If you are experiencing financial hardship due to the coronavirus, you can apply for Council Tax Support online. It is important that you pay your council tax, but if you are struggling to do so, you can contact the support team to discuss payment options.
Set up your account
If you've just moved in or become liable for Council Tax at your property:
Choose the 'I am moving into Lambeth' option. You'll complete an online form and you'll get the chance to set up a Direct Debit. We'll then send out your first bill.
Pay by Direct Debit
Setting up a Direct Debit is quick and easy. You'll need your:
- Council Tax account number
- bank name, branch and sort code
- bank account number and name(s) on the account.
To change your Direct Debit, fill in a new form.
You can also set up your Direct Debit over the phone: call 0345 302 2312
