Could one argue that the true cost of applying for a liabilty order (three pounds I hear ) and what most councils try and charge the individual is really not on and if so what legal defence could one use ?

The Council will use the argument of administration, paper, envelopes. postage, staff costs etc.










I'm sure they will and I will request an individual breakdown of how they arrived at there figures in my case. How far am I likely to get. lol..

Having a problem over council tax arrears. I initially owed £136 (missed a payment last year) but have now reduced this to £50. I received a summons yesterday informing me that my LA will be issuing a LO and the debt has now increased to £120 - £50 debt plus £70 summons meaning the debt has increased by about 120%. Are they allowed to do this and is there any way of challenging the summons

Only courts can issue liability orders, however councils have been issuing them saying they were issued by the court.


Misrepresentation springs to mind..
