    • 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!

Hi, i have been lookin at the martin lewis site and following his template letter (for a change) I have sent 1st warning and recvd letter deniying unlawfull etc and on lewis' site it says send another letter just to say you belive they r unlawfull an you will start court action in 7 days. Do you think i should put in it that i have previously won 4K from Natwest so they know i no its unlawfull?

 

I thought maybe its worth a shot to save goin thru the court process..

 

 

Any thoughts????

Hi Steph,

 

The next letter you need to send is a Letter Before Action - not sure whether this is what it is called on the Martin Lewis site as I haven't even seen those letters - but if it isn't then I think you should use the template from this site (Letter Before Action). It won't cause any problems to and ideally you should give them 14 days before you begin action - it shows the court you're giving them a chance to settle. :)

 

I don't want to seem like I'm being really negative but there's no point in referring to any claims against other banks previously as it becomes irrelevant when you're dealing with a different bank, and they won't pay any attention anyway. It certainly won't make any difference to your claim.

 

Just proceed as normal and you will get there. Good luck.

The first letter should be a preliminary approach to the bank to refund the charges giving them 14 days to do so.

 

If after that they have not responded or not responded favourably you then need to send an LBA giving them another 14 days notice of your intention to file a claim with the court.

 

If they do not respond or do not respond favourably to that then you file a claim.

 

You may want to read the help sections and library where there are many posts to help you along your way as well as templates for most of the letters you will be sending to the bank, court and [problem]

Hi , I think before you do anything else you need to read the FAQ's here .

 

You also need to work out if you will be following another sites advice or this sites advice and stick with your choice , as you say another site is giving you different time scales .We advise 14 days for your prelim letter and 14 days for your LBA letter this is because you have to show that you have tried to settle your claim and court action was the last resort .A court will look at 28 days being a reasonable time .

When you want to fool the world, tell the truth. :D
