My local council where I rent out my properties has since April been charging council tax for empty properties as soon as their empty. I have a case where in April [we think] a tenant who was on a periodic TA left. We were not sure that he left and only realised when no rent was forthcoming that he may have gone..Very carefully after nearly 4 weeks of attempting to contact him we took a chance and took possession [END OF June].We waited a few more weeks keeping all his possessions [mainly rubbish and some clothes] in the house. After that we stored his stuff redecorated the house and put it back on the market. A tenant finally moved in last week.
My question is who is responsible for the Council Tax? Will they chase me?or because there was no formal ending of the contract is the tenant liable?I have many cases like this in the past.
