Just to clarify the position, the 'call for evidence' referred to by the Ministry of Justice will take the form of a 'Three Year Review' of the Taking Control go Goods Regulations 2013. The date for the review will hopefully be announced soon.

So what alternative would you suggest?

There are plenty of reasonable HCEOs out there chasing perfectly legitimate debts on behalf of people who should be paid what they're owed.

Here is an example of why Enforcement is flawed first thing someone knows about a CCJ is when the HCEO fetches up at the door, in this case Sandbrook & Channel 5's finest. There has to be a better way in 2018 than adding fees that make a debt even more unaffordable to pay off by adding more fees therefore more debt.

Enforcement has to be funded somehow though and it can't and shouldn't be coming from the taxpayer. And why should the person who is owed money be landed with that bill?

The matter of a wrong address (and in particular; with parking debts) is a serious matter and thankfully, the government are looking at ways in which to resolve this problem.

 

The notes to the recent consultation make interesting reading and whether we like it or not, the fact remains that motorists very often fail to advise DVLA of a change of address on their V5C (Log Book). Interestingly, from the enquiries that I receive weekly from motorists regarding either Magistrate court fines for speeding offence etc or local authority issued penalty charge notices, it is interesting that most people do in fact update their driving licence with DVLA.....but not their V5C.

No where money is owed there should be a means of enabling repayment, but where it as a consumer debt unpayable due to a sudden illnesss/disability/loss of job etc token payments should be acceptable, of course the OC writes off the debt, claims against tax etc, then flogs it for pennies in the pound to the likes of Arrows, lowell, etc who then press that debtor for the full amount, and issue claimforms like confetti hoping for a default CCJ that they can use to screw the debtor over.

 

The sale of written off debt should be banned.
