This means it is:

  • forms part of a single property
  • can’t be let separately from the property without a breach of planning control.

If the annexe your dependant relative lives in as their only home forms part of another property and has a different Council Tax band, it may be exempt.

A relative is classed as a dependant if they are:

  • over 65
  • substantially or permanently disabled
  • severely mentally impaired.
