CTAX Enforcement from Jacobs - Advice needed.


Recommended Posts

Trying to sort this for my Dad - who is sick with worry.

 

He had sold a property last Year - and forgot to pay outstanding council tax ( it was a rented property )

 

Letter from jacobs had gone too his old address - so letters were missed.  My Dad hadnt thought about advisisng council of his up-todate living address , as the renter / occuper was paying.

 

So - he has just had A FURTHER NOTICE OF ENFORCEMNT from Jacobs.

 

he has checked with council and they have added a couple hundred on top.

 

Dad is happy to pay the CTAX bill outright, but not the charges.

 

Done a wee bit of reading today and it seems , that maybe he should start paying online direct to the council, and inform them that this has been done. ??

 

Then maybe send letters to Jacobs and the council and ask Jacobs too send the debt back to the council ?  would this work >?

 

Dad let things slip due to ill-health and it just skipped his mind.

 

So he has only one letter in his possession from Jacobs ( incidentally to his correct address ) - all others sent to his old address and binned.

 

Thanks so much.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

which gave 7 days @£75 before a further visit which will be £235 = total fees of £310. which is all a bailiff can ever charge.

 

i would be paying the bailiff company and quickly 

if you pay the council directly you would still owe the £75 regardless.

they might accept it they might not, but the bailiffs will .

 

to be clear, he has not had visit following the NOE so bailiff can only charge £75+LO sums
