  • Not normally. Council Tax is payable by the occupier.

  • Council tax and other bills are usually extra.

  • Hey ctdoogan55, I know this has been answered but I feel like I can add some depth to this question: Rental properties can sometimes include council tax and that’s more often the case in a flat let house, otherwise known as a house in multiple occupation or student accommodation. Generally domestic properties, flats and houses and so on, don’t include the council tax within the rent, but what you need to do is to check carefully with agent or the landlord before you sign. The difference can make thousands of pounds a year to you. Also make sure anything you have been told is reflected within the tenancy agreement itself, just so there are no nasty surprises. Hope that helps you or anyone else reading this! Jonathan Rolande :-)

  • Sometimes "Monthly running costs" doesn't include the Council Tax. Property description doesn't mention the council tax either.
