Priority Debt

Priority debts fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • Mortgage arrears. This could lead to repossession of the home.
  • Rent arrears. This could lead to eviction.
  • Income Tax and VAT arrears. This could lead to imprisonment.
  • Unpaid fines, e.g. fines set by magistrates court. Unpaid court fines could lead to repossession of goods or even imprisonment.
  • Unpaid maintenance payments (eg Child Support) or Council Tax. This could lead to repossession of goods or even imprisonment.
  • Utilities debts. This could lead to the supply being disconnected.
  • Hire purchase arrears if the item is an essential one. This could lead to repossession of the item.
  • TV licence.

Priority debts must be paid off before any non-priority debts.
