I received contact from a bailiffs for an overdue council tax bill from 4 years ago (which to be honest i didn't know i owed). I contacted the bailiff and the council involved immediately stating i would pay the amount in full on my pay day (which was less than 2 weeks away). I send a letter confirming this to the council and the bailiffs also asking the bailiffs to make no more future visits and i would pay their first visit fee (i was also told on the phone as i intend to pay no visits would be made until after this date). The next evening someone hand posted a pack through my door. It was the bailiffs stating i now owed them for two visits!! And the outstanding bill.

 

I contacted the bailiffs saying that i would not pay this charge as i was informed there would be no further visits and i also re faxed them my original letter. 1 day before i was due to pay the council i received a letter through the post staying the Council has no agreement in place with me and so I had to pay them in full including the new charges. I called the council and paid them as promised I also paid the bailiff for their first visit, but told them i would not be paying the second fee (this btw is only £18! - but i don't want to pay - cause i don't believe i should). They said I owed them the fee as the council had no formal agreement with me! I believe i was fair and could've refused to pay all fees!

 

I am still receiving calls from them. Do i have to pay them this fee? Where do i stand?

try phoning

 

Ministry of Justice Public Register of Bailiffs on 020 3334 6355

i cant find rossendales on the register either

 

send a fax to the bailiffs saying that if they continue to pursue you for the £18 2nd visit you will file a form 4 complaint to the court as you have proof you sent a fax to them offering full payment on xxxxx date and the bailiff 2nd visit charge was after the date of the fax

Just a quick q. If i paid the full debt off to the council, can the bailiffs still chase charges?

yes as soon as its passed to the bailiff and the bailiff leaves a hand delivered letter to say he has called then you have bailiffs charges

can they use the [paid off] liabilty order to enforce the charges though?

at one time i dont think they could, but has that changed now?
