Hi all,

 

Today I received 2 'Second Notice of Liability -Council Tax' letters

They are both dated today with the following detail:

Letter 1 says I owe £67.63 + £100 awarded by the court

Letter 2 says I owe £84.00 + £100 awarded by the court.

 

Thing is, I can prove that I moved out of the address last April, and

I have never been notified of any charges that were outstanding, after I paid the last council tax last year. I was assured it was up to date!

 

Not sure what to do now. I can pay this bill in full, but I don't believe it's down to me.

On such a full sea are we now afloat, and we must take the current when it serves,

Or lose our ventures.

i would like to state ( even though late) my problem was solved by writing a handwritten letter and explaining the situation to the council. they did not contact me afterwards or anything, but i "assume" since there was no contact that the matter was solved! hopefully they wont bring it back later.

 

my advice for you Hamad is to gather your evidence of your last payments ( latest reciept bill etc) or if you paid by card then a statement showing it or something. aslong as you have proof just send it to them and say i moved out and confirmed by phonecall that my last payment was finished.

good luck!

 

also if you make your own topic i think you will get more helpful replies, most people wont bother with this anymore because it already has quite a few replies i guess :)

Hi, and sorry to overlap. I’ll get the old statements if I can.

I know I paid them though.

 

I’d better start a new thread!!!

Hi all,

 

I moved out of my old flat and in with my fiancee last Easter, moving to a new area entirely.

It appears that it slipped my mind to tell the old council that I had moved.

 

I have had 2 letters from my old council as follows:

'Second Notice of Liability -Council Tax' letters

They are both dated 02 Sept with the following detail:

Letter 1 says I owe £67.63 + £100 awarded by the court

Letter 2 says I owe £84.00 + £100 awarded by the court.

 

Thing is, I can prove that I moved out of the address last April, and I have never been notified of any charges that were outstanding, after I paid the last council tax last year. I was assured it was up to date!

 

I wrote back to them challenging them to provide me with a full breakdown of the charges.

 

I have received a letter yesterday, with a breakdown of the charges, which states that as they did not have a forwarding address, all the correct notices were sent out to my old address, and as such the court charges stand, and I'm now liable for £300.90!

 

Thing is, they did not let me know the matter was going to court, and presented me with fait-a-complis court costs for services that I could not possibly have incurred. however, they were able to find me for the 'Second notice of liability.

 

If they insist that I do pay do pay the council tax for the time that I was not in the flat, am I not contributing to a fraud? ie complicit in being charged for something I have not received.

 

I am writing back to them pointing out:

A. That they pursued me in court for a debt which I could not have incurred.

B. Did not present the full details to the court, ( I moved out on 7 April, therefore I think I'm only liable for 7 days council tax, Feb & March being none payment months if I'm right).

C. They did not perform due diligence to resolve this matter, yet could find an a\ddress for me when they chose to.

 

I can pay this bill in full, but I don't believe it's down to me.

Just a thought, but I’m assuming that this means I have a ccj against my name.

As it was a pure oversight on my part, and it’ll be paid off immediately, is there any chance that I can have the ccj, if it exists, set aside?
