  1. Thank yu for this Hallowitch, I will send it off today or tomorrow depending on when I can get out of the house. You are a star x
  2. No I don't he has been very careful, I found that out by calling him. Could you help me with the letter please Hallowitch? I would be very grateful if you could. Thank you.
  3. I have just looked up on the website http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/CertificatedBailiffs/searchPublic.do?search=equita&d-1341904-p=6 to see if the bailiff who has my account is on there and he isn't. Does that mean he is not allowed to be chasing this?
  4. So what you are saying is he could only charge the £42.50 had he visited me twice (which hasn't happened), all the rest of the fees are illegal or wrong? The council should know this as well, so they are hoping I won't know and just agree to them? The letter also states I should contact the bailiff to make arrangements to pay as the council have effectively washed their hands of it. Should I write again to the council and if so what should I put in the letter?
  5. Sorry Hallowitch, I don't fully understand the post, could you spell it out in basic terms for me please?
  6. I did send a letter to the bailiff, got the certificate of posting dated 09/07/09.
  7. I have added the link so you can see what happened so far http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bailiffs-sheriff-officers/203906-help-please.html I have finally got a response from Bimingham City Council after 6 weeks, 4 emails and a threat of legal action. The letter is the usual stuff this is why you owe us x amount etc but 1 thing struck me - word for word I will type what they wrote regarding Equita Bailiffs. With regard to the £255.00 payment notice presented by Equita Bailiffs, I have spoken to an officer there, who has confirmed that £42.50 has been charged for the
  8. Hi, it's me again. I sent two mails to Birmingham City Council and had a standard we will contact you but 4 weeks later, I have heard nothing. This morning I found a Bailiff Removal letter in my letterbox. Address, our ref and date handwritten stating Payment due in full - 24hrs. It then states they have attended to remove my good for the non payment of the council tax etc etc. Can someone give me some more advice on what to do. It again doesnt say how much is owed, so should I call them and ask what they are expecting now? Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks.
  9. Thanks to everyone for their help. I have mailed the council asking for clarity on the above plus confirmation. Hopefully this will be resolved ASALP. Cheers.
  10. Hi, I hope someone can help me. Today I received a Removal Notice from Equita stating as I have failed to pay the outstanding council tax due to Birmingham City Council. Firstly this is the 1st letter I have received and 2nd it doesn't tell me how much I am supposed to owe. I called the bailiff who advised me I owed £255. I told him this was the 1st letter I had received and to be fair he did say he would hold off until Friday to come visit (how generous). Anyway the debit is from an old address from 2007. I called the revenues line for B'ham City Council and was inform
