A friend of mine went to pay his council tax at the council offices albeit a little late about 2 months late, I did tell him off but any hoo, he was told to come back later that afternoon to "have a chat" with the bailiff as the council un-be-known to my friend had passed the debt over to them.

So he went back to have his little chat he paid what was owed (which he thought was the up to date amount) but when he came away he found that he owed more, the whole years amount plus the bailiff has put on their charges of almost £80. Now before I start letter writing I need to know whether bailiffs can charge a fee for this proceedure seeing that the bailiff didnt make a visit to my friend but the other way round. There was a lot of people seeing this bailiff that afternoon, can you imagine how much she earnt just by sitting there for two hours if she charged the same amount for every one she saw that day. even if she charged the correct amount of £24.00 thats £24.00 per visit ranging from 5mins to 10 mins thats over £100 per hour for sitting on her backside for 2 hours. Does she have to be certified also as my friend noticed that she was new, yes he has been there before :rolleyes: silly man. Next visit he is going to ask for a break down on the charges and ask her her name so I can check if she is certified.

Info about this would be greatly recieved:)

My friend is seeing them at the end of the month so questions will be asked face to face but, looking at all his paperwork now it looks like they havnt charged a fee at all.... yet....... so we shall see The extra money on the bill was the councils charges of £50.00 ??? not sure what these are yet.

 

As for Z2K I dont think you need to register but if you email them they will put you on their contact list
