    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

The fees for a HCEO are towards the bottom of the page

 

The High Court Enforcement Officers Regulations 2004

 

Whist most of the fees are set out, the HCEO will claim most of its costs under section 12 (Miscellaneous), but these costs it says can only be awarded by the master, judge or court and they would need proof of that.

Check to see if they have charged for walking possession and valuation, if they have never been onto your premises and had you sign anything they cannot charge this.

What's a stay of execution, and how do I go about doing this?

 

They've only got as far as the driveway, no further than that, where they illegally levied on my sister's cars, didn't attempt to come into the house, probably because the dog was running around the garden :rolleyes: Lol

 

Waiting to find out exactly what has been charged off of them

 

From the list of fees that I've just read the maximum they should of charged is two travelling fees ie £100 nothing has been seized or signed by me, they levied incorrectly so can they charge for this? Even if they could that would only be a maximum of £6, on first visit, they didn't do anything just left

Hi Everyone,

 

Please find attached copy of Financial Statement from Bailiffs.

 

They've charged me £105.75 to pay by instalments :mad:

 

Are these charges legal, if not, what do I need to do next?

 

At this rate, I'll never get it paid off :(

 

Please help

 

Ps Not sure if I've added attachment correctly, more help needed please

Quick update, have spoken to Bailiffs Manager, apparantly charges are on the account, just in case they need to charge them :confused:, I haven't been charged them apparantly, they're there just in case, not quite sure why they are showing as owed, but then again what do I know, Lol

Woohoo, it worked :cool:

 

Now can anyone help, what do I need to do/write etc if they are illegal charges

 

Also Solicitors told me Bailiffs don't take their fees first, they take a % of each payment I make

Hahahaha! Thats so funny!

 

Well then, they won't mind if you pay your creditor direct. They can always ask the creditor for their fees.

 

I suspect, once the creditors are on the recieving end of demands from their own bailiffs, it will be an interesting learning experience for them.

 

Sorry I can't help you with the charges all that much. I'm in a similar situation myself and would love a definitive answer.

the bailiff would normally do a check with DVLA to see whose name theya re registered in

 

the registered keeper is not necessarily the owner but being on your drive with your name on the docs is enough justification for him to seize them

 

however if i was the bailiff concerned i would have clmped them there and then so i suspect it is a bluff

 

if they are genuinely not yours and you have irrefutable proof they ar e not then get the owner to move them- the owner of the goods is not the person on the warrant therefore they commit no offence by removing them

Hi DD,

 

Cars are genuinely not mine, as proved by log books and receipt dated last year, long before Bailiffs became involved. Moving them is not an option, need them to get children to school.

 

As for questions over fees, is it worth sending a sars request, or do I just make a few payments and then request another statement?

whilst all this is going on lets go back a few steps

 

1/ was the ccj taken out against you at a previous address?

 

2/ (dont have to answer this on forum if you dont want to) do you have OTHER unsecured debts?

 

if the answer to any of these is yes then you have grounds to apply to have the original CCJ set aside:-

 

in 1/ because you were not aware that the ccj had been taken out and you had not chance to defend it (will not work if it was taken out against you at present address)

 

2/ more likely they may well have obtained a charging order if you failed to comply with the terms of the ccj you need to know so contacta the court concerned and find out if a charging order has been issued - again you should have had the opportunity to contest it so it may well be a lie however - if you have (had) other unsecured debts it can be argued that this creditor has sought to gain an advantage over other unsecured creditors

 

you need to look into the debts section of the site and search regarding applying to s et aside judgements - you will find all you need

 

a charging order on its own cannot enable the bailiff to sell your home but the creditor could- if you continue not to comply with the terms of the ccj apply for a forced sale- this is why is is CRUCIAL to find out from the court if in fact a charging order does exist and not just rely (with respect) on forum comments
