Council Tax Advisors Ltd.(CTA) offers a specialist advisory service for all those in arrears with, or simply cannot afford to pay, their Council Tax. We deal predominately with cases that involve the use of Bailiffs and/or work with those individuals/households classified as vulnerable. CTA ensures that people in arrears with Council Tax, whether domestic or non-domestic, are treated fairly and that the Council Authorities, and Bailiffs they employ, abide by procedures to which they must adhere. In particular when it becomes apparent to CTA that an individual is being pursued by a Bailiff in relation to Council Tax Arrears, we will ensure that whenever possible (most cases) the debt is brought back in-house to the Council. This provides instant relief to the client/debtor. We do it to ensure primarily, that vulnerable people/households are treated fairly and with respect at all times by their Local Council Authority. We ensure that the Bailiffs follow their correct code of practice. Where it is found that either the Council, or its Bailiffs, are not following the correct procedures, we will intervene. All of our initial advice is free. However CTA does not receive any external funding, government or otherwise, and this is why we charge a one off fee of ?145.00 in cases where you ask us to act on your behalf. Sometimes, in exceptional circumstances, we are able to offer a payment plan, in an effort to make our service as accessible as possible.
