Hi, thanks for the replies,
I got a bit mixed up with my figures, the amount the bailiffs have is around 1500, the council have kept some back which I am paying at £50 per month, the current year is being paid at £25 per week.
I am still on a zero hour contract and before last week I had no work for 3 weeks, I have non dependents living at home so cannot claim benefit, I literally earned £400 last month, there is no way I can clear this debt and pay the council as well.
My gripe was they were not even willing to listen to my situation until I paid this amount, they are aggressive and rude on the phone, I am thinking of complaining to the council about the firm they have chosen as surely its better to get some payment of me instead of refusing to negotiate.
I have got myself in such a pickle because of this zero hour contract and I am more than 100% sure I will be evicted from my property within the next month. I owe £3k rent arrears which luckily my family are helping me out with, currently paying £500 per week so I can try and avoid eviction.
I literally dont know which way to turn
