  1. Oh that's good, they don't believe in their fees enough to want to stand up to defend them then? Ah okay. Guess they are going to give them back to me
  2. I just noticed they have put 'without prejudice' on top of the letter, and i can't exactly remember what that means can anyone remind me?
  3. Well, I live in an upstairs flat so they can't get hold of any garden furniture of anything like that, and I can't drive so they can't have levied on a car ! Dammit I think they must have tried to levy on my luxury yacht... either that or the flying unicorn I whizz about the place on Hey ho. Once more unto the fray!!!
  4. The one time I know they had come, I wasn't in, and it was a day or two after I'd made a payment anyway. Also if they didn't come in, how could they have levied on anything?
  5. I don't know what a form 7 is and pretty sure I haven't seen one. I've no idea what they may have levied on. As far as I'm aware, they have only visited once.
  6. Got a reply from Newlyns today. Not a screenshot, just a letter. The fees they now quote are: Visit fees £42.50 Levy fees £51.00 Enforcement fee £105.00 Original debt £898.98 So now what? They tell me they won't give me a SAR unless I send them £10 (I didn't actually ask for this though, I asked for a screenshot)
  7. Hiya Kimmie I'm pretty new to this but would like to help if I can any. Even if it just bumps it so someone else can answer you better! My LA charged me £95.00 for the court fees, when they took me to court (which I didn't even know they were doing, grrr; they told me it wouldn't as I'd applied for benefit and was waiting for the decision) but that was added on to the debt by the Local authority - not the baliff co. (I think from what I can gather that's their costs of taking you to court in the first place. (how nice of them )
  8. Hi Been reading your thread with interest. I am going through a similar thing with Newlyns, loads of charges added to my account. I absolutely agree, find out how much Newlyns have paid to your Local Authority - I have registered with my Local Authority to get access to my account online and I found out that even though I have paid £721.00 to Newlyns but only £301.50 has made it's way from them into my council tax account yet. make sure you have proof of all your payments and double check them very carefully. Good luck
  9. Thank you very much both for your advise. I really really do appreciate it... went to bed about 7am worrying about all this but finally am feeling a bit positive and hopeful at getting somewhere! I'm getting on with the screenshot letter straight away. Thanks :o)
  10. As far as I am aware they have only made one visit. I don't drive, so have no car, so they couldn't levy on that; and if they attempted to do something like that surely I would have to know? I'm quite confused as to all the legalities on this. I know as soon as the account was taken over they had added in a whole bunch of fees as the debt went up from £880 to just under £1,050 from the very first letter I received from them. I do admit I had a few letters from them before I responded, as a friend had recently died and I just kept putting off dealing with it. It sounds as though right from the start they added on fees which they weren't entitled to add on - can someone point me to somewhere where I can check out what they can (and can't) legally charge me? I feel nervous writing letters until I'm absolutely sure of everything.
  11. Also - I have made all my payments by card, over the phone ... and they charge me a % surcharge on this ie if I paid £100 they would bill me £103, can they do this?
  12. Thank you for that. I'm a bit confused by this .. when Newlyn took over the account from the local authority they straight away added on £220 (they have told me). Their fees. Can they not do that then? This is straight away when they got the account, no-one had visited me EVER then.
  13. I guess so... the logo is the same ... commission? Does that mean that the LA should be paying them?
