Tell us about tenancy changes if you're a letting agent

If you're a letting agent, you can tell us online about any changes to your tenancy, what you need to tell us, why it's important to tell us of any changes.

The online form should only be used by letting agents to notify us of any changes in tenancy details or to inform us of a new buy to let property.

The form captures all the relevant information necessary to update the council tax account. We can then quickly issue the correct bill to the right person or make arrangements for relevant Council Tax discount or exemption to be applied without delay.

Tell us online about a change of tenancy

You'll need to tell us:

  • contact details for tenants moving out
  • date they moved out
  • type of tenancy, length of tenancy
  • forwarding address 
  • contact details for the tenants moving in
  • date they moved in
  • how long the property was empty
  • where to send the bill

Why it's important to tell us about any tenancy changes

New tenants moving in

It often takes new tenants a while to tell us they've moved in. If you tell us straight away using our online form, we can update our records and send out a Council Tax bill to the new tenants. This reduces delays and the time that the owner is liable for the Council Tax.

Tenants moving out

If you have a forwarding address for the tenants that are moving out - it helps us recover any outstanding Council Tax for the property. Tenants don't always tell us that they have moved out and the Council Tax bill can sometimes be left unpaid. When we don't have a forwarding address we have to contact anyone who may have one. If you provide the forwarding address now - using our online form - it helps us maintain efficient recovery and minimise the cost of Council Tax administration.

Reduce paperwork, calls and visits

When you tell us about changes to tenants or properties with MyAccount there's no need to download or print any forms. We will be able to update the records quicker than if you call or email us as there's no need need to follow up for additional information.
