I'm hoping someone can help me, I've received a liability order from 11 years ago, it's the first I've heard of it, I've just moved back to northern Ireland after years of working away.

I completed my first year of university in liverpool, like most students I lived in halls. In the may at the end of term I signed a tenancy agreement for a house for the following year. I spent the summer at home in northern Ireland and decided to move uni back home. A friend of mine sublet my room from the other occupant of the house.

Fast forward 11 years and I receive a liability order for the property where I never lived. I called the council and explained, they said I would need proof that I didn't live there. So I got a letter from my ni uni to prove I attended there. So I was a full time student and not living there! The council has told me that I could only be classed as exempt as a student if I was a student in Liverpool! Madness. So they asked me to get more proof, I sent a letter from my bank 2 days ago.... Today I received a bailiff notice from marstons. Now as far as I know there are no bailiffs in ni so they can't follow this route. But can any one advise me on the council tax issue, surely I can't be held liable if I was a full time student regardless of where I studied. Advice would ve appreciated, I'm up the walls :-(

Just received the following e-mail from the council so it looks like I'm ok, its a huge relief, I had started to think that I was going to have to pay the money!


Thank you for your recent contact.


I can confirm that your name has now been removed from the Council Tax at the above address.


You are no longer liable for the outstanding charge.


Yours sincerely
