Hi, 1st time on here, hope I'm doing it right. I have lived with my sister and her husband for over 10 years now, last year I bought a static caravan on a 12 month site but recently was asked to provide my council tax bill to prove where I live. On checking the paperwork I am not named on the bill, only my sister and her husband are named on it. My name is on the electoral list and all my bank details, car log book, driving licence ect... are all registered here, will that be proof enough or will I need to contact the council for some sort of proof ? Thanks, Mitch.

I would think if you explain the situation the items you have should be sufficient evidence. Just don’t get yourself thrown off the site for living there as it might be a 12 months site but if they are checking paperwork like this clearly they are only a holiday ( not residential) site.

A full Council Tax bill is based on at least 2 adults living in a home. Spouses and partners who live together are jointly responsible for paying the bill. As long as the Council Tax is being paid in full, it doesn't matter how many people are living there.
The previous version where everyone living in a house was nicknamed THE POLL TAX & what was widely regarded as the undoing of Mrs Thatcher! So basically, why don't you ask your sister & her husband if you can be added to their council tax bill? It wont cost them anymore. If you live in your van all year, thats technically a definite no - no as unless its classed as a park home with residential status, you may get away with it but could legally be turfed out at any time. But as far as producing a council tax bill goes, you may get round that if the council add your name to your sisters bill? Worth checking out anyway.

Strange that they didn't ask for proof when you bought...

to the forum Mitch.

Sue and I don't have our van anymore, however the response post from RRROb is spot on.

Similar situation when we were on a 12 month holiday site and living and registered at our daughters for, doctors, electoral, all our ID address details etc....


However, we still had to had our names " added " to Council register ( council tax bill ) but were not legally liable in the event of default payment of council tax by our daughter or son in law. etc...

(Our site also required a utility bill in our name so we were added to the water bill).

All presented and accepted ( normally parks check year on year )

Then we sold our van 4 years later and brought our own place! Lol

Hope that helps.

Dave.
