    Hi all,
    I'm thinking of employing a live in carer for my mam who owns her own property and does not pay council tax. I'm wondering how this will impact on the non payment - I'm assuming I would have to declare someone else living at the property??? Anyone else gone down this route?
    Thanks.

    Have you found a live-in carer yet?

    Im considering a friend who has been nightsitting for me since June and is in a position where she could move in, just need to clarify a few legal points first.

    You would need to get a Carers Disregard form completed in order for it all to be above board with the council. X
