I am a landlord and have forfeited a commercial lease, but my tenant has applied for relief from forfeiture. We are still waiting for a court date, however, the council is now pursuing me for business rates.
I have explained that the tenant has applied for relief from forfeiture and sent the council the court documents. We have also signed an undertaking that we could not remove his possessions and chattels. He has therefore stopped us from gaining possession/occupation and renting out the premises.
Who would be liable for the business rates bill?
