  1. Hi, hope someone can help. This is in regards of a 'stayed' case from August 2016 Via the County Court Business Centre. Cabot/Restons At the time I requested documents those being: 1. Agreement/Contract 2. Default Notice 3. Assignment These never arrived within the period of 12 days, then a further 30 days. I went on to deliver my defence and ultimately the case was 'Stayed' Present day: I have just received a photocopy of a credit agreement with spreadsheet statements from Cabot who now which to 'discuss the options available for this account.' My initial concern is the photocopy of the agreement, in that it has clearly had something stuck over part of the section 'YOUR SIGNATURE REQUIRED' with what clearly looks like a faxed signature of who ever was signing off on the agreement, although I am unsure if this is normal practice? Also the spreadsheet is very basic with no opening balance/closing balance or written indication to the amount of initial credit and whether this was increased/decreased over time during the period of the agreement? Per my original request during court proceedings they have not supplied 'Default Notice', 'Assignment', although I'm sure this would be a request I would make again should the 'Stay' get lifted and it goes back to court. Any help in this matter would be most appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Hi hoping someone can help/advise, I received a CCJ for the amount of £2802.71 for a credit card. England based. I can't pay this and on the form it does not tell me how I can pay this off in instalments. I have lots of debt which I am dealing with but this one slipped through, my fault totally. Any advice on how I should proceed would be much appreciated. Many thanks.
  3. I have an appointment tomorrow morning at 9am,(universal credit) which I had changed to because my last one was cancelled for some reason. I do casual work here and there I got a text a few mins ago reminding me that I have training (counter terrorism training) at 9:30am - noon at my casual job, I completely forgot but if I phone up UC now they may refuse or sanction me. Should I call up now or in morning?
  4. Please forgive me if I'm going over old ground and the info I seek is already out there but I'm very distressed and up against time. I have an outstanding debt to a private members club which despite my disputing the charges ( i cancelled the membership when i hit hard times) has apparently gone to court I received a NOTICE OF ENFORCEMENT a couple of weeks ago for the sum of #1200 approx from CES.. ..asking me to pay or make an arrangement by 21st July I am used to being sent intimidation letters by DCA's and I took no notice this morning 22nd July two CES enforcement people turned up at my door demanding nearly 2700 pounds that apparently includes further costs as its gone to high court.. ..to be honest they took me by surprise at 6.30 this morning and I was going to pay but haven't got this sum available.. .Ive told them I will look to sort it today to buy time now I dont know what to do to avoid what they say is next which is a warrant for my arrest as well as removing goods (which I know they are not entitled to do if my small knowledge serves me right. HELP! Do I try to make an arrangement with the company? What about these exorbitant extra costs? Any help very gratefully received as Im at my wits end! Thank you

  9. Hi everyone, I hope I'm posting this in the correct place as I wasn't sure if it should go here or on the Motoring Group forum. I woke up this morning to find my van had been clamped for non payment of a council parking charge. I'm not too worried about the parking charge as I am in dispute with the council and am currently going through their formal complaints procedure - I realise now I should have just paid the fine and tried to claim everything back afterwards - you live and learn! However, I am concerned with how I was forced to make a payment to the bailiffs in order to get my van back. Whilst my van is personally owned its signed up with the company name, logo and contact details and I use it for deliveries. When I explained to the bailiff I use it for my sole use in my business doing deliveries and am unable to carry out any deliveries without it I believed it was covered under Section 89, 1 of The County Courts Act as the vehicle was essential for my business and I needed it this afternoon for my deliveries. The bailiff said the Act doesn't count and he should know as he's been doing this job long enough - Is this correct ? Also, when I asked why hadn't I need notified he said a letter was sent out 10 days ago giving me 7 days to pay or the would take this action - I didn't receive the letter but have no proof and similarly they cant prove it was sent but said the fact their computer says the letter was issued that's good enough for the courts. In order to get my can back so I could do my deliveries I paid the following: Original fine and fees - £93.20 Bailiffs attendance costs - £61.94 Attendance to remove/removal - £175.00 VAT - £49.63 Total - £379.77 plus £1.00 debit card fee Is there any way I can find out if they are allowed to charge these amounts ? Plus, and this just gets better, I've just realised I've paid too much VAT as 20% of £236.94 (£61.94 + £175) is actually £47.39 - is this fraud or a HMRC matter ? (would love to start a VAT investigation!) Is there anything I can do about the over charge ? When I made the payment I explained I paying under duress as I had no alternative and was looking to mitigate my losses, in that they were phoning to a tow truck to remove the vehicle. I have since faxed a copy of this statement to Marstons as the bailiff refused to sign my statement to confirm I had made him aware. (I also wrote this on the receipt just in case) I've tried speaking to Marstons and requested their complaints procedure only to be told there isn't one, you simply fax or email a complaint and they will deal with it when they get round to it - I though anyone working on behalf of a local council had to have a written complaints procedure ? I've also telephoned my local council's corporate compliance complaints team and they have taken details and said they will look into the matter but it's normally something I would have to take up with the bailiffs firm first. Any advice anyone could give me would be appreciated - I don't mind dragging these guys through the courts or causing as much fuss as possible as I'm happy the original fine will be cancelled by the council once they have dealt with my original appeal. Many thanks in advance
