    • 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 Stu and dx1000uk,   I have done the online assessment and as I suspected I already receive the maximum benefits available to me.   Yes I was referring to the fact that some times I know that non-payment of council tax can lead to imprisonment so thanks for clarifying.   let's say I can't make their demands for payment and they do send bailiffs in, I assume these are the type of bailiffs I can just not let in and then after a certain amount of attempts they give up right? does the council then not send the police round? This is what I can't work out and worries me.   The council already know that I am struggling and can't make the payments but when do I get my chance to tell a court or the police that it's not that I don't want to pay but that I can't pay?    Walshy

    • 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!

Bristol Water - Small Claims or Mediation?


Recommended Posts

Quote

 

Afternoon,

received "notice of proposed allocation to the small claims track" which needs completing by 10th December 2020. I need advice on whether take this down small claims or Mediation. I have asked the company to send me a breakdown of the account to ascertain the validity of the amount they are claiming, they have only sent copies of the bills and no payment breakdowns. I included this in my defence but  still nothing,   I have digital receipts that contradict the amount they are claiming and wrote to them stating that I need an account summary as they have not taken into consideration the money we have paid. Now we have "notice of proposed allocation to the small claims track" form pack sent instead of the information we have requested.

 

So is it Small Claims or Mediation.

So if you owe a debt and it is just the amount that is in question, ask for mediation.

the four bills mentioned are combined water and sewage.

totally agree with you why did they let her go on for so long?

 

The defence I took the template from this site but amended that the POC did not have an account number nor was there any supporting paper work referring to the debt. That we have requested this information in order to prepare our defence.

I am a Bristol/Wessex water customer and those amounts quoted look like standard annual charges for unmetered water and sewerage,  

 

If you have been paying them the regular monthly amounts, I wonder whether the amounts paid have been credited to the correct Bristol/Wessex account.

 

Bristol/Wessex have fairly long customer account numbers.  

 

How were you paying amounts to Bristol/Wessex ?

We could do with some help from you.

Get hold of Bank statements or list of payments from your Bank and compare it to what Bristol Wessex are saying through mediation.

 

What is your financial position now to enter into repayment of amount owed ?

Okay will go through the statements today and her financial position is to make an offer of a monthly repayment in addition to paying the normal monthly payments.
