I sold one of my rented houses and it was 4 months empty during this time. I found out that we have to oay full council tax on empty rented properties !
well, two of these months were at the end of Manchesters council,tax year and as they collected council tax over a ten month period, the two months should have been free after all, they collected the tax over the 10 months previously... except they are billing me for these two months as well as the April and May monhs of the new tax year.
This cant be right can it? I think collecting this tax on an empty property while its being sold is robbery btw..
