  6. Further to this, I never agreed to a payment arrangement. That was just their take on it. I've been paying a hundred quid a month and got it down to 300 so now they are getting fifty quid a month until it's paid. Thanks for all the advice everyone. Much appreciated
  7. It's noteworthy that I paid them a hundred quid this month which is about two thirds of the 'agreeement' (which I never agreed to anyway) and instead of conducting another visit they just sent me a letter with a revised 'agreement'. Basically, they don't care, do they? They just want to get as much money as they can from people for the least possible effort
  8. Ah, I thought there might be some surreptitious little clause skulking about somewhere in the ether. Thank you for that. I will pay this all off at some point but I'll be blowed if they're going to get the almost two hundred quid a month they are demanding
  9. Can anyone on here shed light on something that's been puzzling me for some time? I'm a little unclear on what, exactly, an 'Enforcement Officer, is legally allowed to seize goods in respect of. If, as in my case, there is a Court ruling that the outstanding amount on my Council Tax bill is £340-odd pounds are they entitled just to remove goods to cover that or, if I pay that, can they still enter the premises to take items to cover their own fees, which were NOT included in the Court ruling, or do they have to pursue that matter separately. It will make a huge difference to how I proceed. Thank you
  10. I think, on reflection, and against every emotion taking hold of me, I am going to try and pay this off. Not because I agree with it and their ludicrous 'charges' but simply because I don't want my landlords bothered by something that is not of their doing. If I was living in my own place I would run the beggars ragged until my dying day. I had a most patronising email from them yesterday, which I won't bother you with, that was lies wrapped in the truth. Before I go, I would very much appreciate opinions, if anyone has them, as to whether or not the entire balance is enforceable, including B&S's fees, or just the outstanding amount owed to the Council. That would be interesting to know. Thank you all for your previous replies. This site is a Godsend to so many people
  11. Further to the above, I have made payments to B&S but as the direct to council payments are showing on their site I'm going to make all future payments to the Council
  12. Thank you. Yes, I live fifteen plus miles from work and work a four in the afternoon to midnight shift so there is no public transport and a taxi, if I could even get one, would cost pretty much everything I earned. I am paying the Council direct, although they have said they can't accept payments which is clearly rubbish as they are showing up on B&S's site as paid 'Direct To Council'. I have written to B&S telling them that the vehicles parked outside do not belong to me so they are aware of this. What they do with that knowledge is up to them but I have a copy of the letter and will use it in evidence if it becomes necessary. The motorcycle is worth far more than the debt which, before their ludicrous charges, is now less than three hundred quid. I would pay it off in one if I had it but I simply don't.
  13. I have done that too but in my experience half the time they don't either bother to read them or certainly not reply or acknowledge. trying to cover all bases This may seem a bit naive but I want to gather as much information as I can before I take my next step. B&S are trying to collect an old debt for Shropshire Council. i have been making payments direct to the Council but they say it's out of their hands now and they can't call them off. I've written to them telling them I dispute the amount claimed in the hope it will buy me a bit of time but not holding my breath. There are a few points I would like to raise: 1) Do their 'Enforcement Agents' actually have the same powers as a Bailiff or can I just tell them to clear off? 2) Are their 'charges' enforceable or can I just clear the original debt and then stop paying? 3) Can they, as they claim, break into the house when no one is here (I am a lodger and none of the property on the premises belongs to me, and I have told them this, and the Council, in writing) and what recourse do I and my landlord have if they take property that belongs to the landlord, including their car which is parked outside the house? 4) Are they allowed to take my motorcycle, which I need for getting to work because there is no public transport available due to the hours I work? Thanks for any help anyone can give me. I am thoroughly fed up with these people and I refuse to phone them, requiring everything in writing. besides, I have no phone and no access to one
