We havent had an increase in Sequestrations for Council Tax (YET). I know that some Councils are though, in particular North Lanarkshire although others are falling suit, particularly with homeowners.
DAS seems to be the way to stop it, according to my colleagues in North Lanarkshire.DAS is suitable for 2 or more debts (this can include more than one years Council Tax as each year is treated separately).
However a DAS needs to be done VERY VERY quickly (involving faxes mandates and a LOT of work as the timescale is very short to prevent it).
Remember it need to be an Accredited Money Advisor that can oversee a DAS, see
for a list of accredited advisors. Due to the low take up of trained advisors (a long story), DAS is not possible in every area, as there are not enough to meet the demand.............
