Hello, we had a tenant vacate our property on August 31st and a new tenant moving in on 2nd October, so empty for a month.
The council gives a 100% discount for council tax for one month only for an empty unfurnished property. My issue is the tenant informed the council a month prior to moving out that it was empty and they had left thus not having to pay for the last months’ council tax.
Will I be liable for the council tax full rate during the void period? Now I have asked the managing agent if the property was empty, apparently, there were boxes and they had not fully moved out but probably not living there. So how can I proceed?
Should the council not have agreed to this as it is a rented property or is the managing agent at fault?
