I moved to abroad in 2003 leaving behind a council tax debt of £300.Needless to say the council cought up with me 6 mths later.They sent me one standard letter and nothing since. Last week I got a letter from the baliffs who bought this debt and are demanding payment saying it was a liability order.Should I PAY UP or not.:|

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

if they've obtained a Liability Order here in the UK which is likely they can in fact apply to a court where you are to enforce it. There are cross-border agreements in place within the EU unfortunately

sb'ed - is statute barred, Council Tax debts are never Statute Barred if the Council obtained the Liability order within 6 years of it being due.

 

The Council obtains the Liability order not the Bailiffs. The Council pass it to the Bailiff to enforce the debt. If it is only £300 as you say it easier to just pay. The Bailiff may argue that there are fees to pay but as they have not visited there is nothing.

I have had a similar (but different council tax problem - basically TWO separate councils just inventing figures & demanding payment of completely imaginary council tax. I haven't yet sorted it out & one council is threatening to make me bankrupt- although they would be laughed out of court as long as I presented my case properly.

 

I have had long experience now of councils acting with a COMPLETE disregard of law & general reality and am currently dealing with a MAJOR issue concerning something like this - even more major than my councils tax thing where in my case the claims from both councils are about £15 000 & complete works of fiction as I was not liable for ANY council tax because I was a single parent in receipt of state benefits !

Your confusing yourself over Council Tax liability- liability has nothing to do with whether you have any monies to pay or not. Liability is based on who would be the person who would have to pay any Council Tax due (or which would be due except for discounts/exemptions etc)

 

The fact your in receipt of state benefits does not remove any council tax liability or council tax charge. You would have to claim council tax benefit and have it paid, being entitled and not claiming it does not mean that the council tax is not due.
