Family annexe discount

This discount of 50% can apply in the following circumstances:

  • If you currently live in an annexe and are related to the person(s) living in the main house then you may be entitled to this new discount.


  • If you are the owner of an unoccupied annexe and you use it as part of your main house then this discount may also apply.

Please note – There is no discount if an annexe is occupied by a non-family member.

When Does The Discount Apply?

  • The annexe must be part of the main home, i.e. it must form part of a single property.
  • The family member living in the annexe must be related to the person(s) living in the main house in either of the following ways:
    • Spouse or civil partner (including unmarried people who are living together as a married couple and where a same-sex couple are living together as if they were civil partners), parent, child/stepchild, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, great-grandparent/great-great-grandparent, great-grandchild/great-great-grandchild, great-uncle/great-great-uncle, great-aunt/great-great-aunt, great-nephew/great-great-nephew, great-niece/great-great-niece.
