My son had a visit from two officers from TV licencing

he did not have a licence in place and told them that he froze it back in September because he was going to Scotland which he did.

 

He contacted them a few weeks back to reinstate the licence and was spoken to like a criminal,

the guy was most unhelpful and demanded payment eventhough he asked for a payment card,

he did not have any cash in the bank as he is on JSA.

 

The guy was so rude my son put the phone down on him, being a hot headed person.

 

Hence the visit,

they asked for his reasons which he explained and they seemed to be quite understanding.

But I have my doubts as they read him his rights and gave him a Tv payment card.

 

Do you think it will still go to court?

 

Any advise would be greatly accepted. Not sure where to post this?

If he signed for the card, he will normally get a summons. The people that do the visits have no power whatsoever, unless you sign the paperwork he has with him.

 

NEVER EVER whoever you are, sign anything standing at the front door.

Thanks for your quick response and advice, too late now I guess he will be looking at a £1000 fine maybe prison because it is a criminal offence? Am i right?

Not sure, normally a fine, don't worry about prison, that will never happen.

I think that is the maximum sentance you are worrying about, it will be a fine and as he is on JSA he will be able to pay weekly


If I have been of any help, please click on my star and let me know, thank you.

My son had a visit from TVL this am he did not open the door but spoke to the woman out of the kitchen window after she had asked him a few questions he told her yes he had a TV but it is not plugged in, she continued with her questions when he stopped and asked her to wait he then picked up the TV and threw it outside the street door. She walked away. He told her he had not been in the property through disrepair and also harassment issues and only stays there on an odd occasion to give me a break.

 

What is he likely to expect from this any feedback please.

 

Thanks
