Tell us about a change of address or a change in your circumstances

If you are planning to move home in the near future or your home circumstances change, it is important you let us know. This will allow us to update our records and ensure that your Council Tax bill is correct.


Change of address

If you are moving home, you must tell us as soon as possible. This includes if you are moving into, within or out of the Stockton area. If you are a landlord, you can report if a tenant moves in or out of your property.

Before advising us of the changes you will need the following:

  • Council Tax Account Number (If you previously paid for Council Tax in the Stockton Borough).
  • Owned Property - Date sale was completed and name of new owner.
  • Rented Property

    • If you are the tenant, we will need your landlord’s name, address and contact number.

    • If you are the landlord, we will need your tenant’s name, previous or forwarding address and the names of any other people aged 18 or over who live with the tenant.  Please complete your own details in the Advisor section.
  • If you are buying a property but are not moving in, you can report this change using the register to pay Council Tax link below.
  • Please do NOT tell us about a change of address more than 14 days before you are due to move.

If you are already registered for Council Tax and need to report that you are moving.
