Yes you can, but if the Bailiffs pursuing the debt have already made can arrangement with you, you might be obliged to honour that arrangement e.g. £150 per month, for the 12 months that you are bankrupt. Just so our readers understand, a Liability Order occurs when the Council has given up on trying to recover council tax arrears from a tenant and approaches the court to intervene. This invariably results in vigorous Bailiff activity – the worst kind as non-payment of Council Tax is a criminal matter. If you are lucky, you might have a Bailiff who gives up once you have gone bankrupt, but don’t bet on it. The Official Receiver might not interefere with such arrangements unless there is a clear possibility of setting up an income payments agreement.
