Flooding and Council Tax

If your home has been affected by flooding you may be entitled to a discount from the council tax.

How this affects your bill

A number of residents have been affected by recent flooding events and in some cases

have had to move out temporarily while repair work is carried out.

  • If you have moved in with someone else we will award a 100% discount on your flooded property for a maximum period of 12 months.
  • If you take on a temporary second property, your insurers may cover the council tax bill for that property, however if they will not you will be liable to pay council tax at this temporary property.
  • If you stay in your flooded property but have to move upstairs to live until the repair works are completed we will award a 100% discount on your flooded property for a maximum period of 12 months.

What you need to do

  • If you remain at the property affected by flooding and continue to live in it as you would normally do, you need take no further action and you will still remain liable for the council tax.
  • If you are moving in with someone else, you will be required to supply an insurance or builders or surveyors report detailing the work required to be undertaken to make your property habitable again.
  • If you have taken on another property, make sure you tell us that this is a temporary move due to flooding, and give us the address of your main home. You will be required to supply an insurance or builders or surveyors report detailing the work required to be undertaken to make your property habitable again.
