If you are sure you have all the information from both equita and the Council, you should be able to state your case and give your arguments that will culminate in a request for £xxx to be refunded. in writing,..... send initially to the Head of Revenues at the Council and copy in Equita...remember it is the Council who are liable as they employ the bailiffs as their agents.


There is no template as each case differs in circumstances...if you are stuck what to write post back and ask if a cagger can help....I am so sorry not to able to step forward and offer to write for you but at the moment I need a 48 hr days to keep on top of those I am currently helping.

Hi, peeps.


Haven't been about for a bit, but now getting back into things as two friends have been very badly mauled by 'bailiffs'.


Start here ..[edit]

Good luck - I'm now assisting in two cases, neither of whom are CAGers, but I will post up each stage as things get going.


(*) I particularly liked the bits regarding the Fraud Act 2006 ... Marstons, your card is marked.


It's good to be back.

Thank you :) To be honest I had come to a dead end a few months ago because I didn't know what the next step was. I assume you've read what has been happening up 'till now? I haven't done anything from my last post. I hope I haven't left it too long, is there a limit on time to appeal or such?


Thanks for your time

I haven't challenged anything yet. When I payed the bailiff, the same day he posted 'form 7 notice of seizure and inventory of goods' through my door I explaned to him that the only thing on his inventory was a car which didn't even belong to me so I wanted to just pay the outstanding balance, he told me I had to pay everything otherwise action against me would continue and I would have another visit the next day. He said if I wanted to dispute it I had to write to the legal department??


I did write to get a breakdown of charges and payments I've made etc. This is how it goes:


Debt: £1,030.00

statutory visit fees: £24.50 - 30/08/11

Levy fees: £41.00 - 12/06/12

Enforcement fees £167.00 -12/06/12

Card charges £21.00

Unpaid direct debit £65.28 - 04/01/12 & 27/04/12


TOTAL: £1,348.78




14/09/11 £34.00

22/09/11 £34.00

30/09/11 33.00

07/10/11 33.00

14/10/11 33.00

21/10/11 33.00

28/10/11 33.00

07/11/11 33.00

11/11/11 33.00

21/11/11 33.00

28/11/11 33.00

02/12/11 33.00

09/12/11 33.00

19/12/11 33.00

26/12/11 33.00- unpaid direct debit

23/03/12 40.00

31/03/12 40.00

16/04/12 40.00

20/04/12 40.00- unpaid direct debit

14/05/12 9.70- direct payment made to council

07/06/12 21.00

The levy was not lawful so you can also knock off £290. 00 odd however add on £18.00


No lawful levy, no levy fee, no levy fee, no enforcement fee.


Cannot charge a card fee or charge for an unpaid DD.


I would have a word with the council about this as they are responsible for their agents.
