  2. Afternoon all, My mum passed away 2 years ago in May 2016, she left a Will and 3 executors in charge of it. Not sure why she didn't have a lot bless her. They started sending bills soon after my mum died despite me telling them the house was empty and we were waiting for probate. Probate was finally granted in October 2017. My brother and I have no intention of selling it. I received a bill of £668 and paid £334 beginning of Jan, I then received a letter to my home which is not in the same city, saying the remaining amount was due by 31 March. I wrote it down and blatantly
  3. My elderly aunt went into residential care last week and I want to give myself time to work out what's best to do with the house. She is totally self funded and there's no need to sell. Her CT was paid up front last April for the whole year. I know the property would be exempt CT for a while but all the wording I find on the subject says 'until the house is sold'. Does anyone know if there's a limit on this? If there is can I just let sleeping dogs lie until next year and pick when I get my free six months - or whatever it is. I don't want to apply for a refund of monies already paid on

  6. Door2Tour.com are what is known as a holiday portal company and only offered holidays they booked through other companies. They Limit their liabilities to only £50 in their hidden Terms and Conditions on their website when they make a mistake leaving the customer with no where to go as they did us as well as never sending the £50 promised!! We booked and paid for a 7 day coach holiday to the rhine valley in Germany last Sept with Crusader coach holidays we thought. However when we rejoined our coach after crossing on the ferry our coach driver announced please put your passports
  7. We bought a property in July 2015, which we then sold in July 2016. It was refurbished in November and December and was empty the rest of the time. A new meter was installed in March. This was because the previous meter was a pre-pay meter, and we wanted to change this to a normal meter just in case there were any issues regarding selling the house with a pre-pay meter. We received a bill in July 2016 for £411.88, relating to March to July 2016, which was clearly incorrect as the property had been empty. I contacted EDF immediately to explain this, and told them it had been empt
  8. Hello insurance specialists, I wonder if you can help me please? I'm executor for my mother and am trying to renew cover for her house. It's been empty since she went into a care home about 3 years ago and we're currently trying to sell it. Probate came through in August. I rang Swinton who have been insuring the house through Towergate and they say nobody wants to quote now, because of the length of time the house has been empty. Does anyone know of other companies who would look at this please? Many thanks, HB

  10. I had a tenant move out of a BTL in April in order to renovate the property. In June I got a council tax bill for a full year. Since the property will be re-let after the renovation (finished in a couple of weeks). I decided to hold off paying until I got a new tenant and knew the exact dates the property was empty so I could apply for a revised bill. Now I have got a summons asking for the full amount plus costs. Can they do this so quickly? Seems a bit overzealous to me? I will probably have a new tenant in there by the time the

  12. Not strictly bailiff stuff but someone who knows council tax law on here might know the answer, it has gone to enforcement by the way costing many times the amount we previously owned even though I tried a reasoned debate about this. We bought a property to refurbish around December of 2013. It was empty for a few weeks before someone moved in. The council issued a bill for the few weeks it was empty and when I called for an explanation they said although they don't charge council tax for an empty period of two months the previous owner had already used that allowance up for that year
  13. Details of the letter received from Hammersmith and Fulham council: "Empty property at address in Hammersmith and Fulham Having send a number of letters by post and by hand, over the last 6-months, I am writing one last letter in order to try to get a response. Should I fail to be contacted by anybody with an interest in the above property by 30 April 2014, my next course of action will be to serve a Notice of intended Entry (Local Government - Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976. In bold red writing. Should this Notice also be ignored, I would then need to employ a lock
  14. Hi All After receiving an MMF 'Notification of legal action' threato'gram a few weeks ago (the one where they mention going to prison), that I have duly ignored. I have now received a 1 line email yesterday, entitled '5 day Notice before action' which states: Unless you call MMF in 5 days,a Court Claim will be issued and then enforced by Bailiffs or Attachment of Earnings on your employer.0800 9961103 Ref:M****** Do you think they are still puffing out their chests or should I now start to worry? Thanks Simon
  15. We had a business and premises which has a one bedroom flat above. We had to close the shop last year basically due to lack of trade. We used to rent the flat out but since the bank have been threatening repossession of the premises the flat has been empty. We told the council that the flat was empty and unfurnished and they gave us a 3 month exception. This has now ended and they want us to pay £110/month. We are already in a debt management plan and really struggling to settle the debts we already have. Does anyone know if there is anyway we could get the exception extended or if the c
  16. Hi to all I have been legally parking my taxed,mot'd and insured vehicle on a public road which is a cul de sac as it has public access to a small wood where I walk my dog. The residents (mostly retired people) have a dislike of people parking on their street I've even suffered abuse shouted even though I'm simply going about my law abiding business and there is public access at the end of it and the vehicles are legally parked and not restricting their access in any way. Today I noticed new signs have been installed saying "ROAD USE HOUSEHOLDERS ONLY" they appear to be l
