#1 Bailiff for PCN at old address - I think I'm classed as vulnerable

Post by Ferrit » 14 Nov 2017 23:51

Hi

This issue has come to light as my old landlord told me bailiffs came round for me. It was for PCN that I sent a cheque for to Manchester council. They said didn't receive it. I did a TE9 form saying I made representations to the council and that I had sent the cheque. I thought it was sorted as didn't hear anything else. I moved a while ago so it must have taken a long time.

I called the council they said they can't deal with it as with equita. I got the letters off my old landlord and called the bailiff mobile. I explained I'd moved and I was going to contact the court and try to get it sent back. He was very rude and said this was his job and put the phone down!

I have called TEC and they have sent me the out of time form TE7 and TE9. I am trying to get a Drs note as I suffer with depression ( for a long time) Drs aware of my situation. Also I'm a single mum and the council know that from my council tax single person discount.

I'm worried my Drs note my take a few days and they might find my new address etc in the mean time.

Questions
1 I read somewhere I can try to get the bailiff fees removed as I'm vulnerable? Or get the council to take it back from them?
2 should I wait for Drs note about depression etc? The court form says have to send all evidence for the out of time form together or won't be used

I have moved a few times recently due to family issues and I may have received an equita letter at the address but not got them as somebody else may have opened it. I moved in September and the bailiff came 2nd Nov

Thanks and any help much appreciated

Hi

Have I posted this in the correct place?
Any advice really appreciated
I went to the doctors today but will take a week for my doctors note confirming I suffer with depression and it will also have my new address

Should I wait for this or just send my out of time TE7 to TEC? I plan to say I didn't receive the notice of enforcement (or other letters) as moved address due to domestic issues ( backed up by doctors note)

Or should I contact the council and say I am a lone parent suffer with depression and I can I deal directly with the council?

Thanks

Get yourt doctor to complete a MALG evidence form. The regulations state the bailiff cannot take control of goods from line vulnerable people and may not recover fees or costs from them.



Also I'm a single mum and the council know that from my council tax single person discount.

I'm worried my Drs note my take a few days and they might find my new address etc in the mean time.
Invite the council to withdraw enforcement action because you are a vulnerable person for the purpose fo civil enforcement.

Get all your evidence together, and invite the council to cease enforcement until it had considered your evidence.

That means you may not have been given a Notice of Enforcement. Enforcement would fail: http://www.dealingwithbailiffs.co.uk/TC ... tion6.html
