RE ROSSENDALE BAILIFFS

Today the bailiffs called at my mums house for an outstanding amount of £352 for last years charge the bill was only £100 before that approx. My mum is 64 and came out of hospital yesterday after having an operation.He told her he wants the full amount tomorrow or he will force entry to seize goods for the amount. She previously had an arrangement to pay but due to circumstances beyond her control she defaulted she told him she wants to pay and tried to come to an agreement with him but he handed her a letter saying magistrates liability order. My mum has tried to get a loan and also to borrow the money today.Can someboby advise me how to help as I do not see how this is all legal.

Hi.

 

Has your Mum signed a walking possession order or allowed him into her house previously?

Hi Sarah, I have removed your other thread in order that all advice is kept together on your mums situation. What is the debt in relation to?

HAVE YOU BEEN TREATED UNFAIRLY BY CREDITORS OR DCA's?

 

BEWARE OF CLAIMS MANAGEMENT COMPANIES OFFERING TO WRITE OFF YOUR DEBTS.

IT is contrary to the bailiff ''industry's" code-of-conduct to put someone in a situation where they feel they have to try and get a loan to pay the bailiffs (someone on this site will have the relevant wording for this).

 

Providing your mum has not allowed the bailiffs to enter her home and has not signed a walking possession order, and as long as she does not leave any doors or windows open through which they can sneak in, they have no right of entry.

 

I suggest that she contacts the council and asks them to take back the case from the bailiffs. They will try and hoodwink her that they have no power to do so but that is all bluff. They CAN take cases back from the bailiffs, especially if they are pressured to do so through a local councillor.

You need to WRITE a letter and send it both by post AND e-mail to say that mum has just come out of hospital and that she is aware of her rights and will NOT allow a bailiff into her home.

 

Offer an affordable amount, remembering that bailiff companies prefer the debt is paid within 6 months. ENSURE that payments are made on time otherwise she will receive the standard REMOVAL NOTICE.

 

Copy the letter to the council and address it for Head of Revenue, Council Tax Department.

I would also send a copy to her local councillor, explaining the problem, as a matter of course.

 

They can and do assist with cases such as this.
