  • Fraudulent Liability Order

    Hi All - in summary very upset and here is why....

    1) Received summons for council tax arrears from Birmingham city council.
    2) Attended summons at Birmingham magistrates. Was present in court and made my case. There were no arrears.
    3) Council withdraw application for liability order and fees in court - no liability order granted.
    4) Today received letter from Birmingham city council that they obtained a liability order.

    I am totally baffled and angry. How have the council obtained this order? What steps can I take next?

    Re: Fraudulent Liability Order

    Have you spoken with the council since receiving the letter from Birmingham City Council ?

    It may be that they just sent out letter to everyone as they are too used to people not realising they can defend their case. I'd give them a ring before doing anything else.

      Apologies should have included a point 5 that I called and they confirmed a liability order was granted.

        Urrghhhh in that case give the court you attended a call, something has gone awry somewhere hasn't it.

        How long ago was the hearing ?

          When you say you went to court, was it actually heard by a Magistrate, or was it just the 'kangaroo court' in the waiting area, presided over by council staff.

            What was the reason for the council withdrawing the application (for a Liability Order)?

              Answers to questions from above posts:

              1) It was heard in front of magistrates and not the kangaroo court you mention. At the kangaroo court they made every effort to convince me not to be present in front of magistrate
              2) Liability was withdrawn by council because i had proven that I owed them no monies

              UPDATE
              Sent a letter to head of revenue etc requesting following:

              1) Send Liability Order as issued by Magistrates
              2) Quash the liability order
              3) Offer appropriate financial compensation

              RESULT
              1) No liability order forwarded by council
              2) Liability order confirmed quashed and checked directly
              3) reasonable compensation received
