  1. Although I own the property, I don't live at the property. I live elsewhere. The council sent all of the information regarding the court case to the property which I rent. I have always advised tenants to return all mail which is not addressed to them back to the sender. I guess I need to review this because I wasn't expecting any of this to happen.
  2. Hi Caro, No, I did not attend court because I was not aware of it. The judgement was obtained in December 2014.
  3. How to defend against a charging order for council tax? I have been renting out a three-bedroom property which I own to only single people. I prefer to do this because it means less wear and tear on my property. The council appear to view this with disdain and suspicion. The council tax department have always been notified of when a tenant moves in and when a tenant moves out. For some unknown reason the council classify the property to be empty. This is despite tenants registering for council tax and paying council tax. Previous tenants council tax accounts were successfully opened but then cancelled by the council. No explanation was given. To cut a long story short. The council managed to obtain a charging order against my property. I've since received a letter demanding I pay £4,700 in council tax within 21 days otherwise my property will be forcefully sold. How do I defend myself from a corrupt a council which fails to update its records? What else should future tenants do to prove they are living at the property? Previous tenants wrote letters registering for council tax. Supplied utility statements and voting registration evidence. I want to ensure that the council accepts that tenants have lived and do live at the property. What steps should I take to challenge the charging order?
  4. The property is private and has never been owned by the council. I've sent the "empty property officer" an email confirming that I pay the council tax with this months council tax receipt. What else do they want from me?
  5. Details of the letter received from Hammersmith and Fulham council: "Empty property at address in Hammersmith and Fulham Having send a number of letters by post and by hand, over the last 6-months, I am writing one last letter in order to try to get a response. Should I fail to be contacted by anybody with an interest in the above property by 30 April 2014, my next course of action will be to serve a Notice of intended Entry (Local Government - Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976. In bold red writing. Should this Notice also be ignored, I would then need to employ a locksmith in order to force entry into the property." I'm not sure how common this is, but I received the above letter and it was addressed to, To Whom It May Concern from Hammersmith and Fulham council. If a letter is not addressed to me then I will always return it to the sender. I opened the letter by accident and it is important to note that the property is not empty as I have lived there for more than 2 years. I must have returned the previous letters which Hammersmith and Fulham council claim they sent. When I moved into the property I registered to vote and for council tax. I don’t understand what Hammersmith and Fulham council motives are. Especially as this is a private dwelling which is not empty. I do not want to waste my valuable time with any of the cretins in Hammersmith and Fulham council, therefore what legal action should I take to stop them from entering my property under the guise that it is empty? How do I deal with Hammersmith and Fulham council? How do I stop Hammersmith and Fulham council from ever setting foot on my property again? What does Hammersmith and Fulham council really want to do with my property?
  6. I have consistently paid the monthly service charges for more than five years. I have never received any demand for ground rent. I do not know how or to whom it should be paid. Nothing is clear with this freeholder. The Lease Holder team are useless because they themselves did not know why it went to court. The CCJ states non payment of rent. Shouldn't it clearly state that it is for ground rent, when the ground rent was due and the actual amounts that were missed. The freeholders evidence is a list of monthly service charges including the dates I paid them on. At the bottom it states I owe £500. Is this right? How can I fight this and win? The CCJ is in default. Not sure why I never received it.
  7. Yes, I'm here. For some unknown reason I couldn't find this post. No results are returned when I click onto all posted threads.
  8. I bought a lease hold property flat. This is one of the worst mistakes of my life. I pay £1000 per annum in service charges. The freeholder does not provide me with any services. There are no communal areas, gardens, lifts. I pay the monthly service charge using a payment card. I have never failed to pay my service charge. A county court judgment was issued against me for non-payment of rent. I do not understand how this happened? When I inquired further, I was told it was actually ground rent. Shouldn’t this have been clearly stated. According to the freeholder, I should have been paying ground rent separately. I was never notified or informed of this. Up until now, I have never received a single demand for ground rent. Is this right? What is the best action to take?
  9. I was not notified of a previous hearing or judgement. I received this letter this morning. Not happy to find that I have been issued with a county court judgment from Northampton court. Seems unfair and underhanded? How should I go about challenging it? I honestly do not want to have a county court judgement against my name.
  10. I am not sure how common this is for the indigenous students of London? Almost two years ago, I studied for a Masters (Msc) degree at a leading London University in a Mathematics based subject. 99% of the students on the course were overseas Indian students. For some unknown reason I was charged the exact same tuition fees as the overseas Indian students. I should have only been charged £3,000 but I was charged £12,000. I complained non-stop to the universities finance department and they attempted to correct the mistake but failed to do anything to resolve it. I was then officially suspended from the university for not paying the £12,000 tuition fees within the agreed time. This meant I could not attend lectures, sit exams or hand in project work. I complained to the course tutor but I was ignored. I complained to the head of the finance department but I was ignored. I complained to the head of the Mathematics department but I was ignored. I have never received a reply from anyone at the university. I wrote further emails and letters to the university finance department. None have ever been acknowledged. I then received a letter from the University bailiff company demanding I pay £12,000 plus their administration charges. I decided to change my approach by escalating the matter to my local MP. My MP managed to persuade the university to see its failures. I received a revised bill of £3,000. No explanation was given for their mistakes. I was still deeply disappointed at the way my education and time had been wasted. The university expects the full tuition fees to be paid. Why should I pay for a course which I have not received? I should have only been charged for the six weeks I attended the university. None of this was my fault. I find myself in a situation where I have been issued with a county court judgement for £3,495. How can I reverse this or even fight it?
  11. It is Christmas and I was not expecting this. My Mum was very upset and ashamed that someone came to her property and demanded money aggressively. I haven't been able to sleep. I did not know that this sort of thing can occur.
  12. I posted this in the parking section, but I was told to post it here instead. I would like to know the quickest method of getting my money back. This is the first time I have dealt with intimidating bailiffs. TFL Task Force bailiff charged £799 to remove a clamp off my vehicle Hi to everyone. This morning (14 Decemeber 2011) a bailiff working on behalf of TFL clamped my vehicle and forced me to pay £799 to remove a clamp. This was done outside my mum's property. The bailiff told me that my vehicle had been parked on a road in North London and had incurred a parking fine. The incident occurred in June. When I told him that I had not had any parking ticket he told me that it was most likely a camera issued ticket. There were no further details apart from his verbal ramblings. I was not given any options other options apart from paying the fine. I was threatened and told that a tow truck was on its way. The vehicle would then be auctioned if I did not pay there and then. I was told that there was a 2% charge for credit card and told to pay by debit card, which I did. I explained to the bailiff that I was not aware of this and I had not received any communication related to this parking incident. He reffered me to Northampton Court, Transport for London and Task Force bailiffs. Could someone advise me how I can get my £799 back. Is this common? Seems strange how your car can be clamped without any sort of evidence provided? What is the procedure to contest this? If the alleged parking incident occurred in London, why use a court so far way from London.
