My estranged sister died in September. I'd had no contact with her for years. She was alcoholic and living on a small nurses pension and state pension, in a housing association one-bed flat. I sorted out the death certificate, arranged and paid for most of her funeral, and informed her landlords, gas, electric, her carers, the council, etc.. of her death.
A month later I received a demand for £129 addressed to her, at my address, but acknowledging her as (dec'd). So I rang Sefton Council and explained, to a very rude girl, the situation. I hoped that was it sorted.
Today, out of the blue, I've just received a Warning of Enforcement threatening extra fees (amounting over £300) to to be added to the bill and that enforcement officers will call at my house (we live 120 miles away) and remove my goods
I've just sent Sefton MBC's Head of Corporate Finance a rather pithy email which I hope will sort this out. I hope....
What a total shambles.
