  1. I left a rental property in January '15. Subsequently, I had a CCJ issued in April 15 (to the previous address so not defended) for£1600 (HBOS). Bailiffs attended the previous address in Dec '15. I have contacted Northampton to find out who issued the CCJ but not heard back yet. For how long is the warrant live? I'm seeing 1 year in some places? Is it normal for warrants to be re-issued to new addresses (in this case 2 years later)? The CCJ is only coming up to 3 years. There's no real point in Bailiffs attending as I have no property (everything I own can
  2. have a unpaid debt with anglian water. ccj granted march 2013 for a debt of £1,341,98. agreed with them to pay debt off at £5 per month. after a financial income check incomings outgoings. we applied to pay this debt by direct debit payment. they said it could not be done. over the period of time we reduced this debt to about £300. for some reason they cancelled the agreement and enforced this with the high court enforcement group who visited me today. informing me they are collecting a debt of £2,041.15 for anglian water. rather annoyed to find that anglian
  3. Hi I received a parking ticket in May for parking infront of a dropped kerb adjacent to a footway I was not parked next to a drop kerb nor is there a footway. I appealed the ticket and it was rejected on the basis I was blocking access (I wasn't). The enforcement officer took about 15 photos This happened in May of this year In the council's response I vaguely recall them stating they would send me info on how to appeal to the adjudicator which I intended to do. I can no longer find this response and am unsure if it was electronic or printed. I am certain I never re
  4. Hi everyone I use a courier company, i will call "TPC", who in turn use DPD. I have to say on the whole the past few years has been event free but a few months ago we sent a 3D printer to someone to use and it was smashed up really badly. The recipient took photos and has emailed us stating the damage was beyond dropping in his view and we have loads of photos of the box damaged etc. I reported the issue immediately and TPC were originally very sympathetic etc. I have to say I was shocked at the damage, you would have had to try really hard to do what they did. As the client
  5. Hi all, I am new to this site so please forgive me if I have posted in the wrong place. I have been fined £1200 by a magistrates court around 2 months ago. At the time I was not able to pay and was instructed by my solicitor to state that I could pay in instalments once I had an income to avoid a harsher punishment by the judge who was not in the best of moods on the day. I was advised by my solicitor and court staff to contact the collections department for fines to offer an amount I could pay monthly, every offer I ever made was refused for a payment plan but they kept t
  6. My daughter has a historical council tax debt, which according to the bailiff Grencar is currently standing at around £3500, however that figure includes their various fees. I only became aware of this problem when my daughter broke down in tears about 18 months ago, having got her finances into a dreadful mess and was threatened with eviction by her landlord. she had various debts at the time which we have managed to sort out, however the council tax debt with Grencar continues to haunt her. They had been demanding payments of no less than £200 and whenever they
  7. I have received a notice of enforcement to my address for my stepdaughter, who is staying with us temporarily she owes eon just short of £1000 from her previous address, there are no dates on the notice about dates or when is it from . I am slightly concerned about bailiffs knocking on my door and trying to seize belongings i am also shocked by the enormous fees they add on at different stages. She is a jobless student at the moment , so has no way of paying this bill either. any advice please?
  8. Wondering if one of the experienced users on here can help here with this one? Yesterday afternoon I found my car clamped by Marstons Bailiffs - no paperwork whatsoever only a scribble and phone number so I phoned them to find out that apparently I failed to pay the congestion charge in November last year but know nothing about it as they send all paperwork to a previous address even though I updated my address with the DVLA in 2017!!! Then the bailiff stopped answering any of calls when I tried to ask her about PCN information etc and the TEC phonelines were not being answered yest
  9. Hi, would appreciate any advice regarding the situation of a relative who is a single Mother. She had an outstanding housing benefit overpayment which was being repaid monthly over a payment plan for the last few years. At the beginning of this year the council got in touch to say that they needed to increase the amount paid each month; following a review of her income and expenditure a significantly higher amount was agreed to be paid which she has paid without fail. The council also stated that they would review the payment plan after 3 months, however they sent a letter 4 months l
  10. Hi all, I am about t take over the management of a house that has multiple tenants in it. The previous manager of the premises also lived in the house. He has disapeared with all of the tenants rents, paid none of it to the landlord and we are now getting demands from 'collect services' on behalf of reading council for unpaid parking fines. The fine is for £408 and they are talking about the using 'the taking of goods (fees) regulation 2014 to take goods from the house, none of which is owned by the previous property manager. SO a couple of questions 1. Can they demand access? 2.
  11. Good afternoon, or is it? I returned home this afternoon to find a card small card posted through my door, from county court bailiff. I was very surprised, really, and contacted the number straight away. The bailiff answered the phone, seemed pleasant enough, and explained that the visit was in relation to a debt with Cabot finance, outstanding CCJ. He said he couldn't return today, due to having to be at a eviction! He also complained about being the only county court bailiff in the area. He said he might be able to return tomorrow, and he has some paper work for
  12. Hi, I am in the process of getting payment from my ex boss through the small claims court. I have received judgement from the courts and would like to make a warrant of execution. However, the only addresses I have for him are his parents house (where he used to live) and the apartment block he now lives in. But unfortunately I don't have his flat number. Would I be able to just give the apartment block and hope that the bailiffs would be able to get his flat number from the people on reception at the building or not? Thanks!
  13. Good Morning, I'm hoping for some advise on here please. I have a liability order with Rossendales for £814 and also signed a WPO/ CGA in January 2018 to agree to a payment plan of £200 per month. Originally, the amount was around £1300. I missed a payment on this and the agent over the phone told me I had to increase this amount to £300 per month or they can't help and would go to an enforcement officer.I agreed (as had no choice) on 1st June I missed the £300 payment. Today, I have a letter from Rossendales to say that no extension/ plan will be agreed and full pay
  14. Are PCNs subject to the 6 years (england) statute barred law anyone know?
  15. Hi. Just need a quick advice. I got a parking ticket long time ago which I became aware of when Equita got in touch. I was surprised and agreed to a payment plan of £75 followed by two payments of £101.50. Unfortunately I am between jobs and I failed to do last payment on 1st May. Additionally I had my phone broken for few days. I got it back on today after 3pm to find an sms saying bailiff is schedulded to visit me today at 8pm. So all 4 hours notice. I called back the number and asked for a time till mid next week to pay it off but ofcourse it was a no go. I sai

  17. This very recent Local Government Ombudsman's decision (released 10 days ago) is another one of importance. In this particular case, a motorist had incurred a penalty charge notice from London Borough of Haringey for wrongful parking. As the contravention was for parking as opposed to a CCTV contravention, she received a Penalty Charge Notice on her car advising that the charge was £130 but if she made payment within 14 days, she would be entitled to a 50% discount bringing the penalty down to £65. She told the council that she could not pay and offered to clear the debt over a

  19. On the face of it, this case appears to be very worrying. A lot is dependent upon what correspondence you had previously received from your council. BUT... If you sent an income and expenditure breakdown to them BEFORE they engaged bailiffs then you should have been considered for an attachment order. Simply not having sufficient income is no excuse for the council to bulldoze on with bailiffs. As others have alluded to, you should now write to the council and raise the point regarding their hasty decision to use bailiffs as opposed to the more logical option of an attachment.
  20. Hello lovely people Let me quickly explain what is my situation like. About a year ago I got fined for littering (75 quids), that fine has risen to the stage of notice of enforcement when I have started to dealing with it. After contacting either collectica and marston (by sending my budget and calling them),a payment plan was refused. Couple of days ago I found final notice saying i need to contact the bailiff on number provided, I did so but just to be told that full payment need to be made today to avoid further charges and visits. When i was at work yesterda
  21. My son is 24 years old and is living at home. He is not working or claiming and has nothing of any value. His old mobile company has a CCJ against him and he has received a court letter today to say they are sending bailiffs in 5 days time. I am really worried that they will try to take our things and I dont know how to stop them. He really has nothing but his clothing. He has a diagnosis of ADHD and Dyslexia and clearly has social anxiety issues. He has a degree and worked for 18 months after finishing it but was so badly treated by his employer that he resigned,
  22. On the 1st of November at around 8am i was visited by two bailiffs from marstons for two unpaid parking tickets which came to about £800. They originally came for someone else at the address while there they saw on their ipad my fines and asked me to pay. This was all on the door when i refused to pay they told me they will go into my house (Its my mums house) and start removal of goods i informed them they cant come into the house and seeing as i am standing on the doorstep he cant come in little did i know and just pushed past me while i tried to push him away he
  23. Hey there guys..... I hope im posting in the right place and that maybe somebody can help me, im kinda going out my mind now. I wont bore you with a full history but i will sumarize briefly, January 2017 my wife and I where taken to court for non payment of council tax, we was given a liability order and it was passed on to rundles enforcement agency for collection of payment. We made a payment agreement with them but due to being made homeless and a situation beyond out control we never kept up with the payment. In November 2017 rundles made contact again by sending
  24. This is a useful High Court judgment and one that should serve as a reminder to anyone considering litigation, that an error by an enforcement agent is not automatically trespass and most importantly, that any claims for loss/damages etc must be proved to arise directly from the agents misconduct -which very often will be difficult to prove. There is also the matter of the need to provide evidence to support any claims (something that was seriously lacking in this case). Background to claim: On 12th March 2015, a writ of control was issued against Mr Miller for
