Thanks
It is ALWAYS the tenant in England, unless of course they are a scrounger. This can be a hefty sum to consider depending on which borough you live in.

You can claim discounts for various things. For example: If a spouse, civil partner or a dependant of a student who is a non British Citizen and who is not allowed under immigration rules, either to work in the UK or claim benefit you would receive at 25% discount.
