Council tax arrears are a complex business, and can lead to many unfortunate consequences including that unwanted visit for the bailiffs. It’s something everyone with any kind of financial issues dreads and, should council tax debt lead to that worst case scenario, it can be one of the most stressful situations anyone can go through. But who is it that is most likely to suffer from council tax arrears and everything that comes with it? Can that ominous knock on the door be avoided?
Unfortunately, those most at risk are invariably those who don’t have much in the first place, and this is why bailiffs have become such a major problem for so many households. Thousands of UK residents have fallen into debt because of the bedroom tax introduced in April, and this has led to a sharp rise in families struggling to pay council tax and losing control of their payments. This then results in often traumatic encounters with bailiffs and the issues are rarely ever sorted out fully before they reach crisis point.
The additional pressures on families in troubled economic times means that almost everyone is struggling, but it’s when these issues get to the point where debt is stacking up and you’re living in fear of bailiffs visiting that you need to seek help. Not doing so quickly will only drag the problem out for longer and, by the time you are able to resolve the various issues, you may have been living in fear for years. The stress of falling into council tax arrears can tear families apart, and that’s without the additional strain of bailiff visits.
