  1. Hey Hallowitch, long time! Did everything you said, wrote letters and emails to everyone in the council and my MP, still no-one wants to know! It's an absolute joke! As it stands now, the bailiffs have posted through another liability order saying that they are going to force entry and that that is a totally legal thing to do! How dare they scare people with their bullying tactics, bloody leeches, the lot of them. Have started paying the council now regarding the outstanding council tax arrears and not heard anything to the contrary, so as far as I'm concerned, Chandlers Limited can go swim for their commission!
  2. It's a liability order from unpaid council tax. From what I read on the internet last night, they can only break in if issued with a "warrant of execution" by a county court, of which they have to notify us of their intent before they come anyway. I hate what these guys are doing to poor people - frightening people who cannot afford to pay anything, through no fault of theie own. I really don't know how Gordon Brown hasn't looked into their illegal procedures. My original debt, according to the bailiifs, was £1296.80. Miraculously, it is now only £1046.80 - a difference of £250!! Now, how can they get away with that?! They should all be shot!!!!
  3. Thanks for that - nice to know there's still life on this planet! Just been looking it all up myself and think I've answered it - unless it's income tax arrears, which it isn't, then they cannot enter my property by force. I'm definitely not stupid enough to leave a window or door open either!
  4. Please help me. Having major problems with bailiffs and council combined! Can anybody answer me "If bailiffs have a liability order, can they enter your home by force, or is it still the same old story of that you have to open the door to them?" I'd appreciate a helping hand again!!
  5. Oh dear! Just finished watching that ourselves - reality TV's a growing art, if thats what you'd call it, but stranglely, it's very addictive!! Enjoy your vodka/irn bru & thanks for the heads up on the other threads.
  6. I'm planning on throwing ALL the windows open and dancing around to very loud music on Sunday!! I've already downed a few Jack Daniels and coke, but sure will give the vodka/irn bru a go - I used to love irn bru as a kid!
  7. Well hopefully this will give the council a kick up the a**e now and they'll have to do something about it - it's getting beyond a joke and i'm sick and tired of sitting here with the curtains closed! Parked the car about 10 minutes away, thank you for that genius tip!!
  8. WOW!! Well, I hope it works, coz nothing else has! Thank you once again, you have managed to calm my nerves!
  9. Thank you Hallowitch - I'll be waiting patiently. In the meantime, I guess I should feed my hubby too!
  10. I called them on Tuesday and again today because I hadn't heard from them. This is really all becoming too much for me - I can't live like this anymore, I've been in the dark for a week now and no bugger in authority wants to help! I read on another thread that if someone is depressed and get a note from the doctor, that the council have to take the debt back and tell the bailiff to f*** off - Is this true?
  11. I seem to be getting absolutely nowhere with the council - they are driving me nuts! I have written to my MP, not heard anything from her and council have said that they have spoken to bailiff company and they have agreed with us that we will repay them an extortionate amount a month over the next 6 months - THIS IS NOT TRUE!! We haven't heard from Chandlers Limited since the knock on the door last saturday. We have since found out that the bailiffs are charging an extra £292.80 on top of the original debt. I have said all this to the council, but they aren't interested. Any ideas?
  12. Thank you very much for that advice. I have just looked at this blog and its very interesting indeed! Hopefully, we have sorted this mess out now, but it still doesn't change the fact that I, as are many people, am still sitting in my property with everything closed up, including the curtains! It's a lovely sunny day here and I'm sat in darkness! We live on the ground floor of a block of flats, so I'd rather not take any chances of them seeing me. Thanks again for your help - its much appreciated!
  13. I shall do that and I have made a note of every bit of advice that you have given me so far - I am eternally grateful. I can now go to bed and sleep!
  14. Well you really are a gem, aren't you Hallowitch! You should become a lawyer and get paid mega bucks for this information! You have certainly brightened my day and re-assured me that these B*****d's can't get away with this crap! I have just finished emailling my local MP - only hope she does something to stop this happening again to another of her constituents. I will call the council tomorrow and tell them everything that has gone on over the weekend and exactly what these guys have been spouting on their behalf. I will also take up the notion that sticking £250 extra onto my bill is not really gonna help any of us get out of debt in a hurry! If I knew who you were Hallowitch, I would send you a big buch of flowers to say thank you for all your help.
  15. Thank you for the warm welcome! I understand that you are not an expert, but you have a great knowledge of what bailiffs can and can't do. There was a figure on the letter and it is about £250 more than the actual debt - All he's done is knock on my door, scare the crap outta me and speak rudely to my husband on the phone - Now's there's a job worth doing, £250 for what, 10 minutes work?!?! I sincerely appreciate your comments and will call the council tomorrow to try to negotiate a payment plan hopefully, and to tell them how Chandlers Bailiffs are using their name to scare people out of their wits. Thank you once again Hallowitch - you are a star!!
  16. My husband and I had a visit from 2 beefy enforcement officers on Saturday and naturally, I didn't open the door because I was alone, but I overheard them say that they would return at Midday with a locksmith and they posted a letter through our letterbox confirming they would be back from 12pm onwards. When my Husband came home from work at 10am, he rang them and they said that unless we could pay the whole amount immediately, he would send a local removal firm round to collect our possessions and they would enter our premises with or without our permission and break the door down! Can they do this? From the other comments that I have read on this site, they can't, but i'm really scared now that if I do go out, they will come and break into our home and take our stuff. We are always very vigilant about locking doors/windows, etc.. As far as we know, these people do not have a walking possession, or they haven't said that they have anyway! I have thought about calling the council and pleading with their better nature and reporting this incident of harrassment and hoping they will take back the warrant and set up a payment plan. I'm scared that if I do open the door, that by them putting there foot over the threshold, even by an inch, is that classified as giving permission to come in? Please help us because I really don't know what to do.
  17. Can I just ask, what the hell am I supposed to do if not put a query on here? I DO have a problem with Council tax arrears AND Bailiffs - Is this not the given subject of this thread?
  18. I am very sorry for attaching myself to your thread - I didn't realise that I had to start my own one - this is my first time on this site and it is not very explanatory.
