Last week we reported on a false rent book used by Hackney Council in a case against one of our clients. Z2K are still assisting Mr O’Shaughnessy to pursue a formal complaint, and to seek an explanation.
A mother of five was suffering from stress because she was being threatened by bailiffs for unpaid council tax. The debt arose because of her understandable delay in claiming restored council tax benefit in a confused period after she had been out of her house following a fire. Z2K persuaded the council to withdraw the bailiffs and to accept monthly payments of £3.65 instead of the £250 up front demanded by the bailiffs.
