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

I bought a derelict flat next to West of Scotland university in Paisley (it had been empty for a number of years ) and I converted it to a 4bed flat.
Initially the assessor gave it a council tax banding of Band C which is OK to this point.
The HMO Licence was granted the assessor then came back banding each of the 4 rooms individually in band A category, so effectively getting 4 council tax payments from one property!
The flat is rented on a single short assured tenancy.
Has anyone came across this situation or has any experience in such matters?
I have appealed.
