I am in Scotland, over 2 and a half years ago I moved house.


I'm pretty sure that I informed the council of the move at the time.


I have today received an arrestment of earnings for unpaid council tax for my old house completely out of the blue.


I have had nothing from them since before moving out, and if I had I would have contacted them to discuss the matter.


I genuinely have no idea where this has come from

and can't work out what dates it is for from the arrestment schedule.


I am planning to call them on Monday to find out where this has come from,

but wanted to ask if there is anything that can be done at this stage?


As far as I am concerned nothing should be due,

I have been paying council tax at the new place since moving in.


I have read numerous posts on this and understand that for this to have been issued

it must have gone through some kind of court process,

but I have not had anything regarding this either.


Any help is much appreciated!

Hi welcome to CAG,



Did you inform the council in writing of your move and make sure there was no outstanding balance due?



There is little imo that can be done until you have the full story on this.

Any Letters I Draft are N0T approved by CAG and no personal liability is accepted.
