Complex Council Tax exemption Watch
Hi. I am a full-time student studying in York, exempt from council tax, nice and easy.Here is the issue: I live with my girlfriend, and we are not 'partners' in any legal sense. She is a full-time student, studying at a Czech university in Czech Republic. But she is on a leave of absence, for 1 year. The two things colliding here are:A) Students on a leave of absence are regarded as full-time students, from what I could find out online.B)Students studying outside of the UK on non-UK universities are STILL exempt from council tax, if I am not mistaken.Therefore, should we be totally exempt as a house? Can we apply for an exemption or would we need extra documents?Thanks
From what I could see she will be exempt, but better off tlaking to the council because of the foregn student element and LOA..
