You, or your client themselves, should also make a mandatory reconsideration request on the same issue in parallel with the above judicial review pre-action letters. You can use the following template to do so:
Council Tax - note changes have been made to deny CTR eligibility to people with pre-settled status from 1st April 2020 by the Council Tax Reduction Schemes (Prescribed Requirements) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 SI 23/2020. Do not therefore use this letter for clients with pre-settled staus. If you have a client with settled status you may wish to edit the letter to point out that while the new Regulations exclude those with pre-settled status they do not exclude those with settled staus, and those with settled status are therefore eligible for CTR.
PLEASE TELL US HOW DWP / HMRC / RELEVANT LOCAL AUTHORITY RESPOND
By emailing JRProject@CPAG.org.uk
This helps us keep the letters up to date and effective for other advisers.
