Hello, my name is***** am a licensed lawyer from the UK.
I do agree this is illegal and abusive.
Unoccupied and substantially unfurnished properties will be subject to a discount of anywhere between 0% and 100% of their normal rate of Council Tax, at the individual council’s discretion.
I would advise to provide an explanatory letter stating that due to the fact that he was not living in the property until June 2019, he would be legally entitled to a substantial council tax discount.
