    • 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!

Steph,

 

yes you have indeed won, this happened to me also, lloyds failed to return there allocation questionare, i see you are from the wirral i am also and claimed at birkenhead court.

fill in the form for judgement and get it to the court asap the judge there has just given me judgement and ordered them to pay me back my £8900 forthwith (pronto)

any questions ring birkenhead court and ask for joe in case management, he is very helpfull and will tell you all you need to know in a way that you can understand it,

I think the judge there, Judge Travers knows the score and doesnt side with the banks.

 

i am just waiting for my money now, think i will give them a reminder call tomorrow.

Well done, Steph (Princess). Sounds like good news for you.

 

When were the AQs due in? Did you have to do anything, or did the judge send the reminder and strike out the claim without prompting?

 

I’m in a similar (but not so advanced) position with a claim for a friend. The AQs were due in by 2 July. I sent mine in on time but, as of a couple of days ago, the bank still hadn’t put their AQ in. The court hadn’t done anything yet because they had a big backlog of claims.

 

A lady in the Court Office thought their District Judge was going to stay all bank charges claims – she didn’t know if it would make any difference that the banks AQ was already long overdue before the OFT announcement! Or, she said, he might send them an “unless” order giving them 7 days to file the AQ (and then, possibly, still stay the claim!).

 

Any advice - Princess, or anyone? Do I just wait for the judge, or should I be doing something pro-active?

 

Incidentally, when sending in my AQ I requested an “abuse of process” strike out or, alternatively, an Order for Directions – for all the good that will have been if the claim is stayed anyway!! If the claim is now stayed, the bank will have benefited unreasonably from not sending in their AQ on time.

 

Sorry Princess – don’t mean to hijack your thread, but yours is closest I’ve seen to my case since the OFT announcement.

Cajdad i didn't hav 2 do anythin. I sent in AQ then few weeks later got a letter sayin defence had not handed their's in and that the judge was giving them an extra week. They still did not hand it in and then i got a letter sayin the judge had struck it out.

 

Ill go 2moro and apply for judgement. Its only for 700. not a great deal but a nice shoppin spree!!

 

Nice 1 Surfman! Congrats. My case is with Birkenhead aswell. I had my last 1 there against Natwest 2.

 

Good Luck cajdad!

  • 3 weeks later...

sooo. Had a letter yesterday. copy from the courts of the letter sent to lloyds.

Saying they failed to respond and so the court orders the defendant to pay the full amount forthwith. Failure to do so could result in seisure of goods to be sold.

 

It doesnt give a time frame? how long do they have to pay me? has this happend to anyone?
