  1. I have been reading this forum for advice so think I know what to do but I have a few questions. Yesterday I received a 'Notice of Warrant of Control', from my local county court (Chester) asking for £536 or the bailiffs will call 4th Feb. It is for not paying a CCJ judgement from Restons (originally Next). I emailed them in May last year when they got the CCJ asking to pay £15 a month and asking for bank details, no reply and now this. I have other CCJs/debts so never chased up at the time, tbh head is a mess and I forgot. My questions; 1 - Is the debt now owed to bailiffs and not Restons, so I can't speak to them? or should I ring them and ask for a hold too? 2 - Is N245 the best option? 3 - Is the Notice or warrant of control the same as a notice of enforcement? Panicking over a visit, I have kids that I don't need to see baillifs.
  2. Sorry for the short notice and need for help, a family medical emergency kept me away from and I've arrived back to a letter from Worthing County Court. The court have issued a Notice of Issue of Warrant of Control over a debt with Creditor of Cabot Financial. After total panic I've done some searching through my papers and the following is as brief an account as I can give of what I think has happened. Several years ago we had financial troubles and got a credit card (Vanquis) which gradually crept up and up with them constantly increasing the credit limit. It ended up at about £3400. When our problems spiralled I buried my head in the sand and didn't pay. Move forward a few years, not over 6, I and others were being bullied by a boss. The stress of this caused me to become extremely ill with stress and depression. It was going through the Union and looked favourable that I would get helped but events illy my mental health was so bad I just quite the job and the union case just to put an end to it. During this time I am ashamed to admit I pretty much became a recluse and stopped functioning. I suspect at some point around then Vanquis sold the debt to Cabot, who got a CCJ. There is probably paperwork, I don't have any to hand and I didn't go to court. With sheer force of will, I somehow managed to get well again. It's been slow going but in March I was finally able to return to a job part time, money is tight but I'm gradually paying off any debts that happened. But now I am terrified that next week the court will send in bailiffs over this debt which the stigma and stress of, is surely going to send me back into oblivion. It says I can go for a N245 form? I want to do this but need help. I want time to pay back every penny, but it won't be masses of £ at once as I simply can't do it. What can I do?
  3. Some months back I opened the door to the Tv Licensing people, and made agreement to pay licence in small amounts, Due to illness and having to move on to benefits I could not afford to keep making the payments. Today i received a warrant for arrest for non payment of the debt, I am really worried that I may be arrested, but all the same,at the back of my mind something tells me that the warrant is not what it seems to be, It is printed on card sealed on 3 edges. the front says its from HM courts and tribunals services,but the inside looks more like a tv licence warning, but says "Details can be circulated to police" amongst other things like don't delay contact us now. It has my name account number and contact details written in ink. I rang the number, while hiding my own, and asked who I was speaking too, at first all the man would say was his name, but after some persistence he said he was from the magistrates court. He did not seem genuine. So I'm not sure if it is a real warrant or not .How can I tell if it is genuine ?
  4. Hi, I run a small retail operation, bricks and locks building..., I am disputing the bill Britisg Gas have sent me, they said it's a smart meter and up to date, it still doesn;t seem right.. One of the last letters have threatened with bailiff or coming in to change the meter, how heavy are they on this stuff? Need I worry till I can try sort it out with them? How long do they normally take to take action?
  5. Hi Guys, I have received a few letters from Clarity which started with the usual we are trying to contact someone, which I ignored (why help them?) then came the "you owe us loads of money" letter, which I also ignored because I see why I should ring them or do anything initially. Then came the "we will send round the FieldCall people to discuss the fact that you owe us loads of money" letter. I was not too purturbed because a) I had been chased almost a year ago for almost the exact same amount by Lowell, who finally admitted they were wrong and appologised for writing to me (I had written a very polite "prove it" letter), and b) I recently came across these forums which are a revelation. I wrote a letter back basically saying, very nicely (I think) - prove it, and I don't want you sending anyone round to talk to me about it. Today I received the attached letter (suitably redacted), to which I want to reply in this way: Dear Clarity, If you don't know who I am, then stop accusing me of owing you money. Yours faithfully, etc. What do people think? I don't wish to fire flaming letters at them, because I feel that that sort of thing can later predudice things, if, for some reason it all turns sour. I am not worrying particularly, but would like to ensure that my response is measured and reasonable. Any advice?
  6. hello all, i have a valid gas safety certificate until November the 3rd 2018. my landlord(local council) uses a heating company for the gas safety check,... they are being very overzealous and have been calling to do an 'ANNUAL' gas safety inspection since the beginning of August...this seems very strange as its 3 months early and they know it expires in November.?? I have came home and received calling cards when I have been out and on one occasion a calling card was left when i was on holiday...as it was August. today i received a letter from the council saying they are taking me to court to apply for a 'warrant to authorise entry'? I would like to know if i can attend the court hearing (to show the certificate) and also can they do this with a valid gas safety certificate in force? thanks, Sonia.
  7. Hi guys, looking for some advice with what to do, my husband has received a letter from the court it’s a warrant of control, giving 7 days for payment, it’s a ccj he didn’t know about as it went to old address, his fault for not giving new address, I was going to fill out the N245 form & send that but after he’s phoned them they said he needs to ring the solicitor to offer payment, it’s Restons, he’s told them I deal with things like this & given authorisation for me to deal on his behalf, he doesn’t understand or deal well with things like this, they told him he can’t stop the bailiffs until he’s made an offer of payment, I need to phone them but not sure what to do or say, do I tell them I’m sending a N245? Do I do this or just offer a monthly payment, can’t afford a lot the debt is £4500, is £50 a month to low, he’s already got another ccj he pays, another letter before claim plus other debts, not sure what to do Hope someone can help & thanks in advance for any replies
  8. Hi there Im new to this forum and need some advise please. Heres the story My friend has received a "Issue of warrant of control" letter a few days ago , hes confused as to why this is, we checked on his credit file and noticed a ccj that has been placed by Lowells, how surprising! its weird as some guy knocked asking for my friend a week ago he said he was from resolve call! not sure why as i said he isn't here s the guy just walked off. Not sure if he was connected to Lowells or the same debt. he has never received any court claim forms at all prior to this the debt is with littlewoods online catelogue. Please can you advise on what is his best action. Hes on a low wage only works part time hes worried now as we dont want bailiffs at the door , they would go straight for the car! Any help is much appreciated.
  9. Hi, question - how long is a warrant of control issued for an unpaid council PCN valid for? I thought it was 12 months but the relevant bits of CPR 75.5 have been struck out (I can't post a link as I'm new, but if you google CPR 75 you'll find it) so I think the law might have changed. Any ideas?
  10. Hi, some weeks ago a letter from Eon reached my address addressed to a person who does not live there and liver lived there in the last 5 years, and wasn't the person who lived here before we moved in. Thank you for switching to EON, please send us your meter reading so we can complete the switch. Thinking nothing of it, I binned the letter. After that more letters from eon arrived, addressed to the occupier. Most I binned some I opened. They seemed very genuine, in the line of You won 1 million pounds please send us your personal details and some money so we can complete the transaction. More recently they were actual bills, reminding me to send my meter reading to my supplier which is not EON. It didn't work online. I tried it by phone and it didn't work. I called them on there service phone and the lady accepted my meter reading. A week later and I still didn't get a bill. Checked online and my meter reading wasn't there. Now I sent an e-mail to my supplier who confirmed that EON had falsely grabbed my account and switched it to them. (They still had all the data like meter point number and meter serial number because they were the supplier years ago before we switched to the new supplier). I checked the old bills, and the previous account number was different to the account number used for the new bills. I called EON and was put on hold most of the time for more than 10 minutes. Once I talked to someone, but I remember only because I didn't input the account number as asked. As soon as I gave him the account number I was put on hold. A mail from my current supplier confirmed they are working on the issue to solve it and it can take 6 months. Now letters from EON contain the bill for some time (£37), a threat of debt collectors, and threats of court orders, magistrates, warrants, etc. I'm afraid one morning a whole terror group of the police will smash in windows and doors, killing my orchid, only to have a look at my meter. When I checked the Internet, I found this practice of threatening The Occupier by utility companies is going on at least since 2004. Is there any party or MP or court or judge willing to put a stop to this fraudulent behaviour? Put the CEO and her whole board of directors into prison and throw away the key, something along this line. We had a similar issue with British Gas. After moving in to a new property, someone knocked, asked for the meter reading, and a week later I got a letter from British gas congratulating me to switch to them. Somehow I got the matter resolved in a very short time, probably involving trading standards, or calling BG and pulling the guy through the phone line. Can't remember. But this seems to me endemic considering all the links found here and other forums, and the Internet at large. Another question: If I go to court to stop the harassment by EON, how much would I need to pay to a lawyer?
  11. I arrived home earlier this week to find a Marston agent sitting in his car across my gate. He had a warrant and was collecting £393 for an old speeding fine that I knew I had finished paying off, and told him so. Usual intimidation, he was only acting on the info he had. I should pay the fine now and then appeal it. He'd already filled out the form for the next stage which would mean another £600. He said he had a team "following him around" to seize goods, which they would do the same evening. So I coughed up the £393. Then I emailed the Court who had issued the fine and warrant. They replied today that it had been issued and enforced in error, and that Marston had been emailed and instructed to refund my money. Whilst I feel somewhat vindicated, is there anything I can do to complain and escalate this. Does it do any good? Will anyone compensate me, or even apologise? cheers
  12. Hi, I've been a menber on here for a while now and have found it to be very helpful. I've even got a good credit record now thanks to this site!. But for what is approaching 7 years now I have had a horrible time with brittish gas business. Their incompetance (if it is to be believed as such) knows no bounds. To be honest, I fully believe their actions to be fraudulent, there is just no other explanation for the extent of errors that ALWAYS end up in thier favour. I've just been to court about a warrant for disconnection, I think this was the 6th or 7th time? I forget. But again it got postponed and again I've got to deal with the stress of threats of disconnection for another month or however long it takes them to sort it out again. I run a small garage and am the only employee (Ltd). It doesnt earn me a lot of money but I get by. I know this is a business issue but I feel the fact it relates to my business and not my home isn't really the issue here, it's Brittish Gas in general and seems to be typical of their policies and tactics so I hoped to find someone with experience of dealing with them here. Ill try to summarise the problems, there is far too much to go into full detail. At this point I think the only action I can take is to prepare a court case against THEM. I have thought about the energy ombudsman but I'm not sure this is whithin their scope (I used the financial ombudsman once before about an insurance issue, and found the service to be fairly slow and dissapointing although it did eventually end up in my favour). Here goes: Timeline of problems with British Gas: (abbreviated) 1. The initial electricity bill received in April 2007 was for £2659 (for a 4 month period), around £2459 of which was overcharged. The discrepancy was later put down to an incorrect meter reading supplied by the landlord (although it should be noted at this early stage that the ‘incorrect’ reading was in-between 2 professionally supplied, correct readings provided by their meter reading staff, just weeks each side of the ‘incorrect’ one. They were roughly 39,000, 25,000, 40,000, in that order). Threats and harassment were made from this point and still haven’t stopped to this day. 2. Around this time my company received numerous energy supply bills, totalling over £10,000, for gas and electricity, regardless of the fact that since incorporation the company has never received piped gas supply, even to this date. The only utilities supplier contacted at this point with any details of the company were British Gas. All the bills had to be dealt with. Not the sort of stress a fledgling business needs! 3. The initial issue seemed to be resolved later in that year, but subsequently the bills received were seemingly random, often overcharged by many thousands of pounds, even though the usage was steady at around £60/month. Due to the random nature of the bills, The company had no idea what was actually owed to British Gas for a substantial time. In that time a debt built up although payments were being made. 4. After innumerable correspondence’s with British Gas over the years, the case finally got elevated to a ‘high’ level. The bills were investigated and dealt with by Yvonne Greenhalgh-Brown, who (seemingly) sorted everything out on the account in August 2010. To quote her email: ‘I understand that when you took over the responsibility for the property, on 18 November 2006, your account was opened to a meter reading provided by your landlord of 25303. This reading was clearly incorrect as we had received a read dated 23 October 2006 of 38348‘. 5. The premises then had a smart meter installed and continued to pay money off the outstanding amount at a steady, albeit fairly slow rate. During which time the threats of disconnection and the subsequent business interruption or closure and extra charges continued. I was forced to send a letter to British Gas requesting them to stop the telephone harassment I was receiving from them (20+calls per day, 9am-11pm). 6. During September 2011, I started to receive letters from Chase solutions on behalf of British Gas, regarding an apparently outstanding amount for a company I’ve never heard of, supposedly occupying the same address. This actually included a visit from a debt collector, who promptly got shown the door. Upon checking my bills, The small print on the back actually included the name of this ‘fictitious’ company after a certain date (I say fictitious as there has, to the best of my knowledge, never been any company working under that name anywhere in the area for the previous 10 years or more). Again, after numerous correspondences’ and much time wasted, the issue was seemingly resolved. 7. The business continued to pay off the debt but after receiving more threats I decided to look into the account myself, as the debt was nearly cleared; to work things out properly, from scratch. This included checking all bills, meter reads and rates, and compiling them into a spreadsheet. The resultant total as far as I could tell, showed my actual amount owed to be roughly £200 less than what was being asked, making the total owed at that point to be a little over £300. As it turned out, I had missed one payment I had made, and included another twice (not that I should have been made to work it out at all, of course) so my total was £60 out, bringing the total at that point to a little under £400. Instead, I received a bill for over £1400. This was during October 2012. It seems the issue with the starting meter read has been brought back from the dead (although I have no idea how this level of incompetence can happen at such a ‘high’ level in a company such as British Gas). Numerous dates and meter reads were invented to suit British Gas’ needs, even though I have the correct documentation, including a date 6 months before the property was taken over. 8. Numerous correspondence was sent through various methods including (but not limited to) 24 emails for this issue alone. None of which were read through properly or even taken any notice of. For such a seemingly simple issue I find this very disappointing that nothing has been done even now about this. 9. Face to Face supplied a warrant notification to the company dated 20th May 2013, to appear on the 19th June 2013. On the 17th June 2013, my account was cleared and all debts paid with British Gas (after careful calculation, excluding any overcharging). This is the third time Face to Face have taken me to court over this account and this same issue. Not once have I received any form of compensation or costs. Upon ringing British Gas on the 17th June 2013, I was informed the complaint was still open on my account (although I had been previously made aware it would be closed). 10. It has been back in court every month since then, I have attended June, I missed july as I did not receive the letter (the guy from face to face actually turned up at my work but said he couldn’t cut me off as there was no engineer working that day!), and I attended august and September. Every time it just gets postponed. This last time I actually got to go in and speak to the judge, but they had already decided to postpone it. Apparently the representative did not have the information required. I had all the necessary information with me but wasn’t given a chance to present it. 11. On many occasions, dates, meter reads, facts and figures have been altered and adjusted to suit BG's needs. As well as plain and simple lies being told. It's a shame for them that I have all original documentation! I see no other action than to pursue BG for damages and costs, as I am substantially out of pocket for all this fiasco. I would ask the courts to award costs, but it just gets postponed every time. I've spent hundreds of work hours correcting their mistakes and preparing all the information I need, not to mention the time spent away from work attending court all those occasions. I would have switched suppliers, but since there has always been a debt on the account, through no fault of my own, I have not been able to (or so I have been told). I've missed out on some good deals on electicity because of this. It would not suprise me if this was intended. Indeed, nothing BG does suprises me now. I wish I had recorded all my calls to them over the years as on one occasion the girl on the other end of the phone told me, upon being quizzed why I should recieve a £4000 bill for one month in a 1000sq ft premises, that "BRITTISH GAS OFTEN SEND OUT OVER THE ODDS BILLS TO SCARE PEOPLE INTO PAYING". I think I must have 'derren brown'ed' her into admitting something she shouldn't have! It has been escalated to a high level whithin BG on a few occasions now and still hasn't been dealt with properly. It would even be classed as an historic debt and become unpayable, but it doesn't seem to stop them. Every single bill I have recieved from BG in 7 years has been overcharged, by either hundreds or thousands of pounds. This cant be purely clerical error. I know it's brittish gas, but thats pushing it even for them. I cant begin to describe the stress this has caused me over the years. this last bout being the worst, not long after it started my engagement split up and I lost my future wife and stepson. It's difficult to prove who would be responsible for such a thing but the stress I was under from BG played a major part in this. No amount of money could compensate me for that. Any help with preparing a case or even just what direction to take would be greatly appretiated. Sorry for the long post.
  13. Hi. I set up a payment plan for a £300 council tax debt. Managed to pay the first instalment (£20), but due to lack of money missed the second payment. Just had a Schedule 12 Taking Control of Goods letter delivered. They also added £235 for the enforcement fee. Is it possible to contact the council again and renegotiate, and avoid dealing with the bailiff? I also have a motor vehicle outside (old car worth under £500) . I take it's a good idea to park it elsewhere? I'm keeping the doors/windows closed, and refuse to answer the door. But my main concern is that they'll force their way in. Will this happen? Thanks.
  14. Hi, This is my first post here and need some advice please - Had a letter given to me by mum yesterday which I opened to see it was from marstons and a notice of enforcement for HMCTS for £8,900.00. I was given a £11,600 fine last year for a VAT debt from the magistrates ( was to do with no giving security at the time) which was a £500 fine and £11,100 compensation. I have been paying this fine and was being paid every month, I believe the last couple or maybe just 1 (need to check) haven't gone out for some reason. Obviously debt has already gone down by £1700.00 since June last year when imposed. The details on the notice of enforcement state " a warrant of control has been issued by her majesty's courts and tribunal serve, distress warrant and then a date of 17/05/2017. I have read somewhere about it can only be enforced within 180 days of the date? What does that mean? I don't have £8,900.00 to pay marstons and don't know what to do, I have read that they won't accept payment plan? I am already in an IVA as of Feb 2017 which I know this can't go in as is a court fine. Will the court if I call them cancel this down and go back to the original payment plan? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance. Adam
  15. Hi, My partner had two credit cards between 2001-2008 - both of which she defaulted on when her husband left - leaving her with two young kids. Unable to pay the mortgage she was forced to move into Council Accommodation. Today, She received a Notice of Issue of Warrant of Control. Creditor: Cabot Financial (UK) Ltd The letter states that if the debt (£857) is not paid by 2nd Feb 2018 then Bailiffs will be call to remove goods for sale at public auction. I work as a bar tender and my partner is disabled and on benefits. No attempt was made to contact my partner in the last 8 years regarding the debt (we still don't know which CC it applies to.) by mail or telephone. She is terrified that the bailiffs will turn up and start ransacking the house. Can anyone give me a clue as to where to begin fighting this?
  16. Hi i have arrears on my gas and electric and failed to maintain previous agreements with them due to health reasons . They said they have been to court and will be fitting prepayment meters even though this is not what i want said it's too late to agree anything now that they can't give me a date when they'll come it'll be when ever they can, they won't give me a day. they were rather rude on the phone.
  17. This is yet another important decision from the Local Government Ombudsman and one that once again makes clear that if a debtor who is subject to bailiff enforcement considers that he may be 'vulnerable', he must be prepared to provide evidence and outline how his 'vulnerability' affects his ability to deal with the debt. In brief, Mr B's complaint was as follows: Mr B incurred 5 penalty charge notices. He believes that there is a law from the year 1600 that means that he can’t be fined and so can park anywhere. He and his wife both have Blue Badges and he considered that being granted a Blue Badge means that he has meet the criteria for ‘vulnerability’. Mr B told the Council he was a vulnerable person. However, he had not explained why he considers he is vulnerable. He was of the opinion that it is the Council’s job to prove he is not. Mr B complained a business centre issued the warrants rather than a court and so were invalid. Mr B complains that the bailiffs did not have the correct warrants. The Council has said the court sends the warrants electronically and so there are no paper copies. PS: A copy of the decision can be read in the following post.
  18. Hi It's been a long time since I was last in debt and had to deal with bailiffs' and debt collection companies so i'm not sure if things have changed so i'm looking for a bit of advice ? I Went home this lunchtime and a bailiff had left a letter threatening to get a locksmith to break into my house to remove goods with the police possibly present. ..in fact the letter was quite threatening I thought that this was illegal as the debt owed was a personal debt through a county court CCJ not a magistrates fine or debt to any other governmental department, what I need to know is are they allowed to do this. The debt collection company who pursuing this debt is lowells and they have bought a lot of my debts and are trying for CCJ's on all of them and is this how they operate now ? Thanks in advance for any replies
  19. I signed a franchise aggreement (unfortunately) and I would like to know if the : personal guarantee`s that was included is legal, if it was not witnessed, at the time of signing, and their is no provision for a witnesses signature, is there a set format for this, and could it be deemed invalid and/or, not binding? when is a deed not a deed? Your advice would be welcome. Thanks!
  20. ‪Hi Guys. ‬ I received a letter from county Court which say “notice of warrant of control”. Creditor : Lowell portfolio Ltd Re: Lowell financial limited To the debtor : “ You have not made payments under the judgement as you were ordered. The creditor has therefore asked for a warrant to be issued to the bailiff to seize your goods. Unless you pay the amount due in county Court by 24th November. Total to pay (including fees) on this warrant £ 170.25 Balance outstanding (after payment on this warrant) £ 572.57” The problem is I haven’t received any letters from court or Lowell. I have no idea what this debt was for? I am not always on this address as well. How can I stop this warrant,obtain further details about this debt and defend this claim ? Any advice will be welcomed. Thanks ����
  21. Hello fellow CAGers, I'm trying to help my Uncle here. He received a notice to apply for a warrant with a £300 debt. However, he paid the debt in full 2 days before the hearing. EON went ahead with the hearing and got a warrant. Two days later they (or their agents) created huge panic with my Aunt and Nieces when they used a locksmith to break into the house to fit a prepayment meter. The meter is on the outside of the house and easily accessible so there was no reason to break in. (I understand they may want to inspect appliances). My question is what can be done? The warrant was obtained illegally/immorally and the representative must have confirmed to the bench that the debt was outstanding and cannot have exercised due diligence to confirm that the debt was outstanding or they lied. A complaint was made to Eon a few weeks ago and they have not responded despite saying they will reply within 5 working days. I'm thinking a lot of wrongs here. No debt, warrant obtained illegally/dishonestly/negligently, tort, alarm and trespass. Thoughts on next course of action?
  22. I received a notice of issue of warrant of control letter on 21st July. I states that I have until 26th July to pay the amount on the letter or bailiffs will be coming to my house to seize and sell goods. Of course I am panicking about this as I don't want bailiffs coming to my home. I am currently on ESA benefits and cannot afford to pay what they are asking. And they have only given me 5 days to do so! I have been speaking with the creditor Lowell and I arranged to set up a monthly payment plan. However the amount they set was too high as like I said I am on benefits, so they asked me to fill out an expenditure form to show how much I could afford. I emailed this to them and heard nothing back. And forgot about it to be honest. The next thing is I receive this letter! Please help! Any advice is appreciated.
  23. Dear all I would be very grateful for any help with my situation. I had a SPO following mortgage arrears (£3600) in 2008. Since then I have been making my contractual payments but had missed payments on three occasions from unexpected expenses resulting from direct debits being returned unpaid. I was in a particularly bad financial condition in the last 6 months following an elderly family member falling unwell while abroad. The mortgage arrears accrued to £3400 again and the mortgage company ( a subprime lender) has now applied to the court for a warrant for possession. I panicked and raised money from friends and family to clear off the arrears, but the lender is refusing to accept any payments and instead insists that I send them last three months of bank statements before they would decided whether to accept the payments or not. They insist that until I serve them the bank statements, they can't do anything about the eviction and says an eviction date will be issued in due course. They also made me complete an income and expenditure with them over the phone. I am very reluctant to send in bank statements, since with the financial difficulties over the last three months, I have resorted to payday loans (cleared) and I am very worried this will again jeopardize the situation. I am otherwise in a stable job and would be able to afford my contractual payments going forward. I have raised the money and want to clear the arrears but I am left in this dire situation. With family and young children, it looks as if my fate is sealed. May be someone else on this forum would have had a similar situation and I am sincerely hoping for some advice and help. Apologies for the long post.
