    Over due council tax & court summons from missing T

    The council has sent me a court summons regards overdue council tax because I cannot give them a tenancy agreement for a past tenant who should have paid. Is this normal?

    yes as without proving your tenant was in occupation they will look to you as the property owner.
    I suggest that you find any documentation that you can in this respect and send it to them as soon as possible.
    Did you write to them at the start of the tenancy to let them know you had an ingoing tenant?

      Thanks, I didn't write to them at the beginning since I believed the council had the duty of making contact with the tenant or vice versa.

        yes the tenant ultimately has the responsibilty of making payment for the utility bills but obviously has opted not to make the arrangements.
        If you can provide forwarding information, previous addresses any information which will help them to find him they will back off.
        Obviously if you can get the tenancy or provide accounting information to prove there was an income from the property they will have no option but to follow up with the only person they can hold accountable

          Surely you have enough details about the tenant to be able to prove who he/she/they was/were? What about post sent to the premises and perhaps utility bills
          The advice I give should not be construed as a definitive answer, and is without prejudice or liability. You are advised to consult a specialist solicitor or other person of equal legal standing.
