that's were I got the letter from the council I didn't really live there as my dad didn't want me there

Just Answer has lost my reply. It is the property which is registered for council tax not the individual. There is one situation where this does not apply and that is where there is only one occupant claiming the 25% discount. Then an additional person there results in the loss of the discount. This my be what the local council is hinting.
Otherwise it is mere fishing by the council, just put the letter in the bin.

will they believe me if I say I was a drifter and want to register now as my father has gone

Expert:  bigduckontax replied 2 years ago.
I just would not respond at all to such fishing expeditions.
The only situation in which they would be acceptable is were you residing with a person on discount in circumstances in which the discount should be lost.
