    • I am not sure what you are expecting. This is nothing new, it is just that the person concerned caught the incident on camera, that makes it newsworthy, apparently. Simply the EA fell foul of the regulation which defines "relevant premises". I can think of several judgments which agree with this, and found against the Bailiff..: 6)Otherwise premises are relevant if the enforcement agent reasonably believes that they are the place, or one of the places, where the debtor— (a)usually lives, or (b)carries on a trade or business. The bailiff may call at relevant premises, this may or may not correspond to any residential information suppled by the creditor or his office, the provision is permitted under his general powers.   The point is that the EA must have a reasonable belief that the person lives or works there. Once the EA acts outside the procedure authorised by his writ(Schedule( 12), he is open to actions under common law or those rules applicable under other legislation.   Problems only arise when people take this incident to prove something that it doesn't.     There is no disputing that the bailiff and the company behaved atrociously, and there is no denying that DCBL makes a habit of this kind of thing

    • Welcome to the Forum. Could you please just clarify the date you received the NTK. It doesn't usually take 11 days to deliver unless it went via a lease company or business address first.

    • Hello,  So long story short my cousin and best friend has got themselves in to quite a pickle. They moved into a new build about a year ago and have always had "luck" never being charged for gas and electric as somehow in the past 8 years they would always be skipped and never chased up or checked for their electricity despite numerous different places they've lived in. Their luck seems to have run out with scottish power and they're not sure what to do at the moment for a few reasons: All letters are addressed to the occupant and not their actual name They've been hesitant to phone scottish power as they've received letters on estimated readings but scottish power have been known to charge both estimated AND actual if you're higher than your estimated which seems crazy to me as if you're lower you don't pay your lower AND actual you pay and receive the difference   Grosvenor has just contacted them saying they've been instructed to collect outstanding arrears, they have PTSD dealing with some bailiffs in the past(long story but the issue actually had nothing to do with them, had wrong address but Bailiff nearly hospitalized the poor girl) and aren't sure how to move forward because no one answers the phones at Grosvenor and of course wouldn't want it to escalate. What can my dear cousin do?

    • I’m in desperate need of help
       
      I bought some clothes online in may through Evans and paid through PayPal
      returned them all seven days later
       
      I waited the 14days for my refund and no refund came
      I put in a dispute through PayPal but I didn’t get any emails to escalate the case - PayPal closed it. 
      evans said they couldn’t refund the money because PayPal have cancelled the refund because of the open dispute
       
      I contacted PayPal
      they said the dispute had been closed but Evans at no point had attempted a refund.
      fast forward to today
       
      I’ve got copies of numerous messages sent to and from twitter messages as it’s the only way I can contact them
      I’ve also contacted their customer service too
      all I get is PayPal have cancelled refund because dispute is still open.
       
      I have proved that the dispute is closed
      I have got an email saying that if Evans sent the refund they would accept it
      but up until the date I got the email they have not once attempted a refund .
       
       I have sent them a letter before court email
      I have even offered to have the full refund as a gift card just to get this sorted !
       
      I’m literally at the end of my tether and don’t know where to turn next !
       
      i suffer with mental health issues and this is affecting my health and I’d saved the money for a year to buy these clothes as I’m on a low income .

Blimey! I to thought it was going for mediation.

 

Please give fuller details including where you think your case failed. Did you take your own statements/ evidence in to show you hadn't made payments?

Hi Andy

 

I will provide a fuller update shortly.

 

I'm just checking on the judgement process as it stands

- does anyone know when a CCJ shows on my credit record?

 

 

I intend to pay it in full as I understand if I pay it in one month, it doesn't stay on my record for the six years.

 

 

However, I am reading conflicting messages

- that it goes on within a few days,

then I need to pay it and have it removed.

 

 

Or that it doesn't gone on until a month after and if I pay it before then, it never goes on.

 

 

The reason I ask is I am due a bank appointment next week and don't want it on there,

particularly as I do intend to pay it off.

 

 

Obviously if it goes on straight away then comes off later,

 

 

I will defer my appointments

The judge opened up saying it was on the claimant to prove it wasn’t statute barred.

They had sent someone to represent them (not the person on the witness statement).

 

He did initially start off questioning that the transaction summary said payment received

but that the claimants had said payments in their witness statement.

He questioned which it was.

 

 

He also made the point that the payment could feasibly be made in April 09 so be statute barred, and asked them about proof of payments.

 

 

The claimant solicitor said that the date of May 2010 was the last date entered, the debt was still owed,

so they contested that May 2010 was the date of the last payment.

Otherwise the record would have just showed payment up to 2015.

 

I was asked about the point on why it was statute barred based - I said I had no record of payment, that no proof had been provided.

 

The claimants solicitor made a point that I hadn't provided any bank statements to show a payment hadn't been made.

 

The judge said on the balance of probabilities, a payment was made and the last payment was May 2010.

There was little thought from him on them saying two payments but not proof of that, how much etc.

No questioning of the transaction summary essentially being a print out.

 

 

What I believe started hopeful, ended with that.

 

I’m annoyed cos I am now wracking my brains thinking did I make a strong enough case, was there anything I could have said. But it is what it is now I suppose.

 

Thanks to all those who have helped.

When I receive the judgement and have made a payment,

I will make a contribution to the site.

I have appreciated the advice and comments.

Sorry to hear this. It's easy to question whether you did as much as you could. I have similar regrets because I was very naive to the process - my claim involved over £20k! As long as you hammered home the points well enough that there should be no doubt, never mind on the balance of probabilities, if the claimant can simply consult their records and supply more details of said payments, starting with the dates made - then you cannot really have done much more. With you denying that payments were made and them unable to prove otherwise, the law concludes that they cannot pursue any claim against you. It doesn't sound like you had a very helpful judge.

 

Don't dwell on it. Learn from the experience and move on.

that's not fair

judge lottery me thinks

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 wonder whether I made the points as forcefully as I could, I don't know if nerves got the better of me or whether I didn't think it was appropriate. The claimants solicitor did try to use something I said saying that I had said the payments had been made when I had in fact said the only evidence of payments being made is the claimants word- I pointed out to her and the judge that I had said the claimants witness statement mentioned this not me.

 

The judge did seem really hesitant that this wasn't clear cut - I do maybe think if I had a solicitor, it may have been different. But it's easy to say in hindsight.

 

I just want to get the judgement now and take the relevant action to try and put this behind me. Hopefully be the last time I ever need to go through anything like this.

Balance of probabilities and the question of payments in connection with the Statue of limitations...does not belong in the same sentence and the DJ should know better and demanded the payments date source etc.

 

I suppose you could have disclosed statement showing no payment ...but to use the DJ words ..." it was on the claimant to prove it wasn’t statute barred ":roll:

....and it could even have been 'one I made earlier'. What's good for the goose.....

 

I can put my name to this judgement - it was a 'Sham'!

Exactly. He even mentioned the lack of evidence when moving towards making a decision. It was all over very quick. I could have pulled out statement after statement - but they would have wanted me to go through dozens of statements to look for a payment, in that period (my bank does it on transactions, not calendar months). I should have made this point I suppose but it didn't come up until at the end (of what was a very short hearing).

 

As shamrocker says, I literally could have printed a kale statement - nothing was verified.

 

If I didn't want to avoid the CCJ so much having had defaults for the past 6 years and felt it's impact, I would be a pain in the arse about repaying them and make it the lowest/slowest I possibly could!

seems was 'a creditor friendly J'!

there is the bal of probs, but, as said, when Statutory Bar is in issue then they shld've been made to evidence the exact date of the last payment, as the J said itself! Its their burden first and if they cant evidence that initally then it shldnt really go further, otherwise its just a case of them simply stating, generally, there was a payment sometime up to xx/xx, theres nothing to rebut, thanks DJ.

IMO

I've now received a general form of judgement or order. Literally only just turned up and tells me I have until next Friday at 4pm (18th December) to pay. The hearing was on 2nd!

 

Now I want to pay it all but I:

1. Didn't think it would be such short notice

2. It doesn't say anything about paying before then to stop the CCJ going on my record, if it even does?

3. It give's no info about what if I don't pay

 

Obviously I plan to ring them Monday but obviously this turning up at such short notice has surprised me

I don't know. This is everything it says...

 

'General Form of Judgement or Order' is at the top along with a box with info on the court claim no, date and my dob

 

It then lists the case, Hoist v Me

 

Then says..

 

"Before Deputy District Judge .....

 

It is adjudged that

 

the claimant recover agains the defendant the sum of £1,853.65 for debt and interest to date of judgement and £355.00 for costs amounting together to the sum of £2,208.65

 

The defendant having paid the sum of £0.00

 

It is ordered that the defendant pay to the claimant the sum of £2,208.65 on or before 4:00pm on 18 December 2015'

 

It then has a warning about iff I ignore it then goods may be removed etc, then a box on address for payment which is Howard Cohen & Co and then how to pay saying keep records, pay them not the court, leaflets on registered judgements, how to pay and what do to if you cannot pay are available from court.

 

At the bottom it tells me it is an N24 General Form of Judgement or Order

Pity I only received it today like.

 

So if I just pay this off, the CCJ won't go on my record, that's how it works?
