We have been issued with a Charge for Payment by AA Hutton Sherriff officers for unpaid Council Tax of £392. I arranged a payment plan with this company last year but defaulted due to losing job and not telling them.

 

We were issued with this on Wednesday. We have 14 days to pay or they can arrest our wages/freeze our bank account etc.

 

I have read that we can apply to the courts for a Time to Pay order. My partner is going to call Citzens Advice today to see where we get the forms etc from. Unfortunetly our Citzens Advice office is only open from 10-4 and I work 8-4 and my partner works 9-5. Hopefully Citzens Advice will be able to help and assist over the phone.

 

My question, do you think the Court is likely to grant us a Time to Pay order or as I have already defaulted on one payment plan we will be asked to raise the funds in 14 days?

 

Thanks for any help.

use the search engine in the blue bar at the top of page put in sheriff officers

IdaInFife wages arrested (things like that ) and a you should find some threads that could help you

 

I'm 99% sure there has to over a certain amount of money in the back before they can take it £300 comes to mind but that figure could be wrong

if you still want more options & overview

recommended is national debtline website

 

plenty of factsheets download as pdf

including all the formalities of sheriff officers & attachment

 

Wasn't it widely reported quite recently that seizure for auction re council tax was banned in scotland?

[like private vehicle clampers]

national debtline, if you ring 'em or email, will have ALL the relevants

Hi

 

If you are not working they can't arrest your wages. If you are they have to discount the first £415 and can take 19% of the rest- depending on how much more than that you earn. They can arrest a bank account but the protected min balance is £415.

 

An attachment order levies on goods outside your home. A car has to be valued at £3000 or more before it should be attached.
