You might not know it but council tax debts are one of the largest causes of financial problems in the United Kingdom. And whilst there is a large number of people rallying for a universal living wage the fact remains that right now financial difficulties are plaguing the country and if you do not heed the warnings that are issued to you, you will find yourself in more trouble than you started in.

If you have never had any experience dealing with repossession companies such as Excel Bailiffs, the very first contact you have with them can leave you shaken. With mountains of stress to deal with following falling into debt it can be hard to overcome the gloom that seems to be following you around – the last thing you need is Excel Bailiffs knocking on your door and asking you for money that you don’t have in your possession.


You are not on your own. Council Tax Advisors advises over 100 people a day in your situation. Call us or fill in our form & we’ll call you.

Bailiffs often come along at a time in your life when you need them the least – if you had money to spare, you wouldn’t be in that situation in the first place, right? All the same, bailiffs are just doing their jobs (and the few that are found to be overstepping their authority are dealt with severely) so when it comes to dealing with bailiffs we like to so in an amicable fashion.

Councils use companies like Excel Bailiff enforcement services in order to recover debts that have mounted. Their job isn’t a plesant one, but it is an unfortunate necessity – if councils did not collect their taxes they would be millions of pounds behind each year and local amenities would fall into a state of disrepair. Bailiffs only have certain rights whilst they are making a call at your property and you should be aware of them before you enter into any communication with them.

Bailiffs should inform you of their visit in advance this should ideally come a week prior to their visit but depending on the area you live in sometimes the periods of notice can be slightly shorter. If you’ve received a warning suggesting that you are going to be visited by Excel Bailiffs, please don’t hesitate to contact us as we’d like to help you negotiate with the council regarding your debt immediately.

Interactions with bailiffs can quickly complicate matters and tensions can escalate if the situation isn’t approached in the right way. Here at Council Tax Advisors we are experts in dealing with councils and with bailiffs – we spend a lot of our time mediating between debtors and councils to arrive at a mutually beneficial agreement.
