Hi Folks

 

A tenant living in my BTL has left the property without telling me and so now I want the council tax bill to come in my name.  However, the council tax office want proof that the tenant is no longer living in my BTL.

 

Can someone be kind enough to advice how to prove this?

 

Thanks

A deceptively simple question which opens a can of many worms.  A tenant doing a runner does not end the tenancy, you may have to go to court to obtain possession, a lengthy and expensive process. 

Before a reply can be given it is necessary to know if the tenancy was in the fixed period or the periodic period and if the latter whether it was a statutory periodic (the default) or contractual periodic (defined by the AST)?

Why on earth should you wish to pay the council tax when it is possible that the tenant is liable?
