I have a property (flat)with three bedrooms one on suite, a separate shower a small kitchen and a lounge.
I rented the property to an individual then a girl friend wanted to rent one of the rooms.I gave them separate tenancy agreements.
They claimed housing allowance and council tax.
I included services in the rental and paid their council tax bill for them.
The couple moved out recently to another property.
I have now received a council tax bill for the period they occupied the property of 827-59.
The council has informed me I was liable for the council tax during the period they occupied the flat as it is classed as a H.M.O. and the landlord should have paid for the council tax at a different rate.
My 2 questions are 1) Should the property be classed as a HMO. I was under the impression it was 3 or more people.
2) Am I liable to pay council tax as the property is now furnished but empty.

Yours Sincerely
