Just got a bill for council tax from a house that I rent out!
When did it change from being the responsibly of the tenant to the responsibly of the Landlord for it to be paid?
How do I deal with this?
I've told the girls that live their that they must apply for their student discount and register for council tax.
But in the future if I rent to non student, or they don't actually pull their fingers out and do it, what then?
I ask for a deposit of a months rent. That deposit would not cover council tax for a year. And I wouldn't get a bill until long after they have left. Do I next time take a deposit of a months rent, AND a full council tax for the rental period? That seems like a huge amount.
Am I just being naive and this is the new way.
