Recently I just received a council tax bill for £407, addressed to me with a secondary address reference to a recent buy to let, at first I assumed they had sent it me and was the tenant’s bill.
The dates on bill related to the purchase date and tenant start over a 4 month period. I rang them to query as the house was unoccupied, unfurnished and under full renovation so had no facilities and not fit for occupancy.
I argued the case, but she was adamant that I get 100% relief for first month and 50% for the following months and from April just 100% the first month then no further allowance.
I still wasn’t happy asking why am I paying it, she said the allowance must have already been used on the property before purchase, I said that’s not even fair or logical, so I am challenging the bill and sent pictures of works etc to them for evaluation.
Can anyone shed some light in this as never had a bill off any of previous properties. The property was empty and bought at auction.
