  2. Hi all, I hope you can help. I am a tenant in a building of around 20 studio flats which was a former commercial premises. A property management company bought the building with the intention of applying for planning permission to convert it into a hotel in 2/3 years.

  6. I recently sent my phone to back to HTC for a repair under warranty as for the last 3 months I have had issues which were as if i was repeatedly and rapidly pressing all of the buttons at once, the screen was going crazy and i was unable to make a phone call or send a text message. The day after the phone was collected I received an emailed quote from HTC demanding nearly £150 to repair the phone. Naturally I called them to find out why I would have to pay this charge and understand why it wasnt covered by the warranty. I was told that the phone had a known hardware fault known to
  7. Hi there, Just looking for some advice of where we may be able to go with this. A bailiff from Marston Group, Mr Harvey, called at my house on Saturday in regards to having the car untaxed on 3 occassions, 2 in 2011 and once 2010. He said he had a distress warrant. the list of what he showed had 5 incidents on there, 2 of which seemed to be duplicated as the same date was shown. They want £1500.0 from us. Now to be honest, when the incidents occured I was in a bit of a state and was hiding debt letters from my partner. I can't remember what came through and what I hid. I h
  8. In brief, late paying a magistrates fine. Contacted fines office got the brush off, " nothing we can do mate notice of distress issued you must deal with the bailiffs ( Philips ). Go to local court , same story you cannot go in front of a Magistrate to explain situation as Distress notice issued. Give the fines office a ring see what they can do ! So I am at the mercy of Philips, if I do not agree to their terms I am snookered. They could pluck any figure out of the air for me to pay back monthly. If I am not happy do I accept their terms

I have had a hand delivered letter from a bailiff stating that the have called to execute a warrant issued by Northampton COunty Court They claim to be authorized by a court under the enforcement of road traffic debts (certified bailiffs) Regulations 1993 (Amendments 2003) To remove our vehicle/household effects to satisfy an unpaid penalty charge notice due to the council.

  10. Hi, We issued a warrant of distress against a tenant. The bailiffs did not remove any goods nor recover any of the debt, and now claim that we owe them the fees for two attendance & levy costs of £1100 + VAT. Are we liable to pay their fees? They are threatening to issue Court proceedings to recover their costs. Thank you.

  12. THIS HAS TO BE DEALT WITH AND I CALL ON EVERYONE READING THIS TO HELP BRING THESE PEOPLE TO JUSTICE AND MY GOD I WILL ONE WAY OR THE OTHER - ARGHHHH!!! Hello Everybody, I had an appeal application in place regarding an unfair trial I received for a conviction for "Failure to Provide Driver Details." relating toa £60 speeding fine ( I was NOT driving the vehicle at the time and I DID infact provide the drivers details. And in the trial the onus was put on me to prove my innocence rather than the CPS to prove my guilt ) However this is not relevant to the reason I am writing here
  13. Hi, Please help! Yesterday afternoon, I had a visit from a Mr. xxxxx from Marston Group. I was not in at the time and he put a letter through my door containing a final notice and a distress warrant issued by *** Magistrates Court. I had never heard of them and was unaware of any debt, so I googled them and found your website. Hence this message. I have since found out by ringing the court that it in relation to an offence for which I was ordered to pay £85 costs and had to now deal with Marstons directly. This morning, I attempted to phone Mr. xxxxx on the mobile num
  14. The history Four years ago I received a pcn for a bus lane and when moving through the PATAS procedure, the local authority - Richmond - confirmed a 'discretionary' penalty distance of 10m existed at the end of the lane(s), which I had apparently violated by almost 4metres - which turned out to be untrue after revisiting and measurements/photos. On the day of the hearing Richmond failed to offer evidence to the contrary, actually not bothering to turn up at all. So, case dismissed and a lost day of work, plus another day in travel and compiling . The adjudicator said at the time that if I

  16. Hi all, Let me give you a brief overview. May 2010 - I took my car to Hull as a car dealer was interested in buying and I took it over for him to look round and test drive - 2-3 weeks later 'speeding ticket' through the post. I informed them I wasn't driving and could only provide Name of the guy (i can't even remember that now, it was that long ago). The Police person who I was communicating with said that he will put in file that I refused/witheld the info for the courts - I told him that he was committing an offence for doing such a thing and I informed him this was the
  17. Hi Guys, I hope someone can help. I will be as clear as I can - the long and short of it is that I appealed a parking ticket as I was unaware that I had one until the baliffs came calling. All paperwork was sent to my old address so I did not get the opportunity to sort it out. The council dont want to know and I had a hearing at my local court to which they threw my appeal out. The baliffs are demanding £497 (for a £25 ticket) - I have written a letter to the baliff company as advised on one of the forums and stated that guidelines state that where the bali
  18. I have a HUGE story regarding npower and our bills but in short..... They keep threatening they are going to apply for a warrant of entry, can anyone that has perhaps dealt with this please tell me the process and how long it takes etc Thanks
  19. Hi everyone, I was wondering if i could get some advise with regards to British Gas. On the 9th of January British Gas applied for a warrant to put a pre payment gas metre into my property for an old gas bill. The bill itself was 523.00. I infromed british gas that i could pay 200.00 towards the debt, which i have and pay the outstanding amount when i get paid on the 25th of january. I have now recieved a letter this morning saying that they are going to excute the warrant on the 23rd of january and fit a pre payment metre. I have since spoken to them to tell them i get paid on the 25
  20. Guys, This thread is slightly different from another on here relating to British Gas seeking a warrant of entry for non-payment of a bill, so please bare with me... About 2 weeks ago I received a letter from BG informing me that £577 remained unpaid from my last bill and that they would be seeking a warrant of entry on 8th January 2013 from the local court. This would allow them legal access on 16th January to either disconnect my electricity supply or fit a pre-payment meter (the latter being the most likely course of action, obviously). No dispute over the amount - I owe it. I
  21. Hi, I need some help please, this is quite involved but I will start at the beginning. On Tuesday 20th at 06-50 I awoke to see someone outside on my drive fiddling with my car, I got up and went outside to find it clamped and faced by a very aggressive bailiff from Marston Group in respect of a debt for my son, who does not live at our address and for whom I cannot recall seeing any previous communication or correspondence in respect of this matter. He advised that he had a distress warrant and openly acknowledged that althoughI was not the named person (as he knew tha
  22. Several weeks ago I received a visit from a man form Rossendales explaining that we had an oustanding Council Tax bill that had been passed on to them and they had a Magistrates Order to recoup the money. I agreed to send an income and expenditure breakdown and come to an agreement over paying it in installments. I filled this in and sent it back. Today a man appeared on my doorstep with a piece of paper explaining that I hadnt kept to the deal, and he was here with the van. He told me I have to pay over 1200 pounds or he will be back with the van and the police. I
  23. Hi all, This is my first post so please bare with me. Had a visit on monday from a rossenadales bailif at my business adress which is a limited company, the ccj was issued to myself at my home adress and relates to a debt when i was a sole trader prior to starting my above limited company. Rossendales have not caught me in at home and have traced me to my new business adress, and have now put my ltd company adress onto their paperwork, but i have had no notification of this from the court. Can they do this???? Thanks all for your help
  24. I had a parking ticket from the London Borough of Kingston unfairly. I now have a company called Collect Services sending Bailiffs to my house. I asked for an execution warrant. The copy they sent me does not have a stamp from the courts. Can anyone advise me if this warrant is valid since I have never been in this position ? May also add that I did not receive a CCJ from the courts since the case was thrown out because the Council did not have a statement from me.
  25. Hi, Thought this might be a good place to seek advice, I am trying to help a friend. British gas have been granted a Warrant of Entry to fit a pre-payment meter. We want to try and stop fitting of said meter as we believe we have a strong argument. My friend was abroad when they were granted the warrant in the County Magistrates and hence was unable to attend the hearing to argue why the meter should not be fitted (various reasons, but main reason is because meter is outside and she is a disabled person living alone). We rang the Court for some advice in hope there is a f
