This discount is awarded on your main home and not on second homes.  If you are claiming a discount because someone has moved out of your home leaving you as the only adult, please tell us their new address. This will help us check your claim. 

You will not be entitled to a discount if someone has left your home for a short period of time, or intends to return in the future. 

Please choose one of the following options.
