Would massively appreciate your advice and am new on here so please bear with me.

 

I had a CCJ registered against my name in March but as I have no income or own nothing and have medical issues the court stated that although the judgement was ruled there was no timescale for enforcement. Role on three months later and whilst I was out my son phoned me and said there was a strange man at the door who I later found out was a High Court Enforcement Officer.

 

There were two minors in the house at the time yet he sat in his car at the end of the drive for over an hour and my kids were very scared.

I stay in the house part time and do not own it - it is owned by an ex partner and I stay over so he can see his children. I own nothing,do not work or own any property.

 

I had no notification that this person was attending the house and no correspondence at all that this had be transferred now to the high court. The ccj including costs was £870. Then this person turns up with a form now demanding £1900.!!!!

 

I spoke to him on the phone as I was very fearful my children were inside and he was causing great upset & he said I didn’t need to be there and he could gain entry if he wanted by breaking in and calling the police - again worried sick.

 

Eventually he left saying he would return Monday as he was being nice not to break in because I was questionably vulnerable. But he said to be classed as properly vulnerable I need to be terminally ill. He said it doesn’t matter if the house isn’t mine he can still break in and it if I don’t own a car but am insured on it he can take it.

 

I do have severe mental health issues and I’m petrified so your help is appreciated

He cannot break in unless he has been let in previously and taken control of goods. Usual bullying tactic, is civil so deffo no right of forced entry.

They can't take a car that isn't registered to you either.


:)I am not an expert, but I can give good advice about Brighthouse:)

 

Am learning more and more about DCA's too :)

 

I have no legal experience and all advice given is based on the knowledge I've gained from this site.

Not quite true. They can if you own it (it doesn't need to be registered to you). They can't (or at least, shouldn't) if it's owned by someone else.

You should have received a letter from them entitled Notice of Enforcement giving 7 clear days to make contact before any visit. Have you received this and if so do you still have the envelope it came in? When was the last time you moved?

If Creditor accepts payment and does not pass it on to Enforcement Co they become liable for all fees.

"He said it doesn’t matter if the house isn’t mine he can still break in and it if I don’t own a car but am insured on it he can take it."

 

 

Ah the EA is trying the "Beneficial Interest" card regarding the car, he's up the creek with that one as well Shergroup are noted for ineptitude and botched enforcements.

Despite what the court may have said, the creditor clearly wants their money and they have taken the route of transferring their writ of control to a High Court Enforcement company to collect.

 

I will first address the myths:

 

The agent is speaking complete nonsense when he claims that you need to be 'terminally ill' to be classed as vulnerable.

 

It is also a myth that he can force entry into the property. This is a civil debt.....and you are not trading as a company. There is no right to force entry.

 

It is also a myth that an enforcement agent cannot come into a property where there are minors present. As long as there is an adult present, and the agent gains 'peaceful entry' into the property he is not breaking the law.

 

It is also a myth that the enforcement agent fees can be approx £1,100. The agent made an initial visit and the fees for that visit should have been in the region of £190.

 

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2014/1/schedule/made

 

I would suggest that you write to Shergroup and outline your 'vulnerability' and provide some evidence (doctors letter etc).
