What to do in the event of a death

We understand that it is a difficult time when someone dies. This section has been designed to try to make things a little bit easier.

Please contact us as soon as possible so that we can make sure that the Council tax account is cancelled.

What we need to know

When you contact us, please could you provide the following information

  • the name and address of the person who has died;
  • the date he or she died;
  • if there is anyone (eg spouse) still living in the property as they will be entitled to a single person discount of 25%;
  • if the person who has died was living alone, whether they were the owner or tenant of the property (if they were the tenant, we also need to know the name of the landlord).
