I have received a recorded delivery letter telling me that my council has applied for sequestration over my arrears. They are looking for an agreement to be in place and can only accept payment by bankers draft due to money laundering rules. I have only started trying to get my finances in order and this has hit me like a ton of bricks. What can I do ? can anyone help please.

I i think they would rather you pay something than get nothing.

 

I would send theman offer of payment and to help, make up your own income and expenditure sheet to go along with it

Ive been in ct arrears for a long time, ignored mostly, usual letters from their enforcers.

Thankfully ive never recieved seq notices at all or a charge or sheriff officers.

 

I contacted the council personally and set up a very generous repayment schedule. Well not generous but it got them off my back. I have a payment card i pay into weekly.

I have just arranged to pay off council tax arrears with sheriff officers at £60 per month. They also said something about my ex having to set up a separate payment arrangement. He does not live here any more and although I know we were jointly responsible for the arrears, i dont want him involved any more as my life will not be worth living if he discovers any thing about the arrears. Everything else financial was completely separate for a number of years. Can I take complete responsibilty and cut him out of my life?

As the debt is joint and several, I would suggest that he cannot be completely cut out the picture, nevertheless it is not up to you to provide information to Sheriff officers . If they want to pursue your ex, it is up to them to do the chasing without any involvement from you.

 

This tactic sounds like Walker Love on the telephone, would I be correct.

No it is Alex M adamson. The point is that for my safety I do not want any approach to be made to him.

You cannot stop them approaching him I'm afraid. The only gauranteed way to do that would to pay the arrears in full so there would be no contact needed.

I have been in reciept of a discount of my CT this year. 25% single person as my daughter is on JSA. I got a letter from the "verification team" of my local council advising that they intend to visit my property next week to confirm that I am eligible. They expect me to produce evidence of income and other ID. Whats all this about? I provided all this when I applied and was granted the discount.Are they allowed to visit at a time that doesnt suit. All they have given me is a date. No time or even time slot. I work full time

Hiya,

 

I have had one of these 'visits' - it is just a verification process where they will take copies of your paperwork - if the day does not suit call them up and they can arrange another day with a timeslot for you
