As he hasn't added any further costs yet, would we be better off calling the bailiff and attempting to renegotiate a payment plan. The key is the goods are worth less than 75% of the current debt and this is before collection, storage and auction charges?

Thanks, dx. I know I shouldn't have left writing to them - a case of burying my head in the sand.

 

The council site is showing the same amount as the bailiff is currently claiming, so I am not saving anything by paying the bailiff.

 

On Monday, he is going to add another £150? to the amount which doesn't give me time to write to them.

you should of done these months ago when asked

 

get them done now

 

stay off that phone to the bailiff follow this:

.

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 certificatedicon at.

e - the date of the Certification.

.

This is not a Subject access requesticon 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"

In the end, rang the bailiff and as they had not added any further charges to their original one, I just paid the balance to them in two payments. Recorded conversation to avoid confusion.
