Council tax

Moving home

How to let us know if you are moving into, out of or within East Renfrewshire as well as any increase/decrease of adults at a property.

Please note that council tax records and the electoral register (voter information) are dealt with by two different bodies and any changes in your address need to be reported to both East Renfrewshire's Council Tax department and to Renfrewshire Valuation Joint Board (RVJB). You can contact RVJB on 0300 300 0150 or, for more information, visit: How do I register to vote?

Please note: some forms ask for a 'property reference number', but you only need to include it if you know it.
