I have continuous issue with the council on the council tax. I have read similar threads already, but none same. In mid march 2015 I suspected that my tenants had abandoned (rents not paid etc). During the property inspection they left sufficient furniture and items. To be legally cautious, I left notice of abandonment to repossess the property in one month time. The property subsequently cleared out on mid April followed by extensive refurbishment and finally rented out on mid July. I expect to get the three month empty 100% council tax discount (mid April to Mid July). But the council says that the Tenants had registered their Council Tax to a different address on end of January, so the unoccupied 100% discount 3 months already given before I took back the property in mid April. I believe that the 3 months discount should start on mid April because the property was furnished and tenanted. And before mid April I should not be responsible for the Council Tax. I do not know how best to push the issue with the council tax people.
