Census 2011.....

Kilty_2 Posts: 5,818 Forumite
Recieved my census forms the other day - addressed to the legal occupier presumably because I'm not on the electoral roll at this address. Letter was open when it arrived which I thought odd.

I only stay here Mon-Fri and I'm moving out at the end of next month.

Don't really want to bother filling it in but don't want to get fined either - would I get away with it since I'm not going to be living here much longer? Obviously the council know I stay here because I've informed them about my council tax situation (exempt due to being a student)

    It's probably taken longer to post this question than just fill it in. I did ours for me, my partner, and daughter last night and it took all of about 5 minutes.

    I'd just do it if I were you if you are going to be living there on 27th March

    If you were resident on the 27th of March you have to fill it in. Or you risk being fined £1000.

    They were open as they were hand delivered and the Enumerators needed to be able to open the form and go through it with the addressee if asked.

    It takes a few minutes online.
