rubbish rubbish and more rubbish getting spouted from a bailiffs mouth

1) he cant come back in 48hrs and remove goods

2) he can talk all day the most he can charge for this visit is £24.50

if this is his first visit

 

did you get his name is he certificated

On line search to check if a Bailiff is Certificated

have a good read round do not under any circumstances let him in

if you have a car park as far away from your home as you can

do not leave ant hying in the garden not even a spade the bailiff will levy on it and this will add more charges to your account

dose any of this fit your circumstances

Those who might be potentially vulnerable include:

  • the elderly;
  • people with a disability;
  • the seriously ill;
  • the recently bereaved;
  • single parent families;
  • pregnant women;
  • unemployed people; and,
  • those who have obvious difficulty in understanding, speaking or reading English

keep everything locked including the shed

 

what gets me though is in the letter it says he called today with transportation to remove your goods

he can call in a jumbo jet if he likes is charges are the same

 

my first time of having bailiffs at my door which it is

 

i wish you hadn't told him that:)

 

also told me he didn't want to stay too long today so i could find someone to lend me the money as the time he spend talking to me costs me more

 

Now the thinks he can charge/and say what he likes because you don't know any different

 

did you check to see if he is certificated

you are doing the right thing writing to the council if the council refuse to help get in touch with your M.P.

all letters should be sent by recorded delivery to the bailiff and the council

make a copy to keep for your own records

 

there is not much you can do about the bailiff coming to your house

the bailiff wants a levy thats how they make there money and your job is to stop him getting a levy

this is the template letter for sending to the bailiffs/ council amend for your circumstances it is important to say that you are not refusing to pay

 

Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: Your Reference

 

I understand XXX Council has appointed you to recover my Council Tax Liability arrears for 200x of £xxxx.

 

Firstly I would like to make you aware that I am fully aware of my rights and you will not gain entry to my home under any circumstances to levy goods and I know the fees allowed under statute and when these fees can be applied.

 

Due to my circumstances I am unable to pay this in one payment. I advocate a payment schedule of 24 months with 23 months payments at £xx.xx and the balance of £xx.xx to be paid on the 24th month to cover the principle. I understand this may seem a long time but this is a realistic offer that is affordable to me and will allow me to pay future bills issued for Council Tax without them falling into arrears. A greater amount would cause me real and actual hardship.

 

I am able to pay the above amount on the xx of each month, as an act of good faith I have enclosed the first payment chq number xxxxxx. Please advise how you would like future payments made. My personal preference is payment by Standing Order.

 

It should be noted that I am not at any point refusing to pay this debt but only asking for a fair payment period considering my circumstances. And if you are unable to accept my offer I will place the money aside each month until such a time the council take the account back into their management, when I will make payment of the set aside money to the council.

 

Please also send an itemised statement of account that clearly shows what charges have been added and what for, you are required in statute to supply this information and I look forward to this within 14 days.

 

I am sending the council a copy of this letter and requesting that it be filled with my account for further reference.

 

I hope the above meets your approval and I look forward to your timely reply by letter.

 

Yours faithfully,
