Hi there,

 

I'm quite worried that I've had a CCJ, but can't be sure. This sounds ridiculous, granted, but it happened over my council tax in 2004.

 

I split with my partner, registered for council tax, but no letter arrived. The council said they'd sent it- they hadn't. i wrote letters, emails and chased them, but found out later that they had been billing ME for MY council tax at my partners address! They carried on doing it and it was quite an acrimonious split from my partner and he was not passing on my mail. I was only 20 at the time, and when I left the house, thinking no more of it and moved back to my parents for uni, one day a bailiff turned up at my house demanding £800 of council tax. I was so scared that i paid this out of my student loan!

 

Now, i look back and think, hang on- can a bailiff come to your house WITHOUT a CCJ? I'm awaiting my credit report, but i'm worried about this. I never saw ANY paperwork from the council, so would never know what had happened! Does this sound to you like a CCJ, or can a council order bailiffs from a DCA?

urm...thinks your getting your knickers in a a twist here.

 

councils get liability orders [not CCJ's]- that results in the bailiffs if you dont pay [and sadly i bet you were well fleeced by the bailiff here but hay ho]

 

bailffs are NOTHING to do withDCA's [debt collection agencies]

 

bailiffs are assigned by a court after it has been to court and have powers etc issued to them [though they nearly always fleece you on illegal fees]

 

DCA's have NO LEGAL POWERS WHATSOEVER

and can only send threat-o-grams or be a pest on the phone .

they can do NOTHING to you.

but sadly fleece you even more if you let them.

 

HTH

Ah- see, a week ago i was asked if i'd ever had a CCJ i thought, no! Then afterwards thought..hang on... what was that?

 

Given all this, do you think that the council served a liability order on me then? Is this, in credit terms, as bad as a ccj? When will it expire? Thank you!

Nope - it's not recorded at the court nor any credit reference agency.
