Hi everyone, I am looking into moving out of my Mums into my first rented house (yipppeeeee, a place to call my own). I went to citizens advice and although I am in the new 25-34 age bracket, because I receive DLA i will get £98.08 a week housing benefit. I have been working out how much I can afford as I am going to private rent and I need two bedrooms in case I need someone to stay over if I am unwell. It isn't absolutely essential but it will make things easier. Anyway, I forgot to ask about council tax when I was there, I have had a look online and I can't work out whether I am entitled to a reduction and how much roughly it will be. I know council tax varies but if I do have to pay the full rate, could someone please give me an indication on how much this is roughly a month as I am trying to budget my money? I receive DLA and ESA at the moment as I am unable to work. I read that some people are entitled to a rebate and I know students are exempt but not sure where I fit into it all! Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and wish you all a healthy and happy 2013
