Liability order

If you have defaulted on the payment arrangement on the summons, you will now be subject to further recovery action. This can be:

  • An instruction to your employer to make deductions from your salary or wages.
  • A request to the Department for Work and Pensions to make deductions from your benefits.
  • The debt will be passed to Enforcement Agents and incur an additional cost of £75, and £235 will be added for each liability order if they need to visit.
  • A request to the county court to place a charge on your property (if you own it) and interest can be applied on balance owed.
  • Apply to the county court for a bankruptcy order, and a further cost of at least £1270 will be incurred.

The final stage is a warrant of arrest being issued and exercising our right to bring you in for a committal hearing.

This will incur further costs of £135 per warrant and £305 for all associated summonses. It is a very serious possibility you can be sent to prison for non-payment of Council Tax.
