He's asking you? The mind boggles.

 

Fact - the debt always belongs to the Council

Fact - Rossendales act as an agent of the Council to recover CT debts

Fact - there is no debt to buy

Fact - the Council can instruct Rossendales to hand back any account regardless of status at any time but they choose not to on many occasions.

 

The Council should have some form of agreement/contract with Rossendales and he should be able to ask about this within the Council. If there are lots of head scratching whenn he does this there is something drastically wrong and this needs investigating.

Basically you owe them the money and what you are trying to do is repay it at a rate affordable to you and keep the wolves from the door, so I suggest you make the payment online or send a cheque with the letter, as it then shows you are genuinely addressing the matter.

Well done. you have indeed won the battle so do not give them the chance to re-group and make into a war. Stick firm with what was written and make those payments to show your serious.:wink:;-)

 

Well done again and good luck.

a further update for u all council have accepted to take the debt back, and accept my affordable repayment result, she is even looking into whether we are entitled to assistance with benefits also,one question i have what will happen with the rossendales charges??? can they still come or will just ask for there charges to be paid by letter, and one further thing can they enforce the van charge, even though they were aware i was vunerable but still turned up anyway to bump up there fees thanks in advance

Well once the Council have taken back the debt, the bailiffs are no longer able to use the Warrant as a reason to chase you. In other words they are trespassing on your property if they call and ask for their charges to be paid since their charges are not included in the Warrant.

 

Their only recourse is to write to you and if that fails, they can take you to Court. To be successful in Court they would have to justify their charges such as for the van. And also they will have to prove that not only were the claimed visits made, but they were made by a certificated bailiff. If they have broken the Law in their dealings with you, they may be reluctant to go to Court

 

If they do write to you make sure that you ask them about their charges and put them to strict proof as to who called. If they don't do that, but do in Court, the Judge will not take kindly to those actions.

I'm so happy to read that, thewakers7. I can't add to what lookinforinfo stated except to underline the fact you shouldn't worry about them.

Very best wishes to you.

Very well done. I am pleased for you. It should also help to give you confidenceto deal with other matters in the future. There are lots of people in the community at large who would have given up, so give yourself a pat on the back.
