Council Tax Links and Support

Students studying a full-time course with at least 21 hours of study in term time per week attending 24 weeks qualify for Council Tax exemption. To apply the exemption, we will require your student ID (usually supplied on your application form).

If you are not a student while you are living in the property you will be required to pay Council Tax. As per the terms of your tenancy agreement you will be responsible for the administration and payment.

Council Tax is administered and payable to City of Lincoln Council.

All Council Tax information can be found here.

The discount is not applicable where two or more residents are required to pay.
