  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
  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 wh
  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 c
  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 breat
  14. Thank you. I can't remember if I challenged the Council or not but I will do that now. does anyone know if B&S can continue enforcing any of it, including their 'fees' while the matter is being disputed?
  15. I'm assuming there is a precedent to this. I have a debt to the Council for back Council Tax which I have been paying back as and when I can afford it. Today Bristow and Sutor sent an enforcement agent (who told them he was a bailiff) while I was out and luckily they did not let him in. Nothing, apart from a few items such as my bed and an old stereo which is worth pretty much nothing, on these premises belongs to me as I am just a lodger here and the room is furnished by the landlords. I have never denied that I owe something but the amount is in dispute I have told
  16. Thank you. I'm pretty sure he is seeking legal advice. Haven't heard any more yet
  17. Not finance or vulnerable folk but there is a legal aspect to it. Can't say too much because i don't want his employers to cotton on, not that they are likely to read this but can't be too careful
  18. My friend has been working for the same company for over thirty years and recently had to fill in some sort of assessment form in which they asked if he had any financial issues that they didn't know about so out of honesty he said yes, I have an IVA, which is almost satisfied and has been adhered to from day one. The company have been very unpleasant about this and are trying to say that he is a high risk because of this and are threatening him with the sack over it. He has been through a grilling today and they're asking for further evidence next week before they make 'a decision'. There is
  19. Plus, I may well have 'incurred' their fee. Whether or not I will pay it is another matter
  20. Perhaps it will work. Perhaps it won't. It worked last time. They gave up and sent the case back to The Council who i then paid amicably. Anyway, the account is officially in dispute. I've also written to The Council who, actually, have always been very understanding in the past.
  21. Here is a letter I am sending to B&S. I don't necessarily recommend anyone else doing this but I don't care any more. I am not frightened of these reptiles. I am making payments to The Council and have had my offers of payment not refused, but ignored. THIS MATTER IS IN DISPUTE Bristow & Sutor Bartfleet Road Washford REDDITCH Dear Sir or Madam Re: Council Tax Arrears (Reference Number etc included) Please would you explain why you are sending threatening letters and trying to intimidate me into paying ridiculous, dreamt-up charges allegedly relating to t
