It was a summons from the Magistrate's Court - I did not want to attend but although I had contacted the local council repeatedly with a payment plan, as I had not had a response from them I am stuck - I just don't want to be greeted by 2 policemen in the morning for not attending and being arrested!
Thank you so much - I've been so busy paying for last year (bailiffs warrant for possession) that I've not managed to pay for THIS year - sadly this has been rolling on for the 17 years I have owned this property!! It's just a vicious circle!
The repayment offer was sent on the 10th July and as yet I have received nothing from the local council however I can make payment in full on the 10th August.
My concern was just that if I was absent to a Magistrate's Summons that they would issue a warrant for my arrest - the last thing I need is to be carted away at 6.00am tomorrow morning! Especially as I have been trying to call and email them ALL DAY!
My main concern was that, as a serial defaulter they would put them all together and arrest me anyway!
Thanks to your help I can at least sleep tonight!
