I have recently been away from my rented flat as I have been looking after a very ill family member.
It was very stupid of me, but I never gave paying my council tax any thought.
I have been out of a job for awhile, and have only just started to apply for benefits.
When I returned to my property, I was greeted with a lovely notice of enforcement letter from Marstons Holdings, stating I had until the 10th April to pay.
Well I did not get back to the property till the 12th.
I have tried to contact Marstons directly, having no help whatsoever.
I have contacted the council recovery team at Leeds City Council, and they have put my account on hold for 14 days.
My question is
does this stop the bailiffs from being able to attend my property for 14 days also?
If not, has anyone else had dealings with Marstons, and how long did it take for them to attend your property after the due date on the notice of enforcement letter?
Thank you for taking the time to read my dilemma.
I look forward to reading your responses!
