COUNCIL TAX CON
I expect most of you only have one house so what I am going to say will not affect you but as a landlord of several flats there is a con in my eyes with regard to Council Tax. If one of my flats is empty for more then 6 months (or any property) I have to pay 80% Council Tax on that property! Why there is no one living there so what is the Council Tax being spent on? Why cannot I own a property and leave it empty, it does not cost the Council or the government anything? Once again it is a way of taxing people by the back door.
