I was made bankrupt for council tax and housing benefit over payment, I have since been discharged, now the council have asked the DwP to stop money from my benefit to pay for the over payment and council tax, can they do this as I thought the debt was cleared in bankruptcy

Thread moved to the appropriate forum.....re titled.

 

Debts that can be included

 

Like other forms of personal insolvency such as Debt Relief Orders and Individual Voluntary Arrangements, bankruptcy is principally designed to help you get free of unsecured debts. These include:

 

Credit cards

Store cards

Personal loans

payday loans

Catalogue debts

Bank overdrafts.

 

Some other forms of debt can also be included, such as:

 

Rent arrears (be careful with these as your landlord can still evict you)

Council tax arrears and current tax bills

Arrears from previous utility accounts and old secured debts

Tax-related debts such as self-assessed income tax, VAT and National Insurance

Fixed penalty charges like parking fines.

If the Council had a Liability Order for Council Tax before your Bankruptcy then this would be excluded from your Bankruptcy and sadly they can still chase for the amount owed.

 

I would advise if you have the contact details of the Official Receiver/Trustee that dealt with your Bankruptcy to contact them and ask if these were included in your Bankruptcy

Council tax arrears for which your local authority has obtained a council tax liability order before bankruptcy - your local authority has the right to use bailiffs to recover payment after a bankruptcy order is made. They can't make you pay in any other way, for example by taking money from your wages.

 

So it can be included but not extinguish any enforcement connected to that LO and only goods can be removed.
