Thanks for your answer but unfortunately it did not help me too much because i still did not know what shell I do now?
Now it is obviously that this dodgy landlord does not want to pay council tax from all the 5 separate flat.That's why he does not do anything to sort out my trouble because he knows he would be in trouble if the council would know there are 5 separate flat in the house what are let out.
So,if I pay my own council tax bill from next month and also pay the outstanding 3 month bills as well and cut it down from my next month rent can he do something against me (exmp.kick me out of here?)
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.
So,you said if I cut down the council tax from the monthly rent I have a risk to lose the property.
But if I ask help from council by letting them know what is the situation in this house I also can lose the flat because this is the thing what the landlord wants to avoid and keep secret and will be very angry with me and kick me out of here....so same result.
So,at the moment I have 3 option.
-Cut down the council tax but take a risk to lose the flat.
-Ask help from council by report the case what means to take a risk to lose the flat because of the landlord will be angry with me.
-Do not do anything pay my full rent to the landlord cary on my outstanding council tax and wait for council will make sanctions against me.
So,this is what a person like me can do if I want to leave an honest life and meet my obligations?
It is not a lovely future Sam!
I did not get cleverer what I was when we started the conversation but at least I know I'm not guilty.But if I pay the tax the landlord will kick us out of here if I do not pay the tax the council will kick my ass.
Thank you very much for advises and all the best!
