Help with Rates

Help with Rates for Owner Occupiers.

If someone is entitled to Guarantee (Pension) Credit, Income Support, Income-based Jobseekers Allowance (but not contributions based), Income related Employment and Support Allowance (not contributions based) they will get full rate relief upon application.

If an owner occupier is on a low income they may also get help with rates but they will have to go through a means test rather than passport straight into entitlement. There is an upper savings limit of £50,000 and a lower savings limit of £10,000.

How do I claim?

Contact Land and Property Services, Rating Division to request a rate rebate form by calling 0300 200 7801.
