NO Taxation WITHOUT Representation!

I don't think so - It' where you are registered on the electoral roll that counts. You cannot vote in the areas of other owned property.
Council tax is payable by an owner in the end if the property is unoccupied, capable of occupation with (if necessary) repairs effected to make it so and is not exempt. You get no representational capability in that case - but your vacated tenant could well do.
More relevant is that my Company needs premises to operate,
pays corporation tax, business rates on these and vacant units as described above, pays Corporation tax, contributes to employees NI and Pension funding - and has no power in the selection of the statutory power brokers of our democracy nor any statutory rights of consultation.
What MP cares much for a voteless corpse?

Soon to be Homeless Landlord

This is common practice. Certainly with Dartford and Gravesend B C's. They (we) have to pay for temporary accommodation for the homeless so as they are squeezed they resort to any method to dodge their legal obligation. In Dartford not long ago when we had a Court order for possession their instruction (not advice) to a tenant was to "wait for the bailiffs".
When challenged by me at a private sector landlord meeting, the person in charge just shrugged and beat a quick exit after the meeting!
The Court process and up to possession will take about 4 months and total losses amount to at least £3500 + present arrears assuming 4 months to possession. If you can, get High Court bailiff - much more effective but not always possible. Hope you had a good guarantor!
Waste of time dealing with Local Authority.... Read More
