  1. Sorted! I received a refund for the overpaid council tax with no issues. Thanks a million for the help.
  2. The university tell the council that a student on continuation status is effectively a part time student even though that was not the case. I was studying more than full time hours. The council require proof from the university of full time student status. The uni give you a continuation status sheet to give them.
  3. That is encouraging. Thanks!. However, the council don't seem to be the problem. The university I was at has a policy of recording what it calls "Continuing" postgrad students as part-time even when they are not and sending that information on to the council. This issue is apparently ongoing even after all these years.
  4. This was quite a while ago. I've been going though my 2005 statements due to a problem with bank and have realised that I paid at least £600 of c/tax within a 5-month period. I was a full-time student at the time. Were students exempt from c/tax at this time? If so, what are the chances of recovering the sums paid? Thanks
  5. Thanks for reply. I did ask them for copies of any communications (written, memos notes on conversations etc) that they made to any other body about my account. Am surprised they only sent a copy of a letter recently sent to them by a collection agency. I wanted to see what they wrote to other agencies about my account, are they obliged to send that to me? Thanks again. (I will pursue it with ombudsman but would like to see that piece of info first)
  6. Hi, Local authority is pursuing a disputed sum from 2014-15 council tax period. Having refused a monthly offer of £5 monthly while I was still on Universal Credit the council got straight in touch with UC to make monthly deductions for the amount that it wanted (which UC later granted). LA contacted UC on the same day that it refused my offer / same day that it dismissed my formal complaint about LA's handling of the matter. I think the LA may managed to make the direct UC deductions on the basis of false info that I was struggling with current ctax payments - not the case
