    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry.

    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • 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 all i could really do with some help in writing a letter or how to re draft a subject access report with a view to unlawful charges on my account!

 

In a nutshell i am currently paying rossendales for last years CT only £300 left to go :) they seem to have been ok with me although i have paid them £700 in just over a month. Not sure if their fees are legal or not but they did get access to my garage :( and left me with a WPO unsigned by me.

 

This years CT has been passed to them but as yet no contact as i am still waiting on the councils response to taking back the debt before they visit, will keep you posted on that.

 

However Equita are chasing me for a previous property (different council) i have wrote to them and informed them i am paying the council direct and not them as i believe the figure the bailiff gave me is wrong and they are cheating me with their fees. 995.81 for a 746.32 liability. I've paid the council 100 direct and will do so again this month and hopefully they will take it back.

 

The reason for the request is i think Equita have over charged me for fees on liabilty orders in 05/06 and 06/07, my own fault for keep letting it get to this stage but i just feel that as things are now being paid i want to make sure that ive not overpaid the bailiffs in the past.

 

How do i find out what they have charged me on those years because when i rang them they denied ever having previous years accounts.

 

Thanks in adveance and sorry for being so long winded. :-x

the first thing you do is write to them and ask them to supply you with a breakdown of charges on all account collected by them

send the letter by recorded deliver

you can also e-mail them for this info but it will have to be followed up by letter

Do i just use a standard subject access report? Or does it need wording differently becaues its multiple years im after, equally is just one charge of £10.00 for all three years?

 

Thanks

you don't have to send for a subject access request yet just send a normal letter asking for for a breakdown of charges on accounts collected by them for the years in question

 

if they don't sent them then you sent a subject access request

Thamks Hallowitch have now sent the letter requesting a breakdown of bailiff charges on previous account, spoke to the council first to see which accounts had been passed to Equita and the amounts on the liability's. I'm sure i ended up paying far more than the amounts the council wanted back then i just paid the bailiffs off in one go didn't know about forums like this.

 

Now then regarding the rossendales situation for last years CT. :confused:

 

First communication from them 25.03.09 standard NOTICE of REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS stating amount due 1264.09 pushed through letterbox, i stupidly ignored this as at the time i couldn't pay anything.

 

Then next thing phone call and texts on 08.06.09 so i rang they very threatening on the phone but agreed to pay the lot by the following day So when i get home that evening i have another NOTICE OF REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS with the same amount on and a NOTICE OF DISTRESS/WPO listing items in my gagrage which was left unlocked. I didn't pay them anything until the 12.06.09 which was two hundred and ive made further payments of 700 since.

 

What concearns me after reading posts on the forum is that the WPO form UNSIGNED by me and just pushed through the door has a figure of 1264.09 on it, breaking down the fees of 1st and 2nd visits a levy fee and VAN fee. From what i have read should this levy and inventory not be dated 25.03.09 if thats when it was taken as the first letter also has this figure on it.:?:

 

I'm sorry to make it sound so confusing any help is greatly appreciated.

Anybody just wanted to know what the time in between first and second visits and levys etc needs to be as it would appear according to the paperwork i have they were always going to charge me 1264 right back from march but the notice of seizure or what ever its called is dated june with the same figures.

 

How do i know when the actual levy was done?

 

Thanks for any help recieved.:)

Im sorry to say this but.... Bailiffs love people like you :) not your fault ;)

 

Your best bet is to see what their reply is and see if what they have charged you. Thats if they give you that info in the first place. If they dont then you need to write back and also stating that you have written to the council in question disputing the amounts that they have charged. You have to remember here that these bailiffs are working on behalf of the council and the council are responsible for the actions of the bailiff company. So get a letter off to them as soon as you get a reply from the bailiff.

Im sure they do beacause im the kind of fool that buries my head in the sand until it gets to a stupid stage then end up paying all the charges no questions asked.

 

Thank goodness for the people on these forums that actually stand up for peoples rights. Must admit i was a little scared after the first few knocks at the door dosen't bother me know, just want to get it sorted but pay up on my terms (reasonable of course). Due to the fact im getting bored of playing hide the car every night, exercise doing me good though:grin:.

 

Cars not even registered in my name but dont want the hassle of it being clamped anyway.

 

Can't believe how much these people really lie and cheat with their fees!! :mad:

I fully appreciate all the help i'm recieving and when all this is sorted will donate the money refunded from the robbing b*^&($ds. The accounts that ive paid up over the years are done and dusted just begrudge paying them more than i need to now.

 

Its not financial reaons im trying to claim back the fees its principal and like everyone else i really hate bullys!:evil:
