    Hi guys I am aware that a student household is exempt from council tax, but usually this is a house with a couple of students in it, is this still the case for someone living in a rented property on there own, as a full time student, will my property be exempt completely?
    Thought there could be someone in the same position! Thanks

    I get it seems really obvious, but just panic set in, with all the documents I've seen had students rather than student, its unusually for one to be on there own!
    Thank you!

    If there are only students in the property, the house is exempt.

    If there are any non-students who are not otherwise exempt, the house would not be exempt. So if you want to live with a partner who isn't a student, the house would be charged council tax. However, if only one person in the household is liable for council tax, you would get a 25% discount
