Section 70 – Recovery of charges, interest etc

236.Section 70 provides for the recovery of charges imposed by a local authority under this Part, together with any costs incurred while seeking to recover such charges. The local authority cannot recover charges if a deferred payment agreement could have been entered into, unless the authority has tried to enter one but the person owing money has refused to do so. Subsection (3) allows a local authority to seek recovery of monies owed to it via the magistrates courts (as well as in the civil courts). Regulations may be made by the Welsh Ministers in accordance with subsection (8) to make further provision, for example, in relation to due dates for repayment and charging interest.
