Hello everyone

 

I had equita bailiffs clamp my Mrs car for my outstanding ctax bill.

She showed them her v5, insurance etc but they said they needed a receipt of purchase (which she didn't have with her at the time but has since found) to prove it was hers. They clamped the car and said they'd be back in the morning.

 

The police were called and allsorts.

 

If they don't accept the v5, insurance (in her name I'm not even a named driver), mot and the purchase receipt

can I just sit on the car and refuse to let them take it?

 

I'm going to be putting a complaint in anyway.

 

Thanks.

It was a dispute from 2015, I ignored all the letters my fault.

My missus stays round mine a couple of times a week when she's not working and they clamped her car.

I am going bankrupt anyway just waiting for the OR to sign it off.

Was more worried about my Mrs car!

It was Equita.

 

They have actually secretly came back and removed the clamp without even knocking! They must have realised they were getting nothing.

 

Given the popularity of this forum, I would like to make point for anyone else viewing this thread in the future......under the regulations introduced in 2014, a bailiff IS permitted to seize 'jointly owned goods'. I appreciate that in your particular case, your marital situation is different to most couples but I would not like other people to think that just because a wife or husband owes a particular item that it cannot be seized because IT CAN.

The OP has stated his partner is not resident at the property with him so she cannot be held jointly liable for the council tax charge on the property under s6 or s9 of the LGFA 1992. If she had been resident she would have been jointly liable under s6 or s9 (except in the case of an odd situation under s9 but there's nothing to suggest that applies here). It looks like the council took all this in account and the liability order is correctly against the OP.

 

The above being said, the specific enforcement of the liability order by the enforcement agents is actioned separately to the legislation which lead up to the granting of the order. As can be seen in this case TACE (and it's surrounding legislation) does not always sit easily or nicely with council tax legislation.

 

A couple living separately may well have intertwined interest in goods sufficient to satisfy Schedule 12 but a look at each and every situation would be needed to make the determination of ownership.

I suppose the Q needs asking is if she WAS resident at the home in 2015?

This is a little irritating DX. SS is a very knowledgeable poster, but there are others on here also. What he says is more or less what I said.

 

 

We posted to help the OP understand the legal situation, so why were these posts removed. I did not invite discussion. I think you are letting your personal feelings influence your moderation.

 

Someone asking for clarification does not mean the comments should be removed.

 

Surely it is for the poster to decide if he wants a discussion or to contribute, you run the frisk of discouraging our more clued up members, and really for no reason.

 

Of course , if the thread becomes argumentative something must be done, but this is an open forum, moving posts because you consider them to be too technical, is not helpful, the op can always get clarification on the thread. Besides the poster may fully understand what is being said.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
