    Hceo advice, offer of cash payments rejected?

    Hi Guys

    Hoping someone who is something of an hceo expert could help.

    I have a joint ccj against 2 very canny defendants., ex tenant and guarantor.

    Hceo managed to get into one the defendants homes, but concluded there was not enough assets to cover the debt. I asked did they fill in a controlled goods agreement at all but they say no due to the aforementioned lack of assets. The defendant did however offer to pay instalments but the hceo have not persued this whatsoever. I am surprised at this and do not understand why.

    Can anyone explain why the hceo seems uninterested in this (I have asked but they ignore my question) and advise if there is anything I can do given the defendant offered payment. I mean even if it is in instalments at £10 a month......somethings better than nothing right?


    Many thanks for any help!

    I would assume the amount would have negated any thing, plus if and when they then stop paying you would then need to go back to court and pay further.

    I am in the same situation, but I just have the CCJ registered, I plan on waiting a couple of years then try and pursue if the T's situation changes, better chance of getting something. Otherwise just write it off. My claim is over 5.5k

      As above, small instalments simply means that the canny ones stop paying after the first payment knowing that it will cost more to go back to court than its worth.

          Does G not own their home?

            Get a charging order on their house (if they have one)...

              Thank you all for your kind replies, for the clarification and sorry for my delay in responding.

              ash72 - yes my debt is the same level as yours. I have been watching them for over a year, so far, and like you, will continue to do so to see if their circumstances change.

              Guarantors house is in his girlfriends name, cars are not registered to him either. He has no means to his name, that I can see, but still manages his holidays in Marbella and Dubai!

              The only other avenue I think I can pursue at the moment is I know who the ex tenant works for.....so maybe get an attachment of earnings.

              Thanks once again for all your help!

                I once did the paperwork for an attachment of earnings. The debtor was mortified that their employer would find out about the debt and paid it in full the next day....

                  How was he ever accepted as a Guarantor?

                    Thanks for your reply islandgirl, that’s encouraging to hear!

                    DPT57 - my thoughts exactly, it was done via a god awful negligent letting agent, who I no longer use, who assured me all was fine, and the necessary checks all done and in place.

                      Hello!

                      The issue is they have lived at a property which they’ve rented now for 2 years just over, never missed a rental payment and never had any issues,...

                      I agree with one of the other posts, Company A should have sorted the whole job, it sounds like a 10 mins job with maybe a collar for the pipework being tightened up and then some basthroom sealant ...........you are right.......... just under a ' monkey'' (Arthur Daley speak) for what is a simple pipe...

                      We have a London flat managed by an agent (full management service).

                      My husband and I were abroad, and got a call from the council saying the property was leaking sewage into the flat below. We contacted our agent immediately who sent someone around the same day (Company A).

                      What does your agreement (or terms & conditions sent) with this say about such queries, please? I'd start there first & then probably their complaints process (if they have one)

                      Is this the lettings agent on the block (of flats) management agent please?

                      The pipework was found to be sound. I think Company A were there as an emergency "see if it's sewage and shut off the water if necessary". They said it was a pipework problem and a sealant problem. Company B carried out a full audit on the pipes and found it was only a sealant problem....

                      The letting agent engaged all of them. We gave them an instruction to fix whatever the problem was after the notification from the council there was a problem - we pay for a full management service.

                      I doubt the agency will give us money back because they've paid it out directly to the contractor,...

                      In November 1979 BoE base rate hit 17% under Thatcher's government. My building society was kind by only raising their rates to 15%.....

                      IMHO rates will continue to rise. Sorry.
