    • Let's say you didn't pay (you did of course, but just for the sake of argument) and Smart Parking are in the right.   They need to pursue the driver of the car.  They know who the keeper of the car is from the DVLA, but that's not the same thing, lots of cars are driven by more than one person, my son often drives my car for example.  It's a big problem for them.   So they got parliament to pass a law, POFA 2012, where, if the keeper refuses to name the driver, then liability can be passed to the keeper, but only under certain conditions - such as sending out the paperwork within 14 days.  Usually they are too lazy, stupid & arrogant to do this, as in your case.   That's why dx said not to appeal, as unfortunately when appealing most motorists out themselves as the driver,    
    • no sure how much car is worth, it  is on 2010 plate , Subaru Forester XC BOXER D ,  got about £3k left on it to pay
    • Yes - it was , didn’t say what application for    how can I object if have no knowledge of what application they have done , just that ordered to be listed for hearing - seven days up yesterday according to latest post    I’m happy to have a hearing , just don’t want judgment without a hearing    I just want the opportunity to defend myself -  Money claims judge ordered a hearing - that’s fine  but local court saying , doesn’t matter it’s what our judge says - that’s what worries me    why do I have to be on speed dial to court because the claimant ignore all procedures and protocols    the application should have been served with their evidence to me 
    • I know cheers dx, i have been reading on the forum, i have read that because its over 14 days there out of time? Can any one clarify what exactly that means, thanks

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

I had an outstanding council tax debt of £79.20 for last years council tax 2017.

 

Today out the blue I got a visit from 2 sheriff officers and now my council tax has doubled to £158.30. They have doubled my debt! I am on ESA.

 

How the hell is this legal, The council tax year only started in April. This seems completely out of order and so hurried for such a small debt, They never even gave me a chance to pay, Now they are saying the fees can't be removed cause they sent officers out.

 

This has enraged me, What can i do? Thanks

Ah right I see. This is completely out of order what they have done.

 

Really not happy. Thanks for putting me in the right forum.

Do you know if the outstanding was added to this years total? If not then it does sound as if they obtained a Liability Order, or whatever the Scottish equivalent is called, against you. Have you had any notifications about proposed proceedings from either Council or Sheriffs Officers?

No my current year is being billed as 18/19.

 

The debt they are enforcing is 17-18 and it says the council went and got a summary warrant at the court on the 24th april, Stirling park sent me a letter and it's dated 2nd of may. It's only the 22nd of May.... How the hell can they just justify sending out sheriff officers and adding a cost of £79.10.

 

Things have been extremely difficult right now, And for by all that I am to go for an ESA assessment and had to get all my documents in order.

 

I dont know.

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...

Ok, So here is an update.

 

I spoke to Stirling park via phone,

Spoke to a guy who understood my issues,

 

Went to speak to his "manager" or someone higher.

Came back and said the £79.10 sheriff fees have been removed and account on hold.

Because they council have directly went to DWP and asked for a reduction.

 

I suffer from severe mental health issues.

This has completely put me of course for today.

 

Why have they done this and allowed this to happen in the way it did,

I understand It's my debt etc and needs to be paid.

 

But why send officers out when they are going to take money from my benefits regardless?

 

Thanks
