I purchased a property about 18 months ago in the Falkirk District.
It needed some refurbishment so was empty for a few months and I applied for and received a council tax exemption.
Falkirk Council allow a 6 month tax exemption if property is unoccupied and unfurnished.
However, I recently received a letter informing me that as the previous occupant had now claimed tax exemption prior to me purchasing the property, my exemption was backdated and I now owed the council some tax.
Has this ever happened to anyone else and can the council do this?
Thanks for your help
