  1. Could I please ask a bit of advice for a friend. She is only young and was hit by a car whilst walking home one night. She was on the pavement and the car insurer has obviously accepted full liability. She went to a Solicitor who has urged her to accept an out of court settlement of £5,500 She had head injuries and needed stitches Had 3 broken ribs Post Traumatic Stress Missed her exams Three weeks loss of salary Out of this she needs to pay her Solicitor 25% Does this seem a fair settlement?
  2. My friends partner is leaving the matrimonial home tomorrow and she has no idea what she may be able to claim (she has never had to claim benefits before) Her circumstances are: Two children, one child is under seven. She doesn't work. She is on strong medication for depression (due to husband leaving her) The home is rented Where does she start in the benefit maze? Any information will be most grateful. x
  3. Ok, I do hope i am not repeating whats been answered before, and a quick search has not thrown up anything. So a pair of Magnum boots, nearly £150 worth. 3 months of wear and the sole has nearly worn through and has split about a third of the way from the front, sideways across the sole. Is this considered just fair wear and tear. All other magnum and other (decent)boots i have had have lasted for donkeys without wearing through. I did two tours in a single pair of magnums but these ones havent lasted 3 months just knocking doors. They are genuine and purchased direct from magnum so its not a knockoff issue. I have no chance of returning them as i have no receipt left and been 6 months since i bunged them in the back of the garage, so this is just a theoretical question now. Thanks GTSTL
  4. a friend has recently had a PCN for walking off site by UKCPS, windscreen ticket issued. Not sure which is the best way to proceed with this one, The car park was a free one so there is no loss on the part of the operator, there's no cctv or anpr cameras, I presume they must have someone with a camera taking photos of the driver and passengers leaving site. at this point I'm thinking do they need a picture of the driver driving the vehicle and then leaving the site ? Can anyone in the car leave the site ? or is it just the driver that is not allowed to leave the site, nothing on the sign that explains this. The sign still says BPA. Is a phone call reminding them that they aren't members of BPA enough to cancel the ticket or is there no legal thing that says they cant advertise they are BPA members when they aren't ?
  5. Simple question. Will a current walking possession agreement technically be useless after the 6th of April. If a bailiff has to re-attend in the event of a default on an arrangement, can they use the walking possession from the old reg's to gain entry, or not? My view is no, as the old reg's will be null & void, but I can't find the answer to my question in the new reg's. So, any learned posters know for sure?
  6. I defaulted on a walking possession agreement with Rossdales for unpaid Council Tax. They arrived today to remove goods stating that i must pay £896.87 or they would remove goods. The goods listed are Sharp 40" tv 2 Seater Fabric sofa Zoostorm Desktop Pc
  7. Hi-I'm considering trying to reclaim some or all of my bailiff charges over unpaid (late) council tax. Can anyone please point me to any legislation or regulations that determine valid levies please? I'm confused as to why any walking possession agreement inside a house requires a signature yet it seems that levied goods outside the house are OK if not signed (ie a car or items from a shed/outbuilding) Who decides if a levy requires a signature or not? I'm pretty confident that I can claim my Head H fee back after reading the thread on here. I also have a removal of goods fee of £240 which seems a bit steep. All money has been paid,no goods were removed and no debt is outstanding but as the dust is settling,I feel as though I've been mugged. Any advice will be greatly appreciated
  8. Hi Can anyone help me, i am trying to create a thread on here, i stupidly got myself in to debt a few years ago after suffering from depression (this is not an excuse) i am not trying to sort it out, i got myself in council tax arrears for around £800 however with court costs and fees there now saying its over £1000 they took me to court and got rossendales involved, anyway someon attended my property to do a levy or walking posssession, i panicked at the first letter and let them in, whilst doing the WOP the guy sat in a chair looked around my living room and wrote a couple of things he could see down such as a SKY HD box, an arm chair, a laptop, a side table, when he put the laptop down i said that it was not mine that it was on HP and i obviously had the documents to prove this, his words were then "its ok, we just have to write a few things down thats all, its not important" so after this i stupidly signed this and he left saying i had to send some paperwork of what i earn and pay out etc to the head office, which i did, after a month or so i heard nothing until another bailfiff letter arrived saying if i didnt pay in full they were coming to removed my goods, so i rang the bailiff who was awful and he said hes not interested in my excuses just when im paying, after the phone call i made a complaint to rossendales about the bailiff etc and they first stated they had not recieved my documents, then said yeah we did but it was too late so i had to send it all again offering them a payment of £30 per month, they wrote back and refused this and said i must pay £100 per month, i set up a standing order and a payment of £10 was made in october then another payment of £120 was made in November 2012, the next 2 payments havent been taken from my account i can only assume there wasnt enough money in to cover it, on thursday 21st February a bailiff attended again stating i had paid nothing since october and handed me a letter whish says he will return in 24hours to remove the goods, now ive since spoken to him on the phone and siad i was waiting to speak to the CAB he said to get them to ring him, Firstly there is nothing in my property even worth anything near the debt and i cant get in to see the CAB until 21st March, the bailiff is expecting them to ring him tomorrow, I am a single parent earning just over £600 per month and am 18weeks pregnant, i cant afford £100 per month, and now i dont no what to do im worried sick, ive emailed a complaint to rossendales but by the looks of things im going to come home from work to find my house emptied, i even suggested to the bailiff that an Attachement of earnings would make more sense and he said they cant do that as i work part time and they cant do it for part time wages. I just dont no where i stand legally and am worried sick, can anyone help
  9. Hi really need some advice re a walking possesion order with dukes bailiffs. Basically we are a family of 5 on low income recieving child tax creds, working tax creds, housing benefit, council tax benefit and child benefit plus my partner's wage (low income). We got behind with this years council tax due to having an attatchment of earnings on my previous years council tax. We currently owe 589.71. Anyway today i had a knock on the door and a guy introduced himself as a dukes bailiff and was nice about it saying he could accept £80 a month (i can afford that just) but that he had to come in to set it up or he would remove goods now, i said no but he had his foot in the door and i had to let him in. He left me with a inventory and payment plan he made me sign ( im also pregnant so in no fit state to argue). My problem is he has levied my father in laws bmw m3 this is worth £10,000 we were only borrowing it while we save up for a new car (ours blew up) it is registered to our address for insurance purposes. I told the bailiff it wasnt mine or my partners but he has still levied it along with my 42" LCD TV that is on HP through Brighthouse!! Hes charged us for his visit and im at a loss as to what to do! He has levied £10,500 worth of goods for not even £700 worth of debt! Please tell me how to sort this thanks. thanksin advance Debt breakdown is as follows: ORIG DEBT: 589.71 LEVY CHARGE: 43.00 WALKING POSSESION FEE: 12.00 ADMIN FEE: 24.50 TOTAL: 689.21
