Does anyone know of any legal arguments and cases in law re tribunal for council tax liability on one of my properties.
I have a property with two separate sets of deeds and the land I use myself and have my mail delivered to and the house on separate deed I rent and have DHS tenants being paid for by the council.
They have been receiving council tax discount (it is not an HMO just a single or joint tenancy). The council are insisting I live in the property with my tenants and have sent me a new bill for the last five years of council tax.
Are there any similar cases I could refer to and quote? I have a tribunal date booked in June and I are going to defend myself and try and change the council tax liability back to the tenants who were billed the first place then they changed it.
The tenant incidentally still receives her housing benefit for rent payments, but I am expected to pay the council tax for her it is the legal arguments and the cases I’m interested in and if anyone else has had that experience and what they did please?
