  1. Thank you very much for you responces. I need to discuss this with my wife to find out exactly what has happened. Is it likely at this late stage the Bank would accept an offer to begin clearing the arrears. My wife is only working part time and I have a company pension so we could not afford more ethan £100 a month. Should my wife contact the Bailiff and tell them we are dealing with the Bank.
  2. I today found out that my wife owes money on a credit card and court judgement has been made against her. The Court bailiff has sent a letter to say they will be calling with a van to remove goods. I am aware that for Council Tax I do not have to allow the bailiff in but am unsure if this apples if a judgement has been made for an outstanding loan. Can I refuse entry to enable be some time to come to an arrangement with the credit card company. The debt is for 3,000 and I would be able to afford £100 a month on behalf of my wife Thanks
  3. Thank you for you replies. I am happy to take this to the next step and I have googled the form 4 complaint. That seems to be the way forward. Thanks
  4. Hallowitch Thanks for posting than agian. The problem I have is that I am getting conflicting advice, and my wife is getting fed up with the bailiff continuing to pursue us for his fee. The bailiff insists that this ruling has now been superceeded. He has however not been able to provided any details of the relevent ruling. I have asked on another board and been told a bailiff is allowed to charge for a levy taken through a letter box (not a window) and then posted. He can include any items in clear view through the letter box
  5. The Bailiff has said he will be returnting at 6 oclock on Monday morning with a van to collect the goods, this will cost an extra £120
  6. Hello Again The Bailiff has called again this morning. He is now claiming I owe £410 which is the amount of the original levy I refused to pay, approx £75 plus fees. There is no money owing to the council. I refused to pay the levy as it was carried out through the letter box and I did not believe it valid. The bailiff never entered my home and I never signed any documents. Can someone please tell me were I can get a definative answer as to whether a levy carried out through a letter box is valid. Many thanks
  7. Could someone also please tell me at what point is a bailiff considered to have gained "peaceful" entry. If he places his foot inside your house is that considered entry.
  8. scatz1972 I have a new invoice with the levy amount added of £54 plus a note, unsigned, saying he had secured the outstanding debt against a grandfather clock situated in our hall and viewable in daylight through our letterbox. If I am certain that he is not allowed to do this then I intend to take the matter as far as it can be taken.
  9. Hallowitch No it is a new invoice staing the amount of Council Tax owed, the cost of his visit and the cost of levying goods
  10. Hallowitch Thank you once again. Can I just clarify for future reference, and also as I intend to complain, was he lying when he said a levy taken through a letter box is valid. I do not intend the distress this has caused my wife to pass unchallenged, if he was overstating his powers and will make a formal complaint through my solicitor. Thanks
  11. Hallowitch Thank you for your reply "SJAMK please start your own thread and please tell me you have this in writing He posted a letter through my door 15 minutes later to say that he levied goods in my hall which he could view through my letter box and had made an additional charge for doing so. He has said he will be returning to collect the charges with a van on Monday. He has said that will cost an extra £240 tell your wife not to worry machine gun talk from a water pistol" The letter does not stae that a van will be calling but it does include the charge for th
  12. Good Afternoon I was visited by a Bailiff a few hours ago regarding and outstanding Council Tax bill on a rental property i wowned some years ago. I do not owe the money and was a the Council offices on Thursday and was told the matter was on hold. As it is Saturday the Bailiff could not contqact the council to confirm this and insisted I pay the money or he would levy goods. I told him He could speak to the Council on Monday and confirm what I had said and that I would notbe letting him in. He posted a letter through my door 15 minutes later to say that he levied goods in my hall w
