I have a debt which is in dispute but a ccj was granted against me. I only knew about the ccj when a statement of entry into the register was received . I tried to negotiate a payment arrangement with the sheriffs officers but was met with rudeness and hostility so sent them an email offering a payment arrangement . I never heard anything back from them by email phone or letter so sent a cheque for the first payment. The cheque has never been cashed and now I have received a letter saying they are send the bailiffs with a open shut and lock fast order to attach goods for sale.

 

I thought that exceptional attachment orders can only be granted if they apply to the court and then the court has to give me a hearing date and that these EAO are really rare or is this just a bully boy tactic by sherriffs company and they don't have any right of entry at all if I'm out.

 

I'm a bit worried that when I'm out on Thursday they will break in and change my locks then I have to go and collect new keys from somewhere, I'm disabled and not well at the moment so this could could really affect me . I unfortunately cannot cancel my meetings and hospital appointment on Thursday as its taken months to get this one.

 

Where do I stand if they force entry ? Or should I be down to solicitors on Monday and get them to call the sherriffs and get an explanation

Sounds to me that the Sheriff officers are being over the top, What type of debt are they pursuing ?.

The debt is an electricity bill from about 3 years ago for £85 which because I didn't even know I owed it, with all the sheriffs fees and ccj fee now stands at £450 which is why I am disputing it. I have been with the same power company for about 10 years and I thought when I moved house 3 years ago the outstanding bill would just transfer over to my new house as its the same company and same account . I mean one of the fees on the sheriffs statement is a skip trace , how can they justify that when the electric company know where I live .

 

I have been in touch with the power company and they are just passing me from pillar to post and no one wants to say oops we got it wrong and this should have just come off your account.
