Who pays Council Tax?

If you own the property you live in you will have to pay Council Tax, together with your partner and any other resident joint owner(s) and their resident partner(s). 

If you rent the property and the owner lives elsewhere, you, together with any other joint tenants in your household and partners, will usually have to pay the Council Tax. 

If the owner lives elsewhere and there is no tenancy agreement, all adult occupiers are jointly liable. In some circumstances the owner may be liable to pay Council Tax for a tenanted property. 

If nobody lives in the property as their main residence, the owner is usually liable. On the Financial Services pages you can find out about our budget and financial plans, insurance arrangements and audit opinions.
