    • As I recall the only thing you tried telling us was based on a quote that you selectively edited by Lord James of Blackheath. You misrepresented it as a statement of fact when it was actually a question which was laughed at by his peers in the House of Lords.  We told you it was garbage, you asked us to prove it and we did.   Remember?
    • you need to realise that for every person that does come to CAG and register and tell their story...there are poss 10'000 that don't but search the interweb whereby threads that are here pop up relating to like issues they are searching upon.   Most CAG siteteam and many other registered Caggers give advice that bears this in mind and post information which not only informs the starter of a thread upon what to do, but also takes into consideration the readers from the interweb that also read the relevant advice given that might not be brave enough to register and fess up.   to that end, there is very little alternative than to appear to give 'grief' [you deserve it - tough] to a cagger should certain previous advice not have been followed.....yours is a very classic case of such. hey I've found a backdoor CCJ.   to put it bluntly, had you have followed such previous advice, you most certainly would not be in the situation you are in here now.. .so by example, not giving you grief, for future readers...………..   ...never ever move without informing a debt owner of a move of address on any consumer debt that you last used or paid within the last say 7yrs. your credit file is a major key to ascertaining that information.... .but don't just read this advice come to the consumeractiongroup.co.uk website and let us help.   lecture over... what can you do..or more importantly....what can a claimant do now they have a default forthwith judgement against you. well we can't guess.... they might simply ignore it as 1000's of people with CCJ's find out..but it becomes an issue should you wish to say get a mortgage, remortgage or further credit.   i'm not going to enter into any of that here...that's for the reader to start a thread here and seek advice on their individual situation specific to them as you have done....   so...  bearing the all of the above in mind...over to you with regard to this backdoor CCJ.   as for the other debts that you didn't action before...go read your old thread and action what appropriate advice is given there for each type of debt that has been given should you wish to avoid any further backdoor CCJ's.   dx                    
    • hello my very good helpful friend. I am afraid to say that i did not. As i did not realise the relevance of it.   Should i be doing this right now of anyone on my credit file ?   Plz don't give me grief if u have already advised me...   do i do the ccs request now to everybody in that thread ?    
    • 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..

Ok I'll try to keep this short

 

 

Bought a car, broke down still awaiting the V5 and fully intend to scrap the car but will also remove some parts from it before it goes. In the meantime the car is whole and in tact and looks in roadworthy condition with MOT.

 

 

 

The car is parked on social housing landlord car park and is SORN'd, untaxed but does have current MOT. Have had issues with neighbours and ASB for which I involved the police. They have moaned at the landlord saying the car is "abandoned" to get at me.

 

 

The council came out and put a notice on the car last week:

 

 

Polite Notice

Refuse Disposal Amenity Act 1978 (as amended by clean neighbourhoods and environment act 2005)

Road Traffic the removal and disposal of vehicles and regulations 1984

 

 

Reg*********

Make xxxxxx

 

Model xxxxxxxxxxx

 

Colour xxxxxxxxx

 

Location xxxxxxxxxx

 

 

 

Vehicle reported as abandoned, if you have information relating to this vehicle or are the owner/keeper please contact the environmental protection team at xxxx if no information is received by x July the vehicle may be removed and destroyed

-------------------------------

 

 

That is complete there's no date or other details on the notice.

 

 

 

I emailed them immediately telling them the car isn't abandoned at all and up until today I hadn't heard anything from them. I have emailed them chasing up a reply and just got a curt email from someone with no job title saying contact the landowner yet it wasn't the landowner that put the notice on the car that was the council.

 

 

I have no intention of leaving the car there any length of time, i've submitted a V62 to the DVLA to get the V5 as I haven't had one for the car yet and once I have it i'll get a scrappy to collect it. Unfortunately I hadn't acted as quickly as I could've done due to disabilities and ill health.

 

 

So what's the legalities with removing the car in this way how much time do I have? The car is MOT'd until September but is SORN at present and quite happy to get the car gone as soon as I have the paperwork to do so.

Social housing car park IS NOT private property.

Its akin to sorn-ing your car and parking it on Tesco's.

Park it on your drive.

If I had a drive it'd be on it we don't even have a road let alone a driveway. Did I mention it broke down, can't remember if I did now or not but either way I can't move it myself. I will scrap it but the local company wants a V5 (not unreasonably) to collect it and it hasn't turned up yet. I've now done a V62 to request one but obviously this takes time hence the question.

 

The note was banging on about it being abandoned that's all it is talking about nothing else and as I have told them it is not abandoned this notice says nothing about SORN nor tax etc it just literally says it's abandoned and for which I was asking advice especially as it's undated too.

 

 

I have since had an email from someone with no job title just a name saying contact the landowner despite the fact it wasn't the landowner that put the notice on the car

The council cannot take it without the land owners [even if a general one beforehand] permission

 

Same goes for tescos bushy..its private land.

No one even the council can rockup and take it without permission

 

Simply tell the council its not dumped...rich44

Thank you dx100uk

 

 

So that's all I have to do in relation to the notice? I told them immediately that the vehicle is not abandoned it's parked awaiting the V5 so it can be scrapped and i've emailed the landowner to tell them the same. Hopefully the DVLA will respond quickly to the V62 and can get this gone.

 

 

Thank you

Just a quickie, got the car without a v5c. How long ago did you apply via v62 to get it?

As they write to Las known keeper and give 28 days to have them reply.

Grace period of 5 working days either side so it could be up to 38 days before they will process a v5c to you

 

Or was it a lost v5c?

Thanks, it was last week I sent it off. I suppose I might get lucky and one of the other scrappies I have contacted might take it without the full V5C

You'll need the full v5c to enable them to give you your scrappage certificate.

Dont let them take it without one.

there may be somehting in your tenancy about this but if there isnt then the council will have to rely on s99 of the 1984 Road traffic regulation act that gives them powers to remove ABANDONED vehicle from private land if certain criteria are met.

 

so for example, is it in a condition that may cause danger to someone?

The council has to serve papers in a certain way and without a V5 to show you are keeper you may well be clobbered by the 15 days notice period.

 

it makes me wonder what circumstances the council believe give them cause to think it is abandoned as they will have to show why they thiink that is so and just someone reporting it isnt enough. imagine all those classic car restorers having their garages raided just because their pride and joy is in bits
