The council were very sneaky and called our estate agents (how they know who the estate agents were I am not sure!) and asked them if the property was furnished or not. They kindly told the council tax people that the property was furnished.
We also have a property in Kingston and this council, instead of giving me a pathetic 10% discount on the council tax bill when the property is vacant, actually charge only about 10%.
It seems to me to be a gross mis-justice that I have to pay council tax on a property I donít live in just because it is vacant and furnished. Have you ever helped a landlord successfully appeal such a case before?
