When you move out of your new property you need to let the council know that you have moved address for council tax purposes, even if your household will be exempt due to you all being students (for more information on this please look at our handy guide on Council Tax.) This will stop them from attempting to contact you in reference to council tax fees payable for the period after you have vacated the property.
Those living in university accomodation
The University will automatically inform the council that you have vacated their accommodation, you therefore do not need to do anything when moving out of University Accommodation.
