Hi everyone I am hoping someone can give me some advice please. I have a ccj with southern water for £1200 from last year I know I should have got this sorted before it escalated to this however as I was already paying a council tax debt that took priority and I honestly wanted to clear that which as of last week i finally have done. I struggled to pay my council tax bill at the rate they requested and with the added water bill payment on top it was impossible to keep up so i missed a few payments and I stupidily put this debt on the back burner .

However yesterday a HCEO called to say he was here to collect the debt which is now with charges added £2267 I did tell him that theres no way i have that kind of money and he said i would have to get it as he will be back to collect in full or remove my goods although i never let him in. I wondered if there is any way i could get southern water to take the debt back from him although they have said the debt is now with an outside agency and to deal with them. I am unable to pay the original £1200 bill in full never mind the added charges on top, I honestly don't know what to do next so any advice would be very gratefully received.

They will try to levy on any car near your house, though they should check you own it first. They have made mistakes, by taking cars not owned by the debtor. They may also look in your garden. Don't let them in the house and anything outside of value should be out of sight.


There are loads of threads on CAG. Have a read through them. But I would suggesr that you seek help from Citizens Advice or National Debtline asap. I don't know your financial position, but there may be help out there. I thought there was something you could apply for to help with water bills, but it may not be backdateable.









We could do with some help from you.
