I sent a e mail with a letter as a vunrable person and also a copy of a letter I sent to council to take back the det. Will that of stopped them coming or could they still come so late after the 48hr notice. I have children wanting to go out and play but I am scared he will arrive and they will run up to him ect ect.

All I want to know is what I put above please as need to let kids out without worring do they come within the 48hrs or not

Can they come without warning - yes.
Will it stop them coming - no.
You should contact the bailiff firm and arrange a repayment plan of any outstanding Council tax.
if you do not believe you owe it then you should speak with the Council direct.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

so even though its been nearly a week since a recived the 48hr notice they culd still just turn up....

Sadly yes. I know it is distressing which is why you might be better contacting them or the Council to resolve this unhappy issue.
