    • 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!

Hi fletch101,

 

I also deliberated over severing my claim, and decided to claim for it in one go as severing does not permit you to recover the cumulative effect of their charges. My thread for a claim of >£6400 is:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/lloyds-bank/4887-beans-timeline-joint-acct.html?highlight=Bean

 

I also have a thread for my Lloyds TSB credit card for about £300, for which I issued my claim in the local County Court last Friday.

 

You're doing fine, keep rolling,

Regards,

Bean

Having read Beans Timeline way back in those glorious days of summer and finaly getting my usual laid back a*** in to action I have just returned from Basildon County Court after dropping in my claim pack. what a wonderful feeling I had thinkig about the ppayout in a few months from the savings account that the bank had set up for me without them realising it. I would have got around to this eventualy but after a phone call fron Brighton at the weekend was just the kick up the backside I needed, the very helpful man at the other end! told me quote "The bank is not here to help you." This is not taken at all out of context and I would love to know if I have any rights in obtaining a copy of the phone call that may be recorded for security and training purposses. I must admit this fraze did bring a smile to my face as we have knowen this for a long time. I will try not to be away for to long this time and will keep you informmed of any progress. anyway thanks so far CAG and Bean for that encoragement

Hope you all had a good Chrismas and wishing you all a very prosperous new year.

Guess what? defence arrived 22/12/2006 so have got to return AQ by 08/01/2007 is this when it starts to get scary or what. Anyway it was a nice but expected Christmas prissie shame they couldn't show a bit of festive chear and credit my account but still I suppose its my own fault realy if I'd started the claim when I should have it would be all over now, but it is something to look foward to.

Any body direct me to threads that are about any one whose been allocated a fast track? Just incase....

Well I got my AQ from SC&M today also an offer to settle in full with the normal conditions applyed wont be accepting it as I dont think I should keep quiet about the truth I mean how many credit referance agencies have the banks misinformed about my finances in the past. My AQ is due at the court on Monday so it will be delivered by hand I dontknow if I have done the right thing but I have ticked the fast track box on mine SC&M have ticked the small claim one I can only assume that they dont want to disclose something or other!

The funny thing is that I fell less nuvious now it must be because I have it in black and white that they are willing to settle.

Hi fletch,

First of all good luck with the claim, and yes no point in agreeing to a confidentiality agreement. How did you calculate your interest? Standard 8%? I am asking because I am thinking of going for compound complex interest and I am nervous about the prospect of losing the court case and paying up the £1000 in fees (though I have been told £750) either way its loads of cash to me.

Have I misunderstood something, but haven't you won your claim if you have been offered a full settlement? Or are you just proceeding with the claim until you have all the conditions removed?

 

Congratulations by the way for getting the full settlement offer

 

Regards

 

Paula

Thats correct. In the fast track costs can be awarded against you up to a maximum of £750. Small claims track theres obviously a no-costs rule, and in the multi-track I think its unlimited.

 

However, even if a claim was to get to court and you were to lose, the judge would still have to order costs against you for you to be liable for them - they are'nt imposed automatically. The chances of a judge ordering costs against a consumer who is acting in person in favour of a multi national financial institution are - I would have thought - fairly slim.

Took my AQ to court yesterday along with the fee and posted copy to SC&M along with a letter saying "that I do not accept their conditions but thanks for the offer, see you in court." While filling out my AQ (N150) I noticed that SC&M had used AQ (N149) used for a small claim only so I assume if its ok for the experts it must be ok for me evan though the claim is nealy double the ammount for a small claim I also included a copy of jonni2bad s "respectfully request" letter from the templates libuary, no such letter included from the other side so I presume thay must think they are more important than the judge I'm sure it must be better to be a little humble at times.Thanks for your words of support I've got to go soon but should be back on latter.

Just drafted a copy of KAZZAW judgement (post 15) check it out if you havn't and will be sending a copy to County Court and SC&M first thing in the morning. I feel at this point I must appologise to all users of the internet for thinking they were all Geeks I can not beleive how much information can be had of one site. Keep up the great work and there will be a donation coming your way sooner rather than later I hope. I'll have to have a few lessons from my daughters between "homework sesions" and thanks to you I've a few more claims to make when this is over. Hope you dont mind but I think I'll have to tell a few people about this site. Got to go now be back sometime tomorrow.
