You need to get some assistance sorting the council tax liability etc sorted as it needs to be taken out of your name. The payment for now will stop the imminent action and the rest is a little way off yet before it becomes a problem (assuming it's next year's bill).

To be paid by 1 April or on 1 April?  Is it next year's bill?

They told me it had all been lumped into together, so I thought whatever they had sent me included the upcoming year, since they only just sent the paperwork out. They've given me 25% off and that's it. I can't pay and they take forever to sort anything out, so I can't imagine it'll be resolved by the end of the month.

They want it by 1st April this year, so if I don't pay will they not take action straight away?

It can't be next year's council tax charge as they have to spread it by instalments, starting on 1 April. You need to know what the amount is for.

They've asked for £280 by end of March for last year's bill and then another £160 by 1st April, which is the first installment for the forthcoming year.


Sorry if I seem like I'm not really with it. I was in a&e til 3am this morning, so a bit sleep deprived.

Ah Ok, as it's next year's charge the first payment is due on 1 April - you can pay it earlier but it's not due until that day. Next year isn't an issue for now as it's at least 14 days away before it starts getting at the point where it may start to cause issues.

The arrears will continue to cause issues until their either paid or the liability issue is sorted out properly.

    • Sangie5952   Thanks for such a prompt and informative response.  I have checked my 'Statement of Particulars of Employment' and there is no reference to bonus/thank you awards so it appears that an unauthorised deduction doesn't apply.   If I am not amending my ET1 can you see any reason why I cannot include this in my witness statement?  My concern would be that I had not given the respondent's solicitor sufficient notice of this new fact. 
    • Hi dx no it wasn't 😕 the 1st ended Jan 03 and the second started June 2004, I'm so very useless I just can't work anything outx
    • PPIPCM= 1174/6174*100=19%   so anything you paid and when 19% was PPI on that payment date was this 1st loan paid off by another?  
    • Hi pinkab.   Have you read the PPC successes subforum? There are loads of threads where people won in court and before court.   HB
    • Setting aside an email from a manager which is not contractually binding on the employer, do you have anything available to you that makes nominating you for an award a contractual term?  Is there anything that says that you are contractually entitled to a financial payment- because there can't be an unauthorised deduction of something you aren't entitled to.    You do not need to amend the ET1, if all you are saying is that this is another piece of evidence in respect of the claim you have already submitted. You  amend to add claims. The ET1 is a summary of claim, not the absolute detail. So I can see no reason why you need to amend. That does not, of course, mean that it is evidence of anything either.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here
