Ever since I moved into shared accommodation the letting agents and I have been in dispute over whose liable for council tax.

The  law says that with a HMO the landlord is responsible and have made my position clear to them.

Then the letting agents supplied the council with a joint tenancy agreement with 6 names and signatures including mine, we never signed a joint tenancy agreement and all the tenants and I have separate agreements. We even moved in at different times.I’ve informed the council of the fraudulent tenancy agreement and supplied the council with proof that we have separate agreements.

I’ve also contacted action fraud as they have used our names and signatures without our knowledge and our frauding us and the government.

I’m really stressed by the attitude that the letting agent has towards its customers and its had an aedverse affect on mine and other tenants mental health and fortitude, that said I am kind of excited to see how this plays out.

If anyone has been through this and has any advice to offer I would love to hear it.

You don’t seem to need more advice, as you’ve taken all the appropriate measures. Just to remind you though, have you contacted the landlord about this ? The letting agent is his / her employee, so the landlord can stop the nonsense pretty quickly.
