    Council Tax and Insurance with missing Tenant

    My tenant hasn't been in the property for a little while (well over a month) and my tenancy agreement states it should not be left unoccuppied, I am also looking at taking posession back, so wanted to know,

    Although the tenant is still in posession of the property would the fact the property is being left unattended mean I have to inform my insurance so that they are aware the tenant is not there (that's going to up my premiums)!

    And at what point do I become liable for Council Tax - when I get posession back, there is a possibility the house could be deemed abandoned - do I need to inform the council?

    thanks
