“If you've received a similar document to this, it's highly likely your council's bailiff contractor is about to become considerably more richer than yow.http://tinyurl.com/d7dpm2rhttp://tinyurl.com/c7gwsqkYou can avoid this by...........1) Ignoring the bailiffs completely, do not be tricked into opening the door to them. There is no law which says you must deal with bailiffs. 2) If you've outstanding Council Tax owing, pay it directly to the council.3) If the council refuses payment because it's with the bailiffs, ask them to put it in writing that they're refusing payment. In any event you can pay them on-line, through their website, or by internet banking etc.4) Bailiffs must leave details of fees and charges you incur for each visit etc. There must be evidence they attended in person. Hand delivered (not posted) documentation. Charging without attending is a "Phantom visit" and an attempt to defraud you. In the event payment is taken by the bailiff for such an offence, this will be fraud.5) They may bill you around £130 for what's called an "attendance fee" or similar. This would almost certainly be spurious. 6) They may bill you £24.50 for what they term a "redemption fee" or "Head H fee". This would almost certainly be spurious.”

“It all sounds dreadful. I shall continue to pay my council tax in full and on time so as not to have to worry about it”

“That does appear to be a sensible solution "Timofey".”
