What if I don’t pay?

Have you received a recovery notice?

In these unprecedented times, there could be many reasons why you have not paid monies owed to Tandridge District Council. If this applies to you, please complete an arrangement proposal and our budget form so that a Council Officer can contact you either by email or telephone.

The longer you ignore a debt problem, the worse it can become.
