There is a floor attached to the contract, and certain areas are marked as the common area.
Regarding the business rates there is only one line in the contract saying, 'Business rates/council tax is also not included in the rent and the same is the Tenant's responsibility.'
I am wondering if it's common in practice that the tenants pay for the business rates for the whole floor? I assume it'd be very difficult for the council to separate the bills for the same floor in the same building?
I did not find anything elso re the business rates apart from the one line I sent just now.
The tenant has been paying for the rates relating to the common area for the past a couple of years. Would this mean anything to the court?
