Today out of the blue we got a visit from Newlyns,

we were not home so they posted a letter saying we owe £440 for unpaid council tax.

 

 

I have no idea how we got this debt

we have had no prior letters from the council or from Newlyns.

 

 

He has visited my home and posted this letter saying he has come to collect goods and if i fail to contact him he will be back in 48hrs.

 

I would like to contact the council and find out where and why this came about but my main worry is this bailiff and his threats.

 

Me nor my partner are currently working and i claim job seekers and they have me sanctioned,

 

 

we live with our 3 children and would like some advice on how to deal with this bailiff,

will he be back to enter my property? :|

firstly.

its a CTAX debt he has no right of entry at all.

 

 

you don't have to converse with him whatsoever.

 

 

what is the letter you have?

is it titled notice of enforcement?

its a bit too late today.

but do you knowwhich council?

 

 

if you do

go do this 1st thing in the morning

 

 

You need to speak to someone at the Council and ask the following questions:

1 - how many Liability Orders they have against you

2 - the dates they were obtained

3 - the addresses they were for

4 - the period of time each covers

5 - how much each one was for

6 - how much is still outstanding

7 - the dates they were passed on for enforcement

And make sure you claim Council Tax relief, on the ground of Zero income, as you are still entitled to Housing benefit if a tenant, and Council Tax Relief, even when sanctioned.

 

How long have you been on a sanction and did you tell the council?

As stated your entitlement to CTax relief remains, and it could be that the council might backdate and cut some of your bill. Contact your local councillor for help also.

We could do with some help from you.

This is the letter he posted today saying Final warning, As far as iam aware this is my first warning or any knowledge of this debt. Can i not just deal with the council, do i have to deal with Newlyn?

If they have ceased your claim due to sanction you must get the council to re-instate it on Zero income grounds, to prevent more arrears.

We could do with some help from you.

I will be on the phone to them first thing in the morning, does this company have any rights to access my home to take goods or can i just ignore him and deal with the council?

 

They have NO rights. Just keep the door locked, keep any vehicles a good 10 mins walk away and dont even answer the door to them

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Once an account is with an enforcement agency, it is extremely difficult to get the council to accept that payments can be made to them. The reason for this is because the regulations specifically state that from any payments made, the enforcement companies compliance fee of £75 must be deducted first and any payments over this sum must be divided with approx 60% going towards the debt to the council and the remaining 40% towards the remainder of bailiff fees.

 

As the debt is for council tax arrears, there is no right to force entry and the bailiff would need to gain permission from you to come into your home...and are perfectly within your rights to refuse entry.

 

The letter from the bailiff is very misleading as it gives the 'impression' that the bailiff will take goods from your even in your absence. What this really means is that if you have goods OUTSIDE of the property they can be taken. Almost always, this will refer to a motor vehicle.

 

Please make sure that you call the council in the morning. Please post back to let us know what they have to say.
