I have read conflicting materials regarding bailiffs anf van attendance fees.

 

My question is (as I have sent a request letter to Rossendales bailiffs fees) can they charge a fee for a van and porter to attend my property but do not have a walking possession and they have not gained entry, taken anything or siezed a vehicle (car I drive is not in my name or owned by me, thank god.)?

 

I accept first fee £24.50

second fee £18

 

can they charge anymore on top giving the statement above?

no they cant charge a van fee if they don't have a walking possession

no the only way they can add more charges to your account now

is if they get a walking possession agreement

A van fee cannot be charged, the fees are specified in Schedule 5 of the Counilc Tax(Administration & Enforcement) Regulaions 1992 SI 613 states that Head C allows for :

For one attendance with a vehicle with a view to the removal of goods (where, following the levy, Reasonable costs and fees incurred

goods are not removed):

 

This means that there must have been a levy for the fee to be charged.

Thanks for the replies, I knew I could count on this forum to give me the answer.

 

I await the the bailiffs reply with glee.

 

one final question on this matter. I have been attended now 5 times, each time no breakdown of council fee owed + bailiffs fees just one figure they have written on the form that they posted in letter box (all different amounts), twice by a man with a van and porter (alledgedly).

 

Will I be visited again or will they give up especially as I have sent the letter of doom (I know my rights, you will NOT gain access)to them?

 

sorry if I waffle, I want to be absolutely sure every t is crossed.

Can i suggest you write to the council with a payment plan stating that you are willing to pay them but not the bailiff as they are trying to over charge you on their fees. Bailiff very rarely give up without a fight and have many devious tricks up their sleves to try and get you to pay them. Ignore the bailiffs by all means but dont ignore this altogether or the council will look at it as if your are a 'wont pay' not a 'cant pay' and you could end up back in court in a bigger mess.

Explain to the council via email or letter what the bailiffs are charging you and make sure you tell them what they can charge you not what they think they can. Its always best to show you are willing rather than just ignoring it. :)

Thanks seanamarts, I have been paying the council and have told them that, they accept the payment but continue to tell me that I must deal with the bailiffs in this matter as it is them that is enforcing the debt.

 

As long as the council is accepting payment, I will continue to pay them direct.
