On what basis are they saying you are liable to pay the council tax if she was the one paying it?
She would be the "liable" person to pay the council tax and since the debt arose during her lifetime it would be a debt of her estate.
The liable person to pay tax is usually the owner or tenant if renting , if a couple live there both are "liable".
Since none of these apply I think the council are trying it on.
I hope this assists if there are any further points please reply I will be happy to respond.
