  1. Speaking of threatening bailiffs ,anybody remember Sean James the Repo Man from the Channel 4 Series of the same name?. He was not happy when a bailiff turned up at the house and was quite happy to make threats against the bailiff, although if you watch the video which Sean himself recorded, he was not happy about the way the bailiff had been towards his mother http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OafqV3djnLY&list=UUOGIDFz3b3HPRLxfvo2cl2A
  2. DVLA dont prosecute for "failure to update address", the police will and do report the offence of failure to update address details. The attached FOI request for example shows that in 2013 Police in Scotland recorded 1814 offences of failure to update address. Although slightly off topic, the further two FOI requests, Mellor and Brundell show that the DVLA receive a substantial amount of money from drivers for a variety of offences
  3. Interesting topic Enforcement of a debt against a unincorporated trustee body Interesting to see that HMRC consider "However, charity trustees (who may also be members) have a greater role and have a duty to act prudently in administering the affairs of the charity and are responsible for ensuring that a charity fulfils its legal obligations. As such, trustees can be held personally accountable for properly determined liabilities of a charitable trust in most instances." http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/manuals/dmbmanual/dmbm585220.htm It appears from a brief reading of this http://
  4. Under current regulations (for applications after 29 July 2013) The Child Maintenance Enforcement Commission (CMEC) for a single child will still use a "net calculation" for assesment. and as morally wrong as it may be,the ex -partner has used this to their advantage. The following links may be of interest http://www.familylawweek.co.uk/site.aspx?i=ed113401 http://www.familylawweek.co.uk/site.aspx?i=ed104950 On a personal note, the issue of person(s) being self-employed whilst working for a company is something I know HMRC have been known to take a dim view of (IR35) h
  5. Those of you with OLCI may be interested in the following announced today from the creditman website Pre pack deal saves jobs and protects courses at OLCI Construction Training May 6 2014 Allan Graham from KPMG Restructuring was appointed administrator of OLCI Construction Training on Tuesday 6th May. Immediately on appointment, the administrators sold the business to the group that includes Engineering Real Results Limited, which will deliver the ongoing training to students. All 77 employees transferred to the purchaser as part of the deal, which will a
  6. An interesting topic. The current regulations are not as clear as they could be and could land someone with a large bill. What about those people who "rent" their driveway space, should the person renting the driveway to another be held liable to the rentee for the subsequent cost of the lost vehicle and the cost of court expenses. In this case, what level of proof would an EA accept that the vehicle parked on the debtors driveway is not the debtors but the third party? What about people who have a company car? These are often on lease via their employer, the employee is un
  7. I suspect the programme in question will now be seriously "watered down" and simply an 30 min feature about the activitys of bailiffs and the new rules introduced on sunday. The company in question did this afternoon release a statement about tonights programme http://www.jbwgroup.co.uk/news/2014/jbw-statement/
  8. http://www.justice.gov.uk/downloads/courts/enforcement-officers/taking-control-of-goods-national-standards.pdf The link will work if you hover your mouse over the link and wait briefly, then left click to view the pdf from the justice.gov.uk website or select the whole link below, copy and paste into the url bar http://www.justice.gov.uk/downloads/courts/enforcement-officers/taking-control-of-goods-national-standards.pdf
  9. I have also read the website in question and its claims about "bogus" or "fake" warrants. I also have serious concerns over the advice given about paying fines at the court ATM after a bailiff has attended to enforce the distress warrant and then claiming that the fine is discharged ie No Enforcement fees payable. For those of you who would like a read of the current legislation the following links will be of interest.

  10. As reported from the hertfordshiremercury website, http://www.hertfordshiremercury.co.uk/Cheshunt-and-Waltham/Suspended-sentence-for-bailiff-who-stole-10k-from-Waltham-Abbey-debt-collection-firm-20130923104950.htm. Although things may be on the up for the UK with press reports that the UK is coming out of recession it appears that not every one can get themselves out of debt, even when they themselves are involved in the business of collecting debts on behalf of creditors. A BAILIFF who stole nearly £10,000 from a debt collection company in Waltham Abbey has been spared jail.
  11. TomTubby, May I ask what clarification? CIVEA LTD : Company No. 07512697 CIVEA LIMITED 513 BRADFORD ROAD BATLEY WEST YORKSHIRE UNITED KINGDOM WF17 8LL is as WD stated now dissolved 18/09/2012 CIVIL ENFORCEMENT ASSOCIATION LIMITED 513 BRADFORD ROAD BATLEY WEST YORKSHIRE WF17 8LL Company No. 07605050 is still active However and rather interesting is that civea.co.uk is registered to yet another company at the same address Domain name: civea.co.uk Registrant: The Association of Civil Enforcement Agencies Limited Re
  12. CIVEA as a "body" does appear to still exist. At the same address is also registered the following company: Name & Registered Office: CIVIL ENFORCEMENT ASSOCIATION LIMITED 513 BRADFORD ROAD BATLEY WEST YORKSHIRE WF17 8LL Company No. 07605050 Status : ACTIVE Date of Incorporation : 14/04/2011 Accounting Reference Date: 31/01 Last Accounts Made Up To: 30/04/2012 (TOTAL EXEMPTION SMALL) Next Accounts Due: 31/10/2013 Last Return Made Up To: 14/04/2013 Next Return Due: 12/05/2014 However, It appears that CIVEA is failing to comply with t
  13. Stephen Leslie Dean, who is a currently certificated bailiff http://certificatedbailiffs.justice.gov.uk/CertificatedBailiffs/searchPublic.do?search=stephen+leslie and also a listed current director of a kent based bailiff company was convicted and given the suspended sentence for allowing his dog to be " dangerously out of control in a public place" Stephen Dean caused a Canterbury student to fear for her life when she and her mother were mauled by an alsatian let loose by the former police dog handler.

  14. My Apologies if this has been posted before, but as this forum deals with Bailiff issues, the following may be of help and provide a clear (albeit detailed) explanation of how bailiffs and HMCS should perform when recovering unpaid court fines. http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/85933/response/217629/attach/4/Schedule%204%20contract%20specification.pdf or http://www.justice.gov.uk/downloads/information-access-rights/foi-disclosure-log/courts-tribunals/outstanding-court-fines-annex-a.pdf Schedule 4 Specification for the provision of private enforcement services Havi
  15. Not required if the Bailiff or HCEO has correctly levied on goods. Read the following High Court Appeal. http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWCA/Civ/1998/471.html This particular High Court Appeal Judgement gives very good detail as to exactly what stage a Bailiff or HCEO can re-enter a property to remove goods after a correct levy. (No permission required from the Court)
