Student Council tax exemption – Proof required?

Student Council tax exemption – Proof required?

Portsmouth Council are bugging me for details of my student tenants’ courses and student status. They claim I have to provide this as I am liable for the council tax.

I can do no more than provide them with the names of the tenant who are clearly ignoring the council’s request for information and proof of student status.

Where do I stand?

Many thanks

This isn't feasible either way - if you've got signed AST's before the term starts as you should have, you can't put up the rent or evict them.
