Report a change of circumstances

You need to tell us when:

  • you move into, within or out of the area
  • something changes which may affect how we deliver services to you or your entitlement to support or benefits

Changes may include:

  • name
  • address
  • number of people (over 18) living at the address including a child turning 18
  • income
  • health

This list is not exhaustive.

Changes may affect:

  • the amount of Council Tax you pay
  • the amount of housing benefit or Council Tax support you receive

This list is not exhaustive.

If you are a landlord, estate agent or letting agent

You can use the online form to report changes such as:

  • house purchases and details of the new owner
  • new tenancies
  • tenancies ending and people moving out

Register a death

Initially, you should register a death with the Registrar within five days.

The registrar will give you a reference number to use the government’s Tell Us Once service which reports the death to us and other government services all in one go.
