    • i would suggest that you stick to researching on here only. use our search top right for say CTAX or liability order.   you seriously have some wild theories, but those are understandable.   as i have said, there won't be a court hearing you need nor would that help you at all nor are expected to attend, it's not like that, it's merely a rubberstamp exercise .   there is no right of forced entry for bailiffs collecting CTAX debts. the bailiff process is one of a letter which will be entitled Notice of enforcement, this gives you 7 days to pay the sum it outlines with an associated fee of £75 for it being sent. the 2nd step will be a visit, you have no legal remit to engage with them at all, i i would not do so under any circumstances, that visit will add a further £235 fee those are the only things a bailiff can do. the most they can charge is a total of £310.   police do not ever get involved in civil matters like CTAX debt. not sure where you ever got that idea from.   its saturday now so use the W/end wisely, get reading up HERE ONLY it might well pay you on monday to go RING the council CTAX dept and plead poverty etc etc. it might also pay you to find the email address or even better phone number of your local MP and get him involved. they can do wonders.   dx

    • Hi Stu and dx1000uk,   I have done the online assessment and as I suspected I already receive the maximum benefits available to me.   Yes I was referring to the fact that some times I know that non-payment of council tax can lead to imprisonment so thanks for clarifying.   let's say I can't make their demands for payment and they do send bailiffs in, I assume these are the type of bailiffs I can just not let in and then after a certain amount of attempts they give up right? does the council then not send the police round? This is what I can't work out and worries me.   The council already know that I am struggling and can't make the payments but when do I get my chance to tell a court or the police that it's not that I don't want to pay but that I can't pay?    Walshy

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I went to a car dealer on Saturday and looked at a car. I then spoke to the finance manager who said he would check to see if I could get it on finance which he said I could. I then done the forms and that was that. He informed me i could cancel within 14 days if i so wished but never gave me a copy of the credit agreement. I then decided not to go with the car so on the Tuesday and sent them an email saying I did not want it. Today Thursday I got a call from the dealer asking me when I was coming to collect the car I informed them of my email they said they didn't get it. I then told them over the phone that I didn't want it and put me trough to the finance manager who then said I could not cancel when I then reminded him of what he had told me on Saturday. He said he would ring me back as he needed to do something. He didn't call me back I spoke to a solicitor who said I should be able to cancel within 5 working days as it was not signed at the finance companies office.

 

Can anyone offer any advice?

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

i didn't pay any deposit and the guy did tell me that i had 14 days to cancel. no credit agreement was given to me showing the terms and conditions so they are already in breach of the consumer credit act 1974

In order for a credit agreement to be legally executed, Both yourself and the Underwriters of the finance company need to both sign the agreement, So if you signed it on the Saturday and the underwriters didn't sign it until the Monday then on Saturday and Sunday would be the days that the credit agreement would not be legally enforceable. Keep a copy of your emai which you sent to them as this provides the date that you requested to cancel the agreement.

Hi, I am a Finance Manager for a large car dealership. As an above post stated, you have fourteen days to cancel the agreement if it was not signed on trade property. As you signed in the dealership I am afraid you cannot. However, again as someone has stated if you treid to cancel before the deal was executed then you have a right. Did the finance manager give you a copy of the Pre contract and all subsequent documents at the time of sign up? Did you purchase any insurance products, ie gap, ppp ect as these products do have a 14 day cancellation period. Which finance company have you signed with?

Well if we are being pedantic, PPI is cancellable throughout the term of the loan if monthly premium payable.

 

The point i was trying to make is that maybe the poster got wires crossed in respect of the cancellation period. The finance manager may have said you have 14 days to cancel insurance products ect and customer then thought this included the finance agreement.

 

Anyway, if the original poster can let me have the above info i will double check for them.

not being picky

 

most of the insurance crap is front loaded

 

ive yet to come upon a car finance agreement with monthly payments for the insurance crap

On a HP agreement it has to be shown seperately, so the customer knows exactly what they are paying for. Ie if the total monthly payment is £200 per month and included in that is gap insurance of £15.00 per month it has to be shown

 

Car insurance/warranty

 

On a personal loan document they dont need to split them up (This is car finance only) just incase someone comes along and tries to shoot me down.

they do if ppi etc is added

 

On a HP agreement it must be broke down for the customer so they can see how much the car is costing per month, how much the insurance is per month and then a total montly premium. To be honest though some dealers may not follow the rules as they should

 

 

that should also be provided in the statement of price
