  1. Can I ask whether the company is private or public sector and how many people were there on the interview panel? I have been there and experience tell me that without enough evidence its very unlikely that the practice is challengeable legally or by a complaint. It would be much better for now to take care of yourself and concentrate on other things that you enjoy. Get out of the office at lunch for a walk, meditate.join a gym etc and eat healthy. Try to stay positive and instead of complaining possibly have a chat and let your manager know how you feel and your concerns (By now they
  2. Got confused- those early figures were based on my assumptions. These are the correct figures provided by both the council and bailiffs
  3. Why would they have seized goods that didn't belong to me? Am I right to assume that the seizure was invalid as the car didn't belong to me? Where should I sent my letter to- a little confused?. I am presuming to the council but not sure which will be the right department. If not resolved will try Local Ombudsman. Below is a breakdown of the cost Council Tax arrears £76 Court Fees(Summon and Liability) £213 Bailiff 1st Visit Fee, Jan 16th- £24.50 Bailiff 2nd Visit Fee, Jan 17th- £18.00 Payment made direct to council, Jan 17th- £289 Bailiff Levy Fee, Feb 3rd- £33.00 Bai
  4. The council tax arrears were £176 . Liability and Summons cost £113. Bailiffs fee £250.. Just to clarify they clamped the car for about 10 minutes before I made a payment so no goods were ever seized. I am inclined to think that the Bailiffs fees are also way too high. Isn't that they should have charged me fees only for a 1st and 2nd visit. Where can I get this breakdown. from the council or bailiffs?
  5. Rundles are the bailiffs. The letter was hand delivered by bailiffs and at the time the amount due was £519. The owner of the car was never advised as bailiffs insisted the documentation available to be adequate for them to seize the vehicle. Although I disagreed they warned me for further fees if they were to wait for a longer period for the evidence.
  6. The actual council tax arrears was £178 and including fees £289, which was the payment made to the council. The fees paid to bailiffs fees was £250 bringing the total to £539 Below is just a brief summary Adjustment Notice- issued 5th of April Ist Payment date - due 1st of May and installments arranged to February 2014 Mid May- Council claims reminder send 11th June- Payment made and account up to date- Arrangements set up over 12 months Payment due 1 July pending standing order forms Reminder issued 9th of July followed by default on 16th of July Payment made 23rd
  7. The bailiffs confirmed LO was paid and that they were pursuing fees. I have a receipt of the LO payment to the council. What will be the process of pursuing the chargeback with the bailiffs?
  8. I initially fell in arrears with my Council tax after they had failed to provide standing order forms. I went on to make a late payment, which was immediately followed by a summons letter. After receiving the summons letter I contacted the council and was advised not to attend court as I was on job seekers allowance and that they wouldn't arrange or set up any arrangement before the court date. They didn't mention that they would be pursuing the debt and obtain a liability order. Upon receiving the liability order following the court hearing which they advised me not to attend, I c
  9. Requested a SAR from Halifax and they have sent me the information but there is no Default Notice or Termination Notice. I have 2 credit reports, which I downloaded online on different occassions which show different Default dates. I have also disputed the information before and Halifax seemed to have gone to mess up with the file following these disputes. At one time they told me there was no Default recorded and later wrote again to me apologising for providing me with misleading information. Currently the debt is with a DCA but the records from the SAR shows the debt
  10. She is a PA and was partly involved in the recruitment process. I vave a had a meeting with boss who seems to be clearly on her side. The boss started raising even more issues and that high performance is expected of me and compared me to another colleague who seems also overloaded and extremely stressed.
  11. Recently started a role a few months ago and there is a colleague who has been undermining me from the 1st day. I am told that I was never on her list of prefered candidates and that she would have hired someone young, bright, ambitious than me. Apparently it was the bosses decision to hire me. Recently there are other ideas that my colleague wanted me to support her so she could pass them over to the boss and this would then have been implemented by me. The ideas would have been a serious policy violation with a third party and I refused. Straight away after my refusal )same conversatio
  12. What about the other PCN they are chasing? Should they be combining these two together? I have no recall on this PCN but the council said this was issued 3 years ago. The original chase was for the recent paid PCN but the council seem to have picked on the old PCN and passed this over to Phoenix Bailiffs?
  13. I received a Notice Before Removal from Phoenix Bailiffs for two Unpaid Penalty Charge. I had however made a direct payment for the other PCN using an automated system to the Local Authority and it has been about 2months now since I made the payment. I phoned the LA and they confirmed receipt of payment but that I still have to pay the fees and the remainder of the payments direct to the Bailiffs .The Local Authority informed me that the other unpaid pcn was issued 3years and do not seem to recall this or have details regarding this one. I am now looking for help as to what I can do
  14. I filed a Statutory Uut of Time Declaration using a PE2 and PE3 form but the application was refused by the Local Authority. They refused referring to TE9 form (Don't understand why as I did not complete this) and cite that the Penalty Charge Notice on the form refers to a moving Traffic Offence PCN not a parking offence. The Local authority also mentioned that on review of the case the council was in possession of the address supplied on the TE9 form and that the Notice to Owner was sent to that address. They also provided photographic evidence of the PCN attached to a wind
