    • Well, you've highlighted the problem yourself, whatever you decide will carry some risk.   However, I would think the risk of a default judgement & CCJ is to be avoided at all costs and the least worse thing would be to write them a two-line letter with their reference number and your new address.   As usual, any details you can give us on the forum sticky would be useful for the future

    • Thanks for the message that is what I thought. In the mean time they have sent another message, below, I can’t follow up with Amazon until 48 hours. But I will go armed.    “Your return period is 30 days with ourselves and then you are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.”    
    • OK, I found the letter I was looking for:     Dear Sir/Madam,   Reference: [order number]   On [date], I placed an order for a [item] and it was delivered by you on [date].   I have discovered that the [item] has the following problem: [give details].   The Consumer Rights Act 2015 makes it an implied term of the contract that goods be as described, of satisfactory quality and fit for purpose.    Any returns policy that says I have to cover the cost of returning items must only relate to the situation where I change my mind about the item ordered and not where there is a problem with the item.    I should not lose out financially as a result of your breach of contract and accordingly all costs of returning the item should be met by you.    I also require you to confirm you will arrange for [the item] to be collected.   I look forward to hearing from you.   Yours faithfully, [Your name]

    • 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

This is the first time they have called. Its to collect an unpaid parking fine from my local council. Its now a total of £363. Apparently I have to pay all or they collect my goods. What rights do I have. Are the charges fair. Can I arrange a patment plan. Can I request a breakdown of the charges and challenge them. If you could help I would appreciate it.

I don't know much about parking fines but it would help if you tell us the original fine amount and the bailiff fees incurred.

have a google at this it may help you

The Enforcement of Road Traffic Debts (Certificated Bailiffs) Regulations 1993

i would also agree that the fees are wrong

remember to complain to the council about this as the council are responsible for all bailiffs actions including there fees

put your complaint in writing to the council and the bailiffs company

I spoke to the bailiff on his mobile today. I explained that I agreed that there was a ticket to pay for but I was not going to pay anything until I had recieved in writing a breakdown of the costs as it was now at 363 pounds. He said I can tell you them now its 11.75 for a letter 68 pounds for something else and 175 for a visit he has not yet made but it was automatically added to the account anyway. I again said that I would need to see these in writing, He said this would not stop the process and that he still had the right to enter my house to collect goods or seize the car. That he could do this at anytime. I asked him how and he said he held a warrant that was raised by the council. I then stopped speaking to him but did not get angry with him. I rang the man in charge of these things at the council. Left a voicemail and will try him again tomorrow.

 

Where do I go from here?

As Hallowitch says, write to the bailiffs asking for a written breakdown of their fees and complain in writing to the council as the fees are wrong. Do not let them into your property, and move your car away too. If your car is on HP they can't levy on it.

Found out last night that the bailiff is not on the certificated register after visiting the courts website. Something that was posted on here got me to that so well done. Any advice on what to do about this bit.

 

Kind Regards

get in touch with the

Ministry of Justice Public Register of Bailiffs on 020 3334 6355

just to confirm that the bailiff that came to your house is not a bailiff

then phone the council and tell them that you will not be paying bailiffs fees because according to the Ministry of Justice Mr xxx is not a bailiff and only a bailiff can levy you are willing to pay the fine but not charges and leave the ball in there court

 

if he is a bailiff but is certificated to work for a different company he still cant collect for his new firm until he is registered as working for his new firm
