    • i suspect the charge on the Land registry site against the house reads:   2. (XX.XX.2007) RESTRICTION: No disposition of the registered estate is to be completed by registration without a certificate signed by the applicant or his conveyancer that written notice of the disposition was given to XX Council at P.O. Box XX, STREET, TOWN, POSTCODE, being the person with the benefit of a Charge under Section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   ..............   that is a restriction k and is useless to the council, as all 'legally' your have to do is inform them AFTER the house has been sold . then it's too late money has gone.   dx
    • I have got a copy of the charge. The Land Registry responded to say that the document attached to the RX1 was as follows. The A4 document headed 'Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983 and National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990' is a statutory charge. However as the person concerned (your late father) was one of joint proprietors of the property, the charge could not be registered or noted. Instead it was protected by registration of a restriction.   This is a statutory charge that has arisen under section 22 of the Health and Social Services and Social Security Adjudications Act 1983.   Unfortunately the Land Registry blog was discontinued on 30 June 2020 [I only found out today!] they're waiting for a new platform which could take a few weeks - so I haven't been able to obtain any other advice, other than what I found in the Hardwick and co website today which stated that S22 of HASSA had been repealed and stated that    After 1 April 2015 a Local Authority will only be able to recover unpaid care home fees by securing a judgment debt either in the County Court or the High Court (s69(1) of the Act). and The Act increases the time limit for the recovery of a debt comprising of unpaid care home fees from three years to six years from the date the sum becomes due   hence I thought that as the fees had not been paid and more than 3 years had elapsed that perhaps the charge was no longer extant?    If the restriction is such that the CS only has to notify the council [and there's no restriction on me selling] then I thought the sale could proceed while I continue to battle it out with the council. Who haven't been in touch now since 2016.   This is all very complicated - I'm sure it could be simplified!!   Thank you      
    • You've been here since 2013 so you must be aware that the tell people all the time to read our customer services guide and to record their calls. We try to remind people that if they don't record their calls then sooner or later they will regret it. I think if you do anything morning telephone you should have read our customer services guide first because then you would have the evidence you need to persuade people that you did take the action that you saved it. I suspect one of the problems it will be managing to establish that you let people know in advance. If there is a delivery which signed for that you may find that Amazon and also your bank may not be very happy about helping you out. Although the bank may activate the chargeback, they may later on after a further "investigation" for the money back from you. Suggest that you send Amazon an SAR.  
    • Thanks. Do I go to the bank and ask for this, or is this something I have to apply for outside the bank?

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi

 

Can someone please advise whether my car is exempt from being seized by Bailiffs for a debt of £1700 when it's only worth about £400-£500.

It's also vital as my role as carer for my two autistic children, it's not an official disability car but I'm their registered carer and need it to take them to appointments and to and from school as public transport is a no go due to their condition.

 

As I understand vehicles with a value less that £1350 that are needed for work are exempt, does my role as a carer put me in this category?

 

Thanks

Lisa

You will get better advice from someone else, but if that really is the value of the car then it doesn't seem to me to be appropriate to take it in the face of a debt of £1700. More importantly, there is the issue of vulnerability.

 

Which enforcement company it that you are dealing with?

Its with Equita.

The car is a 54 plate Peugeot 206 and not in great condition.

I have emailed the council today pointing out I refuse to give the Bailiffs anything and the situation with my children etc, But I wanted to know where I stand in regards to whether my car is seen as being vital so cannot be seized

I'm afraid emailing the council with that kind of message is probably not going to be very helpful. Did you receive that advice here or somewhere else on the Internet?

 

I think that the point that you need to emphasise to everybody is that you are responsible for two vulnerable children and that the car is needed because you are their registered carer. Have you been given a telephone number for equity? I think that you need to contact them directly – and as soon as possible. You should read our customer services guide and implement the advice there and then telephone them. However, it also to make email contact with them and once again to explain that you are the registered carer of two autistic children and that you need the vehicle. You can then go on to say that in any event, the value of the vehicle is £400-£500 and that if it was sold at auction it would probably fetch even less – probably a bare scrap value and that it would not be reasonable to consider that this item should be taken for a debt of £1700.

 

However, you should emphasise your vulnerability. I suggest that you do exactly this with the council as well – but do it formally, beginning with somebody on the telephone and then follow-up by email with everything that you have said. Get reference numbers for your telephone conversations – and as I have said, read our customer services guide first

Good morning Lisa,

 

As I think you probably already know, the vehicle will not be considered 'exempt'. For clarity, this is from the Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013:

 

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2013/1894/part/1/crossheading/exempt-goods/made?view=plain

 

Exempt items:

 

Items or equipment (for example, tools, books, telephones, computer equipment and vehicles) which are necessary for use personally by the debtor in the debtor’s employment, business, trade, profession, study or education, except that in any case the aggregate value of the items or equipment to which this exemption is applied shall not exceed £1,350;

 

As to the position with your sons (who are both autistic) I am aware from your earlier posts last year that they are both in receipt of DLA, Mobility element and care element. Are you not entitled to a Blue Badge?

 

Is this debt that is now with Equita the same as the one that was with Penham Excel last summer?
