when my marriage ended, we were living together and the Council Tax was, at the time in joint names.

 

When I moved out in March 2007, I rang the Council and told them of this,

but did not give them a forwarding address, as I was unsure where I would end up

 

- Fast forward to about 12 months ago,

 

I got a letter from the Council for the previous area, regarding outstanding Council Tax

at the old address (ex has now moved also, no idea where)

 

I rang the Council and told them I was not liable, having moved out in March 2007,

 

I then heard no more -

 

Until yesterday, when a letter stating it was a "formal demand" for an outstanding amount of £1200

in relation to the previous address.

 

I rang the Council to enquire, and was told it was for the year AFTER I had moved out!

 

I have never acknowledged this debt, and am not liable for it

 

- My question therefore is, does the six year limitation apply, if so then I can just ignore, or failing that, what else can I do?

if they have not issued a liability order in the 6yrs since in was due

it could well be SB'd

 

however.

 

all you need to do is provide PROOF that you were resident at a diff address from that period

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...

A summons must be issued within 6 years of the amount becoming due - it only becomes due when the demand notice is issued so this may have been more recent than 2008 - 2008 through would still be within the 6 years.

 

Whether you have 'acknowledged' the amount or not doesn't matter.

 

The council have information that you are liable - you need to provide them with the evidence to show that you weren't liable.

  • 1 year later...

Ok, so still wrangling with the council on this,

 

 

they have now, almost 2 years later, sent it to Rossendales..

 

 

it's on hold and I've yet again sent them solicitor certified copies of the original tenancy agreement

which clearly states that tenants were responsible for council tax..

 

 

. Notwithstanding this, I've been reading a couple of similar threads on here, namely THIS ONE and THIS ALSO with interest,

 

 

now I've noticed member tomtubby has mentioned in both of them, a "VTE Case" which apparently makes short work of these things.

 

 

I've pm'd said member, but noticed he/she has not been online since Feb, so was wondering if anyone could shed a little light on this?

 

Thanks
