    hi,
    i might be moving to a new city where I'll be renting for 3-4 months. I understand I can get a 25% discount on council tax but my question is- do i have to pay council tax for just those 3-4 months or will i have to pay for the whole year? which is just over 1000 quid.

    cos if its for the whole year, i aint going :/*

    You only pay for when you're there. Get in contact with the local council and provide them details of your tenancy.

    It is done on a pro rata basis so only for the time you are there.*
