    • Ok looks like we are going to court. Ive recieved a "Directions Questionnaire" (Small Claims Track).   Obviously self explanatory to fill out but I assume I dont agree to mediation? Will this be frowned upon? Obviously I have no intention of giving them a penny so unless mediation results in them witdrawing their claim I presume I tick no here?
    • Notice of Allocation to smalls claim track ( hearing )     the final hearing is 16th December   the trial fees are non refundable , does not give a date for fees , it says if parties settle before the trial fee id due then the trial fee will not be payable , if a consent order settling the matter is requested after the trial fee has been paid then the consent order fee will be payable .      
    • OK, so Idem has sent back the quickest response in history following the CCA letter from my OH. An envelope arrived today.   They've sent another copy of the original and signed, application form  from 2000 - most  of which is illegible however, husband's name, address and signature is clear - the small writing is very blurry.  They've also sent numerous A4 pages of what they say is the agreement (it's photocopies of what look likes old pages). There's no signature on it. It's just pages of A4.    Does this help us at all??   Also, am I right in thinking that day claim arrived (4th Sept) + 33 days = Monday 7th October, which is when the defence needs to be in by?   Thanks as always.
    • Hello all,    I have received a letter from Advantis in regards to an overpayment of carers allowance I received when I got a job whilst I was caring for my mother. I did not know I had to inform them etc.    Long story short, I had a compliance phonecall with carers and nothing more was said.    I stopped caring for my mum shortly after and cancelled my carers allowance too.    I was employed for 4 months at the beginning of 2018.    Apparently the DWP and carers have sent letters but I haven't responded so they've gone through Advantis to recover the amount owed. I moved house shortly after cancelling everything and had no contact from them at all.    They sent letters to my previous address so they told me that's why it's been passed onto Advantis.    Today DWP told me that the only thing they can do is take payment in full, or deal with Advantis to come up with a payment plan.    I spoke to Advantis who asked me to pay in full or in two installments, I refused and they then said they've put my account on hold for 30 days whilst I go away and work out my monthly income etc so they can go through an affordability assessment to work out how much I can pay back and how often.      What shall I do? DWP tell me there's nothing they can do as it's been passed onto Advantis.    Advantis tell me they are working on behalf of the DWP... Nobody will tell me who owns the debt.     What shall I do?    Thank you all in advance for your amazing help.     
    • Hi, I have just received a pcn from Euro Car Parks saying that my car was in one of their car parks for 13 mins without making a payment. The reason being is that my husband was waiting for me, but where he thought I would only be 5 mins I was longer because of health issues and I had to take a rest. As if this wasn't enough, unbelievably I have just received ANOTHER notice saying I had not paid for a ticket on the 9th of September. I would like to mention the car park charges are so cheap, at £1:20 all day, it would be insane not to pay. We have used this car park only around 4 times and have always paid, excepting th time the car was waiting for 13mins. What a shock I have got receiving these notices. I wonder if I accidentally keyed in my registration incorrectly? Please can someone advise.

On 17th March 2009 the Ministry of Justice announced plans for a new code regulating the activities of bailiffs and one of the changes was to introduce a much needed certificated bailiff register allowing debtors to check on-line whether a bailiff is certificated.

 

This is now available from the following link: www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/CertificatedBailiffs/

 

 

As you will see, you may search by either providing the bailiffs first name, surname or employers name. However....could you please note that if you are searching under the name of the company ...for some companies you will need to provide the full name of the company as following:

 

Bristow & Sutor....same

 

CCS....CCS Enforcement Services Ltd

 

Dukes....Dukes Certificated Bailiffs

 

Equita....Equita

 

JBW....JBW Enforcement Ltd

 

Marston....Marston Group

 

Newlyn....Newlyn Collection Services

 

Philips....Philips

 

Phoenix....Phoenix

 

Rossendales....Rossendales Ltd

 

Swift....Swift Credit Services

 

Task....Task Enforcement

 

 

Could you please note that a bailiff’s certificate is valid for just 2 years.

 

If your search reveals that the bailiff is working for a different company it is important to be aware that statutory regulations laid down by Parliament state that if there are "any changes" to the certificate then the bailiff must “without delay” give notice to the Court and a new certificate will be issued to him reflecting the changes. This is vitally important because in almost all cases, the bailiff’s bond will be cancelled when he leaves his previous employer!!

 

As I have said many times here on the forums, it is always the case that if you have a complaint about a certificated bailiff then this should first be sent to the bailiff company to address and a Form 4 Complaint to the County Court should wait until the company have had an opportunity to sort out the complaint.

 

As a Form 4 Complaint can have serious repercusssions for the individual bailiff, the County Courts also expect that the debtor should at least allow the company to have the opportunity to sort out the complaint. By doing this you will avoid being criticised by the Court.

 

There is a seperate thread in the STICKY section here entitled: "How to Complain to the Court about a Certificiated Bailiff" which should be read first if you are considering a Complaint.

 

PS: As the bailiff is working as an "agent" for the local authority, a copy of your complaint should be sent to the council as well and you need to ensure that you request that it is recorded as a formal complaint.

There are many self employed bailiffs who work on behalf of different companies but these mainly have a certificate and BOND in their individual name.

I have checked the name of a bailiff that has been on 3 occasions to me from Marstonsand his name is not on the list or on the Marstons list. Can I get the money back? Or what other action can I take.

 

Thanks,

Steve

It depends on what debt he was enforcing. If it was an outstanding MAGISTRATES COURT FINE (ie driving without insurance, no tax, or TV licence etc) then HMCS allow the bailiff to work UNCERTIFICATED for 6 months !!

 

Madness I kinow...but I don't make the rules !!!

Hey TT My friendly neighbourhood bailiff Mr W is no longer certified by the looks of it, he was due to have his renewed in march of this year. No sign of him at all :D

I know of at least one bailiff I dealt with in work who isn't certificated but I'm certain I can find a few more from friends. I searched on the site and it seems he still isn't certificated. He is one of the nastiest people I have ever met too, probably had more complaints than anyone. Do you think I should go ahead and report him now or get a bit of a list? What's the best way in your opinion to go about it?

thanks

Hi each and all..

 

It depends on what debt he was enforcing. If it was an outstanding MAGISTRATES COURT FINE (ie driving without insurance, no tax, or TV licence etc) then HMCS allow the bailiff to work UNCERTIFICATED for 6 months !!

 

Is it possiblle to get/gain public access to the employment records of companies who operate this 6 month "probation" period.. can't envisage these companies being very forthcoming about those particular details.

 

When I checked the Register[thanx tomtubby].. the bailiff who instituted my current woes doesn't appear to work for anyone, he doesn't exist!!.. Presuming they did exist.. would it be useful for people to know when these bailiffs started working for their companies relative to this "probation" ???

A good point and one that is asked often.

 

There are even rumours that bailiffs enforcing these unpaid Magistrate Court Fines start working for the company and after 6 months leave and are then re-employed !!!

 

I would suggest writing to the company to say that you are aware theat the bailiff is working as uncertificated and could they please confirm when the bailiff was employed by them. A copy should also be sent to the court.

Thanx for the suggestions tomtubby.. noted. You are one of the people I really need to talk with, but I think I have to start a new thread is that right?

I'm just trying to condence the info for that so as not to present you all with a book. Gonna try and post before midday as I don't have a scanner and see that it's quite important for those who may be able to assist, to see documentation. I would truly appreciate some assistance from yourself and others when I do eventually post. I feel almost helpless right now.. like I'm standing in line to be milked

Thanks for the link to the list of Certified Bailiffs - looks like the Governing Bailiff and the Bailiff assigned to my case from Rossendales are both UNCERTIFIED!! Oh Happy Days!! :) You'd think they'd know better ........

Do you think Governing Bailiffs need to be certified or just certifiable!

 

 

Impecunious

 

Believing in positive mental attitude! :)
