    • It isnt a great thing to have to worry about all these things. I am sure someone on this site will offer some great advice.   Priority debts need to be sorted first; Rent/Mortgage, Council Tax, Utility   - Dont quote me as I do not know the legal points around this; but Overdrafts, catalouge, card debts are not priority. I would sit down and work out exactly what your priority debts and living costs are, deduct from your income. Look at all your cards, loans overdrafts etc, list them all, starting from the highest interest charging ones, think what and which ones to work out a realistic monthly payment, dont overpay what you cant afford.  I would consider not using the cards etc, as you will be adding to your debt and problems. I would contact someone Like Stepchange or Citizens advice, they will offer you some very good advice and ways of contacting your companies you have debt with. Dont be afraid of your debt companies, write to the fully explaining situation and what you can realistically offer, do not be preasurised into paying more than you can I personally prefer contact by post or e mail rather than telephone. Ive no idea what Factor, Monzo is, but may well fall in line with what Ive said.   Keep a note in a diary of every call you made or who contacted you, ask for names, keep and copy all letters to and from as this may be helpfull further down the line for record keeping.   Do not ignore contact as this just adds more stress for you and the problem wont go away.   Make sure you make your affordable monthly payments, every month, even if they say we wont accept it, its to low.    As you have a lot of stress going on, I would certainly contact someone like Stepchange or Citizens advice,    Good luck
    • Hy. Caring for family adult learning disability; full time, currently unpaid from work, unpaid carer - receive weekly carers allowance This is what I have searched on so far; - can only receive from employment £132 a week, after Tax, NI, deductions in all about £201.00 a week, but this is taxable and needs to be entered on tax submission, but if less than personal allowance then no tax may be paid? - I believe NI is paid as long as you get the carers allowance, although gap between break in employment and start of carers allowance may not be? -Should employment end due to company not happy in change of hrs and I have to leave, then only the carers allowance would for be the income, If UC is applied for would this allowance be deducted from what UC give or the person I cared for be affected - Savings may affect if you get UC or not - Certainly cant be available for looking for work as full time carer   anyone have any points, help or advice on this issue please
    • hy, In a nutshell; - current contract  work part time Mon to Fri 24 hrs - Unpaid year off break to become family member full time carer - Need to either go back to work at end of next month, start of July or leave - Application for Transfer was turned down   - Letter to go in this week with a application form to request change of contract, hrs, days so that I can look after family member - change requested will be work mon, tues, wed but not more than 13.5hrs or 14, then breaks deducted to stay within legal earnings limit as carers allowance is recieved - it is not possible to work thur, fri sat, sun due to care needs and travelling for adult disabled family member   ok; Ive done a bit of digging, I can send application  for reduction of the hrs and contract which i think the govt said I can legally do. Doesnt mean the company has to be bound legally by it. It may be that it isnt suitible and there for ask me to resign. Or they may agree! Or terminate my employment. But as I am a full time family carer for a family member within the same household, I should have a good case to argue.    Does anyone have any further knowledge or experince of this to advice me, what legal or other rights, but if I quit or asked to quit, would claiming benefits as such be suspended for quiting a job, thanks    
    • I’m looking for some guidance please. I’ve been reading up but am stuck on what I should do and going round in circles now.   Trying to manage my own DMP and making a mess of it I think.   My income is £1015 per month Essential outgoings: factor fee £93 pet insurance £81 (giant breed so quite costly) TV licence £13.37 Groceries for 3 adults and giant breed dog £309 Council Tax £111 Internet £36 Electric £59 No water/gas/car Public transport £30 Gifts £15 Mobiles £6 Debt to family £42 Saving £0 Leftover £220 (for creditors) Actual Original Total Due to Creditors £600 (pro rata started) So I’ve started negotiating pro rata payments while still trying to keep credit cards going for future emergencies (they are maxed now but if I can pay them down it releases credit for me to have as a back Up)   It’s all getting worse, I’m struggling, I have depression, my wife has depression and is unwell. Interest on 3 cards is over £100 so not really paying anything off.   I’ve negotiated pro rata on some and I think I’ve gone in too high because I’m really struggling with it, I forgot that when they ask for income expenses they don’t take into account that the factor bill is 3 monthly and therefore I need £279 by May 31st and not £93 as budgeted so already in trouble for month 2. Partner debts: Starling bank overdraft: £400, 2019. Pro rata £14 arrangement to pay, no default.   Tesco Credit Card: £100  started 1/12/2019; defaulted 7/10/20 £5 mth   Virgin Credit Card: £2700 started 14/5/18; defaulted 30/3/21 £5 mth   Marks and Spencer Credit Card: £850 started 18/10/19; defaulted 13/1/21 £5 mth   Nationwide Credit Card: £1500 started 30/4/19; defaulted 28/12/20 £5 mth   Barclaycard CC: £1400 (PRA group purchased it) started 25/8/18; defaulted 16/7/20 £5 mth.    Aqua Credit Card: £3900 (now with Cabot Financial) started 3/12/18;  defaulted 12/11/20 £5mth   Aqua Loan: £1700 (now with Link Financial) started 28/9/19; defaulted 2/2/2021 £5 mth   My Debts:   Monzo Loan:  £1900 October 2021 – permanent pro rata £39 agreed, not defaulted    Likely Loans: £1500 December 2021 – temp £14 pro rata, not defaulted    Monzo overdraft: varies up to £750  - temp £10 pro rata   Monzo Flex: £900 December 2021 – temp £11 pro rata   Fluid Credit Card: £1500 July 2021 (on a holiday until August) £0    Capital One Credit Card: £700 £40 mth (up to date)   Amazon Credit card: £2450 November 2021 £75 mth (up to date)   Next: £56 December 2021,  £5 mth (up to date)   My dilemma is I can’t pay the factor bill and have maxed my cards.   I wonder about going on a payment holiday with Amazon and Capital One and then negotiate pro rata using a part of the £220 left for creditors in time, so keeping the pro rata proportional.   In August my Fluid holiday ends and they want £80.   I’m not getting hassled by any creditors and prefer an option that keeps it that way but last night seriously thought should I stop paying all of some of them.   Thanks  Stuckfast

Hi all,

Hope someone can help on this,....

I recently had a letter from th baliffs (MARSTON GRP) saying i owed for a parking fine some months ago.

No mention on the letter as to how much,..so i phoned them,recording the whole thing,..they sid i would have to write to them to ask how much!!

Bit odd..i then told them they had a legal obligation to inform me of the amount they wished to collect..suddenly they could tell me..

Fine £180

Attendance Cost £138.

Admin Fees £75.06

 

These costs are so imoraly high, so, I then managed to contact the bailiff that wanted to make the collection and informed her i had made an online payment in full for the ammount quoted on their online payment page of £198.77 (this being more like the true ammount owed).

I had asked my father to make the payment using his credit card.

I recorded the conversation with MS Scott the bailiff and told her that her costs were imoral and probably illegal and that if she or the bailiff company made any attempts to get this illegal cost that i would happily see them in court.

Today my father has noticed a Direct Debit has been set up on his account for £35. to CPP.

I know this is illegal and will be contacting the bank to have this stopped and refunded, THIS IS MY FATHERS BANK ACCOUNT>NOT MINE.

I have spoken to the police but they sem unsure of their position,...SO___does anyone know what i should do next?

Thanks

My thoughts exactly..waiting till the morning and then lots of calls to as many people as i can think of,..The police (ahhh bless 'em) didnt seem to understand what the law says about theft from an account, so they've asked me to ring back tomorrow and tell them what i've found out,.lol

Get your father to cancel his card with his bank stating fraudulant transaction.

When your father made the payment did he give his bank account details, ie. sort code and account number, or card details.

nope ...says DD

 

That's good- the bank will refund it. Make sure the bank is aware of the circumstances in detail.

 

As for complaining, I agree with the other posters. Trading Standards and the OFT for sure. I'd also complain to the local authority that issued the parking fine (they are responsible for the conduct of their agents- if they don't do anything make full use of their complaints procedure to tie them up so that they think again about using these ****) and even the police. What this low life did was theft and he deserves to have his collar felt.

....

Today my father has noticed a Direct Debit has been set up on his account for £35. to CPP.

 

Get a refund under the Direct Debit guarantee, the bank can also suspend Marstons direct debit originating account. Very serious breach of trust.

 

The law prescribing bailiffs fees for unpaid parking tickets is Schedule 1 of the Enforcement of Road Traffic Debts (Certificated Bailiffs)(Amended 2003) Regulations 1993 It provides £28 to be charged for an attendance and £11.20 for a letter.

 

The law does not provide for anything called 'Attendance costs £138'. I suspect the bailiff has cheated you with his fees. A simple Form 4 complaint will fix that.

how do i move thread?

 

You can't. Only the Site Team (Moderators) can.

 

If you scroll to the top of the page, you'll see that this thread is now in the Bailiffs Forum.

All done for you, and you didn't even have to put your coffee down. :-D

CPP and £35 are you sure that is not a Card Protection Policy or CPP?

For the love of god, I wish I had spotted this thread earlier. It's nothing to do with the bailiffs.

Its an excellent post but the vital information is missing.

 

The complainant needs to phone the Ministry of Justice Public Register of Bailiffs on 020 3334 6355 (their new number) and ask which court issued the bailiffs certificate.

 

The complaint (Form 4) form is also publicly available.

When your father made the payment did he give his bank account details, ie. sort code and account number, or card details.

 

For some reason, this question still hasn't been answered. To set up a direct debit, the bailiffs would have had to obtain the father's bank details (different from card details). They could only obtain these if the father (or someone else connected) has supplied them.

 

How about clarifying this ozric.......

Bailiff DID NOT set up the DD. I have told you that CPP is Card Payment Protector. It is a coincidence.
