hi there,

 

my mother is registered disabled, and has had her car seizes from an address other than the address listed upon the warrent.

 

1st of all the car is registered to a disabled person and has a disabled tax disc, and insured for a disabled user only.

 

can a bailiff seize this car in england (not scotland)? if not can you tell me where i can find a copy of the legislation to show this.

 

also what can be done about him seizing the car from another address, and using threating words to my grandparents about calling the police and making it seem like they can force the seizer of the car? (again can you tell me where i can find the legislation)

 

my mother has also just undergone a major OP to have her knee replaced, and thus now cannot get to her hospital appoitments because the car has been seized.:mad:

 

help please!

The answer is no they cannot take a car that either has a blue badge in it or registered as a disabled vehicle and also your grandparents are classed as vunerable so should of checked the car in the first place to see that it was a disabled vehicle.

Can I also ask what the debt is for and how much the bailiff was asking for. had your grandparents been notified that this was going to happen.

Im guessing it was for a parking fine. I am 100% positive that they cannot do this unless the car was on hire purchase and the company wanted it back through non payments.

I'm sorry but in order to provide an answer I will need a bit more info.

 

What was the name of the company?

 

What was this debt for?

 

Has you mother moved addressed?

 

If a parking ticket, which local authority?

 

Did you receive a Notice of Seizure of Goods & Inventory?

 

How much was the debt and how much are the bailiff demanding?

 

PS: NO...the bailiff cannot remove a vehicle displaying a valid disabled badge. In addition due to her disability, she is classed as "vulnerable" according to the National Standartds for Enforcement Agents ( that ALL bailiffs and their companies MUST adhere to) and therefore the bailiff SHOULD have returned this debt.
