Bought house in 1998 and never paid the council tax, i moving away and never received any correspondence so I'm unaware if a warrent was sent out for an arrest.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

It is quite unlikely there is an arrest warrant then. They tend not to do that for council tax debts.

But there could be a risk of custody if you do not pay.

there is only one way to find out if one exists an that is to contact the police and ask. You could have asked the court but they will probably not have information upon it immediately available if it was so long ago.

Can I clarify anything for you?

I'm not sure what you mean?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Does it have to be a solicitor to ask the police this question?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

No, you can do it.

they might not tell you over the phone though. You may have to go and hand yourself in and then you run the risk of an arrest.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Who can apart from myself request this information and how do they do?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

You could get a solicitor to do it.

They would probably demand a payment though unless you have an existing relationship with a firm of solicitors.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can a relative on my behalf request this in formation?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

Anybody can ask anything but they will refuse to tell them for confidentiality reasons.
