If you were a full time student, you would have been exempt from council tax, as long as you met the criteria set out here: https://www.gov.uk/council-tax/discount ... e-students

Its also statute barred under section 9 of the Limitation Act 1980.

  • 9 Time limit for actions for sums recoverable by statute.

    (1)An action to recover any sum recoverable by virtue of any enactment shall not be brought after the expiration of six years from the date on which the cause of action accrued.
