Hi, I recently bought a house and my parents will be living with me. Both of them get benefits and therefore are eligible for council tax discount. Is there any way I can add them to the council tax so I can apply for the discount? I am based in London.

From my knowledge they would only be able to apply for Council tax benefit if they were the ones that owned the house but savings do come in to play ( I think you have to have less than 8K ? to qualify) Hope this helps.
For a more specified answer go to Gov - council tax benefits for the current guidelines to make sure . (edited)
From the limited info you supplied it would appear it is a second adult rebate you are after. I suggest you write down all the facts and give your local citizens advice a call.
Previously you were extending/renovating your house, not moving? You sure you want them living with you??!!!
So there are ways to get discount, but may be down to how sympathetc the council are. (May also be different in which of the home nations you are in as well.)
