Council Tax Penalties in Newcastle It WILL affect you as a landlord!

Properties in the North-East



Please remember that you must tell the council of all changes in circumstances that affect the amount of council tax you pay within 21 days of the change, whether this means that you pay more or less. If you fail to do this the council will impose a penalty of £70.00. If you fail to tell them on more than one occasion the penalty maybe increased to £280.00. 



To report a change in circumstances you need to write to the local council.



Typical changes in circumstances that you must tell them about include:-



  • Moving home


  • Applying for or ending a discount or exemption


  • People moving in or out of your home or property


  • Tenancy changes
