CTACIC Reports 20% Increase in Demand for Help from Clients Visited by Bristow and Sutor Bailiffs
Each year, hundreds of thousands of Brits fail to keep up with their council tax payments. The results are not always pretty – with bailiff enforcement being taken against those racking up the most debt.
In 2012, Chris Richards endured unlawful action from bailiffs after ill health prevented him from making his council tax payments. This harrowing experience resulted in one enforcement officer losing his certificate and another mysteriously retiring – inspiring Richards to launch Council Tax Advisors for those stood in his shoes.
Three years later, CTACIC is now a non-profit organization, helping thousands of clients manage their council tax arrears through free services such as local authority payment plan negotiation, dispute resolution with creditors and their most popular service – direct negotiation with bailiff enforcement agencies.
One of the nation’s biggest such agencies is Bristow and Sutor, who provide nationwide debt recovery on behalf of dozens of local councils. While their public brief is somewhat ominous, Bristow and Sutor visit thousands of British homes every year to recover goods to the value of tax arrears. And the problem is getting worse – with the team at CTACIC reporting a 20% increase this year alone in requests for help with those now on the Bristow and Sutor radar.
“It’s surprisingly easy to see bailiffs land on your doorstep,” explains Richards. “When the council grants a liability order against an individual, the case is passed to bailiffs for enforcement and the homeowner or tenant loses many of their rights. Under certain circumstances, bailiffs can enter your home, recover items to the value of your arrears and then sell/auction them to raise the funds. Items are typically valued very low, and it’s not rare to see a living room emptied in a matter of minutes.”
Continuing, “We deal with all Bailiff Enforcement agents throughout the country. However, we have noted a particular rise in clients asking for our help after having been visited by Bristow Sutor. This increase may be due to the increasing demand on Councils to recover monies owed and we are happy to report we have had particular success in our mediation with Bristow Sutor on behalf of our clients.”
Those in arrears are urged to contact CTACIC today. Their services are 100% free and delivered at the point of need.
