Brief history as follows:
Last June, we had some outstanding council tax arrears which we subsequently paid direct to the council, minus excessive bailiff fees (at the time, well over £800!).
Shortly after we paid the council, we woke to find wife's car clamped in our driveway.
Car was then towed last July and stored until we received a "notice of sale" this June.
The notice of sale showed the debt bailiffs were chasing was approx £500 in fees, £200 storage. And the £1100 car was shown as worth only £150 ahead of auction!
Heard nothing since, assuming they had sold the car, until a txt from a bailiff last night threatening removal of goods and a van on the 1st. Demanding payment of just the £500 in fees, and threatening additional fees.
Are we to just pay the £500 and rid ourselves of the bailiffs, or are we succumbing to their heavyhanded tactics too easily?
Would appreciate any advice you can provide.
