Not only has council tax debt become Britain’s biggest personal debt problem – eclipsing credit card default in 2014 – but it is also a cause of homelessness, with the danger not confined only to those in rented accommodation. It is also striking homeowners as cash-strapped councils implement ever harsher recovery tactics.

A pleb struggling to keep head above water is a pleb too busy to question why.

Old tricks and ruses by whomsoever happens to be heading an oppressive power.

It would be so much better (IMO) if councils let people know they can appeal a Liability Order (as you can any other court case) ... instead they just send out the letter saying it's going to happen and take 100+ bits of paper in to a room to be rubber-stamped

If more people actually turned up to LO 'hearings' then councils' would be less likely to attempt them Wink
