Apologies if this has been raised before etc. Anyway, I'm in Germany and have a property in Scotland. For reasons too complicated to bore everyone with the house is fully furnished and not rented out to anyone. I was recently told by someone that if I get posted to UK I would be eligible for some sort of GYH allowance paid monthly to visit and check my property whether I did so or not. Is this true? If so I could be much better off, as at the moment I am hammered for both council tax and CILOCT. Thanks in advance and before anyone asks/comments; no,I cant just ask at the RAO's. Again the reasons are too complicated and boring to put on here.
