I've been contacted by an enforcement agent
If you have not paid your council tax a court can grant a council tax liability order. If the court makes the order, it means the council can use debt enforcement measures.
One of the measures we can take is to pass your account to an enforcement agent (bailiff). We use Rundles as an enforcement agent.
You will receive a letter from the enforcement agent to let you know the debt has to be collected by them. If Rundles contact you about your council tax debt, you should contact them as soon as possible. Do not ignore letters or contact from an enforcement agent. Action can prevent further fees being added to your outstanding debt.
Once an enforcement agent handles your debt, you must make payments to them. The payments, minus a fee, will be passed to us.
Rundles' fees are set in law and are added to your debt:
- £75 will be added to your debt when the initial notice of enforcement letter is sent
- £235 plus 7.5% of the debt's value over £1,500 will be added if the enforcement agent makes a visit to your property
- further costs can be added if the enforcement agents remove your goods
