Council Tax HelpWatch
I would recommend though if she is currently payng council tax and you do move in, getting her name taken off the council tax and yourself put on the council tax instead. That way you don't have to pay any council tax as you are exempt from paying council tax and if she isn't on the system it is better and she is saving money. Just make sure she is taken off voting if she registered at the address and get registered at your parents place instead if she wants to be able to vote.
Hi, I've just finished first year at uni and I'm in the midst of moving out of my halls. I'm looking for a flat with my older sister but I'm confused as to who will need to pay what for the council tax. I'm 19, she is 23 and is a junior doctor but also doing a masters at uni on the side. Does that technically make her a student too? And if so, do we both get discounts or what? Thanks for the help in advance. (Just a side note: I do know the tax band is a C and we live in Glasgow)
She will be liable for the full council tax on the property, minus 25% single occupancy discount (you're a student so you're exempt).
