    • 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..        
    • Hi there, the company name on the bit of paper is:   Bristow & Sutor   Says the total amount £990.49 and this includes £235 enforement stage fees,  The CTAX was owed to North Tyneside Council. The guy also said that it wasn't just for CTAX. Other debts were combined.   I did leave other debts behind too when I moved. Perhaps a utility bill, credit card debts and a Provi doorstep loan.   I think the guy said that he would be back Saturday too. This is what I'm trying to avoid multiple visits. Don't want my mam to get upset.   Thanks for the help.   Bear
    • Hi   Just to be clear a Tenant cannot refuse to pay rent after they have signed your Tenancy Agreement for the property irrespective if they are claiming no hot water for xx weeks especially when you have evidence to the contrary.   As they are now 2 months in arrears they have breached your tenancy agreement and you could go down the section 8 route for the rent arrears to evict your tenant and the letting agent you employed should be fully aware of this.   The hot water issue sounds more like the tenant didn't have a clue how to operate the heating system within your property   Has the Letting Agent informed this Tenant about the rents arrears and their Guarantor who would also be liable for the rents arrears?   Now the Tenant that wants to leave early as there is no 'Break Clause' in your Tenancy Agreement signed they would have to negotiate with you the Landlord to leave early as they are then in breach of that signed Tenancy Agreement.   Now before doing any of this is they have paid a Deposit it should be protected in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme and they should have been give a copy of that deposit schemes prescribed terms.
    • So a bit of an update as I haven’t posted for a while   I have received a court date of the 14th of Feb 2020 (maybe they will take me for a nice meal afterwards?) so I am starting to prepare my witness statement.    today I have received a letter from BW legal in response to my CPR letter yet again ignoring the fact that their T&Cs do not cover double parking.   They are also now starting to hint that I was parked out of the bay yet the images provided on their evidence of the three tickets they are claiming for don’t evidence this as they are such bad quality.  stapled to the back of this is another letter.   As a “gesture of good will”, the client is offering an out of court settlement figure of £500 payable in the next 5 days. Me thinks they are starting to realise they may not have a leg to stand on here!
    • firstly , they are not a Debt collector [never confuse the two - a DCA chasing consumer credit debt is totally powerless and have ZERO legal powers to do or take anything - they have no more legal powers than you or I do ] these will be bailiffs and do they have legal powers.   However, the good bit is that unlike what you might have seen on TV, for a council CTAX liability order [please confirm there is or NOT a CCJ registered check your creit file] there is NO right of forced entry. The bottom line is, bar all the arm waving, is, that if you simply totally ignore them, they will eventually go away.   Now what they can do is two fold on CTAX. basically add fees to a set limit.   the first is a notice of enforcement letter. this comes with a fee of £75 and gives you 7 days to set up some sort of payment plan.   the second is an actual visit, where by a further fee of £235, whereby the fees are now £310 , the maximum they can ever add to the CTAX bill. this is typically accompanied by a threat to removed goods, it's cleverly worded or 'explained' to make you 'think' they can waltz in any take anything they like. THEY CANNOT unless YOU let them in. which you don't, nor leave doors unlocked as they can then enter through what is called 'peaceful entry'.   in real term, the seizure of goods is limited to stuff outside like cars YOU might own that are not behind locked gates.   so i'm not too sure what stage you are at  so please clarify. the name of the bailiff company. how much you now owe the county council the CTAX is owed too.   if you have any/all paperwork please scan it to PDF  after redaction - read our upload guide]   one last point. they don't keep coming around they don't keep ringing. neither of those gander them anymore money so they don't bother.   dx

I'll try to keep this short but it's rather convoluted and I need to not mention organisations or it could all identify everyone involved so please be patient.

 

My child went to a popular social group for children and I was a volunteer there too. I am guessing to an extent what is going on as they won't tell me which is part of the problem.

 

There was an incident involving my child and another of inappropriate touching it was investigated by police and social services who concluded it was a game (tag/it) and it was an accident and blown out of all proportion by the other child.

 

The upset child came to me to complain and I told them to tell a different volunteer as it involved my child too and I could not deal with it as if anyone looked later it could look like I was biased. I believe later she did tell another adult.

 

Some time later I hear my child is suspended for the incident and that I am too but only because I am the parent, ok I think. I then hear an allegation has been made against me, despite a DPA SAR which they returned they have not informed me of what I am accused of. They asked me to defend myself but obviously I cannot because I don't know what I am accused of, I did write back explaining all this and asking again.

 

It obviously cannot be serious as the police and social services are NOT involved but still.

 

I have written to them over and over, they claim they have sent the info but I have never received it (I have received every other letter they've sent) they then claim they sent it via email, unsecured and unencrypted but I never got that so I believe they have breached the data protection act as well.

 

This week I get a letter from the DBS people saying they are considering adding me to the banned list so I wouldn't be allowed to do any of the church stuff I do, school stuff and Lord knows what else. On top of this the other parent present, their child did sexually assault my child which was witnessed by many other children and I have it in writing that the people at the top have called me a liar and refused to pass the attack on my child on to the police and social services (I told them myself but very little has happened).

 

It seems there is 1 rule for me and mine and another for others. I really don't know where to go and what to do next so any and all advice would be welcome. I will answer any questions where possible but I am really trying to make sure I don't identify anyone especially as it's ongoing and there are children involved. I will just confirm there is no police or social services involvement against me or my child, we had social services round who gave me and my child a clean report and said the whole thing was completely silly so I have that in writing. The original child who complained to me is practically related to the other adult present and I believe that is where this came from but I don't know and I also believe that it has been pushed through this way because the other volunteer was having an affair with higher up decision maker at the organisation (they have since admitted to be in a relationship which I suspected at the time but now confirmed and this person I was reporting my concerns to about the other volunteer and obviously just told them what was going on)

 

It's just this data protection stuff, the DBS who you can't write to unless they have broken the law they won't consider any submissions so I am desperate to get this sorted before this happens. Please help!

Thread title amended.

 

Rich44 I think this is something you really need to seek Qualified Legal Advice on rather than the views from a Consumer Forum.

 

We will leave it here in this forum for now.

That's why I posted in the legal forum, unfortunately legal is not an option as there's no legal aid for such things now and our income is basically next to nothing owing to ill health and disability. I have already read the DBS link thank you for posting it but thats why I was after some advice because you can't talk to DBS, you can't defend yourself.

 

I have written to them again and made a complaint to the ICO for an incomplete SAR, not processing data accurately etc but other than writing another complaint to them I don't know what else to do.

 

Even if there was legal aid available the nearest practice that does it is over 30 miles each way and because of the situation and it not being "criminal" there won't be any financial help available, same with the citizens advice they say they can't help. Just looks like they get away with lies and I get banned from volunteering everywhere I do at present and the scare story the DBS letter puts on you it could be even worse than that

I posted it for others possibly unaware what DBS is and hence the the thread title amended.

Just looking at that looks like you need to be referred there first. Think i'll try our MP he's helped before on other things maybe if he's involved they'll at least send the information so we can at least defend it. Stupid that after social services and the police closed the book with nothing needing doing they still think this is appropriate. Everything has gone wrong in the last year my dad had a horrible death from cancer, car's broken down several times, repaired and now broken again so we're stuff during the holidays, kids need shoes can't even get there to get feet measured, fridge freezer is doing an impression of a cooker and now this i'm just well wits end doesn't even come close. Thank you for the suggestion didn't even know that existed.
