  1. Hello all I have had an ongoing issue with Parking Eye and them issuing 2 Parking Charge Notices for me parking in a hospital where I work. The car park is free for all to use but visitor and patient parking is limited to 4 hours, for one reason and another I occasionally park in visitor spaces but usually move my car before the 4 hours is up - but with ANPR technology I have been caught short a couple of times. I have been down the usual routes, appealed - rejected by Parking Eye with no reasons mentioned. appealed to POPLA, ignored my arguments and sai
  2. I received a phone call today from my previous council, the gentleman said he called me with regards to my very old address dating back to 1999-2004. I was a student then and found the flat through a normal Estate Agents, signed the Tenancy Agreement and moved in. Today, 2017, four children later I get a phone call from the council enforcement team informing me that I owe over £4000.00 in BUSINESS RATES. I was never informed that it was an "office" I was living in and to my total amazement they even took to me to court and I have a liability order from 2005.
  3. Good morning, Not sure where to start with this one, but i have 2 outstanding Liability order for council tax from 10 years ago (when i was 18 years old). I was only aware these orders even existed until earlier this year when i received a letter from Said Council saying they had traced me to the address where i was living at the time and had been for 8years..... I contacted the council asking for a the amounts, legal costs & period in which they had been charged for, They sent me this in writing in May of this year. As i was a single parent at the ti
  4. Local Authorities are a law to themselves and this is especially true when you consider the way Magistrates' Courts are exploited by councils for rubber stamping thousands of liability orders in a process which typically takes up less than an hour of courtroom time. It's usual for councils to be awarded hundreds of thousands of pounds costs in respect of each court application. Unlike typical hearings where Judges determine the level (if any); councils tell the Justices Clerk in advance how much Magistrates should award. This is what happens in reality but wonder if what they do is
  5. seeking advice on what to do...Hounslow council have written to me three times now in the last couple of weeks the most recent letter stating I owe them five months council tax from 1994-95. This is from nineteen years ago and this is the first I am hearing about it. Yes I did live at that address for a short period of time back then. I was newly married with a baby and a friend of my husbands let us rent his house while we got on our feet. If I remember correctly it was a somewhat loose arrangement without an official tenancy agreement or anything. When we moved from this house we were not aw
  6. Hi everyone, I hope someone can help with a few questions! A few days ago I had a letter posted through the door from Ross and Roberts bailiffs. I phoned the bailiff and he told me it was for unpaid council tax from my previous address (I must have missed payments without realising), some of which dated from after I had already left the house and moved to my new address. I told the bailiff that I would not pay without speaking to the council first, so the next day I called the council and they told me I can appeal in writing. They said they didn't have a reco
  7. Hi all, I have been in the wrong council tax band, for many years and it has now been corrected. Whilst being in the wrong band, I received ,summons and liability orders, for which I now know were for the wrong amounts. Can the council, still claim that they were right in doing this, as I did owe an amount, but not the amount I actually did owe due to being on the wrong band. After the banding was amended, it cleared all the arrears that I owed at present, and all other years. I would appreciate any help, regarding this. Thanks.
  8. If this post serves no other purpose, it may at least include some useful links It seems Local Authorities, for their own advantage, are selectively implementing the law under the 1992 Council Tax regulations. Council's recovery policies reveal how they're circumventing regulations and using the threat of a Liability Order as bargaining power to negotiate take-up of Direct Debit. After recovery action has commenced, it seems council tax payers who agree terms laid down by their respective councils are having recovery action reversed. Concessions differ from one authority to another b
  9. Got a note through the door from Equita Bailiffs for a council tax liability order. Letter reads as follows: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- My name & address - printed on the letter Date - handwritten Time - handwritten Delivered By Hand BAILIFF REMOVAL Payment due in full - 24 hours I have attended today with the intention of removing your goods and chattels as are necessary to discharge the outstanding Council Tax Liabi
  10. Hello People, Your help would be greatly appreciated and is URGENTLY needed. I recently found out my only bank account has been frozen using an Interim Thrid Part Debt Order obtained by the CSA. The relates to a liability order I know nothing about and had no notice or summons provided to me until I got a letter from my bank. I am currently not working and or not claiming any benefits since I was banned for driving under the New Drivers Act for not completing a £60 speeding fine. I have been writing for nearly a year to the CSA trying to get them to correct their assessment with
  11. A bailiff (Jacob's) came earlier while I was out and left a letter stating they intend to seize goods tomorrow re: a Liability Order issued by the Magistrates Court due to Council Tax arrears. What can I do to stop them accessing my home? I am in receipt of £50 a week Working Tax Credits and have no other income at present (registered S/E). If I had money to pay my arrears, I would, but I don't. I'm not even going to get started on the fact a single person should have a greater reduction than at present, or that Council Tax even exists... Thanks in advance.
  12. long story edited highlights ... My mother claimed income support and council tax benefit in March 2010. The IS was turned down so appealed and reclaimed IS which was successful on second claim. The CTB was paid from when IS was successful. The IS appeal was successful and payments back dated to March. Council will not backdate council tax even though IS was received for that period. They have now issued summons for CT to obtain a liability order with the view to make deductions from earning / benefit or instruct bailiffs. Council has been phoned and the benefit
  13. Hi all, I'm afraid it's another case of Bailiff blues.... I have recently fallen foul of the Bailiffs for non payment of business rates on my little office. My girlfriend and i took the space 4 yrs ago and though for most of that time there has been a suspension of rates due to the rateable value (below 2600) there was a portion that we are liable for in the first year that we took the space. We were a bit naive in thinking we wouldn't be asked for it as the Building is a big rambling victorian rabbit warren of a factory building. Just before Christmas we received a s
  14. Today my parents received a letter at their London address (where i dont live since Feb 2011) regarding council tax which i owed of £1003.81 for a Birmingham address. I had a monthly direct debit set-up for some reason ended up failing and being removed, since then this is the first time i have heard from Equita. The letter is under my wife's and my name she is out of work since Feb 2011 til present and i have just started last week. None of us have the funds to pay the amount. The letter posted THROUGH THE DOOR on the 10th Oct 2011 stated: "Payment due in full in 24 hours.....i hav
  15. Hello, my mum have received a letter from Newlyn bailiffs saying that they have liability order to seize and distrain our possesions. My mum is a single parent and she has me(15 year old son) and at the moment she is pregnant with another child. Me and my mum owe around £1200 to council, and as soon as we received the letter, we've paid £60 to them. These may seem like a small money, but at the moment £60 for us seems like a fortune of money. My mum is worried about her paintings being collected by baliffs, she has a lot of painting that belong to her dad and they cos
  16. Hi & can anyone help 07-2006 Southampton City Council informed me of a liability order from Southampton magistrates granted 11-04 re 13 months council tax - from 2003-4 I hadn't stayed 13 months, but arranged to pay £12 per month from 2007 to late last year my payments flowed by post, with Southampton Local Taxation services sending me a receipt ~[later payment slips] in response to each installment then the payment slips stopped, late last year, [about half the principle paid off] I paraphrase "Oi" says I "make with the receipts" in case it was a mistake or whatever
