I hope someone can help here. My parents are in a Tenant Purchase Scheme with the Co Council for their house, and have always thought because the house was 'Rent to Buy' they didn't have to pay property tax until the house is paid for. Recently when applying for a grant for them i was asked for either a receipt or an exemption for Property tax from Revenue, so i contacted Revenue and they said as they were in a Tenant Purchase Scheme they would be exempt but they needed a letter from the Council, so i went back to the Council and asked for a letter and they said they couldn't provide one as my Parents are the official owners of the house and they only have an interest in it until the mortgage is paid for and that my parents would be liable to pay the Property tax not them. I'm afraid now to go any further with this in case they end up with a huge bill for Property tax and they other taxes previous to this. Would anyone have any information, or tell me who to speak to next about this?
