In London, thousands of people struggle to afford their council tax. In fact, it’s the most common type of debt we see. Last year, a third of those we helped had fallen behind with payments. That’s why we offer quality, face-to-face advice to help people get back on track.
Debt Free London provides free, independent and expert support on all kinds of money worries, including council tax difficulties.
Our trained and accredited advisors can liaise with the council to assess your options and come up with a suitable payment plan. We can help you avoid costly court appearances and bailiff fees. And we can work with you to reduce your household spending and other outgoings – so you won’t rack up more council tax debt in the future.
Get in touch with our team today by calling 0808 164 2480 or filling in our short assessment form.
What to expect
- We’ll use the information you’ve given us on the phone or in your assessment form to establish the nature and urgency of your debt.
- We’ll book you in for a face-to-face appointment at your nearest centre – or a telephone advice session if required – so we can give you a detailed analysis of the help available to you.
- We’ll discuss your options and talk through the pros and cons of each.
- We’ll establish the best possible solution and help you to resolve your debt – whether that’s by means of advocacy, representation or negotiation on your behalf, or by helping you write letters and supporting you throughout the process.
Every year, we help thousands of people to become debt-free.
