Suspicious summons document

Please note that these articles give general guidance only and do not constitute legal advice. Always consult a trained legal adviser or legal counsel.
One point I would like to make known here. If you have received a summons from your local council for non payment of council tax, please ensure that the summons document displays the seal of the issuing court. What is a seal? A court seal is a stamp of the court that issued the document. All court documents must be sealed and issued, in other words they are not issued unless sealed. These are examples of court seals.....without the seal being displayed it is not a genuine court document and you have no need to act upon it for any reason.
