    • 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

    • I sent in the bailiffs to the BBC. They collected £350. It made me smile.

    • 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!

Hi Guys,

 

My court date is on 15th September and so far haven't heard anything from Mr J, Barclays or their solisitors.

 

Could I be the 1st (I think) to actually get my day in court, not that I'm worried as I've done all my research

 

Do people think I should expect a call soon?

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

I have just received a letter saying that Barclays intend to defend my entire claim. Did you receive the same letter and do you think it is a delaying tactic?

So do I need to worry about actually attending court and have there been many cases that have gone to court?

Try not to worry (easier said than done somtimes), as said so many times before they do not want to go to court.

 

Bit of advice, try not to phone. You may end up slipping up or agreeing to something you didn't intend to. They record their phone conversations. Just tell them to put it in writing.

 

I found when I didn't return their call a letter arrived the next day with an offer. (Although my story is not yet concluded)

James Mclouglin (sp) made contact with me last week to discuss my case, anyway I didn’t have time to talk to him when he rang last Thursday but rang him back first thing on Friday morning. He advised me that whilst they didn’t contest the amount of the charges I was claiming and even hinted that they would be happy to settle. BUT it seems I may of made a bit of a boo boo, I have failed to indicate on some paperwork that I would be claiming the 8% interest (cant remember the paperwork he referred too). I said I needed the weekend to think about it and would ring him back on Monday. James then advised that he was changing departments and that Friday was his last day. He gave me Keith’s number and asked that I ring ASAP to get this case sorted.

 

Anyway, I rang Keith’s office today and surprise, surprise he failed to answer his phone, I left a message with one of his colleagues and asked that he rang me soonest. So far no call and the court date is on Thursday.

 

Can anyone offer any advice as to what I should do about claiming the 8%? I had made mention that I would be claiming it several times in correspondence leading up to this point.

 

Cheers

If you added the 8% interest on the N1 form or MCOL, when you filed your claim, I dont really see how they can get out of paying it
