A home is exempt from Council Tax when the last person to live in the property has died, and:
The property will remain exempt for as long as the circumstances remain the same and, providing ownership has not changed, can continue for up to six months after the grant of probate or letters of administration.
You should tell us when probate or the letters of administration or probate have been granted. You should also tell us of any changes that mean that the property is no longer exempt. For example, if someone moves into the property, the property is sold, or ownership changes.
