I haven't been on CAG for a while for the last 18 months I have had an ongoing battle with my electricity/gas supplier who have applied 3 times for a Right of Entry. Each time I have attended the magistrates court to contest the application and on two occasions it was refused and on one withdrawn . I just wanted to say it can be done and if you present your case calmly give an overview, a chronological history of who said/did what and when, actions you have taken, what you would like to happen and a conclusion, then the magistrates, at least in my experience, seem to appreciate you bothered to turn up and came down on my side. The three Enforcement Officers, all different, applying for the warrants at court have all been pleasant. One was so surprised I had turned up he said he wasn't going to apply for the warrant as he knew nothing about the back ground to the the issues surrounding the warrant application, so withdrew it. The second time, I went on the stand and the enforcement guy beforehand was actually very helpful. The third time he was OK but had a slight whiff of bailiff attitude about him. All three were woefully ill prepared and did not seem to have any information beyond they are there to gain a warrant. On the three occasions I have attended, I have been the only person with a warrant application for Right of Entry to have turned up. From what I saw the magistrates ask some very cursory questions and rubber stamp all the warrants. So my advice is take courage, go to the court, put your case and fight your corner even if it is just to by yourself some time.
