Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Does the tenancy agreement say the landlord is liable for council tax?
OK, then you dont need to worry. If the Landlord has NOT paid the Council tax then you are not liable.
It is a matter between the Council and Landlord.
Therefore you are not liable.
Even if, for whatever reason, you decided to pay the Council Tax you could deduct it from the rent.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
