    • If the windows had already been made and were ready to install, he would surely have offered to do it without further delay.   Instead of arguing the toss with you, why is he not trying to sort a day to install and rescue the situation.   Despite the good reviews for the company, I'm not impressed but see what Bankfodder suggests.
    • Thanks DX, I've read these a few times over. I'm feel like I'm pretty confident on the subject.   Do you think I should play dumb and quote the law of property act etc anyway?   The only thing I'm not sure about is the process now, I'm obviously very inexperienced in this and I'm not 100% sure what the sherrifs order is asking of me (post #53). Or maybe I don't need to do anything at all because I'm not submitting any documents as evidence?   The order is post #53 and I'm not sure what they mean by written submissions? is there a form or correct format/process for doing this?   Again, appreciate the help DX and sorry for all the Qs.  
    • Hmm, that is a challenge, my computer ability is limited to copy and paste, which I have included below. Is it very important? I can try and find out but I have the email reply and that is all, sorry   Friday, October 23, 2020 5:28:53 PM To: enquiries@idealwindowsolutions.co.uk <enquiries@idealwindowsolutions.co.uk> Subject: Order cancellation RF14127D   Dear Ideal Window Solutions,   On the 11 of June I signed a contract with you to deliver and install double glazed windows. I was promised to get it done within 8 weeks. The timing was very important to me, I made it very clear to you, and this was the main reason I chose your company. For all kind of reasons your promises did not materialised. After a number of phone calls and emails between us I have decided to cancel my contract with you. I am not prepared to wait any longer, also I have no intentions to install windows during rainy winter time.  Could you be so kind to refund me my deposit of £100 pounds. If after winter time you will get your problems with your suppliers solved please give me a call, maybe we can try again. I will need  new windows anyway. Kind regards,
    • An update - The salesman who has dealt with most of this is off on Mondays which never helps and the senior service person there who I spoke to last week is also off all week.   I got a call from a service advisor today confirming the booking but was concerned I was waiting - explained (again) the story and he understood but on his job card, only had that he had to investigate the tyres and not necessarily replace.  Someone either is not communicating or I've been told lies.  I have gone through the recording and the salesman clearly states he has gone to upper management, discussed it and we will be replacing the tyres and battery to sort everything out.   Sat nav will be resolved tomorrow and they'll be looking at the broken sun visor.  I have also emailed regarding the gearbox service - I have a good friend working at Audi servicing at another group and he had mentioned Audi should be carrying out servicing if due within 4 months or so and this was.  I raised it pre-collection a number of times and was shutdown each time with "if a service needs to be done, it will be done"   Fast forward to today when I got the job card to sign in advance, it clearly states: Date: 20/10/2020 (our pickup day) Carried out MPC & oil service Haldex Reqs gear oil service.   The Gearbox service is due at 38k and the car was sold at 35500 well within the 4k which is probably why their own systems have flagged it. Haldex I'm not sure - this seems to be every 20k I think so due in 4.5k.  Oil service I can't see how they did it as the service history we got from them (verified by another dealer) was from September.   Lets see what they say tomorrow - I have flagged it with the service advisor from today but got no response.   Ironically, the friend did mention they've had other POA buyers book their car in elsewhere only to be told various handover bits were not done - I thought it was typical dealer rivalry talk but maybe there is truth in it.

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Hi all

First post so bear with me i have a bailiff on at me done a search and the only one with his surname is from another court up north and with a different company. I'm sure he will come back very arrogant man shall i ask him ? Haven't let him in and don't intend to.

Sorry forgot it about council tax arrears so much info on this site trying to take it all in

 

welcome to cag there is a lot to take in but if you follow the basic rules

don't let them get a levy and pay the council direct on-line then you should be OK

you may like to start your own thread

 

phone this number to confirm if he is certificated and to what company(if self employed there wont be a company against his name and can work for any company)

Ministry of Justice Public Register of Bailiffs on 020 3334 6355

 

this is the important part

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!!

 

if you find out that he is not certificated to the company he is working for

write a letter to the bailiff company and ask them to confirm in writing the date the bailiff was certificated to work for them and the name of the court he was certificated at give them 14 days from date of letter to reply

 

 

send a copy of the letter you send to the bailiff company to the council

and request that the letter be filed with your account for future reference.

 

send all letters recorded delivery

Had a visit from Rossendales today, their bailiff in charge is MR Chapman! No first name apparently so I cannot check whether he is registered.... There are two Mr Chapmans listed with Rossendales, so chance are he is registered. Has anyone had any letters from this one. Would like to know for sure.

This is the second bailiff to call for this account, the first one B Deplacido, signed his name as a couple of squiggly line on the WPO, and nothing in there bears any resemblance to what a B or D might look like in a signature. Now this second has come round and I cant even check if he is certificated!

Thanks

Hi Just curious about whether bailiffs or HCEOs can moonlight if certified and why Sherforce doesn't appear on the list - which has, I noticed, been updated in the last two weeks! If a bounty hunter is certified as self-employed should this list specify that. If he is listed as employed by one company should he be working for another, can he be leased out?

this should answer some of your questions

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.

Hi Hallowitch

Yes, I read that but asked the question as I see the name of a particular bailiff still tied to the stated on the previous list before his licence was renewed recently. The list has just been updated because when I checked it for this guy two weeks ago, his licence had just run out. It's obviously just been renewed but for the same company and he's definitely working for another company as I have papers to prove that. Whether that other company is tied to the company he's with, is a holding company, a parent company or whatever, I don't know. Do you know if there is any way of checking whether the licence a bailiff or HCEO holds applies to him as a person or as an employee for a specific company?

as far as i know a certificated bailiff can only work for the company he is employed by its the company that pays the bond unless he self employed and if this was the case there would be no company name next to his and he would have paid the bond himself

if you leave it till after the holidays(the bloke who deals with this is on holiday ) you can phone the Ministry of Justice Public Register of Bailiffs on 020 3334 6355

 

he doesn't have to be certificated to work for a HCEO so in theory he could work as a certificated bailiff for 1 company and for sherforce as hceo but I'm not sure if they are allowed to do that

Hi Hallowitch

Thanks for the reply. It's the bit about working for one company and acting for Sherforce at the same time that I want to know about. It's strange in more ways than one though as he's way out of what I would have thought to be his geographical area. There's no hurry about this, it's now just an excercise in curiosity to see if it leads to any info I can find a use for. I'll do as you suggest and contact the guy you suggested after the holidays.

Best wishes

Tippy

I am puzzled! IF, a bailiff changes his name to get around certification, what about the rest of his personal documentation?

 

If he uses a slightly or different name. Surely if found out there would be serious consequences when standing in court?

 

Does he change name Tax stuff, Nat Conts, Passport etc?

First of all, What an excellent site. Ive gone from not knowing where i stand to having an excellent understanding of my rights.

 

I have a question regarding the website where i check a Bailiff and what company he is certified with.

 

A bailiff has called to my mums house regarding outstanding Council Tax.

We didn't let him in, and he posted a removal notice through the letterbox on the 19th Jan and also on 21st Jan.

On this removal notice he has signed it with his last name only, Having searched the website I have found one match for this last name however, the website says he works for a different company than the one he has issued this removal notice for.

 

His second name isnt what i would call a common name and the court who has issued his certification is roughly 40 miles away which suggests to me ive found the right guy as it is easily driving distance.

 

Any information on how to nail this guy and make him worry his little backside off like he has been doing to my mum would be greatly appreciated. I wouldnt mind, mum phoned him and offered a payment plan but he wanted ALL or at least HALF of the nearly £400 outstanding from a single mum who is currently on benefits.. The cheek, i felt like opening the door and introducing him to my complaints department that i keep at the back of the door !!!!!

 

Thanks in advance

phone the

Ministry of Justice Public Register of Bailiffs on 020 3334 6355 or the court on Monday to confirm that he hasn't changed to the new company until he changes to his new company he shouldn't be collecting council tax debt more importantly he cant charge fees

the company pays a bond (insurance) and when he changes company's the old company cancel this bond he needs this bond to work

 

 

“Change of bailiff’s name, address, etc

 

7A.

(2) If there is any change in the relevant details, the bailiff shall without delay give

written notice of the change to the issuing county court and produce his certificate (the old certificate) to the court officer of the issuing county court.

 

 

(3) When a bailiff gives notice and produces the old certificate in accordance with paragraph (2) above, the Judge of the issuing county court shall issue to the bailiff a replacement certificate reflecting the change in the relevant details but in all other respects

 

 

(including, without limitation, the date of expiry of the certificate the same as the old certificate.

 

 

 

(4) When a replacement certificate is issued in accordance

 

with paragraph (3) above,the court officer shall retain and cancel the old certificate.

Christ Hallowitch wasnt expecting a reply at this time in the morning, but thank you very much !

 

I did see that number mentioned earlier on a few times, but wanted clarification before I went ahead and rang it.

 

From what I can see on the 2 removal notices my mum has, he has not added any fee's which seems odd to me if he has been to the property twice in 3 days and on one of those days it was well out of normal working hours.

 

I will give this number a ring first thing on monday morning.

 

Once again thank you very much for that speedy reply !! :)

haha :D

If im honest my mum is easily persuaded and pushed around by people like bailiffs, if it wasnt for me she would have let the guy in to take the lot :(

It is this forum i have got 99% of the information and resources from.

The bailiff is just trying the scare tactic, but mum is falling for it, i can see how worried she is. So im getting what i can together to show her where she stands and that this guy has no rights what so ever to come in unless invited or doors/windows are left open.

 

I think im going to get her to make payments to the council directly via there phone service every week, as she asked them nicely to take the debt back but gave the usual "its in the bailiffs hands now" speech.

 

I will ring that number and create a separate thread once i know a little more as i may need some advice on the situation as a whole.

 

Thanks yet again

Hi everyone,

 

I have only posted on this site a few times but think I may be using it more often now. I have a question that I know you clever people will know the answer to.

 

Rundle and Co. Limited, Birchalls Limited and CCS Enforcement Services Limited are a group of Certificated Bailiffs. I have had letters from a Bailiff on Birchalls Limited letter headed paper but the Bailiff is nor registered on the HM Courts Service as working for Birchalls he is registered as working for Rundle and Co. He also called me today and said that he was from Rundle and Co but my letters are all from Birchalls.

 

Is this right? Can he do that?

Well i have contacted the number i was advised to this morning.

They had not received anything from this bailiff to say he had changed company but advised me to ring the court that issued his Certification.

 

The court then confirmed that they had been told he has moved company :(

And there was me thinking i had him for a minute... Ah well, thanks for all the help anyway was much appreciated.

A baiiff has an obligation to keep the court up to date with his or her details, which includes his or her business address, but when this is not done the Certificate remains valid. The three companies you mentioned are under common ownership and it looks like they pass work around: while there shouldn't be confusion about which company is enforcing a particular warrant or order, the bailiff's Certificate doesn't have to show that same company.

Chandlers are Bailiffs, believe the online register has gremlins unless of course the equipment has been seized by a Bailiff.
