Got a letter 4 days ago from the council saying they had rebanded my house and because of how busy they were with all the requests from people wanting there rebanding reduced it had taken them so long to get around to check my house ( I never requested a reband) because the house had an extension put on in 2004 by the previous owners and we moved in in august 2008, so now they want backdated Council tax from 2008 when we moved in which works out at nearly £500.
Going to go down and see them on Friday as we fly out on 2 weeks on holiday and cant just magic up 500 quid like that, if the band has to go up then so be it but we never knew anything about it until the letter and feel it's unfair for them to ask for 2 years difference in tax bands.
I will suggest a payment plan or something but can they do this???
What do you think.
