Scottish and English debt laws are different, so if you are a Scottish resident and have questions on debt, then this is the place to post.

#203109 Hi,
Havn't been on for a bit but i need some advice on our council tax arrears,I have just been made redundant (its the credit crunch you know) and both my OH and me were subject to a wages arrestment i finished mine this month my oh has 2 months to go but the dca said that they would not go for another arrestment but instead sent a payment card as there was still some outstanding and once my oh has finished hers they would accept one single payment per month via the post office to clear our arrears .
My question is this since i will be claiming benifits do i just call them and offer a token payment or is my oh's payment good enough for them as we would say we are still paying of the debt.
thanks for any advice
