I, the landlord, am responsible for paying council tax. The council however, has demanded that I must inform them of the names of all tenants and keep them updated if a new tenant moves in.
I was not aware of this legislation and cannot find any references to it. I have queried it with the council, but it says there are penalties that can be applied if the information is not supplied within 21 days. I should add I am not in dispute with the council on any outstanding matters.
This demand came after I queried an incorrect demand for tax payment although it was paid in full in April 2018. It has agreed my account is up to date and has withdrawn the bill.
Does anyone know whether a landlord must inform the council every time a tenant changes. It seems incredibly onerous, not least on the council itself.
What would it do with the information? I am baffled.
