3. My rent is inclusive of rates, so why do I get a bill?

Liability for business rates rests with the person entitled to beneficial occupation (normally the occupier) of a property, irrespective of any third party agreement.

You should discuss this with your landlord, as agreements between landlords and their tenants are a matter between themselves and are not binding on us in the event of any dispute between those parties.
