Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I have had a full property management contract with a property company. They have recently sold the business to another company and the local council have issued me with a bill for unpaid council tax covering a large period when I have been receiving rent from the properties.
The agent insists that they gave the details to the council, but I am not sure I believe them in the light of other things that have become apparent recently. I have informed the council as to which dates I have invoices showing payments from the letting agent and I have clear dates that I am confident were not tenanted and I will of course pay those void periods.
However, if the agent does not provide the council with the the necessary details of the tenants who were living there and the council say they haven’t got them, am I responsible for the unpaid council tax.
I have contacted the redress company that the agent was affiliated with but they say they can’t help me.
