What is the point of having different bands (A-G) for paying Council Tax if your property is a studio worth £25,000 in Liverpool?
Most properties are in Band “A” and that ranges from a five bedroom house to just a room with a kitchenette and build in bathroom.
So one large bedroom (self contained) pays the same as one large 5 bedroom house with two receptions, large bathroom, large kitchen, own rear patio and front garden.
Why are people who opt for the cheapest accommodation of a studio are having to pay the same Council Tax band as a large family in a large accommodation.
What is the point of a differentiated Band system when for the cheapest tenants there is not such a thing as differentiated?
What is the point for a landlord with several bedsits in a large house when any of the bedsits is empty he/she has to pay the full Council Tax for every bedsit?
On top f the Council tax, now is the Liverpool Licensing which again makes the landlord pay £400/£350 for every bedsit?
Of course, the landlord has the utilities bills to pay for during the empty periods which is the reason why many new bedsits or studios as is also refer go for the option of having a bathroom for the exclusive use of the studio but just outside the studio main door.
Why these anomalies are not rectify to charge tenants and landlords according to a specific “band”?
