hi i


On the 11.12.2013


I had a very nice Lady who came to my door she kindly explained who she was from (Marston Bailiffs).

She told me she had to bills for my address one for me and one for my hubby.

She couldn't give me any more details apart from they are for T.V Licence. And could she come in.


I let her in.


i asked if we could do a payment plan.

she kindly said no.and she would give me a week (That shes wasn't allowed to do) but she would.


I then waited for hubby to come home from work.


he phoned around and wasn't able to do anything to get the money.


i phoned her back up and she said that she would be back on the Thursday to get the money and i had to get it from friends/family.


Still unable to get the money.


Mean while me and hubby went to a debt place to help us with are money.


the debt man told me to offer them a bit when thay come to phone her up and ask her if she would come on that Friday instead of the Thursday. s


i phoned her up. and she wasnt very nice at all made me cry.


she did say she would come on the friday.


i waited for them to come and get my stuff ( i know theres not much i can do) thay have a distresse warrant.


Thay didnt come.


i phoned her up to find out why she didnt turn up.


She said shes not permitted to tell me when she comes and that she will have a lockssmith and police with her.


i said im going to let you in and i was ready and waiting. she got very angry And said whatever and hung up on me.


Today im still waiting.


I got my debt man to help me writet a complaint letter.


still waiting to hear from that.


i was told to phone her up and tell her i was vulnerable (mentle heath)

and thats all i said. she said a thankyou then put the phone down.


Just wondered How long i have to be a prisoner in my own home as i dont feel like i can go out incasse thay turn up.


What time limit have thay got to do this ??

yer probably like i said was burying are heads in the sand..Thay still haven't turned up..How long have they got till thay cant do anything a time limit Maby ?? xx

There IS no time limit, and Marstons will not go away. Do you have a diagnosed mental health condition with evidence you can send to the court and marstons to prove it?


If so that may help to prove vulnerability. In the meantime could you pay something into the court, Marstons will be looking for a letter fee then more when they call. Other Caggers can help further.

We could do with some help from you.

You have stated that you allowed the bailiff into your home and now you are expecting a further visit when goods will apparently be taken.


Can you please confirm whether the bailiff "levied" upon any items? Did she provide you with a list of goods?


Please do not take this the wrong way but from a great deal of experience it is usually the case that when a "personal visit" is made to enforce a criminal fine the bailiff does NOT allow additional time to be given to get payment. I am therefore assuming ( and I could be wrong) that the bailiff was aware that the goods in the property are worth very little. Could this be the case?


How much is the bailiff demanding from EACH of you?


Is the bailiff requesting a visit fee from your fine and your husbands or are you being charged just ONE attendance fee of £215.


Lastly, are either of you working or are you in receipt of benefits?
