    • 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..        
    • Hi there, the company name on the bit of paper is:   Bristow & Sutor   Says the total amount £990.49 and this includes £235 enforement stage fees,  The CTAX was owed to North Tyneside Council. The guy also said that it wasn't just for CTAX. Other debts were combined.   I did leave other debts behind too when I moved. Perhaps a utility bill, credit card debts and a Provi doorstep loan.   I think the guy said that he would be back Saturday too. This is what I'm trying to avoid multiple visits. Don't want my mam to get upset.   Thanks for the help.   Bear

Hi,

 

I have one of the tumble dryer that were highlighted as a fire risk.

 

We did even have a fire in the dryer before the reported risk. The company came out and looked at it and changed something and said it was fine.

 

After the risk, they came out again and replaced whatever it was.

 

I have since had them out another 2 times as the plug and dryer get very hot and it trips the electric.

 

Both times they have said there is a fluff build up causing it, fixed it and have gone.

 

I am once again unable to use the dryer as it trips the electric.

 

I rely on my tumble dryer heavily as I have a disabled child with wetting problems so am really struggling with drying the clothes and bedding.

 

Can anyone offer any advice?

Please can you tell us when did you buy it, who did you buy it from, what makers it.

 

Who would also be a good idea to post up a bullet pointed chronology of events – referring to all the times that it has tripped the fuse or that somebody has been out to deal with it.

 

I think that frequency and regularity of occurrence would be important here

We bought it in 2013, it's a hotpoint tumble dryer.

 

We had a fire in it and of 2015 and they came out.

 

They then made the modification after the risk warning in January 2017.

 

They came out again towards the end of 2017 as it was tripping the electric after working for a while.

 

They came out again around feb/March 2018 for the same problem.

 

Now it trips the electric after it is on for a few minutes.

the earth leakage trip is unlikely to be the same issue as the fire hazard and could be either a design flaw or a fault with your particular machine that they havent used an engineer with the relevanmt skills to spot. I would suggest that they need to send smomeone with a decent grounding in electronics to put a suitabe probe on the machine before you switch it on and them monitor things like the neutral and earth whilst it is running and them hopefully spot what happened when it trips out. Testing it when it is cold and dry wont be enough, it need a soak test
