yes its ok but also send a copy of the letter you are giving him to the council and bailiff firm (by recorded delivery) and don't put on the letter to paid on the 23rd as the bailiff /firm will expect it to reach their account by clear funds on the 23rd put you will pay £80 by the end of each calendar month that way when you make your payment on the 23rd it will clear by the end of each month

council tax is a joint debt which means you are both reasonable for the debt so the bailiff can legally levy the car if the debt is for when you both lived together

 

unless the car is on HP or its a mobility car

 

bailiffs work from 6am till 9 pm so its always advisable not to park a car outside your home or on the drive at anytime

as long as they don't get a levy on YOUR car you will be fine and fees will be caped at 1st visit fee £24.50 and 2nd visit fee £18 if they leave you a notice of seizure levying a neighbours car let us know and we will help you deal with it

urm..

 

i'd question paying the bailiff anything at all here.

 

pay the council via your internet banking portal.

 

the problem with paying the bailiff is that it gives him

cart blanche availiability to 'take' money for his 'fees'

that he thinks fit he can charge.

 

if he's never been to the house then theres no fees at all. for a ctax letter.

 

you have ofcourse checked there IS an active LO issued by the council?

hi yes there is a liability order and i have put on the letter that is the bailiff doesn't accept my offer i will pay direct to council, my only worry with paying it direct to council is that they take it off this years council tax and not what is left from last year.

thats an old resolved debt. ive gotten into a bit of a cycle with the council tax of paying bailiffs

and not having enough money to pay this years council tax and then having bailiffs again . but its getting better.

 

i was up to date with the council tax until xmas hit then i was off work for 2 months sick

and have been on a phased return to work.

 

im now back to my normal hours but unable to do all the overtime i used so the last few months have been a struggle.

ok well i'm just a bit concerned

 

you've had ctax debts going back to 2008 and if this

is being compounded by fees

 

as you've been told numerous times before

 

you need to deal with the council to save money

I really think you should enter into a discussion with the council regarding council tax issues that you face and the reasons for these. Perhaps there is a way that you can deal with the council directly, with a payment arrangement made to them. You can pay the bailiff the amount due for their visits separately.

 

If the council offices are local to you and you can speak to someone face to face, taking in a letter to explain your situation, you will find them more helpful, than someone annoymous on the end of a telephone.

We could do with some help from you.
