Landlord responsibilities for Council Tax

The type of letting arrangement will affect who pays the Council Tax on a rented property.

When is the landlord responsible?

You will be responsible for Council Tax if the tenants only rent part of the property. For example, a bedroom in a house. We call this a house in multiple occupation. We will send the bill to you.

When is the tenant responsible?

Your tenant(s) will be responsible for Council Tax when you rent the whole of the property to one person or family, or to joint tenants. We will send the bill to your tenant(s).
