    • Hello all,    I have received a letter from Advantis in regards to an overpayment of carers allowance I received when I got a job whilst I was caring for my mother. I did not know I had to inform them etc.    Long story short, I had a compliance phonecall with carers and nothing more was said.    I stopped caring for my mum shortly after and cancelled my carers allowance too.    I was employed for 4 months at the beginning of 2018.    Apparently the DWP and carers have sent letters but I haven't responded so they've gone through Advantis to recover the amount owed. I moved house shortly after cancelling everything and had no contact from them at all.    They sent letters to my previous address so they told me that's why it's been passed onto Advantis.    Today DWP told me that the only thing they can do is take payment in full, or deal with Advantis to come up with a payment plan.    I spoke to Advantis who asked me to pay in full or in two installments, I refused and they then said they've put my account on hold for 30 days whilst I go away and work out my monthly income etc so they can go through an affordability assessment to work out how much I can pay back and how often.      What shall I do? DWP tell me there's nothing they can do as it's been passed onto Advantis.    Advantis tell me they are working on behalf of the DWP... Nobody will tell me who owns the debt.     What shall I do?    Thank you all in advance for your amazing help.     
    • Hi, I have just received a pcn from Euro Car Parks saying that my car was in one of their car parks for 13 mins without making a payment. The reason being is that my husband was waiting for me, but where he thought I would only be 5 mins I was longer because of health issues and I had to take a rest. As if this wasn't enough, unbelievably I have just received ANOTHER notice saying I had not paid for a ticket on the 9th of September. I would like to mention the car park charges are so cheap, at £1:20 all day, it would be insane not to pay. We have used this car park only around 4 times and have always paid, excepting th time the car was waiting for 13mins. What a shock I have got receiving these notices. I wonder if I accidentally keyed in my registration incorrectly? Please can someone advise.
    • I also have a similar problem with Advantis for DWP overpayment of carers allowance. I've only just moved into my own house and they've sent a letter asking for my whereabouts and a business matter that needs my urgent attention. I have found out from the DWP and carers that I owe £1,131 and Advantis want me to go through an affordability assessment.    I am not sure who owns the debt, DWP or Advantis and where I stand with this 
    • I've just had this emailed from CarMoney. I'm so confused, I really don't know what I'm supposed to be doing and with whom. "Apologies for the delay in response. I have spoken to Oodle regarding the complaint and unfortunatly, they would require an independent report to be carried out on the vehicle. The burden of proof would lie with yourself.   I can certainly help by giving you the details of Scotia, who is the company that we use."   Everything I've read says that I did the right thing by exercising my rights under the CRA 2015 with the dealer. That was done within the six-months, so the burden of proof should be on the dealer still? Or am I completely wrong??
    • Heard nothing for 6 & half years until last week. A big fat letter from Barclays upholding my PPI claim which had gone to the Ombudsman (news to me) and enclosing all the waffle and finally at the end a cheque for £3659.20 and advising that £454.85 was taxed - this I can reclaim as I don't pay tax currently.

evening all,

 

I apologise if this has been covered before.

 

Someone I know has had a bailiff chasing him for a magistrates fine, the bailiff hasn't levied or been into the house.

 

If he pays the fine directly to the court (i.e online) will this cancel the warrant and hence the bailiffs authority to seize goods (i.e his fees then become small claims territory?)

 

Many thanks

 

Matt

Recent posts by others who have been in a similar situation suggest that the Court returns any payments made by cheque.

 

Many thanks

sorry Ploddertom, maybe I'm being thick here, but did you mean that if you pay by cheque they will return it, I'm going to pay online.

 

Many thanks

Hi madmatt, yes I suspect that is what he meant. And I conclude that he suggests online payment may be more successful although I cannot guarantee that!

One observation I note is that in your OP it is someone you know who has a problem, in your last post it is you who is going to pay online. Freudian slip? :)

I'd be interested to know if there where any other personal circumstances that may be of interest? Such as benefits, disability, illness etc.

Either way, good luck and best wishes.

Rae.

Good evening everyone,

 

Been a while since I posted on here, anyway;

 

My ex-wife has managed to get herself a speeding fine that was sent to a previous address.

 

The Bailiff, from Marstons Holdings has been handwriting the usual drivel about coming with a locksmith on the phone until I got involved,

 

She has been to the police about the threats, the bailiff has admitted that they do not hold an order to force entry and now seems to have backed off a bit.

 

My question's are;

 

a) The only bailiff I can find whose name remotely resembles the name on the paperwork is different (i.e abbreviated)......is this an item of interest

 

b) The name that appears on the register is listed as working for M^&%tons group and she claims to work for M*&stons holdings, again is this of interest

 

c) She has been discussing the case with my ex-sister in-law and my son, is this a potential breach of the DPA?

 

 

Many thanks in advance for your valued opinions

 

Madmatt

Has she paid the speeding fine?


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

If the Enforcement Agent holds a magistrates warrant, no further "warrant" to force entry is needed as the power to force entry is contained within the warrant he already holds.

 

No, the name thing is not an issue. Many people are registered for an EA certificate using full names and often enforce using a more commonly used name. But it is worth checking it is actually him and that he does hold a certificate.

 

Regarding the DPA, the EA can state who he is, the company he works for, what he is there to enforce, how he is going to enforce it and ways to stop enforcement. He shouldn't be giving balances out to 3rd parties though without the debtors permission.

 

Marston holdings and Marston's group are one and the same.

 

And if this is indeed a hmcts fine for speeding, then the bit about a locksmith.....isn't drivel.

Thank you for your replies, with regard to the name issue they have modified/changed their surname....with regard to the DPA, the bailiff and the office dicussed full details with third parties...

 

Marstons have now admitted they have not got a paragraph 15 (Force entry) warrant

I am sorry but what is a Paragraph 15 Forced Entry warrant !!

 

With an unpaid court fine, there is NO provision for a separate warrant to 'force entry'. The reason for this being that the warrant of control itself permits the right to Force Entry.

 

I will repeat one more time.....if the debt being enforced in an unpaid magistrate court fine, then the is no requirement for a separate 'forced entry' warrant.

Who was the third party and what is their connection to the case?

 

Yes, they will fully admit they don't have a paragraph 15 "order" as they don't need one. Just forget about needing a separate warrant, you will just waste your time.
