Dear Three Rivers District Council,

who are the magistrates contracted to during a council tax hearing?

Are these hearings individually sat per person or multiple lists are signed off in one order?

Yours faithfully,

Albert of the Matthews family

Dear TRDC - FOI,

With regards to the complaints list, The Council Tax (Administration and Enforcement) Regulations 1992 states .... it is not to be treated as a sum adjudged to be paid by order of the court.

Could you explain why it is with a complaints list and liability orders follow without due process and what part of the process makes the above act sentence void?

Please include any info about the following action, How do enforcement agents get the authority from Schedule 12 of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007, if the liability hearings are non HMCTS hearing.

Yours sincerely,

Albert of the Matthews family

Your request under the Freedom of Information Act is not in clear terms,
but to assist, I have enquired of the court process.
 
Set out below is the view of the Council's Revenues Manager:
 
i) The Council Tax complaint is signed by an authorised signatory of the
Magistrates' Court and it is only after this that the Summonses are issued
with a specimen of that signature.
 
ii) Liability Orders are applied for in bulk and the names are contained
on a list presented to the Court at the time of the Hearing.  The
Liability Order application list is duly signed by the Magistrates against
all the names contained on the list except cases that are marked
'withdrawn' or 'adjourned'
 
iii) Liability Orders are recognised as lawful in a court of law, and meet
the standards set out in government statutes and laws.
 
iiii) Once the Liability Orders are applied and approved by the Court,
Council Officers check each individual account and decided on the next
appropriate recovery action, one of which is to pass the order to its
Enforcement Agents, i.e., Bailiffs
 
Any further queries about the court process should be referred either to
your own solicitor or to the Clerk to the Justices at the relevant
Magistrates Court.
 
Regards
