A court summons asking you to appear in court will be sent to each person named on the account. The summons costs will be £86.50 which will be added to your bill.
If you have received a summons you should do one of the following:
- pay the arrangement on the summons, or
- contact us to make a different arrangement; or
- pay the full amount outstanding including the costs
If you pay in full before the hearing date - court action is cancelled and no further action is taken.
If the full amount is not paid before the hearing date - a liability order will be obtained on the hearing date. This allows us to collect the debt by other means if you don’t keep to your arrangement.
We don’t have the facilities at court to deal with account queries. You should contact us before the hearing date if you have any queries about your bill.
