  1. Hi there, we have just taken on a small holding, the national grid have run power to the barn from the station...however at this moment in time there is no meter..am I right in thinking that the meter will be fitted by the electricity company that we decide to use?? and also could you give me a rough idea of price or is it free if we are going to be using them as our energy supplier?? thanks in advance for any help
  2. Hi there, I was in a very similar situation to yourself...I followed the advice given on here, and it worked, the bailifs gave up and it was returned to the court, where I continued to make payments to them 1.get a stat dec and keep several copies, post one by recorded delivery to Marstons. 2.keep making your affordable repayments to the court via the online payment system..if not keep your payments to the side, so when it is returned to court you can make any missed payments [which will show your willingness to pay] 3.keep all doors and windows locked at all times. 4
  3. Hi Davidcl...In the end I guess you could say I won, I stood my ground, refused to enter into verbal dialogue with the bailiffs and in the end it was returned to court where I was able to continue making my payments
  4. she has been in communication by phone, and thoroughly explained the situation, although sympathetic they say she is liable as the tenancy was in her name, she really wants to avoid a meter to pay back the debt, so is going to set up an affordable direct debit i believe, however they want her to send a copy of the tenancy so they can transfer the bill and account to her name.
  5. Hi there, After the help from the caggers sorting out some of my own issues I thought I would seek advice for a friend... She moved into a council house with her partner approx four years ago, the tenancy is in her name....at some point they switched power suppliers to Npower and the account was in her partners name...the electric was on a meter so no issues there, but the gas was on a quarterly bill, un be-known to my friend her partner was not paying the gas bill, and it wasn't until she split from him and she received a letter from Npower was she aware of the problem, she has sinc

  7. a lot of it is down to the good people on this site...without their help I would have duly rolled over and paid whatever they were requesting...I just hope my stories will give others encouragement to fight on and not be pushed around
  8. most definitely!!! but who?? I can quite easily see how the actions of some of these bailiffs could worry someone into the grave...I consider myself to be of a strong disposition...but all the grief and hassle I received from the bailiff's was so stressful and worrying!!
  9. As you currently live with parent in-laws get them to make a stat declaration and get it witnessed / signed by a solicitors usually cost £5-10 my partners cost a fiver...as below STATUTORY DECLARATION I, name Address Make the following declaration under the Statutory Declarations Act 1835: All items contained within the property at the above address and within its boundaries, are owned by Mr/Mrs xxxxxxx. There are no items within the property or its boundaries belonging to any other person. I understand that a person who intentionally makes a false statement in
  10. i went through almost exactly the same scenario as your friend even to the point of a formal complaint to the CEO of the council, even then first time round all the council done was pass my complaint to the bailiff firm...It took a second follow up letter titled unsatisfactory handling of complaint before the case was seriously looked at and dealt with, with them owing me the over charges
  11. I thought I would share my experience of dealing with Marston and Equita, and how I had a victory over them with the help of the caggers so as to give encouragement to others who find themselves in the predicament of having to deal with bailiffs!! I'll start with Equita...after moving i ended up probably 2 years later with a letter from Equita regarding unpaid council tax, OK fair enough I owed it, so being naive at the time I entered into an agreement with the bailiff accepting their additional charges as par for the course...I paid my monthly payment for what seemed like an eternity, an
  12. I received the appeal pack today, I have been told I have grounds to appeal as i was unfairly fined for a speeding offence....I accepted the 3 points and £60 fine, sent off my licence etc next thing i know I get a court date...I contacted the court stating I had sent off payment etc with my licence...i spoke to the local speeding fines office who also had no record of it, but did say it might have got lost while they were moving offices...I spoke to the court explaining the situation, and they told me to put all the relevant info an email, which i did....yet on the day of the hearing they gave
  13. Hi WonkeyDonkey, Would like to say a big thank you for all your help and advice, and the encouragement to stay firm when they applied the pressure, on several occasions I nearly folded and agreed to meet their demands, but your words of advice really helped...Today I received a letter from the court demanding payment of my fines in full [Marstons have obviously had the account returned to them following my partners stat deceleration and my refusal to communicate with them] I phoned them up and explained my situation and they have agreed an affordable payment plan over the phone, They also
