Hi there,

 

My court fines have been passed on to Marstons because i forgot to make a couple of payments, I live with my partner and it is her tenancy. She has been and sworn a statutory deceleration that all goods in the premises belong solely to her etc etc...I have also just sent a letter attached with a copy of the statutory declaration by recorded delivery to Marston group.

 

Today while we was out a bailiff attended the house and left a removal notice with his details etc stating that if payment is not made in full a further visit without notice will be made to remove goods. I was hoping to be there when they came so as to give them a couple of letters along with a copy of my partners statutory dec.

 

My worry is can they just turn up and force entry having never actually spoken to me, and once they receive a copy of the stat dec, are they legally obliged to accept that? and therefore accept that there is no goods for them to levy in the property??

 

thanks for any advice

I can't answer your question but I am having bailiff trouble with another company for council tax and they told me they wouldnt accept a stat dec. But from my experiences they lie about everything and seeing as it's a legal document surely they should be accepting it?

don't let them in, offer them the stat dec through the letterbox, and read a few threads on marstons, don't phone them unless you can record the call. they should accept it but likely they won't, others who know more will be along soon i'm sure to help you further

We could do with some help from you.

The letter(s) are having the desired effect - to put you into panic mode. If they have never been in your home or otherwise made a levy on goods outside then the chances are they will never obtain an Order from the Court allowing them to force an entry. They will eventually have to return the case back to the Court. Surely if you are on a low income or benefits you can submit a Means Test at the Court. If you have your Stat Dec done then leave a copy affixed to your door marked for the attention of your new best friend, send a copy initially by email to the Bailiffs followed by a copy in the post. Above all do not open the door to them but speak through the letter box or an upstairs window.

So this removal notice they shoved through my door is nothing official from the courts allowing them to force entry?? and just scare mongering?? they have already added over £300 to the original amount!!

Hi Davidcl...In the end I guess you could say I won, I stood my ground, refused to enter into verbal dialogue with the bailiffs and in the end it was returned to court where I was able to continue making my payments :)
