Council Tax liability appeal and I have no copy of the AST!

Urgent help- I am due to go to a tribunal to appeal my responsibility as owner to having to pay council tax. paperwork

Unfortunately I do not have a copy of the signed tenancy agreement as I handed it over to the tenant who urgently needed it for his benefits. We agreed he would copy and post me a copy. I only have text message exchanges where the tenant enquirers about the property, I ask about whose name the tenancy is going on and forward my bank details for housing benefits after the tenant requested them.

I also have evidence of a bailiff letter, a summons for non payment of council tax all of which are in the tenants name. I also have a copy of the email I sent to the council notifying them of the tenants.

Any advise with regards to this issue would be appreciated.

My AST continues as a contractual periodic after the fixed term. The tenant is thus responsible for Council Tax until the tenancy is formally ended, this means that if the tenant does a runner without giving notice he remains legally responsible for council tax.

To to clarify my last post - by 'In the case of above' it refers to the first paragraph of my post and not Colin's earlier post.

The contractual aspect covers your backside until the tenancy actually ends whereas the periodic doesn't.
