hi all

 

i nee a little advice please,

 

my wife had a council tax outstanding council tax debt from her old address, [which was paid directly in full to the council instead of the Bailiffs]

now out of the blue she has had a hand delivered letter saying she owes £309.85 to Jacobs

 

i have been on the council website as we registered her an account and have checked the last 2 years and it says £120 and underneath it it says Bailiffs,

so my question is is this is bailiff charges and the debt has been paid direct to the councill do i have to pay the amount £309.85 to Jacobs or are they just trying it on ?

 

any advice will bbe gratefully recieved

You should have received the notice of enforcement, giving 7 days notice before an enforcement visit. 

 

So ask Jacobs what the £309.85 is for and when the notice of enforcement was posted to you, what address it was sent to. 

 

Once a council has passed it to an Enforcement company, you are responsible for a compliance fee, which was about £75. The Enforcement company then issue the notice of enforcement and if you don't respond with 7 days, then can       then charge an enforcement visit fee which was £235.

 

Paying the council directly, after the Enforecement company have taken over, would not stop the fees being due to them.


We could do with some help from you.

No right of forced entry on ctax

 

Dont forget the £235 can only be charged if they latterly attend.

After the 7 days

The council should autopay fees due at that time.

so unless you paid bill+£75 to the council 

you didnt pay the full owing so do owe the £235 +the £75=£310

You prob over paid ctax bill by 15 p i bet hence £309.85 owing

They can target goods outside of your home, that they think you own. 

 

Best for you to come to an arrangement by calling their office.

There is a backlash now about this kind of behaviour with councils, using Bailiffs, not helping people at all, being punitive. Ring and email the local councillor from the area and explain the situation.  

 

There's a 50/50 chance he /she will sort this for you and wipe the fees, and it will only take you a few minutes to do this.

You mention that the debt related to a previous property. In that case, what happened to prompt you to make payment to the council? For example, had your wife received notification from the tenant at the previous property that a bailiff had visited etc...….or had your wife received a letter at your current address from Jacobs? 

 

If your wife had received a letter, what amount was stated on the letter?

The council website will only show their fees and not any from the enforcement agents.
