Council Tax Second Letter Before Appeal – More Detail

This template is a more extensive letter before appeal should this not work in the first instance (and both these letter have been used by us in a genuine case with full success).


Product code: LT402

Under the council tax rules introduced in 2013, it’s possible landlords will have much more council tax to pay where a property becomes vacant. However, where a tenant fails to give correct notice, the tenant continues to be liable until the property is re-let or the landlord accepts a surrender where our tenancy agreement has been used (where tenancy goes contractual periodic and not statutory periodic).

As a result, a landlord may wish to appeal a decision to make the landlord liable and ask that the tenant continues to be liable until proper notice is given. Before an appeal is lodged, a letter must be served by the aggrieved person on the local authority [s.16 Local Government Finance Act 1992].

This template is a second (and quite in-depth) letter before appeal against council tax liability after the local authority have already responded to a first letter and refused to change their decision. The template is on the basis of no notice given by a tenant but it can be modified with whatever grounds you wish to insert. This letter has been used by us in a genuine case with full success. It has various facts and dates which you will need to change but it’s a good starting point.

The template is in rich text format (RTF) so will work on all word processors including Microsoft Word.
