To qualify for the disabled relief the property must be the sole or main residence of a person/child who is permanently and substantially disabled and must have one of the following adaptations -
- have a room, other than a kitchen, bathroom or lavatory, in the property which is mainly used for meeting the needs of the disabled person
- have a second kitchen or second bathroom which is used for meeting the needs of the disabled person
- the disabled person/child needs to use a wheelchair indoors and there is space for them to do so
The reduction is awarded by treating the property as if it is in the Council Tax band immediately below the actual band of the property. So a band B property would be treated as if it is in band A. If the property is in band A, the council tax bill will be reduced by 1/9th of the total yearly liability.
