Mortgage Rescue is an existing scheme and the only difference that this proposal entails is the delivery agent, i.e. Nottingham City Council rather than a housing association. The scheme will be open to all sections of the community and will neither particularly benefit nor adversely impact any specific groups. The possible exception to this is people from different ethnic groups. The intention is to target the scheme on ex Â¿ City Council properties on traditional estates, where there is perhaps a smaller population of people from non-white ethnic backgrounds.
Presently, in the event of non payment of the Council Tax a summons is issued that incurs costs of Â£70. A summons is only issued for debts of Â£50 or more. Due to the introduction of the Council Tax Reduction Scheme to replace Council Tax Benefit and the change to charges on empty properties we will see an increase in low level debts. To ensure we can effectively collect these low debts, whilst not applying what may be considered as punitive costs, it is intended to introduce summons for debts between Â£20 and Â£100 with costs of Â£20. This will have 2 opposite effects Â¿ 1. Taxpayers with debts of between Â£50 and Â£100 will now be charged lower costs and therefore benefit from this change 2. Taxpayers with debts between Â£20 and Â£50, who up to now escape being sent a summons, will now have costs of Â£20 applied. This will impact mainly on Citizen liable for part of the tax year getting Council Tax Reduction and owners of properties that remain empty for relatively short periods.
