#1 Enforcement fee

Post by janisb » 30 Dec 2017 00:26

I got an sms (and a call, but wasn't able to answer) from Rundles that they're coming to collect debt (I hadn't set up paying council tax) tomorrow (Saturday, 30th Dec), I've already paid the council tax + the compliance fee through their website. Do I still have to pay the enforcement fee, too? It seems a bit unclear, if I have to pay it after the 7 days or when they actually try to visit (no idea when that is, since I'm on holiday and haven't seen the notice). I wasn't able to call them back, since it was too late when I saw the text. Also I think my landlord rented out part of my flat on AirBnB during Christmas, so I'm worried there might be someone who lets them in, should I just pay the fee or are they not allowed to visit if I've paid everything else?

It's bit unclear here - http://www.dealingwithbailiffs.co.uk/ba ... l-fees.htm

Also who the hell sends a notice during Christmas and a visit right before New Year's...

Ok, just checked and there's no one in the flat atm, so they shouldn't be able to get in.

If you've paid the debt and the compliance stage fee then no, they should not be making a visit. Some bailiffs like to pretend they can charge the next fee if the debt isn't cleared by the date they've stated - this is incorrect. They can only charge the fee once a visit is made. Contact them to update them.
