Council Tax liability -Sheltered Accommodation
I am an elderly sick and disabled man living in one room of sheltered accommodation facility. The facility is shared by 7 other residents. I am incapable of working. I receive DWP PIP and ESA benefits, and Housing Benefit. My Rent Breakdown includes a weekly charge of £2.61 for Council Tax. My question is: Even though the charge is paid for directly to my landlord from my Housing Benefit, is my landlord eligible to receive this payment each week, from 'MY' Housing Benefit? I believe that the landlord is liable to pay for Council Tax due to the nature of the facility? I would be very grateful for any sound advice/answers please.
