I’ve been advised not to pay the council tax debt as it forms part of the IVA proposal. However, the creditors meeting was delayed by a couple of weeks and in the meantime I got a court summons (due in court today) I’ve been advised not to pay and am being told that the IVA once approved will override the liability order. However I’m worried that a) the meeting may result in need for extra time or modifications and in the meantime bailiff action goes ahead, or worse still that even if the IVA is approved the bailiff action will go ahead (as I have read on here has happened with Bankruptcy).
The council have been good when I have called them but can’t seem to offer a guarantee that no further action will be taken. They have said that any further action after a liability order usually takes 3-4 weeks.
The crazy thing is I have the money to pay the council and could pay tomorrow, but the company I’m dealing with setting up the IVA are saying that this would endanger the IVA. The funds have been committed to the IVA proposal, although I’ve even said I could just get a friend to pay the council tax. That’s fine for them but they aren’t the ones with the prospect of bailiffs knocking on their door.
I am finding this very stressful and I’d like some advice if possible.
