I have a HMO property which is rented out with separate AST to individuals. As such the council tax is in my name and paid by me directly. Recently a tenant made me aware of a bin violation.
The local council has imposed a fine as on a further inspection the bins had not been filled correctly. They sent me a notice to the property address and not my correspondence address which they have as per my council tax records asking me to pay a £80 fine. This was reduced to £40 if paid within 10 days.
I only visited the property again yesterday which is some 20 days later than the date of the letter and they are threatening to prosecute. Can I protest with the council that they did not send me the letter to my correspondence address? They have this on record and have been sending my council tax bills and other matters to this address for year.
On another note, what would other HMO landlords do in regards to the council tax payment? I don’t see tenants sorting out payment for it between themselves so the only option is for me to continue paying them!
