Is tenant leaving early liable for the council tax till I can relet?
I had a tenant recently, who left at very short notice, 3 months into a 6 month AST. He had been messing me around so I'm relieved that he has gone, despite leaving me a messy house. I have got most of the last months rent through the DPS thankfully. I have new tenants due to move in on 3rd March. He has told The council that he left on the 10th January, so they have sent me a bill from that date.
Since he was on a 6 month AST isn't he liable for the council tax till the 3rd March?
Advice appreciate. Thanks.
