the death. If someone is still living in the property, let the council know. If they are living by themselves they become entitled to a 25% reduction on Council Tax. The council does not charge Council Tax on unoccupied properties; this remains the case for 6 months after probate is granted. If you are eligible for any refunds on Council Tax these should be entered in to the probate forms.
