Council Tax: moving home
Changing address (moving into, out of or within Northampton)
It is important to promptly tell the council that you have moved address so we can correctly send you a new or revised bill, or calculate any refund you may be entitled to.
We have an online form to the right for you to tell us about your move.
Not sure if Northampton is your local authority?
You can find out which local authority you need to contact by searching on the GOV.UK local authority finder.
Moving into, within or out of Northampton
Use this form if:
- You are moving into Northampton for the first time, or you were not paying Council Tax at your last address (e.g. you were living with parents or a friend)
- You currently live in Northampton, are responsible for Council Tax, and you are moving to a new address in Northampton where you will also be responsible for paying Council Tax
- You are moving out of Northampton, or if you are moving within Northampton, but you will not be the person who is paying Council Tax at your new address (e.g. you have moved back with parents, to a shared house or joined someone who already lives in the property)
Registering to vote
If you change address, you need to make sure you are on the register of electors at your new home, or you may not be able to vote in the future. It is also a legal requirement to register to vote.
You can register to vote online.
You will be asked to fill in your name, address, date of birth and a few other details.
If you cannot use the online form, please contact the Elections Team and we will be able to help you register:
