Hi,

 

We arrived home from work to find a distress notice: seizure of goods & inventor, posted through our door inside a white envelope that looked like it had been hand delivered.

There are charges for two previous visits, but this is the first we have heard from them!!

 

My husbands car was parked on driveway and they have written details of car on form.

 

When my husband phoned Andrew James office,

they demanded full payment of arrears to which my husband explained was impossible to pay.

They were rude to him and then put phone down on him.

 

I have phoned them today asking for details in writing of previous visits and name of bailiff who supposedly attended.

They refused to give me any information and told me to email them and then they put the phone down on me.

 

There is no email address on the form!

 

I phoned the council and asked them if they would take the debt back in to their administration,

but they said no and that i had to deal with the bailiffs.

 

I told them the bailiffs have unlawfully charged me and were refusing to speak to me,

only to tell us to pay in full or they would come and collect car in 5 days.

But still the council will not help us in anyway.

 

We are not refusing to pay the debt but asked if we could come to a reasonable weekly amount.

 

my husband is feeling very suicidal and i am very scared.

ignore the bailiff

 

stay off the phone !!

 

if you can pay you should be paying the council

direct via your internet banking site

never ever pay a bailiff.

.

Here is something to be getting on with. First of all establish from the Council how much was owing etc You need to speak to someone at the Council and ask the following questions:

1 - how many Liability Orders they have against you

2 - the dates they were obtained

3 - the addresses they were for

4 - the period of time each covers

5 - how much each one was for

6 - how much is still outstanding

7 - the dates they were passed on for enforcement

8 - the dates & amounts of any payments

.

Next you need to send off for a breakdown of the charges the Bailiff applied. Here's an example, use and adapt at will and best sent initially by email backed up by a copy in the post.

.

"From:

My Name

My Address

.

To:

Acme Bailiff Co

Bailiff House

.

Ref: Account No: 123456

.

Dear Sir

.

With reference to the above account, Can you please provide me with a breakdown of the charges.

.

This includes:

a - the time & date of any Bailiff action that incurred a Fee.

b - the reason for the fee.

c - the name(s) of the Bailiff(s) that attended on each occasion a Fee was charged.

d - the name(s) of the Court(s) the Bailiff(s) was/were Certificated at.

e - the date of the Certification.

.

This is not a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act S7 1998 so does not incur a fee of £10. You are obliged to provide this information.

.

I require this information within 14 days.

.

Yours faithfully

.

Ripped off customer"

Thankyou for your reply, I have tried asking the council to make payments to them but they just referred me back to the bailiffs.. They said it is in the bailiffs hands now not theirs. They didnt want to know..

So if i made payments regular through internet banking do they take it that i am trying to pay the debt and will it get the bailiff off my back

they cant refuse it

just make SURE you use the right years ref number

 

most internet banking selection menus

list the councils and ctax etc

 

use YOUR ctax account number from the bills as the ref number of the payment

In order to provide more advise it would be helpful to know the following:

 

Were you aware that a LIability Order was being obtained.

 

Did you receive a letter from the council to advise you that they had obtained a Liability Order?

 

Did you contact the council to make a payment proposal?

 

How much is the Liability Order ( according to the council)?

 

What fees have been charged to the account by the bailiff?

 

Can you provide a brief outline of the family circumstances ( such as whether employed or unemployed, any illness in the family, any children etc)

 

Also, how much roughly is the car worth?
