    • As I recall the only thing you tried telling us was based on a quote that you selectively edited by Lord James of Blackheath. You misrepresented it as a statement of fact when it was actually a question which was laughed at by his peers in the House of Lords.  We told you it was garbage, you asked us to prove it and we did.   Remember?
    • you need to realise that for every person that does come to CAG and register and tell their story...there are poss 10'000 that don't but search the interweb whereby threads that are here pop up relating to like issues they are searching upon.   Most CAG siteteam and many other registered Caggers give advice that bears this in mind and post information which not only informs the starter of a thread upon what to do, but also takes into consideration the readers from the interweb that also read the relevant advice given that might not be brave enough to register and fess up.   to that end, there is very little alternative than to appear to give 'grief' [you deserve it - tough] to a cagger should certain previous advice not have been followed.....yours is a very classic case of such. hey I've found a backdoor CCJ.   to put it bluntly, had you have followed such previous advice, you most certainly would not be in the situation you are in here now.. .so by example, not giving you grief, for future readers...………..   ...never ever move without informing a debt owner of a move of address on any consumer debt that you last used or paid within the last say 7yrs. your credit file is a major key to ascertaining that information.... .but don't just read this advice come to the consumeractiongroup.co.uk website and let us help.   lecture over... what can you do..or more importantly....what can a claimant do now they have a default forthwith judgement against you. well we can't guess.... they might simply ignore it as 1000's of people with CCJ's find out..but it becomes an issue should you wish to say get a mortgage, remortgage or further credit.   i'm not going to enter into any of that here...that's for the reader to start a thread here and seek advice on their individual situation specific to them as you have done....   so...  bearing the all of the above in mind...over to you with regard to this backdoor CCJ.   as for the other debts that you didn't action before...go read your old thread and action what appropriate advice is given there for each type of debt that has been given should you wish to avoid any further backdoor CCJ's.   dx                    
    • hello my very good helpful friend. I am afraid to say that i did not. As i did not realise the relevance of it.   Should i be doing this right now of anyone on my credit file ?   Plz don't give me grief if u have already advised me...   do i do the ccs request now to everybody in that thread ?    
    • aha busted and stupid ...no wonder you've got mixed information here. never trust anything they say ..they have a very bad reputation for stating the truth.   now can you go get your credit file please..   there are cases whereby a council on historic CTAX debts do go for a county court CCJ, but a liability order from a magistrates court has far more clout legally than a county court CCJ and i've never heard of a court sending a bailiff out for 'multiple' CCJ collection.   me thinks he is pulling the wool here a bit and has looked at your credit file and seen CCJ's too so thought he'd chance his arm and use those as further leverage.   don't worry about the sat visit simply ignore do not answer the door if he appears. your task is too gather data at present.   credit file please..

I recently left my employer as the job really wasnt what I had been sold. As part of my package I received international relocation expenses to move to the uk, with my contract stating 75% should be repaid if leaving within 18 months.

 

Upon leaving I owed around £5000, £2500 of which I repaid. I am now being chased for the remaining, I haven't paid this because I dispute around £1000 of these costs. the shipping company the firm used we more than double the highest quote of any other supplier I can find. All of this I explained to the firm and tried to resolve before leaving to no avail.

 

To date I have received two letters from the company and now a letter from a debt collector 'Spratt Endicott' demanding payment within 7 days of they will proceed with legal action.

 

Do I need to pay or are these just scare tactics and I should try to negotiate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you agreed the contract terms with your previous employers, that you would repay them 75% of the relocation expenses and did not yourself research cheapest possible cost at the time, then yes you will have to pay the amount remainng that you owe.

 

Suggest that you negotiate repayment of the remaining amount due.

 

The only other thing you might consider was whether the job advertised and you a agreed a contract for, was actually different when you started the employment. This is where you might wish to seek legal advice, as you might be able to reclaim expenses back from the employer by issuing a court claim against them. The argument is that had the job been accurately described, you would not have accepted the employment contract and incurred the liability for relocation costs etc.


We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for the reply! Agreed I did sign a contract, but i had no view of the supplier or cost at the time as everything was handled by the firm. Who I thought would have a responsibility to choose a supplier at a fair market value

 

The point regarding the advertised job is an interesting one, as it was significantly different, however having reread the contarct 'we reserve the right to change the job at any time' probably negates this

your employer does have a duty to make sure that any cost that impinges upon you is fair so ask tehm for copies of the other quotes they obtained. It then wont matter if soem you found were cheaper, just what was the best of what they found. If they diodnt do thsi they will ahve a problem enforcing the contract for the reason given. Alo the vague we reserve to change the job anytime is also a bit vague as ant changes must fit in with the basic rules for competency. However it doesnt look as though this is being tested by reality so keep away from that argument unless the qualifications, experience etc needed are significantly different
