You need to tell us when you purchase, or move in or out of an address to make sure the council tax bill is correct. If you are a landlord you must tell us about tenancy changes. You must tell us:

  • if you have purchased a property (regardless of whether you have moved into it)
  • If you have sold a property.
  • If you have moved into Portsmouth (whether you own or rent the property)
  • If you have moved out of Portsmouth (whether you own or rent the property)
  • If you have moved from one property to another property within Portsmouth. (whether you own or rent the property)
  • If you own a property and have moved out and the property is empty.
  • If you are landlord and tenants have moved in or out of the property.

Additional advice for tenants

You will be liable for the council tax charge for the duration of your tenancy agreement regardless of whether you are resident, unless your landlord agrees to end your tenancy at an earlier date.

You can apply to register or change an address for council tax using our online portal. When logged in, please refer to the section titled ‘Tell Us You Have Moved Home’. If you are a landlord, please refer to the section titled ‘Are you a landlord or agent?’.
