Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. A lodger is a person who shares accommodation with the homeowner. This is a separate property. It should be handed separately from the main house for council tax purposes and any tenant would be responsible for council tax. It is not an annexe to your house because it is not annexed to your house. You can seek further clarification from the assessor but in my experience of other councils that is not what they do. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited by JustAnswer for helping you today.
