    • 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!

9. The claim will be tried during the 3 week period ("the trial window") commencing on 17 September 2007 to 5 October 2007. The provisional time stimate for the trial is 1 day and the parties must inform the court if that estimate varies.

Thank you caro I very much appreciate your offer and may well take you up on it when the time comes. Zoot contacted me and said that Bankfodder wanted to speak to me regarding the claim. I am expecting a call in the next couple of days, I will update you as soon as I know anything.

 

One thing you may be able to answer for me. As you know I am doing this claim for a very dear friend of mine. All the paperwork so far has been in his name. However I know that there is no way he would be able to stand up in court and state his claim. I am more than willing and capable (I think) of doing it. Is there anyway that I can now get my name included as his representative without disrupting everything.

 

I would appreciate any info you can give me on that.

 

 

Regards

 

Lizzy

I understand that you can be what is known as a McKenzie friend or litigants friend and just go with him on the day and speak for him. Perhaps when you submit the bundle you could just include a letter from him stating that this will be happening.

 

I don't think you could change the paperwork to reflect this, unless you were a paid professional.

Hi everyone.

 

Just to say that my friend received an offer of £10.5K today which he is going to accept. Not the outcome I wanted, I was quite willing and in an odd way quite looking forward to taking the claim to the wire. However it is his money and he has made his decision.

 

Can I take this opportunity to thank everyone, especially caro and zoot, for all their help and encouragement. A donation will follow in due course.

 

I can now concentrate on my own claims against Yorkshire and Abbey.

 

Once again many thanks to you all for your help and support.

 

Best Regards

I was looking forward to coming to court with you Lizzy, but maybe we can do it on your claim. If your friend is happy with the outcome that's the main thing.

 

I can understand him settling now rather than waiting months and risking the case in fast track. Did he get all his charges, and just lose the interest?

 

Oh and congratulations. Don't sign the discontinuance until you get the cheque.

 

What's Best for You?

Hello Caro, Zoot, Lizzie and anyone else who may be able to advise me.

 

I am claiming 11K as a Limited Company against YB and am at the AQ stage and have been asked to complete N150. My confusion is:

 

1. should I try to go for small claims

 

2. should I use the Draft Order for Directions as suggested by GARYH and Bankfodder in the General - New strategy for AQs posts 2 and 3

 

3 Do I request an order of Standard Disclosure or use the special directions outlined by GARYH which requests that the case be taken to small claims

 

I thought everything was pretty clear until I have read a few threads and now I'm a little worried about making the correct entries on the AQ.

My thread is in Yorkshire Bank section HIGGGY V YORKSHIRE BANK, and if you read this you will notice that I have submitted a N244 to amend the POC. My AQ has to be submitted by 7th June (Thurs).

Does anyone know that if the judge accepts my N244, will the AQ have to be re-submitted?
