Hi not sure if this is the correct forum. Also the details I have just now a fairly limited. Sorry.

 

My self and my partner have received an 'appointment letter' from walker love, stating they have a legal document they need to serve. I am not sure what this is to do with (possibly council tax).

 

It has a code at the bottom mentioning 'sequistration'.

 

A couple of questions:

 

1) does this mean some one has applied for sequestration?

 

2) If and when they turn up do we have to speak to them and / or allow them entry?

 

3) will we be getting 'charged' and attendance fee everytime they write to us or turn up at the door?

 

Any advice greatly appreciated, this is freaking me out.

 

thanks

Thanks I know it is difficult to answer with so few details.. I think it is either council tax or even the factors for our building (walker Sandford). We did have an issue with the council tax years ago, but bevel it was sorted out.

 

Do we have to give WL access to our flat?

No,

 

If sheriff officers turn up at your door - don't let them in. They have NO legal right to force entry into your home without a court hearing granting an "Exceptional Attachment Order" - you would have known of the court hearing, as you can contest the application.

thanks maroon (pretty helpful for a jambo!!!)

 

Just heard, they apparently turned up today (i am at work and my OH was out) and put another letter through the door saying they will try again in a couple of days. Will they be adding charges everytime they turn up? is it better to arrange to go to the office and collect it?

 

Sorry for all the questions, just had no sleep for a couple of days over this.

Hi,

 

There will be a charge for serving the documents, don't think they can charge for every visit.

Depending on what they are trying to deliver, if you do nothing the court will give judgement against you.

 

I'm not too good with debts due to factors ect.

 

They are not as scary as you might think, I've had them at my door a few times.

Also spent a lot of time in their offices over the years, including attempted sequistration for council tax arrears.

 

I'd be trying to find out what they are trying to deliver.

Hi All

Sorry for the delay in updating.

 

we have now received paperwork. It relates to multiple council tax payment for my partner (each year between 2003 - and now). amounting to just under 11,000. They have now applied for sequestration. We have a date of 3rd november for seq hearing. Any advice? Can we get the seq stopped? can they take the house (we have very little other assests)? is it better to try and arrange a repayment plan now? I am going to try and contact a lawyer later today.

 

We did have similar issues years ago and agreed a repayment plan via sheriff court which we adhered to until the outstanding was paid. will this affect any future agreements / will the court look unfavourably about this.

 

REALLY REALLY stressed about this, and yes we are aware it is our fault for not paying it so please try not to judge us to harshly. thanks.

Hi,

 

Did you get in touch with a lawyer.

I managed to stop my sequestration by getting the sheriff officers to accept a payment plan, I was paying £200 per month on Council Tax arrears of £6,000.

 

You could have a look at a DAS.............
