  1. Hi all, sorry for the long post but never been in this position before.... we received an enforcement letter through the door last night in my old name ( i changed my name via deed poll) demanding £542 . after doing some ringing around we've established its for a part unpaid council tax bill in 2014 ( which we wasn't aware of until we got this letter yesterday) phoned the council who advised the amount outstanding is £192.04 and gave us the dates (it was an honest mistake at a crap time & didn't even realise it wasn't paid until now) they are saying they wont help now i
  2. Hello all. My husband is in the process of sorting out his debts from a very grey period of his life. We had 2 letters regarding old council tax debt - one from the court and one from a dca. Both are being looked into - dates etc. Hubby was a drug addict for many years and his recollection of things is hazy at best. However, I'm on the case and have been dealing with letters as they arrive. 3 nights ago, an enforcement agent from Bristow & Sutor arrived at 8:30pm - hubby was at an NA meeting so he agreed to deal with me. This was also a council
  3. Hi all, I have had a Notice of Enforcement from Bristow and Sutor claiming that I owe them something in the region of £65 + £75 compliance fee for a Council Tax Debt that I apparently have from an old property that I rented. I always paid by DD and only cancelled the DD after seeing that no payments had gone out for a while, therefore I believed that I was discharged of any responsibilities. Fast-forward a year and I receive a Notice of Enforcement dated 23/8/17 claiming the above figures and that this has been through the courts. How would you suggest that I proceed? If there i
  4. 2 years ago I had a property in Oxford repossessed. There was a shortfall of 3 months when council tax wasn't paid and the council have been chasing me ever since. I kept them abreast of my financial situation right the way through but they still insisted on setting the bailiffs on me. On 5 occasions I received letters informing me that bailiffs would be turning up at my residence to seize my goods within 24 hours, they never turned up. I took time off work on each occasion.....could I invoice them for not turning up?

  6. I was visiting my friends last week, she has a sorned vehicle on her drive which she had sold two days before, the new owner was due to collect it the same night A white van appears on her drive and a man knocks on the door, My friend thinks its a delivery for the neighbour, my friend opens the bedroom window, and has a conversation with the Gentleman on the door, he says he is a bailiff and he has come to collect 392.00 for an unpaid parking ticket, I can honestly stay my friend was stunned, she did not know anything about it, she contacted the Local council,
  7. I have received a letter "Enforcement Process Commenced for a penalty charge notice to Birmingham City Council for which I know nothing about. I am now stressed wondering whats its all about. The NOtice of enforcement says I owe BCC £97 but sum outstanding is £407. A warrant was issued 08-10-15 which I have never received or even know whats its for.

Please give link to relevant document/proc
  8. I would like to ask for any advice about enforcement agent, Bristow & Sutor (B&S). 3 months back B&S enforcement agent was in my rented house for the first time and tried to get into by locked door but I was alone at home as my partner was in Medical Centre at this time and I didn't opened. EA also been in my neighbour to get- I suspect - information about us because she let him in (we have non-friendly "relation" with neighbour). I didn't opened because of fear, I thought that was crime, I haven't had idea that was agent from Council, he left letter with his mobile
  9. Hi all could do with some advise please, I am being harassed by Bristow & Sutor, they have 3 liability orders for outstanding council tax ranging from £29 to current year £910. I have ignored all contact from Bristow & Sutor, but I did make an arrangement with the council last month. they passed the details of this arrangement to Bristow & Sutor, who emailed me acknowledging this arrangement. I have kept to the arrangement and make payments due as arranged, but I paid directly onto councils online payments. now I am getting emails and letters
  10. Hello all,Basically my friend had a fine from Nottingham City Council for parking in a disabled spot in Nottingham town.This has been left as they didnt receive any correspondence about the issue.They didnt receive any paperwork as at the time they were living away from home due to extremely stressful circumstances, namely their child was in a mental health unit in Nottingham so they stayed in Nottingham to be with said child.Needless to say yesterday they received a visit from an agent of Bristol and Sutor, its been through court etc and they want hundreds of pounds.They have told the Bailiff
  11. hi all im new here and looking for a bit of advice with bristow and sutor bailiffs. the story so far is a few years ago i got into some trouble with council tax and got chased by the bailiffs for it. I ended up getting threatened so much by them on the door and on the phone that i asked my mum to help me pay off the bailiffs and i would give her the money monthly, which she was kind enough to do. Im now in trouble again as i was made redundant last year and had my third child all in a matter of a few weeks so my head was all over the place as you can imagine, i had
  12. Sorry for delay! Cant get on here to respond easily. The B&S debt is for a council tax arreaes, I let them in before i had an understanding of such things, they levied on my couch, microwave, tv, tv stand, laptop (which is actually my sons) and a wardrobe! I have no idea of value but if i was buying them I would probably give £100 for the lot tops!!! imho obviously.. ...I have heard that the couch is exepmt as it doesnt have fire tags on and is unsaleable but that may be incorrect, I have been paying them £40 per month but since approx November 201
  13. I had a visit from a Bristow & Sutor Bailiff this morning regarding outstanding Council Tax. He said he wanted me to come up with £200 by tomorrow morning or he would remove my goods. I said I could not afford that amount and he said that I should borrow it from someone. I politely told him he would not be allowed entry to my home to which his reply was he does not need my permission to enter my house a s the law has changed and it is a criminal offence to obstruct a bailiff and I would be arrested if I did not let him come in to remove goo
  14. Hi all I hope someone can help me ? My better half called me from work yesterday saying she had been in the managers office as he had received a letter from their head office asking if he could confirm her address as the company Bristol and sutor were unable to contact her at this address, she said the letter was asking for payroll number earnings address and confirmation of her working there. The letter states for attachment of earnings. My question is can they do this we have no knowledge whatsoever about what it is for this letter was not even sent t
  15. The Council have forwarded 3 Liability Orders to Bristow and Sutor totalling £1200.00 who have written to me by post and asked me to pay £156.00 per week, this was unaffordable. I went online and said that I would pay £22.00 per week direct to the council to clear the debt, the online form only allowed me to write 250 characters, I did manage to note in there that I would NOT allow the baliffs access into the property. I have sent a letter to the council asking if they will take the debt back and allow me to pay them direct - yet to hear back from them Bristow and Suto
