    • Hopefully you've been able to get this sorted out. Can you update us because you're not the only one encountering problems with Currys returns.
    • It says only 30 days to respond. Can I still respond?   Here they are:     Letter beforeclaim_compressed.pdf
    • Thanks @Man in the middle Yes, Mr Keedwell was a bit of a plonker, and i would never advocate Mrs O going down that road. She needs to learn, and FAST - the next one is 6 months off, and she works 30 miles away!
    • Yes Manxman has near enough covered it. Your wife must prove to the court that the measurement in her particular case cannot be relied upon. She will be hard pushed to do that. Showing that "this might have happened" or "that may have malfunctioned" will not do.   She should be offered a speed awareness course for that speed provided she has not done one of the applicable type (there are three) within the last three years. This will cost her about £100 and three or four hours of her time but, crucially, no points. If she does not fancy that or it is not offered the alternative is a fixed penalty of £100 and three points.   Nobody is entitled to any evidence before court proceedings begin. Drivers can ask for "any photographs which may help identify the driver." Obviously they should do so before responding to the Section 172 request for driver's details. Some areas provide them, others do not and there is no obligation to do so. The photographs rarely help identifying the driver as they are designed to identify the vehicle, not the driver. Identifying the driver is the duty of (in the first instance, at least) the Registered Keeper. Those photographs usually only form the evidence (if it is needed) to identify the vehicle. Evidence to substantiate the speed alleged will come either from the automatic device or, in the case of a manned device or a vehicle stop, by the operator or police officer who measured the speed.   You can see from the link provided by Manxman about Mr Keedwell's case, the perils of defending an allegation solely on the basis that the driver was "certain they were not exceeding the limit." Your wife would do well to accept whatever out of court offer is made.
    • Thanks for your sage advice, @Manxman in exile and @dx100uk   I'm surprised she was going that fast on that particular stretch of road, but there is a reason why West Mercia's finest stake it out on such a frequent basis. I'm not here to defend her (nor was i with her, or i would have suggested she moderates her speed), just wondering if there is case-history of these cameras being challenged. You have answered that very clearly, for which you have my thanks.   Time for her to suck it up, i suspect (again )   EDIT: Part of me was wondering if the camera might get it wrong if the view was interrupted by a lorry or something (the van was on the opposite side of the road).

Hi

 

Thank you for allowing me to post on your informative website.

 

I am after some advice please.

 

A CCJ was entered against me, mid May this year for £2300.

 

I’m not disputing that I don’t owe this money.

 

I have received a notice of enforcement from Shergroup Enforcement telling me that if I don’t contact the by 5pm on the 23/6 I can expect a visit at home☹️.

 

The letter only arrived this morning.

 

What should I do if they turn up.

Obviously I won’t answer the door to them or sign anything.

The property belongs to a housing association.

 

I have a car but it is on finance but I’m guessing to be on the safe side I should hide it.

 

I have two vulnerable children at home both under the age of 16.

 

I will be able to clear the debt in full in a couple of months.

 

Thanks

J

The ccj is from 17/5/18.

As I said I should be able to pay the debt off in full by mid/end of July as the deceased’s property will be sold.

Thanks J

not sure exactly which direction to go:

 

ring shergroup and tell them that [and that you are going for an N245]

 

ring the court an tell them it will be paid by xx date and what do they recommend?? N245?

 

or both?

What date is on the Notice of Enforcement you have received?

Do you still have the envelope it came in?

If so how was it posted?

 

I note what you say about making contact and will suggest if no contact made by tomorrow they could well turn up on Sunday.

Do not let them in they have no right of entry regardless of anything they may say.

 

In the meantime you need to download and fill in an application for a Stay of Execution against the Writ.

 

Depending on answers above will give grounds for application.

It does appear you will have no grounds to have the matter Set Aside but could go for a Variation allowing you to pay at a reasonable rate without all their fees.

 

They will be looking at payment in full only and may not entertain a voluntary payment plan.

Possibly not much can be done at this time on a Friday.

what estate did they have?

estate is stuff like property, cash, stocks and shares, important works of art or collections. It is not stuff like furniture or other effects, personal jewellery car and so forth.

 

Lastly why did it get to a court claim, funeral directors normally give people a year to cough up as the deceased is supposed to pay for their own funeral ( they all create a contract with the living though or people would do the dirty).

 

If they had an estate did they leave a will?

If not then unless you had permission from the govt it isnt your place to make decisions in this regard.

 

Hate to say it but bodies get left in mortuaries for a long time sometimes so unless you are the nearest relative you act of kindness has been misplaced and it has now come back to bite you and the other relatives shuld be ashamed.

That would depend on the circumstances surrounding the deceased's estate. Your statement is certainly inaccurate and given the nature of the subject, unnecessary scaremongering.

The Taking Control of Goods Regulations 2013 states any day of the week but the Taking Control of goods National Standards while not legally binding states "Enforcement agents should be respectful of the religion and culture of others at all times. They should carefully consider the appropriateness of undertaking enforcement on any day of religious or cultural observance or during any major religious or cultural festival" which arguably covers Sundays being a day of religious observation as that is why Bank Holidays and Christmas Day are considered to be inappropriate.

show me where this is wrong,

a person has to apply for a grant of representation.

 

If there is no estate then nothing to administer but the law is fixed on how things are done and who gets what.

 

As for scaremongering,

i am trying to point out that they may have not been liable for the debt in the first place and as an addition to that it may be possible to get the CCJ set aside on the grounds that they arent liable for the debt but the actual next of kin.

that person or persons is also determined by law and also the pecking order.

We can enforce on bank holidays.

And you are correct on 6am to 9pm OR normal trading hours if a business.

Yes thats correct, we see time and time again where family arrange the funeral for a deceased relative where the estate of the deceased had no funds or assets. The relatives or even the friends that organise it then pay for the funeral.

 

Best bet would be to ring the EA(ask the office for his number). Ask him to come round to assess your circumstances.

Show him the car finance details, he wont have an interest in that then.

If you have little to no goods of value in the house, then there will likely be nothing for him to do but look to set an arrangement with you.

Feel free to refuse him access. Its your right to do so.

But if you are confident you have nothing of resale value in the house, then its not an issue as he probably wouldnt even threaten a removal.

Unfortunately the person who arranged this is the one responsible.

If a person arranges the funeral of a deceased person and agrees to a contract to provide that service, that person is then liable for the debt. Voluntarily paying for a funeral has nothing to do with a grant of representation, it is a separate issue from administering the estate. Yes, the funeral cost could have been met from any equity in the estate but that did not happen.
