*Could someone clarify the fees that bailiffs are allowed to charge.I've gone through the paperwork that the B&S bailiff left, and think that I've been conned.Here's a breakdown of what i was charged

 

Council tax/ Non domestic rates and cost ref No. ******** £18.00

Levy fee £24.50

Council tax/non domestic rates and cost ref No.********£1,176.19

Levy fee £58.00

Redemption of goods fee £24.50

 

 

All this is copied of the paperwork left called Memorandum of amounts due.Obvisously the large amount is for the community charge but what about the rest?

 

Also there are no dates/times indicating if they had called before.

 

Thanks

TP

was it a distress warrant? if it was then they can't charge a levy fee and there is no redemption fee set out in distress warrant's fees

 

This is interesting as A Notice of Distress is all I had received from Newlyn, as a form of levy. Total incompetence. Added charges. Clamped my car, took my car and 4 days later sent me a letter Notice prior to removal of Goods! Don't think incompetence sums these idiots up!
