    • i would suggest that you stick to researching on here only. use our search top right for say CTAX or liability order.   you seriously have some wild theories, but those are understandable.   as i have said, there won't be a court hearing you need nor would that help you at all nor are expected to attend, it's not like that, it's merely a rubberstamp exercise .   there is no right of forced entry for bailiffs collecting CTAX debts. the bailiff process is one of a letter which will be entitled Notice of enforcement, this gives you 7 days to pay the sum it outlines with an associated fee of £75 for it being sent. the 2nd step will be a visit, you have no legal remit to engage with them at all, i i would not do so under any circumstances, that visit will add a further £235 fee those are the only things a bailiff can do. the most they can charge is a total of £310.   police do not ever get involved in civil matters like CTAX debt. not sure where you ever got that idea from.   its saturday now so use the W/end wisely, get reading up HERE ONLY it might well pay you on monday to go RING the council CTAX dept and plead poverty etc etc. it might also pay you to find the email address or even better phone number of your local MP and get him involved. they can do wonders.   dx

    • Hi Stu and dx1000uk,   I have done the online assessment and as I suspected I already receive the maximum benefits available to me.   Yes I was referring to the fact that some times I know that non-payment of council tax can lead to imprisonment so thanks for clarifying.   let's say I can't make their demands for payment and they do send bailiffs in, I assume these are the type of bailiffs I can just not let in and then after a certain amount of attempts they give up right? does the council then not send the police round? This is what I can't work out and worries me.   The council already know that I am struggling and can't make the payments but when do I get my chance to tell a court or the police that it's not that I don't want to pay but that I can't pay?    Walshy

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

It will only have cost the company a tenner to get your details, and the spreadsheet wouldn't have taken a great deal of time either if someone used to excel was knocking up the spreadsheet.

 

Just a thought, are the company properly registered to do claims? If not, they shouldn't be doing them, so I don't think you should have any problem getting out of the contract.

hi caro

EDIT

 

i did tell them my situation about being in debt with all these credit cards and bank when i first started dealing with them.

 

the lady asked me last night if i wish to continue with citi, they have already sent them a few letters, now they are about to take them to court. i did tell her yes, but im sure i could change my mind if i tell her, there wont be enough money to pay them if citi keeps the money to pay towards the debt.

 

i requested a copy of my signed agreement from citi back in aprill,the debt collectors acting on behalf of them write to me every once or twice a month, to tell me they are in the process of getting the copy still.

 

she said the court papers she needs me to sign are in the post,

If you have the time and inclination to deal with your creditors on your own accord then do it! You have all the help you will ever need within this very forum. I've only had a brief read through your thread, I'll endeavour to give it a more detailed look this evening. Correct me if I'm wrong but are you looking to reclaim your charges from your creditors and use a CCA request against them too?

hi sequenci, thanks for replying,

 

i had a credit card with citi financtial a few years ago,

im no longer with them,

back in aprill this year i requested a copy of my signed credit agreement,

from the debt collectors the debt was passed on to,

the debt collectors (hillesden securties) write to me,every once or twice a month to explain they are still in the process of getting it from citi financial, and as soon as they recieve it they will pass it on to me.

 

i was gonna get a company to reclaim back my unfair charges from this credit card, the company are at the stage where they are sending me court papers to sign. but there fee is 25%, im not sure i will have enough to pay them, if citi use the money to pay of the debt.

the company has just got my money owed to me from capital one which capital one used to pay of a debt i had with them (all of which was made up of unfair charges, that was also about to go to court.

 

capital one was another credit card debt i had that couldent produse a copy of my signed credit agreement,instead the debt collectors who i thought at the time had bought the debt of capital one, sent me a copy of my application form.

If the debts are unenforceable, there will be no need to claim and the company you use won't get a penny. I really don't think they are trying to do you any favours claiming back charges, although not all cases are the same.

 

I'm sure sequenci and others here on CAG will help you through.

Hi,

 

If they have ever tried to claim back from Citi they will be glad to let you out of the deal you have with them. :o Citi's solicitors play hard ball and will not take any notice of any CCA requests etc. What is it you are hoping to acheive with a CCA request?

I would suggest that you tell them that you no longer require their services and when you ahve your paperwork back from them start a thread in the Citi forum so we can help you with your claim. It may well be that you will not actually get anything in your hand, but you will get your debt reduced, or paid in full whatever the figures work out at.

Consumer Health Forums - where you can discuss any health or relationship matters.

Hi Mich,

why are the company not requesting payment to yourself?

I thought the idea of these companies, was they took their cut from the refund you get, not you having to find money to employ them:eek:.

If it is the case that refunds have to be placed against the debt, even more reason for you to do it yourself. (I think you have realised this:) )

You can do this on your own Mich, with the help and advice here, and IF any claim gets to court, you can get a Buddy:) .

LTSB court date 25/7/07

17/7/07 I WON I WON I WON!!!!:p :grin:

HSBC court date 11/9/07 (stayed)

CapOne lba 7/1/08-15/3/08 WON.

Hi Mich.

 

You've got some top notch support on your thread (i'm not including myself in that) who would be able to get you through any battle.

 

However, if you still feel nervous, don't forget there's the Financial Ombudsman Service too. They dealt with my Abbey claim and i've just sent off details for Egg Card charges. Like you, i'm apprehensive about court, but also, i have so much going on at the moment, i don't think i could focus on it all properly.

 

Whatever happens, i really wouldn't pay for help. Good luck and congrats on clearing your cap 1 debt. It's a good feeling isn't it? Another 1 down..... ;)

I'm midway through the tunnel, but getting closer to the light.

 

 

 

Please be aware that i am not an expert in anything!

I may offer an opinion, but the final decision is yours.
