So yes,it is a two floor house.There are two flat on the ground floor,two on the first floor and ours on the second floor.
All of us have separate key to our flat,and all the flats comes with kitchen and buthroom too.3 of them are studio flats,ours and the other two are 1 bedroom flats.
I just read over the tenancy agreement and unfortunately there is nothing mentioned that the council tax is inclusive they just told us when we moved in and also it was told to the other 4 tenants too.The electricity is not inclusive because it is working with those top up cards so we need to top up the meters separately in every single flat.But we do not pay for nothing else like water,gas,council tax,they said is inclusive!
So I mean that's why we do it because the water the gas meter are on the landlord's name so they are not separated on each flat he can pay them.But he wants to save the council tax cost,by did not informed the council that the house is not one big house anymore there are already 5 separate flats made inside the house.Because if it would be just one house like before he should pay only one council tax but how it is made now he should pay 5 differend council tax because there are 5 flat made in the house.I just suspect it....
But anyway I wrote a mail for his agency today that if he does not sort it out in the next two weeks from August I pay my council tax separately and I cut it down from the monthly rent.Can I do it like this?Is it legal?
But there is an other question.If the council was not informed about these 5 separate flats made in the house how could they estimate how much I need to pay for this flat?!
This house is so mysterious.
