    • 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 there,

 

Have been using a different thread, but have now been advised to post a new thread in this forum as I am claiming back charges from Halifax.

 

Current Position:

 

Received statements, am claiming back £602 in charges from Halifax. I have issued 2 LBAs to Halifax which they have until today to respond. If I get home and there is no letter from them, I will be starting my court proceedings tomorrow. Wish me luck and thanks to excellent people on this site who's help so far has been amazing. Once again, thanks to all for your advice and support.

 

Will keep you posted.

Thanks very much. One last question (for now and sorry for all the questions). My credit cards have not responded to me as yet. I have only issued the 1st LBA to them. Is the next step I send another LBA giving them another 14 days and after that, start court proceedings.

 

Thanks Shaz.

Hi there,

 

I submitted my MCOL today and had to withdraw it because I had made an error putting in my account number under the particulars of claim bit. I often wonder things happen for a reason.

 

Yesterday 17 Oct, I got a letter from Halifax saying that they didn't receive my LBA letter of the 12 September and only received my second LBA letter (I referred to my letter of 12 Sept. in this letter) and that they are now looking into my complaint. On 18 Oct (today), I got another letter saying that the figure of £602 is incorrect and they make it £292 in charges and I was given wrong information and they also enclosed a list of charges they are referring too. Well the charges they have listed only date back as far as 2004. They are offering my £109 of the £292 total. Which I will of course refuse. As a result of me going through my statements again and double checking against what they say, I have now realised they owe me £702, £100 more than my original request.

 

When they provided me with my statements of 6 year history, they said they were really sorry, but couldn't provide me with statements from Jan 2004 to Oct 2004 because they were not available. As a result of their breakdown of my charges that they supplied, miraculously they managed to identify charges applied to me from the statements they allegelly couldn't provide me with previously. However, I managed to find these statements i've now discovered another £100 in charges.

 

Please can you advise me what I should do. I was going to photocopy the statements where the charges have been applied and send these to the Halifax and reject their offer and give them a few more days to respond or should I just proceed with my court action?

 

Many thanks in advance.

As you have amended the amount, you need to send another LBA with the amended schedule, but only giving them 7 days to respond. I would point out that the charges you are claiming go back further than those they calculated. After the 7 days, file.

Please Click The Scales if I have been of help to you.

Latest update... Halifax after telling me my claim was incorrect and was only for £202 or something have admitted that it is £787 and are offering me £209. I have declined their offer by telephone and told them that I would be proceeding with court action. MCOL issued on 4 Nov. They have until 25 Nov to respond.

 

On MCOL it says claim acknowledged.
