  1. Hi all, hope you can shed some insight into this situation for me! I'm currently abroad on holiday but received word from a friend minding my car that it had been seized by Newlyns in regards to a previous owner's fines. I've thankfully managed to have it released and it's currently at a friend's. I don't understand why they seized the vehicle, as when they encountered it, it was already in my name (i.e. I was the registered keeper) according to the DVLA. To the best of my knowledge, the registered keeper is the one responsible for any tickets, fines, etc., not the owner (unl
  2. I was stopped in a random police check point on a Saturday on my way back from the cash and carry locally to where I live. I was driving my brothers vehicle as mine was being repaired. We both have fully comp insurance and both are covered to drive other vehicles with owners consent. The officer that stopped me asked where I was coming from and going to, I replied from the cash and carry and on the way home. I was asked for my Insurance and I explained that the vehicle was my brothers. The officer went to his car and returned saying I was uninsured and he would be se
  3. I have some unpaid debts in the UK but currently live abroad. I have a SIPP pension with a UK provider. Can my creditors seize this pension? Can they seize any money I draw from the pension when I reach the retirement age? Do they have to make me bankrupt to take money from my SIPP?
  4. My friends vehicle has been seized and a notice of sale has been received. I am the debtor. I have included this debt in my bankruptcy which was approved a day after the bailiffs came. The Official Receiver accepted evidence that this vehicle was not my asset. My friend has provided a receipt, a bank statement, a sworn statement and a letter from DVLA confirming the car has not been in my name since February 2017. The v5 was temporarily in my name for insurance purposes as I was borrowing the car. The owner has submitted an N244 application. I have submitt
  5. When it comes to bailiff enforcement, it is very rare indeed for a bailiff to seize goods within a property. In fact, household items are taken in less than 0.1% of cases. By far the most popular item to seize is a motor vehicle. Typically, a vehicle would raise significantly more than 'household' goods and more importantly, a vehicle would normally be easy to locate (either on the debtors driveway or outside of the property) making seizure and removal a lot simpler. If a vehicle has been taken, and the debtor considers that the vehicle should be 'exempt' (for instance, the vehicl
  6. http://www.itv.com/news/central/2016-03-02/disabled-woman-claims-council-bailiffs-illegally-seized-her-car/ A disabled driver claims police and council bailiffs may have broken the law by seizing her car after accusing her of not paying a £60 bus lane fine. Blue Badge holder Cherry Clarke says she was physically removed from her Toyota Yaris by an officer before it was towed away from her home in Perry Barr in Birmingham. She has now been told she has days to pay the fine, which has risen to £93, or her car - her only means of transport - will be sold to pay the debt. Birmi

  10. On 21 July 2014 at 0830 hrs I was stopped by the police driving my car which was legally insured. However, because on this day I was going to work; I normally use a van which had broken down on the evening of the 18 July 2014. The police told me that because my insurance cover did not include commuting, I was driving illegally. We could not get hold of the insurance company before 0900 hrs so we had to wait. The police told me that I was not allowed to speak to the insurance company before they did. They also said I would need to have my insurance document in front o
  11. Dear members, please help, totally desperate! Yesterday Whyte and Co took my company van and want £1200 or they will sell at auction by 15th march. They say it is for 2 unpaid parking fines going back to July 2013. I was not aware of any of these, they must have been sending letters to my old address that the van is registered at! Me and my brother have set up a small ltd company and are electricians, the van was bought in the company's name and we can not do business without it. The registered van address is my ex family home. My relationship with partner

  13. I had my car seized by the police due to out of date tax, my fault that Im not trying to worm out of. I was using the car for my buisness at the time of the seizure, didnt quite get all the tools out due to no space in my brothers car who picked me up. I initially said that i would pay the seizure fee and collect the car, but have since changed my mind and decided to let the car go, it wasn't worth that much. I need the tools in the car for my buisness, can I simply go and pick up the tools from the car and not have to pay the recovery fee
  14. I was driving in London last week and and was stopped by the police who was standing in the middle of the road, he said there was a warrant on my van or something along that line, I was told to drive into a Car park with a few other cars, I was met by another constable together with a representative from the bailiffs Collect services, they informed me that I owed £500 for an unpaid parking fine some 3 years back, and that I needed to pay £200 there and then, I told them that I only had £60 available, I was told if I did not pay £200 I would have my van seized. I told them that they could
  15. Hi everyone, My car was seized yesterday by the police and taken to the impound - reason being I'd changed my address recently and had stupidly forgot to update them. They also sent an email, but I either didn't get it. What infuriated me though is that they didn't call - I would've sorted it out instantly. Anyways - my car is currently in the compound, and I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to get it out. I've found out that most insurance companies are only willing to insure me ONLY when the car is out of the impound. So far I've only found one company (insurance choice) that I
  16. Hello Folks, in 2009 i though it was a good idea to get a new car, so i did. i already had a car which was bought using a personal loan which was arranged by a different car dealership a couple of years earlier and it was'nt payed off yet. I got the new car and was over the moon, and was'nt really thinking about anything else at the time. My friend wanted my old car and said he would keep my monthly payments going so i stupidly agreed. I didnt get any paperwork signed over and there is nothing official put in place. This was working for the first few months until
