Melton Borough Council

All Council Tax bills in the Melton Borough are showing a 3.1% increase for the LCC element of the 2018/19 bill. The bill should show a 3.0% increase.

The error has occurred with the percentage comparison of the LCC elements in the 2018/19 bill with the 2017/18 bill. Please be assured that the charges within the bill are correct.

Smoke detectors in rented accommodation

From October 2015 the law requires landlords to fit smoke alarms on every floor of their properties. They will also need to provide a Carbon Monoxide detector where the property burns solid fuel.

Landlords will have to check that the alarm works properly at the start of every tenancy.
