You must tell the Council as soon as possible when you move home so you pay the right amount of Council Tax.
To report a change of address please contact the Council Tax Team.
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.
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.
If you are moving out of Oldham
We charge you up to the date you moved out. If you still own or hold a tenancy on the property you have moved out of, you will still be liable to pay the Council Tax empty charge.
Your new council will charge you from the day you move into their area.
