Annexe Reductions

If the person living in the annexe is related to the liable party of the main dwelling, there may be an entitlement to a reduction, in addition this reduction applies if the annexe is being used in conjunction with the main dwelling.

i.e. 1 adult resident (as a relative), single person discount of 25%, reducing the charge due to 75%. The annexe discount will reduce this charge by half, resulting in the charge due of 37.5%.

Please provide supporting documentation to prove the relationship i.e. birth certificate, marriage certificate.

If you wish to apply for this discount on the grounds that it is used as living accommodation to the main dwelling, please email us with details so that an inspection of the annexe can be arranged. Please email details to revenues@ashford.gov.uk.

Unoccupied Annexes Exemption

This exemption applies to Annexes which are unoccupied and have restrictions preventing them being let or sold separately to the main dwelling. Confirmation of the restrictions will be sought from the relevant body.

Granny Annexe Exemption

An annexe may be exempt if all the occupiers are dependant relatives of those resident in the main dwelling. A dependant relative is defined as A person who is 65 or over, or a person who is severely mentally impaired, or a person who is substantially and permanently disabled (whether by illness, injury, congenital deformity or otherwise). All occupiers of the annexe must qualify for the Class W to be considered.

If your annexe is occupied by a relative but you do not qualify for the Class W exemption, you may be entitled to a discount. Further information on this can be found on our discounts page.
