    Going periodic and payment of Council Tax

    My original fixed term contract states that I, the landlord, will pay the council tax. It is expiring and I wish to renew the tenancy (no rental increase) but change the responsability of paying the council tax to the tenant in the contract. If the tenant refuses to sign and allows the tenancy to go periodic can I still demand the tenant pay the council tax or not? Cheers.

    No, you can't change the terms of the contract without the T's agreement. You could, however, serve notice to increase the rent. See http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums...earchid=333041

      ...if the fixed term (inc. any earlier ones at same rent) ran for at least a year.
