Changing address

You must tell the Council as soon as possible when you move home so you pay the right amount of Council Tax.

information you need to provide

  • Your Council Tax reference number
  • Date of move
  • The name of the new responsible person, with their contact details (if known)

If you are moving from one Oldham address to another

Once you've told us, we'll close your old account and send you a bill for anything you still owe.

If you have overpaid we can transfer the credit to the account for your new address or refund it to you.

Your new bill will tell you what your new instalments will be.

If you are moving into Oldham

We charge you from the date you moved in to your new home. 

Your old council will charge you up to the date you left their area - remember to tell us the date you moved so they get your charge right.

If you are moving out of Oldham

We charge you up to the date you moved out.

Your new council will charge you from the day you move into their area - remember to tell them you have moved in so they can bill you at your new address.
