I am hoping that someone can help me,

 

long story cut short,

 

I got made redundant a while ago and TV licence direct debit bounced and I got a fine, I am now working.

 

I ran the courts who said £50 a month is the least I can pay,

they would not accept any less,

 

I managed to pay a couple of months but then could n't pay ( I am also catching up on rent/council tax)

 

I have had a letter from Marstons saying that they will visit to levy distress and remove my goods by auction.

 

As I have a heart condition I have written to Marstons re vulnerable debtor etc,

 

however is there any template letter or legislation that I can quote to the court,

 

all I want to do is come to an arrangement that I can afford but I know that the court will refer me back to the baliff

who will add additional charges on,

 

its making me ill and the insomnia !

 

hence I am writing this at 1 in the morning,

 

any advice would be appreciated,

talk to the court directly.

 

dx

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

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...

I don't feel that I will get anywhere with them, I have looked through forums and it would appear the courts would refuse to deal with it, would tell me that it is now in the hands of the bailiffs, besides they (court) wouldn't listen when I asked in the first place to have payments set at a rate that I could afford

I even asked to speak to a manager and they would n't budge on the payment amount

 

If you have a court fine you cannot obtain an affordable repayment plan for, then you ask Magistrates for a 'means hearing', pointing to your vulnerability. I don't think this can be refused. But you would have to go to the court to get anywhere. Probably over the phone, they will try to give you the brush off. If you go to the court, take all your financial info and evidence of medical issue.

We could do with some help from you.

Only a magistrate can determine the amount you should pay. Get a means assessment done by a magistrate as soon as possible. BTW how much was the original TV licence fine before bailiff costs?
