    Are you thinking it might stop you renting privately? As long as the debt continues to be repaid I don't see a problem.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    If you are looking at social housing then a council tax debt can affect your application 

    I used to work for social housing and they would only put you on lowest band if there was a debt for council tax but I think this is down to each council 

    For private rent it could show up in the credit check 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will

    It would be for social housing I'm paying 50 a month to pay my half of it off as that's all I can afford and I worked it out that it will take 10 months to clear...
