IS NON PAYMENT OF NON DOMESTIC RATES DEBT STATUTE BARRED
6 replies 222 views
so my partner recieved a letter from the fabulous Bristow and Sutor about a debt withh the local Councl about a business he used to own that closed in 2008 to which he was a sole trader.
He has hidden this debt from me but last week i found letters from the council and B&S dating back from 2017, to my knowledge he has never aknowledged this debt with either the council or with B&S but in usual debt collection style they are demanding all types of stuff..... i know how Bristow work..they are a total pain.
Now the liability order was made against my partner on the 26/06/2014 for non payment of non domestic rates totalling £7273.14, and the councl has now instructed my partner to pay.
I am aware that any contact with Bristows is not ideal at the moment and i'm also aware that if we offer them a payment plan to suit our budget, then they will of course throw it out and tell us that we need to make regular monthly payments of a ridiculous amount.
My question to those in the know is this
Can this type of debt become statute barred? because i am aware that it is approaching 6 years from the lability order and over 12 years since my partners business folded.
Any info will be greatfully recieved, and also any links to templates and forms
