    • Yes, my initial view is that @unclebulgaria67 is probably right and that because it was a magistrate's warrant, it would be the energy company that would have been in control of the situation directly. Unfortunately this will be much more difficult to deal with then dealing directly with Marston but anyway if you give us your details as requested, we can at least get Outlook from that direction as well. I'm also wondering about the position of your landlord in this. As you have taken up a tenancy in a particular property then I would have thought that one of the terms of the tenancy would be that you should be entitled to quiet enjoyment. Although the landlord may say that it is not their fault and it is down to the previous tenant, at the end of the day you have a contract with the landlord who has certain responsibilities. I think we may consider involving the landlord in this as well. You say that there have been letters addressed to the previous tenant. What have you done with those?
    • Yes please. We have certain direct access to Marston and we may be able to get someone to look at this at a senior level. Please email us as requested with your own contact details and name of previous tenant.   We can't guarantee any particular result but we can promise you that it will be looked at.

    • thank you.   have you had issues paying credit before you took any of these out?   i'e were you keeping a good handle upon your credit file and it wasn't shot with any defaults or payment markers during the period when you applied and were successful in getting any of this additional credit?   my thoughts are ...should the above not be the case and your credit worthiness was good... so couldn't p'haps introduce some irresponsible lending complaints in association to them … it might be an idea to give all your creditors the heads up that times are hard and you wish them to help you, as they are duty bound to do, by freezing interest and any penalty fees to allow you to ride out this present financial hardship till things improve ...   how does that sound...   dx

I had an outstanding council tax debt of £79.20 for last years council tax 2017.

 

Today out the blue I got a visit from 2 sheriff officers and now my council tax has doubled to £158.30. They have doubled my debt! I am on ESA.

 

How the hell is this legal, The council tax year only started in April. This seems completely out of order and so hurried for such a small debt, They never even gave me a chance to pay, Now they are saying the fees can't be removed cause they sent officers out.

 

This has enraged me, What can i do? Thanks

Ah right I see. This is completely out of order what they have done.

 

Really not happy. Thanks for putting me in the right forum.

Do you know if the outstanding was added to this years total? If not then it does sound as if they obtained a Liability Order, or whatever the Scottish equivalent is called, against you. Have you had any notifications about proposed proceedings from either Council or Sheriffs Officers?

No my current year is being billed as 18/19.

 

The debt they are enforcing is 17-18 and it says the council went and got a summary warrant at the court on the 24th april, Stirling park sent me a letter and it's dated 2nd of may. It's only the 22nd of May.... How the hell can they just justify sending out sheriff officers and adding a cost of £79.10.

 

Things have been extremely difficult right now, And for by all that I am to go for an ESA assessment and had to get all my documents in order.

 

I dont know.

Thanks for your honest replies but I will leave you with those that have better knowledge of Scottish Law who can help. Hopefully it shouldn't be too long and you will get a resolution to all this.

Ok, So here is an update.

 

I spoke to Stirling park via phone,

Spoke to a guy who understood my issues,

 

Went to speak to his "manager" or someone higher.

Came back and said the £79.10 sheriff fees have been removed and account on hold.

Because they council have directly went to DWP and asked for a reduction.

 

I suffer from severe mental health issues.

This has completely put me of course for today.

 

Why have they done this and allowed this to happen in the way it did,

I understand It's my debt etc and needs to be paid.

 

But why send officers out when they are going to take money from my benefits regardless?

 

Thanks
