    • 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.
    • Pubs all seem to be doing a roaring trade around here. It does make me feel uncomfortable but At least they are finally making some money. Our area, the South West never really got hit badly by the pandemic. Wiltshire has regularly seeing zero confirmed cases and deaths. So we will have to see how opening pubs really pans out!     
    • Thanks for filling in the forum sticky and well done on reading up.  The more info. we all take in, the more we know what the real legal position is and how to fight sharks like CEL.   As you'll have seen, CEL are one of the most dishonest and greediest of the PPCs.  If you had indisputable proof that your car was on Mars at the time, they'd find a way to reject your appeal!  Sadly POPLA has become more & more useless, as your experience shows.  Instead of managing the car park in a professional manner, it's highly likely that CEL don't illuminate the signs at night deliberately in order to catch out motorists like yourself.   The good news is that the only person who can make you pay this "debt" is a judge, after a court case.  So from now on ignore any begging letters from CEL and/or their rent-a-threat DCAs, but do not ignore a Letter Before Action/Claim which is a formal notice of intention to start court proceedings.  However, don't waste your time while ignoring them, build a case.  Like dx says, look up the planning permission.  If the KFC is local to you, go back in the evening and get pix of their pathetic signage.  Please post up what you wrote in your appeal too.   As a belt & braces approach, get on to KFC and demand they cancel the ticket.  Show all the proof you were a genuine customer and point out that you stayed an extra 19 minutes because you were consuming more food & drink!  However, what we often find is that the bod who runs the local branch often doesn't have much power, so don't faff around.  If the local branch don't cancel within 48 hours get on to to the area manager, and if you get no joy there in 48 hours go to CEO level.   It's highly likely that if you had complained to KFC straight away and ignored CEL's kangaroo court procedure that the matter would have been resolved there & then, but hey, what is done is done and you still have a great chance of seeing off these fleecers.
    • if you are twisting sideways to takaway pubs? rather than opening pubs as you initially referred   ... thats always been cheaper at off licences and supermarkets isn't it, and rather defeats the point of pubs, and restaurants?   WHAT are you actually saying/claiming/suggestion if anything?
    • They have got a plan https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/restaurants-offering-takeaway-or-delivery   It seems pretty clear to me.

    • 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

Hi, I received a visit to day from a chap from High Court Enforcement with a warrant to remove goods from my home. I did not invite him in! He gave me aome paperwork and said that one of my creditors had taken high court action against me because of a default on a ccj. What should I do? He told me to contact them by letter explain my circumstances and he would recommend bankruptcy to his client.

I do owe the money and due to illness have not been able to keep up payments. I think I will have to go bankrupt but I did not know that the creditor had gone to the high court for non-payment. The first I knew was when the chap turned up today.

Is there anything I can do or should I just do as he says?

I would suggest that you take some FREE advice before going into bankruptcy as it does have serious consequences for you in the future. CAB can probably help too. Also, think about making a sensible offer of repayment. Whatever you do don't let the bailiff into your house and if you have a car keep it away from your property

2 things.

a,the baliff has no right to give you advice and you did the right thing by not letting him in your home,once in they can then break into your house if they see an open window at a further date and theres nothing you can do about it so best not to let them in at all,they have no right of access even with the police there,do not let anyone tell you any differant.

b,go here,they will give you all the help you want,they are very good and have helped me through my br.

 

good luck

Another thing - many High Court Enforecment Officers are not certificated bailiffs, and they DO NOT have more powers like some of them will tell you

Not strictly true as, amongst others, they do have the power to force entry on commercial premises if they have a valid WoE unlike CC bailiffs

 

This is why creditors transfer up to the High Courtt for enforcement

The initial thread toddle2u mentioned his home address and that was what I was referring to. You are correct about the commercial premises they do have power to force entry and do not have to be certificated unlike bailiffs of the proper kind

1.the bailiff did give advice. he said he would recommend b/ruptcy to client. this is done if debtor cant pay and office cant find any assets to remove.

2. there does not have to be an open window at a later date. If you doors unlocked or a window is open, it is peacefull entry on a first attendance. if the office gained peacfull entry on the first attendance he can legally force entry the second time. if need be by calling in a locksmith or breaking a window (officer must arrange for it to be secured at debtors cost if debtor has not arrived by the time the officer leaves).

plus he can force entry into any outbuilding on a first attendance and remove any goods he finds.

That the bailiff says above is absolutely correct - once entry has been gained peacefully - forced entry can be made later
