    • It definitely has to be 100% or they have pulled a fast one on you - even before the govt clarified on this I found advise to this end that it has to be pre-furlough pay.

    • ok, bit more info i should have stated. The claim was started within the 6 years stat limitation. the hearing was after 6 years had expired and so was the strike out. It is now 8 years past default notice, and i have not heard anything since strike out for 1.5 years. surely another claim for the same terminated account is timebarred, even if they change the amount to a lesser amount.   the issue is the oc bank has written to me stating i am due a refund of wrongly taken charges and interest FROM 2011 and have applied the refund to the os balance, which is with the purchaser company who was struck out. The oc say they have informed the purchaser of the revised balance, which means the claim against me by the purchaser was for the wrong balance. surely this does not mean thy could use this balance for a new claim 8 years later? this smells like a trick.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

We recently received a Notice of Liability Order for non payment of council tax.

 

What has happen is my wife has buried her head in the sand and as a result I now find that the £100 a month we had been paying a month has been used to pay off the arrears from last year. BTW these were caused by the council giving us Council Tax credits and then taking them away 6 months later!

 

On the letter from the council it states that we are required by law to return the questionnaire overleaf and that it is a criminal of fence not to.

 

Is this true?

What happens if we don't?

What happens if we do not give them all the information they want?

How long do we have?

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Speak to the council and see if they will accept an arrangement to pay off the arears. You will probably need to send the form back or they will just pass your account to Bailiffs who will start adding more fees and cause more problems. Best thing is to keep it with the council and speak to them asap.

Thanks lizziekwitta but as they have ignored 8 letters so far I am not sure whether talking to them will make any difference! They just have it there minds that we can afford to pay! Well we can't even keep up with the mortgage at present so I don't see how the council can expect more than what we have already offered (in the letters).

The probable outcome is we will lose our house, they will have to put us up and I will then be able to claim housing benefit and they will be happy because with housing benefit and no mortgage I would be able to afford the council tax!

What happens if we don't? You will receive a fine and i think court/administration costs also

What happens if we do not give them all the information they want? As above

How long do we have? not quite sure 7/14 days

I don't know if this is any help or relates to your particular situation, but I have an excel spread sheet (below) with all kinds of council tax related data, unfortunately it relates to 2007-2008. If you look down the columns BH and BI of the document, I would think this relates to the questionnaire you're talking about. The YES, NO or ** relates to:

 

1. Yes they do implement the penalties.

2. No they don't implement the penalties.

3. ** Have not supplied this information.

 

This is my interpretation of it anyway. What do you think?

Thanks outlawla,

 

Very interesting spreadsheet!

I would agree that column BH is for the questionnaire they sent out.

Apparently my council doesn't prosecute but I suspect they will first try the IUC route to try and scare the s*** out of us - won't work.

 

The thing that really P***** me off is that they already have had every f*** detail of our finances when we applied for Council Tax Credits!

 

Well we will fill it in anyway not sure if I want them to know our employers but they know this anyway so what is the point?
