About Me


  1. A friend of mine had a visit from Marston's Enforcement person and was force to pay £650 on the spot. My friend is foreign and doesn't have a lot of English. (The reason for the fine is long story about not understanding how things work in the UK. She didn't commit the offence but was down as the registered keeper of the vehicle.) 1) He showed his badge and pushed his way into her flat while she was looking at it. 2) He threatened to take away the landlord's goods. He said he needed receipts to prove ownership of the goods if they belonged to the landlord. 3) Unacco
  2. Good morning I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice as I am really not sure what to do. I received a text on my mobile on 10th Feb from an enforcement agent informing me that I owed £1401. At first I was unsure what he meant but after speaking to him I realised it was from a court fine regarding a traffic offence that I appealed but seems to have been rejected. Through the process of the appeal being rejected I moved but had contacted the Court to ask them to let me know at my new address. The baliff informed me that a Distress Warrant had been issued in Oct to my

  6. Hi, I have an outstanding parking fine with Cheshire West and Cheshire Council that I can't afford to pay. I have an earlier one that I also couldn't afford to pay which is now with Jacob's baliffs - so i'm preferring that this later one will be referred to Jacobs soon. I'm currently dealing with Jacobs with regards getting a monthly installment agreement in place, but all the numbers on the council paperwork for the 2nd fine are for automated payment lines etc, and I'm wondering if theres anyone I may be able to speak to regarding getting it sorted, does anyone know if theres anyon

  8. Hello there, I am very new to this site, so please bear with me if I make mistakes along the way... My dilemma is this...I had a bailiff from Rossendales arrive at my house last week demanding a figure of approximately £1900.00 for none payment of Council Tax for the year 2014-2015. Yes, they want the entire year!. He refused a payment of £200 per week and said that he would give me 7 days to find the total amount or he would take goods to the value...and this is where the dilemma deepens...I do not have goods to that "auctionable" value. He would have to even take the cat, it's that

I have got them to put on hold for 28 days, while i check things.. But remember buying house in 2007... and all debts to council where paid off..

  10. So, got home this evening to be told by my wife the council have instructed Bailiffs for unpaid council tax. The background to this is we were claiming housing and council tax benefit from 2010-2013. The council decided we weren't entitled to what they had paid us for the period 2011-13 last year, even though we supplied them with evidence of income each year we claimed and they approved our claim. So, they demanded £25k from us in unpaid council tax and benefits paid. This is in dispute, we were on our arses and entitled IMHO and I sent them over 100 pages of evid
  11. I am writing this for my daughter in law who is 4 months pregnant and not very well. She was fined £65 in September apparantly for no TV licence-she has had no correspondence relating to this from the court-NO Collection order. Yesterday Collectica Baliffs put a note through her door to say they will enter her house and remove her goods-and that the outstanding amount is now £365- Baliffs have put a £300 charge on this-extortionate is not the word. Any advise would be appreciated as to how to proceed as she has no paperwork from the court. Thanks
  12. Hi, I need some advice. I had a PCN that was unpaid and lead to baliffs being assigned. I contacted the courts on Friday 25th October as I had not received some mail regarding the PCN's and they placed a hold on any further action being taken until they could investigate. I was advised that the balifs would be called off until the courts could look into the issue. On Saturday night at approximately 9.30pm I was stopped in my car by police who advised that the car I was driving had been reported as stolen. I showed them proof that the car was mine and tha
  13. Hello all, Wonder if anyone can help, A little while back my account was hacked and my personal details taken - along with a bank account withdrawal This was resolved earlier this year, however today I have had a baliff attend saying that I owe £950 to a payday loan company. Now I have never had a payday loan in my life so know this is linked back. He had court paperwork - I asked for a copy which he said he would get for me- and it was for a previous address which is why I never got it to defend it. So my question is what is my next step? I have spoken to them on the phon
  14. I was fined in the magistrates court for unpaid car tax. I received a fine of £600 (I didn't attend court). As soon as I received the fine, I wrote to the court asking to pay in installments. I didn't hear back so paid my monthly offered amount. I then received a letter from excel baliffs stating they were going to execute a distress warrant..... I researched this and found a distress warrant can only be issued if means testing had taken place (which it clearly hasn't). I then wrote back to the court stating this and to excel to inform them I would be contacting the court. All I go

  16. Hi Last year I rather stupidly took out a log book loan from these guys whilst I was going through a rough patch. I now unfortunately am in the situation of being on benefits hopefully only short term. I have emailed them several times asking for advice on this situation to no avail. During this period my car broke down and was towed to the audi garage for repairs. The bill at present is 2500 which on jsa I cant afford with a further 30 days @10 per day storage charges. The repo men came round today no court order just to repossess I told them the situation with the car and the garage
  17. hi everyone, ive been reading through posts for the past hour or so now, i cannot believe i never realised any of this kind of stuff went on with bailiffs and our own councils! grab a cup of tea and a biscuit as this might go on a while!... im looking for a little advice on a council tax bill i was blissfully unaware that i owed... i moved back in with my parents in december last year and with all the upheaval i simply never thought to tell the council, since then apparently they have been sending council tax demands to my old address which i have obviously not been receivi

  19. I am currently staying with my parents and I have received a hand delivered letter from Jacobs Bailiffs. I am terrified that they will remove my parents goods to pay off my debts. What can I do as I am currently unemployed and receive only JSA each week. The letter says 24 hours notice of another visit by bailiffs. Can they take my parents car?

  21. Hi, i have a question regarding the baliffs right to enter. I have a 23 year old wayward son, who has accumilated £1400.00 of unpaid fines. It would appear that he has given our home address as his home address. He has never lived at this address, nor did he live at our last address. we recieved letters from marstons to start with, i replied, they replied and asked me to send them my council tax bill to prove he didnt live here. i said NO, my council tax bill is none of your business. A few weeks later a knock on the door, 2 guys from marstons
  22. I yesterday recieved a letter from, 'Equita Certified Baliif's, ' saying that they had been instructed by the London Bourough of Lambeth in connection with the warrant of execution granted against you by the Traffic Enforcement Centre at Northampton County Court. I had no idea what this was about as I no longer live in London or have not worked in London for over a year. The letter did not state how much i owed nor did it state any details of the incident which they say I owe money for. I phoned, Equita and spoke to the person and gave them my reference number. He informed me that it was f
  23. Hi I had a visit from Jacobs Baliffs last week concerning two Liability Orders. I sent him away with a flea in his ear, telling him that i will carry on paying the council via their Online Payments. I have a question: Reading the paperwork that he posted through my door I noticed that he has applied all of their charges twice including a levy on my car ( which is declared Sorn at the momment because i cannot afford Road Tax). In other words he has applied the charges on both LO`s even though he only visited once, is that allowed? Thanks for any answers in advance.
  24. Hope some one can help as we are totally unsure what to do next , sorry if this is long winded but its a long story I originally had a fine through Harrogate court which got into arrears of £5 ( this is honestly genuine ) so they sent it to collectica When it went to collectica I owed £170 , Collectica ( then Phillps ) added their fees so it went back up to £265. I agreed payments with them of £20 a fortnight . These were paid fortnightly as agreed . Then however I missed a payment on 24/1/13 due to non receipt of benefits but I did pay the £20 on 31/1/13 leaving a balance to pay of
  25. 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
