    • Hi.. I would like to give you the case number, but I am concerned about Disclosure as this reference if accessed will have all my personal details. Not sure if this would be accessible by anyone but a Judge etc... Hopefully, someone on this site may know..   Regards Tom
    • Magistrates liability order hearings are simply Council staff attending the Court to allow the Council Taxpayer opportunity to provide information about ability to pay, to see if a payment arrangement can be entered into. It is an administrative process as already explained.   If you have already provided all available financial, health and other information to the Council and they are proceeding to obtain the Liability Order, this is because it enables them to use all available means including bailiffs or deductions from benefits to obtain the Council Tax arrears.   Can I suggest that you make a complaint to the Council about them not taking into account your health and hardship circumstances. Argue that they have treated you unfairly by not giving you opportunity to have your ability to pay Council Tax reviewed and this has been detrimental to your health and wellbeing.   By making the complaint, hopefully this will enable them to work with you to fully address what help the Council are able to offer. I.e. is the Council Tax amount correct with any reductions applied, have all payment options been discussed, can Council waive costs of obtaining Liability Order.
    • What is the name of the window cleaning business? Have you taken photographs of the dirty windows et cetera?
    • i would suggest that you stick to researching on here only. use our search top right for say CTAX or liability order.   you seriously have some wild theories, but those are understandable.   as i have said, there won't be a court hearing you need nor would that help you at all nor are expected to attend, it's not like that, it's merely a rubberstamp exercise .   there is no right of forced entry for bailiffs collecting CTAX debts. the bailiff process is one of a letter which will be entitled Notice of enforcement, this gives you 7 days to pay the sum it outlines with an associated fee of £75 for it being sent. the 2nd step will be a visit, you have no legal remit to engage with them at all, i i would not do so under any circumstances, that visit will add a further £235 fee those are the only things a bailiff can do. the most they can charge is a total of £310.   police do not ever get involved in civil matters like CTAX debt. not sure where you ever got that idea from.   its saturday now so use the W/end wisely, get reading up HERE ONLY it might well pay you on monday to go RING the council CTAX dept and plead poverty etc etc. it might also pay you to find the email address or even better phone number of your local MP and get him involved. they can do wonders.   dx

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

There has been no reply to the above question and so I am assuming that the claimant is prevented even from revealing that information. We have to respect their adherence to the agreement. H

deemed service is 5 days + 28 = 33 days but that was saturday so shouls have filed friday before 4pm. but anyhow as bf says give it till tomorrow or weds then 

Hi. Please help us to help you. You only have one thread to follow but we all have many times that. Which post did you put the DQ on?   HB

Yes. The next step will be that they will trot out their defence – and after that there will be a directions questionnaire and it is at that point you will have to decide if you are prepared to push forward and to pay a further fee to go to a hearing. This is Hermes testing you out and seeing how much you are prepared to spend in order to assert your rights.

Hermes will spend much more money than the whole thing is worth trying to beat you

Hi, I issued my claim on Oct 27th and Hermes acknowledged it on November 3rd but have not put forward a defence yet I can still not request a default judgement, is this right?

Well they have 28 days from the date of deemed service. That means, I think that you have to allow two business days from the date of issue of the claim and then add 28 days.

So if you issued on the 27 – let's say 28 October. Service would have occurred – let's say 30 October, to be on the safe side. Count 28 days from then. You should be able to enter judgement today – or maybe tomorrow – although it seems a little bit later than it should be. Keep on checking

What time of the day on the 27th did you issue it?

Okay. By and large they are saying that the computer was a prohibited item and therefore it was carried at your own risk. Despite this they agree that they sold you insurance on it.

They also say that it was damaged and could not be delivered – but they don't say that it was destroyed and they don't produce any evidence to say that it was damaged or why the damage was so much that they couldn't deliver it. Clearly wasn't sufficiently damaged that your address details et cetera were lost because they apparently know exactly which parcel you are talking about and they know exactly which parcel it was that they were meant to be delivering. They are completely aware of which parcel it was which was damaged and they are completely aware of the extent of the damage which allows them (they say) to say that they were unable to deliver it – or to return it to sender.

Of course it's all nonsense. They haven't produced any evidence of damage and they haven't explained why they couldn't then deliver it or return it. It's only a laptop for goodness sakes. It's not an elephant.

It's not perishable goods that started to decay in their wrapping and losing out or making smells and attracting flies et cetera. It was only a laptop.

They also made a stupid mistake because they say that you didn't insure for £245 – but they have mistaken the figure that you are claiming because £25 of that is your claim fee. They now seem to be suggesting that you should also insure your claim fee!! These people are really stupid.

 

They don't say in what way the fact that it may have been a prohibited item somehow affected the risk of it being damaged. They don't explain why they knew it was a period item and yet they agreed to carry it and also they agreed to sell you insurance.

At some point you will get an allocation questionnaire. Let us know when you get it. It will ask you which court you want to have it heard in – and she will indicate that it is your local court because you are a consumer and they are a trader. You will have to pay a fee if you are prepared to go on.

Hermes will have indicated that they want to go to mediation – and you should agree. Read around the sub- forums about mediation and how it normally goes and how you will come under pressure from the mediator to reduce the value of your claim. Read what we have to say about that and our advice to you about standing up to the mediator.

Let us know when you receive the next stage

Check the MCOl console and status of the claim...When it states Allocated...you will receive the Proposed Notice of allocation to Small claims track along with N180 Directions Questionnaire.

 

Did the court send you the defence or the claimant ?

We could do with some help from you.

You could use the following but you will still have to ring MCOL to find out the date to submit and which court it needs to be returned to.
