i've recently been having problems regarding an old council tax bill that has now been settled with the council so nothing is in arrears . The problem i am having is that the baliffs are still trying to get me to pay them £186.50 in charges even though there is no outstanding debt is this allowed? What are they legally allowed to claim from me?

Hi Whipsey

 

Rossendales hmmmm, they dig in their heels especially Les Holbourn (cheap as chips).

I had the same problem a few month ago, I simply called my local authority and spoke to the manager of the correct department, then I explained the whole situation, I insisted that she got in touch with the bailiff and that she deals with it, I called her a few hrs later and 'bingo' she had sorted it.

 

Good Luck

they can only charge for 2 visits £42.50 in total

I take they have never been in your house

have the left you a NOTICE OF SEIZURE OF GOOD AND INVENTORY

 

bailiffs are very good at doing a levy on any car outside a house and charging a walking possession fee levy fee and a van fee

they have made a fair few visits but never actually knocked onthe door its normally a case of post a letter then leg it

 

Hi

Were the problems (debt) to the councill, paid as a result of comms from the bailliff?. or had you settled yr poll tax before the bailliffs started to comm with you?

 

I done some work for a bailliff and he was a proper arse (loved himself)

and he said they will always chase charges even if accts are settled, he also told me they told loads of lies and that he had been bankrupt needless to say when he paid me I made a phone call ..nudge nudge...

e-mail the bailiff company also put it in writing and send recorded delivery

£186.50 there is something wrong if they are trying to charge you that and there ids no walking possession agreement

if you have the bailiffs name check to see if he is certificated

On line search to check if a Bailiff is Certificated

it was settled after the baliffs started to communicate

 

So are you saying that the visits made you think twice..hence payment followed?

I would asume that there will be something to pay, I would write to them once your happy with the advice you get from her ..( letter anybody) and then contact them dare I say with an offer of payment...

Ive just checked on the hmrc website and he's not certified with rossendales

Ministry of Justice Public Register of Bailiffs on 020 3334 6355

then i suggest you phone the above number to confirm he is not a bailiff

 

if he is not then phone the council and tell them Rossendales

are employing people who are not bailiffs to collect council tax arrears if he is not a bailiff then your fees are nil
