Who is responsible for paying council tax?

Only people aged 18 or over have to pay council tax. Where there is more than one person aged 18 or over resident in your home, the one nearest to the top of the following list will be responsible for paying council tax:

  • Resident freeholder
  • Resident leaseholder
  • Resident tenant (unless you live in an HMO)
  • Resident licensee
  • Any other resident (unless you live in an HMO)
  • The owner, where there are no occupants or the property is an HMO

A resident is someone aged 18 years or more who has their only or main home at your property. If you have two or more residents in your home that meet the same description (e.g. joint freeholders), they will be jointly liable for payment of the bill. This means that the council can require all of them or any one of them to make payment of the council tax.

Married couples and those living together as husband and wife or civil partners are also jointly liable, whether or not they have an equal interest in the property.

Houses in multiple occupation

Houses in multiple occupation (HMO's) are dwellings that are occupied by more than one household, where residents pay rent separately for separate parts of the property. An example of such cases would be hostels and groups of bed sits. You will not be liable for council tax.
