hi there would love it if someone could advise me on my bailiff problem

 

i had a payment agreement set up with jacobs bailiff company but due to my mum passing away and my mind else were i missed a payment in jan 2013 i then called them up to make a double payment to bring the arears on the account up date.

 

I was told i couldnt because it had gone out to a bailiff jxxxxn cxxxxy and i would now have to sort it out with him which i did i contacted him and we agreed to another plan for me to pay £50 a month a week later he contacted me saying the bailiff company refused it because previous agreements had been broken but they were only broke because i was unemployed and just couldnt afford it at the time i then contacted the company who again rufused to take any payment saying i could only pay the debt off in full at this point the debt was £630

 

i then gave them my phone number to give to the bailiff at the end of feb 2013 because the cost of phone calls to an 0845 number where costing a bit to much money and awaited contact no contact came until i received a letter in april 2013 telling the amount i owed was now £820 i dont dispute the original amout amount of £630 which has now been paid direct to the council and has cleared debt but there is still £192 in charges. which i dispute because i think they are unlawful.

 

i have asked for a breakdown of the charges which they have sent to me here are the charges why they were charged and dates.

 

 

8th march 2012 bailiff pxxxe fxxxxxn Fee £24.50

 

9th march 2012 bailiff pxxxe fxxxn Fee £18.00

 

these charges were already added to the account in the £630

 

then on the 2nd april 2013 bailiff dxxxn hxxxxxxxxn called to my property they charged me a £48 levy fee which was done on my vehicle in my absence i was in at the time because i was off work with a broken arm there was no knock at my door he also charged me £120 for attending with a van and £24.50 SCH 5 HEAD when he done this nothing was posted to inform me he had been and that my vehicle had been levied. my car was still outside my house so i was non the wiser this had been done he then called back on the 8th april but again i was in at the time there was no knock and again and no letter posted telling me he had called and my car was left outside my house.

 

i think charging me £192 for 1 visit on the 2nd april 2013 is very expensive

 

i would be grateful for any help

 

thanks warren

The first & second visit fees are probably correct providing of course they did visit on the dates claimed. Have you also checked to make sure the Bailiff who allegedly visited had a current Certificate at the time?

 

As for the visit on 2 April did he leave you a Notice of Seizure for the vehicle? He may well have been able to charge the levy fee but nothing else as you need to be given time to pay before they can charge the ATR/Van fee. As for the Head H fee then this also should not have been charged as he did not remove the goods anyway.
