We can pass your debt to accredited enforcement agents (previously known as bailiffs) who can come to your home and seize property to raise money towards paying your Council Tax debt and our recovery costs.
You can contact the enforcement agent and offer to come to a repayment agreement. Do this straight away because the enforcement agent fees (initially £75) will be added to your bill. If they have to visit you in person, you will incur a minimum of £235 in additional costs.
The enforcement agent fees are fixed by law under the The Taking Control of Goods (Fees) Regulations 2014.
