A bailiff (Jacob's) came earlier while I was out and left a letter stating they intend to seize goods tomorrow re: a Liability Order issued by the Magistrates Court due to Council Tax arrears.

 

What can I do to stop them accessing my home? I am in receipt of £50 a week Working Tax Credits and have no other income at present (registered S/E). If I had money to pay my arrears, I would, but I don't. I'm not even going to get started on the fact a single person should have a greater reduction than at present, or that Council Tax even exists...

 

Thanks in advance.

A bailiff collecting council tax has no right of entry nor can they force entry

Keep all doors and windows secure at all times

 

If you have a car move it off the drive so they can not levy on it

 

NEVER sigh any paperwork from a bailiff

 

I would suggest you may fall into the vulnerable category with low income Bailiff action should be stopped

 

Normally if you ring the council they will tell you it is in the hands of the bailiffs and to deal with them are the council aware of your situation with income ect???

 

The use of bailiffs is the first step for the council to collect ct if they are unable to do so it will get handed back to the council given time with the normal fees added on

 

Do not let them in your home if need be talk through letterbox or upstairs window if need be ignore door they cannot get a locksmith or any other threats they come out with

 

If you feel threatened in anyway when they addend call the police


If i have helped in any way hit my star.

Thank you :)

 

So, I should just ignore the bell and contact the city council? I'm worried the neighbour downstairs will let them in the main door if they ring his bell, too. Will the police force me to open the door because it's Council Tax? I have no car, thankfully.

Provide proof of your income to both Council & Bailiffs and ask that consideration be given to the Council taking the account back as you believe you are considered vulnerable according to the National Standards for Enforcement Agents.

 

Do you have a separate lockable door to your home? If so then it doesn't matter what your neighbour does. He won't turn up with the Police or a locksmith, he is full of threats & bullsh1t. There is no law that says you have to deal with or speak to a Bailiff and providing you deny him access to your home there is little he can do except hand back your account to the Council. Have a good read of some other threads on here.

If they get in the main door that would not count as peaceful entry as they would have to get past your front door to your flat/ unit.

 

The police cannot force you to open your door to a bailiff

 

I would say contact the council and explain your situation and they should call off bailiff action

 

You will be breaking NO LAW if you refuse to deal with the bailiffs

 

If the council refuse to take debt back hang in there with time bailiffs will give up and hand it back and hound some other poor sole.

 

No harm in ignoring bell at all

 

COUNCIL TAX BAILIFFS BULLY BOYS HAVE NO POWER TO FORCE ENTRY

 

Do not phone bailiffs deal with council which may have to be by letter e mail see how you get on when you phone them,but i expect they will say in the hands of the bailiffs and to contact them

 

The chance is they will not re attend tomorrow but they will at some point

 

keep door locked and secure

Thanks, guys. Yes, I'll write a letter and email it so I have proof. When I've had to contact them in the past for various things, it's hell trying to get to speak to the right person. I'm off to get bread now and staying undercover tomorrow lol x
