#1 Attachment to benefits

Post by TGK » 27 Dec 2017 10:28

I am long term unemployed, I have an attachment to JSA for last year's Council tax. The Council are now threatening me with a bailiff visit for this year's CT. Anybody any ideas as to how I deal with this? And no, paying it is out of the question.

Have you not applied for CTR then? Secondly if the AoBs is in place they shouldn't be using an EA..

You can ask the council withdrawing bailiffs because it may be in breach of regulations and guidelines because you are unemployed.

Silly question perhaps but, if you are on JSA, are you not also on council tax support?

The OP probably is, but with some councils still forcing the unemployed to pay up to 25% of the bill, the endless spiral of debt makes paying it impossible.

CTR could easily mean the unemployed still being charged £6 per week. An AOB will pay a debt at about £3.50 a week, so the debt will never be paid. It's a ridiculous system.
