Hi-a company has essentially not paid £300 of mine. I recently sent a final demand letter via tracked post and i can see that it was not sign for at the other end, it is actually being sent back to me. They are also not responding to emails although they were responding before. Can someone please tell me how i would go about suing the company. thanks!
Evening, I'm hoping that someone may be able to give me some advice please. Whilst I was at work today a Task Enforcement 'bailiff' came to my house & when my wife answered the door put his foot on the threshold & then, when my wife tried to push the door shut, pushed it - and her - back into the hallway and stepped into the house claiming that he had gained peaceful entry. My wife called me to say what was happening, I dialled 999, explained what was happening & asked for the Police to attend - which they did very quickly. When I arrived at home about 30 minutes after my wife's phone call, the Police were outside with the bailiff & another officer was with my wife to take down her side of the situation. The officers were reasonable, polite & sympathetic but stated that as the 'bailiff' had entered the house they were powerless to prevent him coming back in & seizing goods. I have no complaints towards the officers nor do I dispute that there MAY be a PCN due to TfL (the notice was served on me as a Director of a Limited Company and the signatory to the lease agreement for the vehicle that incurred the PCN & I'm disputing my obligation to pay now that the Company has been wound up) but my issue is more with a) the conduct of the bailiff & the way he gained entry to the house and b) the fact that he had NO documentation or identification that proved that he was a bailiff and not an unlicensed heavy - when I challenged him on this (in front of the Police officer) he claimed that he'd "had it ten minutes ago" and that he "must have dropped it entering or leaving the property" - I don't believe him & neither did the Police officer so my question is: How do I check whether this individual is a certified bailiff? Is what he did acceptable practice? What redress do I have & how can I prevent him returning to the property when my wife & I are out to seize goods? Any and all advice would be gratefully received as my wife doesn't want to leave the house & is terrified that this man will return when she and the kids are in bed. Thanks
