    • Hi.. I would like to give you the case number, but I am concerned about Disclosure as this reference if accessed will have all my personal details. Not sure if this would be accessible by anyone but a Judge etc... Hopefully, someone on this site may know..   Regards Tom
    • Magistrates liability order hearings are simply Council staff attending the Court to allow the Council Taxpayer opportunity to provide information about ability to pay, to see if a payment arrangement can be entered into. It is an administrative process as already explained.   If you have already provided all available financial, health and other information to the Council and they are proceeding to obtain the Liability Order, this is because it enables them to use all available means including bailiffs or deductions from benefits to obtain the Council Tax arrears.   Can I suggest that you make a complaint to the Council about them not taking into account your health and hardship circumstances. Argue that they have treated you unfairly by not giving you opportunity to have your ability to pay Council Tax reviewed and this has been detrimental to your health and wellbeing.   By making the complaint, hopefully this will enable them to work with you to fully address what help the Council are able to offer. I.e. is the Council Tax amount correct with any reductions applied, have all payment options been discussed, can Council waive costs of obtaining Liability Order.
    • What is the name of the window cleaning business? Have you taken photographs of the dirty windows et cetera?
    • i would suggest that you stick to researching on here only. use our search top right for say CTAX or liability order.   you seriously have some wild theories, but those are understandable.   as i have said, there won't be a court hearing you need nor would that help you at all nor are expected to attend, it's not like that, it's merely a rubberstamp exercise .   there is no right of forced entry for bailiffs collecting CTAX debts. the bailiff process is one of a letter which will be entitled Notice of enforcement, this gives you 7 days to pay the sum it outlines with an associated fee of £75 for it being sent. the 2nd step will be a visit, you have no legal remit to engage with them at all, i i would not do so under any circumstances, that visit will add a further £235 fee those are the only things a bailiff can do. the most they can charge is a total of £310.   police do not ever get involved in civil matters like CTAX debt. not sure where you ever got that idea from.   its saturday now so use the W/end wisely, get reading up HERE ONLY it might well pay you on monday to go RING the council CTAX dept and plead poverty etc etc. it might also pay you to find the email address or even better phone number of your local MP and get him involved. they can do wonders.   dx

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

I had a guy who had worked for me for 5 years.

He came to me begging in December for a house to stay in.

I helped the guy out by giving him a house that I owned.

 

 

Cut a long story short he kept the money from the benefit payments telling me lies after lies.

 

 

I managed to get a court order to evict him.

But he still owes me £4000 which I have no chance of seeing.

 

 

This has sent me in financial difficulties trying to cover the mortgage shortfall.

The court ordered him to pay the full amount which he has not.

 

I would really like to get the money off him.

 

 

I know he works full time but found out later he is claiming housing benefit.

He must not be declaring his entire income which will make it hard for me to get the money right?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

get the court to sent court bailiffs if you have judgement against him

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 have the judgement but if he says that he is on benefits and doesn't have anything worth much other then a £800 car and some work stuff can they do anything? Is there a way to get him to pay something weekly? Do I need to know where he lives now?

Ok will do. What normally happens in this situation though? I know he is working full time as but he will just tell them he has nothing and is on benefits.

Who is he working for and in what capacity?

 

If he is an employee then you can try and get an attachment to earnings.

 

If he is self-employed you could try and get a third party debt order that orders the employer to pay you money they owe to the debtor. (You would have to hope his "employer" owes him money though - if the employer is paying each day or cash in hand then it would be a waste of time as the employer owes (or will say he owes) no money to the debtor).

 

If he is evasive and has no assets a bailiff might be a waste of money (views based on a few episodes of "Can't pay or we'll take it away"!)

He is a self employed DIY guy. So does handy jobs around the town. Always cash in hand and I only found out when he took house of me that he was claiming full benefits. So he probably tells HMRC that he is working part time to make ends meet and claims Dole/free housing from the government.

 

I don't even care if he has to pay a fiver a week. Just want him to realise that he can't do this to people. He is on this new Universal credit and I have heard that you can get attachment of earnings on that but can't find much information.

I can't help you with that.

 

By all means try, but at some point you may need to recognise that it is more stress and cost to you than to him. I say that from experience.
