Council tax exemption - SMI

My father in law has Alzheimer's and has been summoned to court for not paying his council tax for the last 8 months and has been given a bill of £1563. We were unaware of the council tax exemption / SMI (severely mentally impaired) and we are in the process of getting this paper work sent off now, however I am not sure if this will be backdated/ write off the accumulated debt and the court summon. Does anyone have any experience with this or know who is best to contact regarding this? Thank you!
