Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

I have just ring my local Council Tax office to advise them that a tenant has vacated my property. I was advised that the tenant had already notified them and that the date given was 8th April 2014.
I advised them that the tenancy actually ended on 24th May 2014. I was then told that as the tenant was on a Rolling Tenancy, they were only liable for the Council Tax until the day they actually moved out, which I was told was the 8th!
I pointed out that the tenant still had the keys and was in cleaning etc for the remaining time and that I was not aware that he had moved out. The CT office said this was a relatively new ruling but could tell me no more. They did give me four weeks exemption to do any remedial works, but I have effectively lost half of that allowance!
Has anyone else come across this new decision?
