  1. Its mainly my husband. Most of the time when he's not on form he buries his head in the sand. When his head is straight he's like a dog with a bone. He will sit and trawl for hours and hours. He used to run his own business and employed 40 people! However in 2009 it became a victim of the recession when a certain high street bank removed funding overnight and then, in turn, made money out of its break up!!!!!! **** of the highest order!!!!!! ! He has seen both sides of the argument, at various times, and having used the services of bailiffs in the past he has a les
  2. This isn't the letter sent to the council! The letter to the council outlines what we think are the failings and that we were not able to reach an amicable solution with Rossendales. They don't want to enter into a payment plan because it reduces the amount of fees they can levy!!!! isn't that the point! If there is reasonably doubt then all parties should come to an amicable solution! Rossendales, however, DONT WANT TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They rely on people being scared!
  3. Dodgeball Reading through the new legislation it appears the only bit that may not be relevant is the charging of fees and breakdown. However it is relevant in that there is a clear and precise procedure before and after and if there are mitigating circumstances (with supporting evidence) it would be criminal to proceed.
  4. Thank You alreadyexists. This is the letter we have sent via email, with a delivered and read flag, post and have a copy to hand to the EA if he turns up again. Funnily enough about three hours after they read it the EA tried to call me and left a message to call him back! I haven't done so far as we are waiting for the council. This letter was based on the fact that we believe we are right to challenge the delivery of the "Notice of enforcement" due to circumstances outlined in the thread. Should it be required the people that we do swap post with will be more than hap
  5. Dodgeball The car is on HP and was bought with a small deposit on a 5 year agreement. I'm two years in and the value of the car is approximately 33/35% of its new price. Car values have collapsed over the last two years! As I said its probably £2500 in negative at the minute. So how can there be any interest, or value, in it to myself?
  6. Dodgeball I use my car for getting to and from clients houses in a rural area so yes I do need it for my job! without it no job! My husband can work up to 15 hours at a time so without it he would have to leave his employment! How would that help?
  7. Already exists. Yes I do need my car for work. We also live in a Village with hardly any bus service. Due to council cut backs, the bus service has been cut from every half hour to every four hours, and we only get one train a day! It is nigh impossible to get anywhere without a car! it really annoys me that our local authority charges some of the highest council tax in the UK but we seem to get nothing for it!!!!!!!!! What little we did get has been withdrawn!!!! On top of that both myself and husband work antisocial hours and my husband has a 20+ mile journey to w
  8. Dodgeball & Bailiff Advice My husband has just read your reply and his question is this. How can they rely on National Standards yet we cannot? There must be balance!
  9. Thanks Alreadyexsits. I work as a community care worker and use my car for work. I've looked through some threads and according to them if a show evidence that its is insured as such this is proof . Also ive got a settlement figure and a valuation and the car is worth £2500 less than I owe:jaw: So, although I'm not sure I would think they couldn't do anything with that.
  10. Yes we did receive the liability order. But it was in August of last year and we had paid after this. Can they invoke the liability order at a later date? I didn't contact the council as a thought the outstanding amount which was for only one month would be added to this years bill! Finally, yes there is a car on the drive but its on finance so can they take control of this? I ask as I'm an avid watcher of Can pay we'll take it away and it always seems to be that if there's finance on it they cant take it! I must say that the High court Bailiffs' seem like great guys and private EA's
  11. Sorry a bit at crossed purposes as my heads all over the place! The council tax is in joint names . Its ironic that my husband is on leave at the moment other wise Mr [removed] would have probably terrorised our 13 year old daughter!!!!!!!!
  12. Yes His name is on the LO and bills. Why do you ask? As for the Council there was little contact and we have been paying our council tax for the current year which is up to date. The post issue has been ongoing for Ten plus years!!!! No he didn't gain access my husbands quite a imposing figure when stood in a doorway! Sorry as I said earlier I'm new to this and I'm not quite sure of all the terminology! But NS is National standards as far as I'm aware and every government dept. has to ensure that standards are met by not just themselves but the contractors they emplo
  13. Hi everyone. New to this forum and I'm hoping someone can help? We hand a visit from a [edited] of Rossendales the other day trying to collect outstanding council tax. Fortunately I wasn't in but my husband was! he told my husband that there was an outstanding amount to pay of £508!!!! that he was there to collect that day. My husband works away and explained that I wasn't there and didn't know anything about it. What my husband did say however was that Mr had an aggressive air about him and was insistent that he was there to collect or take control of goods
