    Help. I know very little about Council Tax Liability so I hope some kind person out there will be able to put me right.

    Mr Smith and Mrs Brown are pensioners in their eighties, who decide they will move in together for mutual help and support. Mrs Brown puts her flat up for sale and Mr Smith transfers into a two bed roomed sheltered flat.

    Whilst doing a benefit check I noticed two payments made to the LA coming out of their bank account, Joint account which they both pay equal amounts into for bills.

    When I questioned the LA I was told she had had a discount for the first six months but she was not allowed any further discount as the property was not fully furnished. I asked about the single occupancy, but because there were zero occupants she could not have one. All seems very unfair to me…
