When is the landlord responsible on an unoccupied property?
You will be responsible for Council Tax when the property does not have a current tenant, unless the outgoing tenant remains liable as they have failed to meet their obligations to terminate the tenancy as set out in a signed tenancy agreement. If you believe you are being charged incorrectly for an unoccupied property, please supply full details and a copy of the tenancy agreement to Council Tax, Riverside House, Main Street, Rotherham, S60 1AE or contact us online
When is the landlord responsible on an occupied property?
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).
