Patient in care home or hospital discount or exemption

If the property is left unoccupied because the only resident has gone to live in a hospital, nursing or care home on a permanent basis due to old age, disablement or illness, the property may be exempt from Council Tax.

If someone living in your property moves into a hospital, nursing or care home on a permanent basis and you are the only person over 18 remaining in the property, you may be able to apply for a 25 percent discount on your Council Tax.
