An example of our expert service
  • Mr Smith had moved in to a property where he rented a room from the owner, who also lived in the house. The owner of the property duly contacted the Local Authority and advised them that Mr Smith was resident.The Local Authority amended the Council Tax charge due on the property and removed the owners 25% Single Person Discount. To make up for the loss of this reduction Mr Smith agreed to pay the owner the equivalent.After Mr Smith contacted us we established that he was, in fact, only living at the property from Monday to Friday as he worked nearby and he had a family home some distance away where he lived the rest of the time. We helped Mr Smith by issuing him with a letter laying out our opinion and advising that in our opinion he was not resident at the property and should not be counted when the Council Tax was being calculated. This meant that the owner was still entitled to his 25% Single Person Discount and Mr Smith no longer had to pay the extra amount to the owner. This saved him approximately £250 per year !
