    My Son has accommodation at Portsmouth on base. I have written to my local council as I am now a single occupier of my property to claim the single person discount for Council Tax. I have been declined as technically my son's residential address is still at my home. Could anyone offer some advice please ?

    Hello, we are currently looking into this for you. Could you advise which council you are referring to please. Does your son return home at weekends or for long periods when on leave?

    i have had a word with the UPO staff - the line is that your son would have to have no link to your address. As in no bills addressed there, not have your address as his JPA home residence and not be on the electoral roll. Then you could present that as evidence that you are the single occupant in your appeal. This is no guarantee and i would suggest that you ask Citizens Advice Bureau for more guidance as we are not experts in this area.
