    • Did you take screenshots or anything of the descriptions that you gave? Do you have any evidence to support you say? In any event, you paid for the insurance, you declared the parts having given the descriptions and they accepted it all on that basis. You have begun the claim procedure yet so I suggest that you do so. We'll see what happens. In any event, it could be said that the various sections are contradictory. Parts relating to vehicles are containing three separate sections and it is relatively difficult to discern which section a particular part should come into. Section 69 of the consumer rights act relates to ambiguities and basically says that an ambiguity must be interpreted in favour of the consumer.  
    • I have booked a Hotel/Flights Package with the above paying a 10% deposit with the balance due a month before travel next August.   On looking at Cancellation Charges they virtually say 100% 84 days out plus.   According to the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements regulations 2018 - termination fees have to be "Reasonable and Justifiable"   I find it hard to comprehend how last minutes charges could fall into the above description.   For example the hotel is available on Booking.com for our dates with no pre-payment and free cancellation up to the day before arrival.   I'm not sure of their arrangement with BA but the tickets we reserved have doubled in price in the last week and could easily be resold.   I can't find any anecdotal evidence or Court Cases relating to them trying to collect Cancellation Charges from people who have not already paid the full balance and cancel. If I were to cancel 8 months out is it likely they would pursue me for the remaining balance.    
    • Hi   Something else I think you need to ask the Insurer for Clarification on is.   That you require full clarification on which clauses within the Terms & Condition of the Policy they are using to refuse payment under the Policy.     I would also consider sending the Insurer a Subject Access Request simply asking for 'ALL DATA' this covers whatever format they hold it in whether it be email/telephone recording/written format etc. (note: if they require you to use their own subject access request form always put 'ALL DATA' on their form)    
    • matters not what they come up with it's statute barred      
    • Revised defence:   The Defendant contends that the particulars of claim vague and are generic in nature. The Defendant accordingly sets out its case below and relies on CPR r 16.5 (3) in relation to any particular allegation to which a specific response has not been made.   1. The Claimant claims £2247.91 is owed under a regulated consumer credit account under reference xxxxxxx. I do not recall the precise details or agreement and have sought verification from the claimant and the claimants solicitor by way of a CPR 31.14 and section 78 request who are yet to fully comply. I dont believe they have provided this yet correctly   2. Paragraph 3 is denied.The Defendant contends that no notice of assignment pursuant to s.136 of the Law of Property Act & s.82 A of the CCA1974 has ever been served by the Claimant as alleged or at all. still stands   3. It is therefore denied with regards to the Defendant owing any monies to the Claimant, the Claimant has failed to provide any evidence of assignment/balance/breach requested by CPR 31. 14, therefore the Claimant is put to strict proof to:   (a) show how the Defendant has entered into an agreement; and (b) show and evidence any cause of action and service of a Default Notice or termination notice; and © show how the Defendant has reached the amount claimed for; and (d) show how the Claimant has the legal right, either under statute or equity to issue a claim;   4. After receiving this claim I requested by way of a CPR 31.14 request and a section 78 request for copies of any documents referred to within the Claimants' particulars to establish what the claim is for. To date they have failed to comply to my CPR 31.14 request and also my section 78 request and remain in default with regards to this request.   5. As per Civil Procedure Rule 16.5(4), it is expected that the Claimant prove the allegation that the money is owed.   6. On the alternative, as the Claimant is an assignee of a debt, it is denied that the Claimant has the right to lay a claim due to contraventions of Section 136 of the Law of Property Act and Section 82A of the consumer credit Act 1974.   7. By reasons of the facts and matters set out above, it is denied that the Claimant is entitled to the relief claimed or any relief.

Hello Forum,

 

We have had a Baliff visit and they kindly left letters regarding unpaid council tax totalling £1287.92 PLUS COSTS.

 

Can anyone tell me what 'PLUS COSTS' mean????

 

There is no way i'm paying the Baliffs any costs!!!!

 

My wife has arranged to see the Baliff on Wednesday so he can come round and do 'Some Paperwork regarding the payment arrangement we are going to put in place.

 

He firstly demanded £180 straight away but we have managed to get this down to £120 and then £80 a month hopefully!!!

He has said he isnt going to take anything, he just wants to get an arrangement in place!!!!

 

Can anyone offer some advice please!!!

 

Regards

First advise is DO NOT LET HIM INTO YOUR HOME, PERIOD !

 

DO NOT sign anything, until you have read it and FULLY understood what it is for !

 

DO NOT sign a walking possession order.... !

 

 

Someone that knows more will be along soon :)

STOP THE VISIT FOR PAPERWORK once he is invited into your home you are on a downward slope to nowhere,

Lock all doors and windows

Remove any car a very safe distance from your home

If you have shed remove anything of value out of it

Take everything laying outside in your garden in doors (garden furniture)

Do not under any circumstances allow him/her into your home and send your proposed payment plan to them in writing using recorded delivery and send a copy to the council.

Do not speak with the Bailiff unless through the letterbox or an upstairs window.

Video his/her visits to your home.

Record any telephone contact from them.

Alarm bells are ringing here Ripper!! :eek: :eek:

 

By all means meet the Bailiff but do it somewhere neutral and NOT inside your premises. Also make sure that all windows and doors are securely locked to your house.

 

There is a statutory schedule of rates/charges for Bailiffs but hopefully someone else will advise on this aspect.

nearly forgot PLUS COSTS this is the trap that caught the mouse and it will catch you as well, Bailiffs even the nice ones ( if they are real people) will convince you that their charges are legal and if you read other posts on this fantastic sight you will soon come to realise there are two types of costs/fees. Those that are invented by the bailiff company and those that are fact.

Hang in there expert help will find you and put you fully in the picture.

Ok so my plan is to ring the Council on Monday and make the £120 payment to them and then tell them i'll be paying £80 a month from then on.

I'm also planning to call the Baiff office and tell them that we wont be meeting with the Baliff and i am dealing straight with the council.

 

Am i corect to do that???

 

Also, am i right in saying that the Baliffs cannot make a forced entry into my home???

Ripper WHOA WHOA WHOA

 

Just a moment here, there are legal and viable charges associated with the bailiff's visit,

 

Did the council go to the courts and get a L O ?

 

You cant just pay the councill £120.00 and then £80.00 per month, as you have had the chance to do that already ( re L O )

 

Do not let the B come and see you, whatever ****e he tells you.

 

In the first instance write a letter to the council and send a copy to the courts, but you will have to get it to them both asap, ask for their ( council) opinion, tell them you burried your head etc and your sorry etc,

 

If they wont agree to what you are offering, then they dont have to help, but that is a whole new ball game which I can help and advise if and when it happens, get your letter in asap, and keep me updated.

 

Cheers

Mr Worried,

 

Yes Council have been to court and got a L.O. We have been in Rent Arrears and cleared them last month. So now in position to pay the Council Tax.

 

So we send a letter to the Council & Courts outlining what we propose to do. E.G £120 straight away & £80 a month!!!??!!!

 

Would it not be better to call the Council or maybe go to the council face to face??? We also have email contact???

 

Wednesday is the Baliff visit, What should i say to them???

 

Regards

 

Ripper

Ripper, you've had some good advice here already.

You write to the council because you want a paper trail. Councils often say 'sorry, it's with the bailiff now, no can do'. Pay them online or via an automated system. Regardless of the councils initial reaction [which may well be favourable] you've already started the process of cutting out the bailiff.

There is no requirement to say anything to the bailiff. Any further communication should be in writing. As has been said, under no circumstances let him set one little wiggly toe inside your property. Ignore any protestations, wild threats and fanciful figures expected in payment.

There are a lot of template letters on this site and, if you have a mooch through the threads you'll soon get a feel for what you need to do.

Good luck.

Rae

As we havn't got much time we are going to produce a letter but we are gonna visit the council on Monday. Present the letter and our offer etc and ask there opinion. Hopefully they will call off the Baliffs and we can go from there.

The answer you will get will be "we can't do anything as it has been passed to the Bailiff, you will have to deal with him instead" or words to that effect.

 

There is no Law anywhere that says you have to deal with the Bailiff. Best advice totally ignore him. Kelcou has given advice above well worth following.

UPDATE

======

 

I went to the council offices yesterday and they took £100 payment from me and said they will ring the Baliffs to update them. They have told the Baliffs not to visit on Wednesday and that an agreement of £80 a month has been reached. This £80 has to be paid to the Baliffs by Card Payment over the phone. If we miss a payment then they visit us again.

 

Cheers for everyones help

A couple of things to remember:

What happens if the phone line is down?

If you are even 1 day late they will chase you.

 

Think other posters have also said that because of the banking system it can take XX days for your payment to reach the Bailiff so you may have to pay it up to a week earlier to ensure payment is then received on time.

If the phoneline is down then we are just unlucky. We will have to make sure that we pay a few days earlier. My payment date is 31st and my wife gets paid on the 26th so it gives us a few days to ring and pay by card.

They wont accept direct debit only a card payment over the phone.

Im not prepared for a Baliff to be knocking at my door every five minutes so this arrangement suites us. And to be honest if we are late paying or we do miss payment then i only have myself to blame!!!!

they will charge you for paying by card over the phone! by either credit or debit card - do you have internet banking? get their bank details and transfer direct so you are not charged
