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.

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, DCA;s -  would collapse overnight.

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs - that's why they will never tell you they are not bailiffs and have absolutely zero legal powers on any debt.

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
