Hi,

My friend's had a visit from Bristow and Sutor for unpaid Council Tax totalling around £300. She didn't answer the door but they posted her a nice letter demanding £65 a week!

She works part time and sometimes looks after her grand daughter. She asked me to get in touch with the council by e mail and also Bristow and make an offer of £50 a month, this would leave her short but she just wants it paid off.

Today Bristow and Sutor have replied saying they wont budge on their repayment plan and will be calling again soon. We've already told them they wont get let in and she wont open the door.

Where does she go from here?

Thanks for any advice.

Sit tight, do not let them in, do not sign anything, park car away from the house if she owns one. The bailiffs will get fed up and move on. Bailiffs transferred my case back to the council. Now dealing directly with them again. Make payments via councils online payment service. Most of all, tell your friend to stay calm.

Thanks calvi. She doesnt drive so no car. She knows not to answer the door or let them in. We wondered if there was any way of going back to court to show what she can afford and get a judge to agree a repayment plan?

Not really. The court has issued a liability order. The council have used this to give the bailiffs the power to recover the money owed. They kept at me for 3 months and eventually passed it back to the council when they knew they would not gain peaceful entry. The levied my car, they got a fax stating it was a contract hire car lol, poor wee shame. Do not phone the bailiff company, infact don't contact them at all unless it was a levy similar to mine above. A magistrate will not look at a payment plan it is not their job at this stage. This could be done at a means hearing, but this is a long way off. Just get your friend to make her payments online. Best of luck.

Nice one. She can pay fifty quid at the end of the month when she gets paid. I'm sure they'll get bored eventually
