    Neelix- To check insurance on that link I need to state on the declaration that it is my vehicle.

    Berlingogirl - The car parking space is allocated to the flat outside the building. There are no debris anywhere. It is quite a clean area, well kept. I will take a photo. I need to have proof that he is using the car. I saw him driving it and neighbours say he is using it but maybe not very often - shopping etc as the T. works from home.

    If he'd not been driving the car for the 3 months due to no MOT there would be leaves and other debris around the car especially the wheels and there would be a build up of sand/soil in and around the gutter (if parked on the road) where it's parked. Take a photo, dated if possible. You might be able to use this later as evidence.

    Neelix - I am enforcing the judgement via HCEO. The T. does not open the door when they come and does not reply to their phone calls. The only option available is to take his car but so far HCEO have not done in. I am trying to establish the reason why - see above.

    Sounds it to be honest, auction prices with no keys or documents will be a lot less than book value

    I agree with the above, i suspect the officers did not want the hassle and paperwork for a crappy car.

    My experience when dealing with bankrupts is the cost of seizing the car and putting it into an auction with a low value vehicle isn't worth the hassle, for what will probably only be 300 quid or so. The leverage they can get through seizing the car can make it worthwhile though. Taking their car really hurts debtors.

    The artfullodger - but how can I prove that I saw him driving the car ? He will say he did not drive it.

    Ted E Bear - hopefully I will get a clearer picture tomorrow of why they have not clamped the car yet as I have complained to someone in senior position.

    Possibly you are right in your assumption. Maybe the Enforcement Officer is not sure what to do.

    I think the different address is just an excuse from the bailiffs, they obviously don't want to deal with a fairly low-value car. The registration doesn't even need to be in the correct name and they can seize it.

    I wonder what address he has given his insurance company ....... if it is a different one to where he lives and the vehicle resides then it could be invalid and they may well revoke it, also the V5 is only who the keeper is not the owner, i thought they could seize it and ask for his bill of sale.

    It would be better to get a specialist window fitter or someone recommended by the manufacturer rather than use the 'go to guy'.

    I'm looking into having a new front door, living room and first floor windows fitted to my rental property, and the letting agency "go to guy" really doesn't inspire confidence when I met him today! (On other quotes for different work) He mentioned that the glass needs to be toughened if...

    Yes if the windows are below a certain height, they need to be toughened glass so that someone can't accidentally break it. If they are at standard level then no toughened glass is required. Also windows need to be a certain width in case of fire.

    FENSA is only the body that regulates the...

    As the T has stated, there isn't much more you can do, see if they leave in Oct, if not follow up with proceeding to the courts and eventually bailiffs if they have not left.

    Our tenants have broken the tenancy agreement 9 times - painting my kitchen cupboards and chopping down trees. So it’s section 21. My issue is. We allowed 3 dogs and were told they would be housed outside and they intended to build a kennel. This hadn’t happened, instead they seem to be converting...

    Congratulations Perce. I’m so happy to hear this is over. You have been through total hell with this. I remember the support you gave me - and how upbeat and optimistic you were about it all. Yours was 16 months, mine was 21 months. I’ve left the place empty. Cannot bear dealing with it or hearing...

    Hello All

    Update : My tenant has no plans to move out before bailiffs arrive which is imminent. I have no clue what the bailiffs will do. He will start complaining that he has nowhere to go although he lives somewhere else just keeps his stuff in the property for free, he might say...

    Thanks Ash and Artful, yes the tenant has already paid the 1st month at the new rate, As you suggest Ash, I will write back to them confirming the new rate.
