Hi All, my partner recently received a demand from the Sheriff Officers for Council tax, spread over 1998/99, for an address she formerly lived at.


The house in question was a privately rented house, but she did not live there until the end of 1999, which is after the period in question. The council say the home owners have told the council my partner was living there at the time, which is incorrect.


To cut short a long story, the council are saying she has to prove where she lived during that time, if she cant do that then they will press for an attachment of earnings. Problem is, she was only 20 in 1998 and was living with her parents, which the council say they have no record of that either.





We did apply to buy our council house together 5 years ago, which ultimately we did not go through with as we felt the councils value of the house was way overpriced. But part of that process was checking of Council Tax history, which came back all clear.
