More about the Single Person's Discount review

Each year local authorities nationwide receive a high volume of applications for single person discount. Single person discount is applicable where one adult over the age of 18 is occupying the property as their sole or main residence. 7,700 properties in the Ryedale district currently receive the discount of 25% out of a total of 25,700 properties.

While most residents are claiming the discount appropriately, there are a minority who are attempting to defraud the system. These residents may not have reported a change in their circumstances and are receiving the discount when they are no longer entitled to it. The aim of the review is to detect such cases. Checks will be made to ensure everyone who claims the discount is genuine. However, occasionally circumstances may not be so easy to explain. To help in these situations, we have included the most frequently asked questions that can arise throughout this review period.
