BLZ posted a topic in Local Authority, Council Tax and Business Rates IssuesHello all, Back in August, I've notified my local council that I have vacated the property, and moved to Spain. My tenancy agreement terminates in Feburary 2019, although I paid the remainder to the landlord, the council told me that I'm still liable to pay council tax (covering the period up to 31/03/2019) even if I no longer live in the property, unless someone else moves in. However the landlord has decided to put the property for sale and is struggling to find a buyer. Since I have set up a post redirection service, I have received a CT summons letter on my new address in Spain. It states that if I don't pay, I will have a liability order against me. I've read somewhere that if the landlord accepts the keys back, I'm no longer liable for paying council tax. Is this true?
