Hi,

 

This evening an open (not in envelope) Removal Notice from Marston was pushed under my door (I live in a block of flats).

 

Its says 'despite previous visits and notices this matter has not been settled...

 

.' Its for a claim of £635.

 

The client is illegible something like Knots, Avon & Somerset.

 

I have never heard from these people and have not received any notices from any Court.

 

I am sick with worry and would greatly value your advice.

 

I am a 62yo single woman on Housing Benefits and who works in a supermarket 2 days a week.

 

I have no car, no tv or any assets or savings.

 

There is a name and contact number on the notice but I'm scared of contacting him.

 

Please help?

Firstly they are simply relying on your lack of knowledge to buckle and fall for their lies and con tricks.

 

What floor are you on?

They cannot force entry, regardless of what they claim to be able to do.

 

Is it addressed to you personally?

Have you recently moved in?

 

It could very very easily be for another resident, do you have any debt you know of?

 

Have you checked your credit file recently?

Noddle is free, or for £2 you can get a hard copy from experian which will be accurate.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Hi try not to worry, now have you any idea if you owe anything to anyone, is your council tax OK, have you applied fior and have the single persons discount? It is possible Marstons have done a faulty trace and come up with you., but if you phone them try to record the call. Other Caggers will be along soon

Do you or have you driven in or around Avon and summerset ?

 

I wonder if it relates to a road traffic offence ?

This sounds to me as if it might be a Magistrates Court Fine, TV Licence perhaps?

Hi and thank you for trying to help me!

 

I live on the second floor and someone must have let them into the building because it has a locked front door.

 

It is addressed to me and I moved in in August last year.

 

I had been getting letters re tv licencing, but I contacted them when I moved into this flat last August to tell them I no longer have a tv.

I do, but I couldn't connect it to anything in the flat so its been unused ever since.

 

I also had my car clamped and taken away last year because I was late with my registration payment

and when I sent it together with my change of address form (I can't remember the actual name of the form) they said they hadn't received it

- hence car clamped and taken away.

I couldn't afford the fee to release it so I never got it back.

The tv licencing people had sent me several letters regarding not having a licence.

 

I had one in my previous flat but when I moved and discovered my tv wouldn't work with the existing aerial

- I contacted them telling them that and that I no longer needed a licence.

 

Unfortunately I can't find any reference to my correspondence with them!!

Hi, thanks for those words of comfort - much appreciated. I do get a single person's discount. I'm very nervous about phoning them - I'm feeling pretty vulnerable.

As far as TV Licence is concerned have you ever had someone at the door about this to see if you telling the truth? It could also be to do with your car. It would appear that whatever has happened was from an old address. You are going to have to contact the Court to find out what it is all about. Did you live far away from where you are now?

No, I haven't had anyone at the door or otherwise. I did get a letter from the tv licencing people a couple of months back saying they'd take action if I didn't pay my licence but I wrote back to them explaining yet again that I wasn't using a tv for the reason originally given. Both the tv thing and car were at my current address.

I will phone all Courts tomorrow to find out if any know anything of this - it obviously involves a Court, don't you think? And how soon do you think Marstons will come back?

Might just be a simple CCJ. In any case, they cant force their way in.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I'm really worried that, as someone let them into the building that they can force down my door. I live in a converted townhouse that has 8 flats.

If this relates to a matter which you know nothing about then you may ask to make a Statutory Declaration to this effect. If accepted it will rewind matters back to the beginning and all Bailiff matters will be dropped. You have 21 days from being first aware of this to make contact with the Court.

Who do I make the Statutory Declaration to?

County Court Judgment usually for an unpaid civil debt. Doubt it is this as the sums claimed are not enough for Marstons to be involved.
