I wonder if you could advise me about a visit from the baliff this morning that my friend received.



She owes council tax for last year and this year.

She made an arrangement with the council debt collector and agreed to pay the debt off for last year.

She has paid £400 so far and there was only £18 remaing.



She then received 2 separate council bills with 2 different account numbers.

She rang the council and they said it was a mistake it was just and adjustment.



So as far as she knew there was one bill for 2015 to 2016 and a small one for 2014 to 2015.

The council told her the money she was paying would part go to pay off 2014 and part pay off this years.



The baliff just turned up this morning hammering on the door, and terrified her and her son.

He said he was going to take stuff today unless she paid £100 which she did,

this was all the money she had and now she cant pay her rent.



He is coming back next Friday for the other half.

The remaining amount of the bill for 2014 was only £18 and now stand at nearly £300 as he has added his visit to the £18.



The council are now saying that the two bills they previously said one was an adjustment isn't.

The debt collectors are saying the same thing.



She cant get any sense from any of them and they are all telling her to ring someone else.

She is at her wits end and doesn't know what to do.



Any help would be appreciated.

should have ignored the bailiff



did she get a notice of enforcement 7 days before his visit?




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...

How does the bailiff expect to take all her stuff?

There is no right of entry

No forcing door


If it was £18 on one bill that has now gone on yo enforcement will of grown to £305 worth of charges


Something not right

Need to contact council and get a full breakdown of what is owing and what fees have been added

If i have helped in any way hit my star.

any advice given is based on experience and learnt from this site :-)
