  1. Just got off the phone with their office..

    . Gave my details and whatnot,


    explained the letter to the woman on the phone and apparently they "review" arrangements every 3 months (I don't recall anything like this before) to make sure my financial arrangements haven't changed.


    She confirmed that I'll continue to pay the £50 on Wednesday (my usual payment day) and that was that... Weird. Fingers crossed that's the end of that then.

  2. There hasn't been any improvement in fact, there's been a decline in my financial situation since making the original Income & Expenditure (which I have proof of) hence why it's a squeeze at the moment, although I do continue to pay as I said.

    Yes there is a vehicle but it's parked elsewhere, very much elsewhere.


    back when this began a bailiff showed at my door while I was out and left a notice with all their threatening language and whatnot (never actually spoke to any bailiff directly).


    Called up Jacobs and we made the payment arrangement after going through the whole Income & Expenditure forms and the amount I stated (£50 a fortnight) is what I've been paying for month and months now, had no bother at all, I just make a payment online and print off receipts as proof, just in case.


    Then out of the blue, I receive this letter (quoted in my original post - verbatim) saying that they want more.

  3. I received a letter from Jacobs today regarding our current arrangement for council tax debt. I'm extremely frustrated, I have never missed a payment with them and even now our current arrangement is a bit of a squeeze, but I pay non the less.


    We write regarding your current arrangement of £50 every 14 to clear your debt by installments.


    As this arrangement has been in place for some time, and due to the length of time in which our clients allow us to collect their debts, we must now review this arrangement.


    In view of this we need increase your payments, and we therefore ask that you contact our office within 7 days so that the matter can be discussed further.


    Please note: if we do not hear from you, your current arrangement may be immediately cancelled. This could result in further action taking place which therefor means additional fees may also be incurred.


    We look forward to hearing from you.

    Letter dated Aug 2, 2017.


    I really cannot afford to pay anymore than our current arrangement, I'm obviously going to call them but, I'm not sure what to say/do I can't deal with Bailiffs at my house again, I was a mess last time.
