Does rent include council tax?
Generally speaking I mean. Do most landlords cover the council tax in the rent they charge you or do you have to find that on top of the rent?
Asking as we are selling and moving to rented....long story.

The only time a landlord is actually legally responsible for paying council tax in case anyone out there is interested is when it is multi-occupied. ie where they rent individual rooms out so you only have access to your bedroom and then any communal area such as kitchen/lounge. Mostly student lets.
Oh and watch for any landlord retaining any part of the property for himself ie a locked room where they store their stuff as technically you don't have access to the entire property.
No, no, I don't miss my job billing and collecting council tax and buisness rates at all, happy SAHM! (most of the time)
