Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Untrue. It gets updated every year at least as there is a form sent to every household. You can also amend details whenever you wish via council websites. A non-reply to the letter to neither confirm nor amend details is subject to a 1k fine. If someone didn't take your name off it could have affected their council tax, home and contents insurance etc.
So, if it was left on after you left that address and were no longer paying Council Tax... It's more than an oopsy. It makes both you and the folk not checking who is determined to be officially at their address both idots and potentially liable.
It was a student house and I have never paid council tax or home insurance in the UK, so none of that is relevant and it wouldn't have affected those who were residing there in subsequent years.

It only gets updated if someone fills something in and sends it off. This was 20 years ago. I was taken off a couple of years after leaving.
