Hi, I'm seeking some advice regarding some Council Tax arrears I have with Highland Council. I was sequestrated on 20th May 2015 and discharged a year later. I was on the understanding that all debts leading upto & including my sequestration date was included within the sequestration. However, Highland Council have informed me that it's their policy to use the 'Date of First Order' as the date for any arrears, instead of my actual sequestration date. Here's Highland councils response to my enquiry: "Dear Mr frunko, Thank you for email dated 07.04.2017. The Date of First Order is the day that a person who has applied for sequestration is cited to court. After this date, the party is given a period of time to make payment (6 weeks) but if no payment is received within that period, it is Council policy that the 'First Order Date' is the date used when dealing with a sequestrated Council Tax account. Therefore, although you were sequestrated on the 20.05.2015 we had to use the 26.04.2015, as this was the date you were first cited to court." I was wondering if this policy is in line with Scottish law regarding sequestration? The reason I'm asking is because If the Highland Council used my actual sequestration date of 20th May 2015, the whole financial year 2015 - 2016 Council Tax arrears would be included within my sequestration as they had issued a 'final notice' letter before 20th May 2015. Your knowledge or thoughts on this would be very much appreciated. Thanks - Frank
Hi, I am posting this on a few of the Shop Direct posts as I have been working on 3 claims on behalf of a relative and want everybody who has been charged by them to reclaim their charges and all applicable interest as these are possibly the most arrogant of all the companies I have dealt with and will firstly refuse your requests and then as it goes on breach the court procedures and ignore the judges requests until they ultimately settle as of they have no defence and no desire to go in front of a judge. The final outcome on the claims is posted below as the e-mail sent to me for my relative. Shop Direct have still not paid the sums stated in the e-mails in full and have part paid so still looking to court. Please click the star if this is informative and feel free to contact or reply to this post for any assistance. I have just advised the defendant to make the following account credits, which I believe satisfy your *******'s claims: Claim No 1QT08206 re account ref ******** (Littlewoods) Credit to the account of £175.79 Claim No 1QT09646 re account ref ******** (Very) Credit to the account of £251.72 Claim No 1QT24916 re account ref ******** (Choice) Credit to the account of £137.12 - to include the charge of 30/4/11. I understand that the adjustments will take place on Monday. Regards
Hi Folks, Npower said my final bill was roughly £127. I checked the readings against what the estimated bill said then I paid roughly £80, which tied in exactly with the readings. They are now chasing me for £47 saying I'm due them, but all the communication is generic crap and they haven't responded to anything I send them. I've put in a formal complaint and asked for a copy of their complaints procedure. Are they likely to listen, or see sense? Anything else I should be doing/be aware of? I switched supplier around the 5th on august... cheers folks
My wife has recently been given her notice period letter for redundancy from her job along with 15 other members of staff. She has been given a 4 week notice period and is required to attend work as normal and complete her usual duties. Once the 4 weeks are up her employment will be terminated and redundancy package paid. My question is what is her date of redundancy? Is it the day notice was given or the final day of employment which will be 4 weeks later after she has worked the notice period. This is a very important question to us as it will determine whether she receives statutory maternity pay or not. Thank you for any help offered.
