I have today received a letter from Equita bailliffs saying they are coming around to sieze goods for Non domestic rates when I took over a tenancy on a pub for 6 months in 2002.

 

The council says the bill is £7000 but to this day I have never seen a bill, statement, request for payment.

 

We took on the pub but due to being burgled twice we simply couldn't afford to pay the rent and the landlords entered and took posession of the property and kicked us out.

 

We've finally got outselves relatively on track, but still have numerous debts to contend with and this is one that we simply cannot afford. There is absolutely no way we can pay it and there is not a cat in hells chance that we could find that sort of money.

 

What on earth do we do. We've moved around alot with the pub trade so this is the first I know of it and I am absolutely at my wits end here. I don't know who to contact to see what can be done. I don't own anything of any real value so they have no way of getting hold of £7000 from my goods so if they sieze what few goods I've got it wouldn't even clear off £500 let alone the full amount. The baillifs will of course add on their fees which bang the price up even more.

 

What on earth am I going to do...

well you are only responsible for the time you were actually there.

 

I would contact the relevant council

and find out what is going on.

 

it would also be helpful to scan up the letter

 

set your default scan page size to A4 less than 300DPI [150 will do]

scan the required letters/agreements/sheets - as a picture[jpg] file

don't forget you can use a mobile phone or a digital camera too!!

'

BUT......

ENSURE: remove all pers info inc. barcodes etc using paint program

but leave all monetary figures and dates.

DO IT IN MSPAINT.EXE or any photo editing program

goto one of the many free online pdf converter websites ...

http://freejpgtopdf.com/

..

if you have multiple scans/pics

put them in a word doc FIRST and convert that to PDF

or use www.pdfmerge.com

 

convert existing PC files to PDF [office has an installable print to PDF option]

..

 

it would be better to upload a multipage pdf if

you have many images too rather than many single pdfs

.

or if you have PDF as an installed printer drive use that

or use word and save as pdf

try and logically name your file so people know what it is.

though dont use full bank names or CAG in the title

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

and the conclusion was it was Statute barred?

 

as there was no LO in place.?

I have just come off the phone to Liverpool City Council who say that it is not possible to send a copy of the original liability order because they don't have one. They also suggest that the court will also not have a copy due to the length of time ago that the LO was made.

 

They refused point blank to call off the bailliffs saying he would have legal paperwork that allows them the right to act on the behalf of the courts.

 

I have tried contacting Equita but all they will do is give me the phone number of the bailliff but he simply won't answer the phone..

 

So what happens now.. If the bailliff doesn't have a copy of the liability order then what can he do ?
