    • ok again thanks for all advice , im going to continue and struggle on paying the wifes debts and maybe look at getting reduced payments but as for mine i think ill go down the DRO route and try get it sorted but will see and open new bank account somewhere first
    • Nothing to do with your own Bank.     Try to withdraw the money from Parentpay early next week and if no joy contact them.   It may be that the money is showing, but has not fully cleared on their system,
    • Hi all,   Just an update with contractual terms. These terms are from a contract at a similar time to when Tracey started as we think they have changed since.   The contract reads as follows:   Termination of employment  Xxxxxxx (Nursery) will provide written notice of termination of your employment in accordance with statutory requirement (currently 1 week’s notice for each year of continuous service, up to a maximum 12 week’s notice).   Once you have successfully completed your probationary period for the company you are required to give 1 month’s written notice of termination of employment.   Regards   Matt             
    • Thanks for helping with the post;   Still waiting for a reply from the DPD.
    • I thank the Consumer Action Group Members for getting me this far in my case which is still in progress.   Situation: The Court has reversed earlier permission for me to rely on witness summaries.    The question upon which I am seeking help, please,  is - do I need to bother myself as to why the Court has reversed permission to rely on witness summaries?  If so, what line of logic or law can might I follow because clearly, the Court has said one thing and then another a few weeks later, of its own motion, the Court has reversed the earlier decision. I find this development quite extraordinary in the sense that as a result of being granted permission earlier, I served the three Witness Summons which had the Court stamp.   Background Having given me permission to serve 'Witness Summons' which I served on 3 hostile witnesses several weeks ago, the Court has now reversed it's earlier decision, and refused me permission to rely on 'witness summaries' pursuant to paragraph 32.9(2), citing that I have not shown steps taken to obtain witness statements from the 3 hostile witnesses.  I however, made two attempts to talk to the hostile witnesses who have been non responsive and I can evidence this.   I would be immensely grateful for some steer from Forum Members, please.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

i recently had 2 bailiffs at my door for 2 parking fines on my car, they said they had clamped it and that if i did not pay £900 today they would take my car away, i told them that it was on finance, they said it did not matter they could still take it for 7 days while they contacted my finance company for them to agree to the bailiffs selling it, paying of the finance and then taking there money, they said if the finance company did not agree then they would return with police and break into my home and take goods, then they would change the locks and i would have to pick up my new keys from the police station. can anyone tell me if this is true as i stupidly paid £740 to cover one of the fines, they said they will return in a week to settle the other fine which means the whole process again. i have looked on the government website but it does not say anything about cars on finance. please help!!!!!!!!

No they can't take your car on finance, and I would look into paying that sort of money too it's not right they have defrauded you with their fee's

your fees are very large and would suggest that they are also illegal and the fact that they say they would take your car anyway is a threat, i would have thought that you have paid well over the odds already and would request a full list of costs (a snap shot) and they can not refuse this and if they do advise them you intend on taking legal action against them for fraud.

Absolute cobblers.

There is no way they can say those fees are legitimate. It is fraud pure and simple. They have also commited VAT fraud

 

Can you post the name of the firm?

 

The only way they can force entry is if they have peacefully been in your property before and have a walking possesion agreement (a list of your goods)

 

I have never heard of bailiffs calling the Police unless there is good reason for a possible breach of the peace. As for changing the locks that is pure scare tactic.

 

ALL A LOAD OF RUBBISH

I would have thought this to be correct as they are a company and VAT is based on there turnover having said that it is the debter that will be paying it and i would have thought that VAT can only be charged on the fees not the debt as most debt alreadt has VAT included so on that debt as it stands at the moment you would pay 30% VAT when it should be 15% this needs looking in to in great detail.

Re: Bailiffs And Vat

this was posted on the above thread by tomtubby on the 6th 0ctober 2008

 

A bailiff can only charge VAT on his fees when he is collecting certain debts. From September 1994, he is not allowed by law to charge VAT on his enforcement fees when collecting:

 

• Council Tax

• Business Rates

• Magistrates Court Distress Warrants.

• Child Support arrears.

• Income Tax.

 

From September 1998, the bailiff is allowed to charge VAT on his fees for all Road Traffic Debts, unpaid Rent Arrears, Customs & Excise and all other types of distress.

 

I would seriously consider writing to the company to say that unless they can provide details of the relevant statutory to allow them to charge VAT BY RETURN then you will be writing to the VAT office in their area concerning this matter.

Hi, This is the letter i was on about, which I've copied and pasted below.

To fix the fee irregularities, send the bailiff the windup letter by post and by email

 

Quote:

The Omnipotent Bailiff Co, Plc

Their Address 1

Their Address 2

Their Address 3

Postcode

 

BY POST AND BY EMAIL

 

DATE

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Re: [YOUR NAME + REF]: Your fees.

 

I write following visits by your bailiff however there appears to an irregularity with your fees and I am writing to ask you to provide me the following within seven (7) days:

 

1) The name of the court that issued the certificate for the bailiff in charge

 

2) Written confirmation of a) your fees, and b) the original debt

 

3) The name and address of the organisation that instructed you

 

4) a) Truthfully confirm in writing your fees are lawful and comply with legislation or b) refund me the unlawful fees plus reasonable compensation for being cheated by your certificated bailiff with his fees by midday the seventh day from the date of this letter.

 

A bailiff or any other person who dishonestly charges for work that has not been done will be committing an offence under the Fraud Act 2006. Section 2 of the Act specifically describes a person dishonestly makes a false representation and intends, by making the representation, to make a gain for himself or another, or cause a loss to another, or expose another to a risk of loss therefore, if no satisfactory refund is made to me by 12.00 midday seven (7) days from the date of this letter I will automatically file a complaint to police under the 2006 Fraud Act and the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. If you have charged VAT on unlawful fees then you may be reported for VAT fraud and your documents will be given in evidence. If your bailiff is certificated, a Form 4 will be filed.

 

This letter is delivered by Royal Mail and deem it good service upon you by the ordinary course of post under Section 7 of the Interpretation Act 1978. It now is your responsibility and in your best interests this letter is handed to the relevant person within your organisation.

 

Yours Sincerely

 

YOUR NAME

This is unbelievable!! Marston's bailiffs are more than aware that they CANNOT charge fees such as these and they have had a ruling on the fees that can be charges by the District Judge. They CANNOT charge for clampin a car either.

 

Which local authority does this relate to?

 

In the Sticky section there is a new link to enable the public to search if a bailiff is certificated. I would suggest that you carry out a search.
