If you're in the market for a new property, it's important to be aware of how much council tax you'll need to pay.  
 
This blog post will break down everything you need to know about council tax, including how much you'll need to pay based on where you buy a property.  
 
We'll also explain what council tax is and when you need to start paying it. So whether you're looking for your first home or are simply curious about council tax rates, this blog post has got you covered! 
What is council tax? 
 
Council tax is a local tax that helps to fund public services in your area, such as schools and rubbish collection. You'll need to start paying council tax once you move into a property, and the amount you pay will depend on where you live.  
Council tax is usually paid once a month, and you'll need to pay it even if you're not working or are on a low income. 
 
How much council tax will I need to pay? 
 
The amount of council tax you'll need to pay will depend on the value of your property. Properties in England are placed into one of eight bands, with properties in Band H being the most expensive.  
 
The amount of council tax you'll need to pay will also depend on the local council rates in your area. 
 
To give you an idea of how much council tax you might need to pay, we've compiled a list of average council tax rates for properties in each band in England: 
 
Band A - £90.50 
 
Band B - £105.60 
 
Band C - £120.70 
 
Band D - £135.80 
 
Band E - £162.90 
 
Band F - £190.00 
 
Band G - £217.00 
 
Band H - £264.00 
 
As you can see, the amount of council tax you'll need to pay can vary quite a bit depending on the value of your property. However, there are a few things you can do to reduce the amount of council tax you need to pay. 
 
If you're on a low income or are unemployed, you may be eligible for council tax benefit, which will help to cover the cost of your council tax bill. You can also get a discount on your council tax if you live alone or if your property is empty. 
 
So, there you have it! Everything you need to know about council tax and how much you'll need to pay based on the value of your property. We hope this blog post has been helpful and that you now have a better understanding of council tax.
