Council Tax 25% Discount?

Dear All,

I was told that 1-bedroom flats are subjected to a 25% discount in council tax, is this valid? Is this valid for a couple living in a 1-bedroom flat or just of 1 person?

Thank you!
Thank you for your responses. I would like to know what happens if the person who’s living with me is a full-time student of an institution in an EU country. Do we qualify for a discount? If yes, how much?

    You get a 25% discount if you are the only adult (ie over 18) in the flat.
    Once 2 people over 18 live there you have to pay the full amount.
    This is also the case for single parents living in a house.
    Once a child reaches 18 the single parent has to pay the full amount.

    25% used to be a single person discount and not based on the size of the flat.

    As far as i’m aware the 25% discount is for single occupancy.

    You was told wrong
    The above answers are correct.
    It is only due to single occupancy and not the size of the property.
    You can live in a mansion by yourself and still get the 25% discount

    If there is one person living p[permanent at the residence , no matter what size it is you get a 25% discount
    You should ask your council office about the regulations about other Discount for student etc

    The discount goes on the occupiers not the person who two people in a 1 bedroom property would pay the full charge.

    Which country are they a student in and why are they in the UK – are they here studying as a visiting student. If they are then get a letter from the uni stating so and the council should apply a 25% discount .

    The catch however is a that a full time student cannot be held liable with a non-student so you would be legally responsible for the remaining 75% of the charge,
