Court costs

The cost of recovering any outstanding debt is extremely high. Court costs are payable to cover the councils additional expenses which have been incurred as a result of late/non payment, and the cost of producing and dealing with the summons/attendance at Court.

If you are summonsed to the Magistrates Court the cost is £50.00.

If you fail to pay the full balance before the hearing day, the council will obtain a Liability Order and this costs £23.50.
