Hi All


My other half's dad bought my missus a car on his credit card and she is paying him back so much a week. She is the registered keeper of the car. We had a visit for the above unmentionables and they said that they would seize the car. We informed them that the car was not hers but her dads allthough she was the registered keeper.


2 days later they were banging on the door to which she did not answer and then posted a seizure notice through the letterbox. It claims that they are seizing the car and we had 5 days to pay them 1400 notes. is there anything we can do? With the way they have timed it, we cant do anything over the weekend so will be expecting a visit from them on the early hours of monday morning. We have been trying to get through the the council who always seem to be engaged and are running out of time.


Can we stop them taking the car?

i take it this is ctax arrears?

why has it got this high?



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

You can move it elsewhere and get your other half's dad to sware an affadavit that the car belongs to him. Sadly I believe the onus is on you to prove it's not yours rather than on them to prove it is. Full details would be useful.

Is the Notice of Seizure correct? Have they described the goods as are including make, colour & VRM? On the Seizure Notice have they listed their charges? How old is the vehicle and what is its approx worth?


Easiest way to solve this is a Statutory Declaration sworn before a Solicitor or Commissioner for Oaths usual cost £5/£10, you can normally walk in off the street to have it done. Unless the vehicle has a substantial value then you could also send them this letter:



My Name

My Address



Acme Bailiff Co

Bailiff House


Ref: Account No: 123456


Dear Sir


With reference to the above account. I note your Bailiff has made a Levy on a Ford Dipstick, Reg No: Z999 CAR. However I wish you to note that the value of this car if taken for sale at auction would raise at most £2-50. As you doubtless know any goods seized for sale at auction must cover the bailiff costs, removal costs, all auction costs and a proportion of the debt I owe.


The above being confirmed by the Judgment of Throssell v Leeds City Council where the judge states:

"as for your car how old is it? I.E. would the sale of it actually cover a large percentage of the bill anyway?

a vehicle should only be removed if the proceeds of sale provide that there would be a surplus available to the liability order after deductions for the bailiff fees, , removal storages and auctioneers fees."


As this clearly does not cover all these costs I put it to you that your Bailiff has a Levy that makes a financial gain for both him/herself and your Company.


Yours faithfully
