  2. Hello, a couple of days ago I had two HCEOs barge into our home around 7am demanding money or they would be removing goods. Not having experienced anything like this before I just panicked and paid whatever they said. I've just found this forum and have been reading the posts here. From some of these earlier posts, it appears that this firm of HCEOs are well known for charging all the fees in one go which they did to me as well. Does anyone here have any advice or suggestions as to the strength of my case? This is what happened:- First off, I was aware of the d
  3. Hi and firstly thank you for this forum it is extremely helpful. My Dilema. South East water debt equalling £2000 went to court enforcement services March 2017. I arranged a payment plan for the 16th of each month of £20 and have paid every month. This month I paid on the 19th due to a payment taking time to get to me and thought all was ok as the online payment went through fine. This morning 2 HCEO officers called and clamped our car. I will fill you in on the car, last month on the 28th I sold my car to my Limited company as it was costing too much to run it so thou
  4. Hi Guys..My first post and i need some advice please... I've attained judgement, elevated to High Court and entered agreement with The Sheriffs. The HCEO called at the LTD companies address to collect payment, although i instructed them to go to the actual place where the work was/is carried out and where i have viewed lots of assets. They then called at the "asset address" some two weeks late, giving the defendant plenty of time to move/relocate/hide/change ownership of the assets. Not much of a surprise that there were no assets at the second address.... Where sh
  5. Hi, I'm after some advice please. We recently had a visit from the HCEO following an unpaid Water debt. In our panic (at 7am with kids in the house) we paid the full amount - which was double the actual bill. We just wanted them out of the house ASAP. Since then I have asked for a breakdown of fees as I felt they had charged us too much. Below is the breakdown Description Amount Writ amount £1,515.21 Interest on Writ amount (@8%) from date of Writ to date of paid in full £0.00 Compliance Fee £90.00 Enforcement Stage 1 Fee £228.00 7.5% Fee of
  6. Hi all I have today received a letter and discovered that my 20 year old son has debts totaling nearly £2000 which Marston say are for unpaid fines for not paying for several train fares after getting caught with no ticket. The letter says their client is "HMCTS Manchester". I called Marston and they say they will attend my home tonight and unless I can prove with receipts items are not mine they will take them as my son's and I will have 28 days to prove they are mine to get them back. My son lives at home and has nothing and all items such as TV etc are mine and not his. How
  7. Hi - I need some help quite badly. I had a bad mental breakdown around a year ago and didn't pay some private parking fines. They were for outside my mothers house whilst she was helping me. I didn't get letters as I was away from home getting help. I don't want to go into this further - but I'm not fully recovered. I got a call on Monday morning from my Mother in tears. Bailiffs had come and barged their way into her home. They asked her to get ID and then pushed in. They have then threatened to take all HER stuff. They have said if they cannot prove it's h
  8. Hi everyone, I'm looking for some advice please. To cut a long story short my husband died 3 years ago. He left me with a business which had an enormous amount of debt and I have been dealing with those since (it has now ceased trading) and continue to do so, it has not been an easy 3 years. I am at my wits end with a personal creditor in relation to my husbands funeral costs which given the situation seems ironic as most of the other creditors have agreed reasonable plans (or i would have been forced to go bankrupt) but these just wont budge. The debt began as £2
  9. Hi Has anyone known of HCEO's or Debt Collection Agencies using DHL or other Couriers to confirm address? (if you sign for it they know you are there). I have a had a card through the door, I am not expecting anything and I have been incredibly careful about not giving out my address or using credit ref agencies. I was homeless for a long time and only recently housed due to damage in RTA, I have mental health issues. I lost everything I had when I became homeless except a 20 year old car worth £500 if I am lucky. My home has items from freecycle and a computer lent by
  10. Hi All Summary: - I've had an agreement set up for 12 months with no issues from a debt. - Visited on 3rd August 2016 while on holiday by a HCEO, no 7 day warning in writing. Asked confidential questions to my neighbour - Visited again last Friday 12th at 06:45 am, again no 7 day warning in writing - He showed no ID, I let him in to stop any embarrassment and to genuinely sort out some confusion as a payment plan has been in place for over 12 months with no issues. - Outstanding amount before entry was £358 (oringal writ amount £2305.56), he demanded £14
  11. Hi all. I had a business that has ceased trading as it didn't go as well as I'd hoped and I had a debt with a mobile provider. Cut a long story short, the debt was for £3400 and it has been passed to a HCEO. I have found out that it went to court and a ccj was issued by default which has now been transferred to HCEO. The business was registered at my home address just for administration purposes and there are no assets or anything to do with the business at my address. Can the HCEO force his way I to my house and if so can he take my personal belongings. I have read that I have
  12. Hi All, Had a recent bereavement in the family and didn't know a CCJ was entered by a courier form for my business. Got a call saying come to premises or will call a locksmith and more £ will be charged. Met HCEO and showed him we were flooded during Boxing Day and going to be a hard graft ahead. The CCJ was for £1204.74 - their paperwork is nearly £2300, and if sums unpaid etc, and further action including sale or disposal stage will make it near £3100. Advised got no help and unable to pay in one go, he looked around - showed me no ID and didn't give m
  13. Hi There, After some advice please. My wife had an outstanding debt of £165 which was sent to Marstons. It is now at £240. She received a letter mid Dec stating she had 14 days to make payment or set up an arrangement. As she works in the theatre industry and it was Panto season it completely slipped her mind to pay it. I have contacted Marstons today asking if I can make payment on 15th Jan (initially I asked if the debt could be split over 2 months which they refused). They have advised me that they can not stop any enforcement action until the debt is paid (even though I have
  14. Just saw this on youtube. HCEO with High Court Writ Tells the video poster that if he refuses to allow him access then he will be arrested for obstruction! Suggest this guy needs serious retraining. Got to love the copper too "well... your known to the Police...probably" And erm, are the Police allowed to use the PNC to check identities of people for HCEO's? Misuse of the PNC surely. The victim, who isn't the person the HCEO was after seriously needs to do some formal complaints, and I have advised him to do so. Surely a criminal offence has been committe
  15. Am I right in thinking that the HCEO employ there own bailiffs and there are also independent bailiff companies and are they part of the HCEO ?
  16. Hi, im sorry this is a rather long story but i really need some legal advice... my husband had a tenancy in his ltd co name with a pub company. when he passed away 2 years ago the pub co regional manager asked if i would continue with the pubs, he had another one at the time with them. Both pubs were struggling and i told them i wasnt sure. They assured me of financial and business support. Obviously they didnt want two closed pubs on their hands and i felt a responsibility to my husband to keep them. i struggled to manage both pubs without my husb
  17. Hi All, I was running my own limited company when it fell on bad times and I ceased trading in January 2015. I only had one creditor which was Howdens Joinery for about 2k. Today my wife opened the door to a HCEO from Equita asking to speak to me regarding a business debt that I am liable for. My wife explained to him that I no longer trade and that the registered business address was not my home address and also that I had sent a request to companies house to close the business down. I have no business assets and no business premises. He left a letter
  18. Hi all. I've received a Notice of Enforcement from Marstons for a recent CCJ for my unpaid water bill. I was out of work for a while, recently back in full time work and trying to pull my head out of the sand. The notice states that if I don't pay or make a payment arrangement by 23rd June an officer will call. I tried calling the water company (United Utilities) first, and they referred me straight to Marstons. I called Marstons, made an offer to pay, first instalment on the 25th when I get paid and they have advised that an officer will still need to visit "to make sure that I c
  19. Could anyone please help: I need an URGENT Stay of Execution of a Writ as HCEO’s are about to attend my home and I believe this to be in error. It is unclear on which form we apply for this, N244 or N245? And therefore it is also unclear as to the cost of this application. A Consent Order was granted to a Claimant as we were trying to do the right thing and also to not go to court. We got caught out as our limited company was dissolve by CH without our knowledge. So for a few weeks we traded as non-limited (but didn't know) so as soon as we found out the business ended.
  20. Hello All, I have been reading through this Forum as of yesterday trying to get as much information as possible, and its been a fantastic help. But I now direct help if that is possible. I will try to keep this factual, and short. Received an enforcement letter yesterday from 'Burlington Group' (based in camberly) is for a sum of £3746.75 plus interest of £1.64, compliance stage fee £90, totalling £3838.39. This 'writ of control' was issued on 23rd April 2015. However the original judgment was on 23rd Dec 2010. I was aware of this judgment nearly 5 years ago
  21. we have beaten an hceo three times now. he was acting outside the law and we knew it. everyone needs to learn their rights - we have a lot we can do. we don't have to accept this bullying behaviour. if you ask the hceo to leave your property and he refuses - is he not then trespassing/aggravated trespass if he gets angry etc. ours ran off when we stood up to him. haven't seen him since and all his fees have been removed! now in formal complaint about him. apply for a stay at court if need be - you just don't have to deal with these cret
  22. I had a visit from a HCEO today in relation to a high court writ for unpaid water bill totalling £1800. After explaining I was attempting to sort finances in order to apply for bankruptcy and that I had no other money or assets, he said if he could enter the house and see that i did not have enough goods to enable the debt and charges to be paid, he would report that back to the creditor and they would be unlikely to attempt to control the goods for sale. I was cagey about this to say the least. I said i was unwilling to let him in for obvious reasons. He said that if he w
  23. Hi all, I hope you can help with situation that I find myself in within the last 48 hours and of course I can try and support with what I have learnt in recent days if it helps. Sorry for the long mail! I had a call from HCEO on Tuesday identifying himself and asking if I knew a particular person. He caught me on the back foot and I did not know the name. He proceeded by saying next steps would be taken, I had no idea what he was talking about, the name and what next steps meant even though I asked several times. I immediately googled the name and it is someo
  24. I think I know what I am doing but just need it confirming. I have a CCJ against me for £1007 issued 9/9/14 Yesterday I received a letter from a HCEO it says Sum Outstanding £1118.75 Interest £3.09 Compliance Stage Fee £90 Total Sum £1211.84 I am going to my nearest County Court that deals with High Court Matters. It is my intention to make an application for a stay of execution (N244) and also an application for a variation of the order as it was a forthwith judgement. Just to murk the waters a little, I rec
  25. I lost an appeal in November last year and costs were applied £750 - I appealed and this hearing was heard within another hearing Civil Case on Jan 4th 2014 - The Judge awarded the claimant £7,123 - off which £5,000 of this was costs. He mentioned something about only allowing certain sum of costs. I could not pay - single parent on benefits and offered £5 a month - this was refused so I applied for a redetermination hearing which was heard in March 2014. I informed Judge I had a caravan old tower 1997 that I could sell worth about 2k. Advertised on 8 sit
