Just wondered if anyone could help with this
A bit convoluted but here we go
Have discovered recently that there's been a baliff visit to the house I used to live at regarding unpaid council tax for last year. The amount in question is the bill for the whole year, which was left unpaid for a number of reasons, lack of funds etc. Now in a position to pay all of it off, but having read some of the stuff on here and looking at the correspondence from Equitas and their charges, I don't feel particularly inclined to have anything to do with them. The complicated part of this is that the name on the bill and subsequent baliff notice is that of my landlord, none of the three tenants names are included on it, hence the letters addressed to him were never opened. The baliff has paid one visit to the house already, no one was at home, and was subsequently told by one of the guys who still lives there on the phone that the whole amount would be available very soon. Does the baliff even have any right to return to the house, given that the guy whose name is on the bill does not live there and further has never lived there? Have spoken to the council and they said that they pay the baliffs to recover debt so its a matter between us and them, although that they did mention that they would take the debt back in 'exceptional circumstances'
Right thats enough, thanks in advance for any advice people
