Just recieved a letter for a summons to the county court of the town where I lived for about 10 months as a student and where I handed in my council tax form.
Around Easter I got a letter saying I owed like £400 in council tax(this is off top of my head) since it was like £60 a month backdated to last September and I explained that I was a student and I already handed in a form.
Heard nothing till about 6 weeks ago when I got another letter and this time they claimed it was due to the recently left 2nd tenant not handing in his exemption.
Basically they are trying to chase me for his council tax despite us having seperate tenancy agreements and I dont even know the guy that well.
Can they legally do this as theres no way I can afford to pay the money(now about £700 plus they have added £55 for summary warrant costs despite it not having gone to court and state that I must pay the full amount before the court date!
