Council Rebanded my house and now want 2 years back payment

Got a letter 4 days ago from the council saying they had rebanded my house and because of how busy they were with all the requests from people wanting there rebanding reduced it had taken them so long to get around to check my house ( I never requested a reband) because the house had an extension put on in 2004 by the previous owners and we moved in in august 2008, so now they want backdated Council tax from 2008 when we moved in which works out at nearly £500.

Going to go down and see them on Friday as we fly out on 2 weeks on holiday and cant just magic up 500 quid like that, if the band has to go up then so be it but we never knew anything about it until the letter and feel it's unfair for them to ask for 2 years difference in tax bands.

I will suggest a payment plan or something but can they do this???

What do you think.

I'd tell them to go & bloody whistle, how can they demand it back-dated, fair enough if they said from the next financial year, cheeky sods :x

as long as you set up some kind of repayment plan they cant refuse it although I would go to the citizen's advice as they are taking liberties, can you imagine if they did this en masse, there would be riots :w00t:

Not the news I wanted but thanks anyway, they will be getting a payment plan setup or they can stuff it.

Sounds fair enough, i'm sure everyone here would be quick to ask for a refund if they had been over charged


I dont mind paying my way but to take 2 years to get in contact to let us know about it is what is getting my goat and to then send a letter asking for the full amount is taking the toilet water.

im sure there was something in the papers some time ago about all councils were going to do it as it had been many years since bandings were done and due to the amount of extensions that people had done the costs of the houses had gone up but their bandings hadn't - its just another way to get more money into the council for services offered

forgot to add -tell them you cannot afford to pay the amount in one go and make an offer of addiotional monthly amout over the next 2 years - you dont want this debt hanging around your neck but at the same time dont make a silly offer that will cause you problems
