Presently the council tax for the whole house is in my name (only) and I pay it.
They mentioned they might want to sell the house in 2024
They want to put the rent up by 400 per month this next year 2023
they now want THEIR name on the council tax
They want ME to pay them the council tax amount
I think this fraud & they are trying to evade paying capital gains tax when they sell the property.
I think it’s a total cheek to ask for this AND a rent increase.
- my council tax receipt with my name is solid ID proof * * might be needed when I need to rent a new house.
I wonder if I agree to it if I would be breaking the law or just them?
I think if I confront them over this they may toss me out at the end of lease (in 4 months) and airB&B the house with short letts so they can pretend they live there / pick up post etc.
