I have an issue with council tax that was paid but bailiffs

Customer Question

I have an issue with council tax that was paid but bailiffs are threatening removal for unspecified charges. I contacted council as the corrected bill was paid in time as requested but they will not speak to me regarding charges.

Hello and thank you for your question. I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 10 years experience.
Can you kindly advise why you did not pay council tax originally please?
I assume the council applied for a liability order against you in the magistrates court and subsequetly appointed bailiffs?
Did you allow the bailiffs into your home?
