Bromley County Court counter closure.

Image of good idea to close the County Court Counters, affidavits sworn in on appointment only suits the City of London Bailiffs and saves time.As from 3 March 2014 Bromley County Court like many other London County Courts closes it's public counter. As far as we are concerned this is a good move by HMCTS.
The time spent in the queue of time wasters who don't read the correct forms correctly, can't fill in the forms correctly and those who just want free legal advice, has wasted hours of our time and others.
Appointments only! Very much welcomed and not a problem as demonstrated by Lambeth County Court only last year. Simply! Just pick up the phone and make an appointment at a time that suits you.
Well done HMCTS.

Getting the right Solicitor

It really does beggar belief!
The amount of people who instruct a Solicitor to act on their behalf in matters far beyond the appointed Solicitor's field of expertise and, the amount of Solicitors who try and bluff their way through these matters.
We have recently seen a case where, an immigration Solicitor had taken on a Tenant versus Landlord matter and completely confused the Tenants Act with the Law of Property Act, a complete waste of everybody's time and money.
A good Solicitor will point you in the right direction via a referral or recommendation of a fellow professional in the required field. A bad Solicitor will attempt to bluff his/her way throughout, usually referring to written references of similar past case studies or, consulting the Internet (Not advisable as, the chances of the same Judge under the same circumstances is slimmer than a Postcard from the moon).  

Xmas and the New Years Process serving

Over the Christmas period we saw a huge increase for service of Non Molestation Orders and prohibited steps under the Children Act, with some Orders coming in late on Christmas Eve for immediate service. Previous January's have always been the busiest month of the year for service of Divorce petitions across the London Boroughs, a trend expected to be repeated again for 2014.

It is easy to shred peas but, you try eating them with chopsticks!
Fork in hell, that's how it can be with the civil law process of England and Wales. You can also, usually guarantee that, when you sit down to eat them peas, they will be cold.

Tenant Abandonment

With the increase in rents and the cost of living outstripping many incomes; there are more and more tenants defaulting on their rent payments and some, not all, choose to just leave rather than try and deal with the matter.

According to legal information provider Sweet & Maxwell, tenant evictions for landlord repossession have risen to 36,177 for the year to the end of June 2013, up from 33,199 in the 2011/12 via The Telegraph.

Tenant Abandonment is when a tenant leaves the property before the term of tenancy has ended and is a major problem for many landlords.

Lets be clear; whatever your thoughts and feeling are on the matter, the tenant still retains a legal tenancy and has the right to return and demand to take up residence at any time, even if they have defaulted on their rental payments!

To be able to take back an abandoned property is a difficult process and remains a grey area in regards to the legalities so landlords need to exercise a great deal of caution and ALWAYS take proper legal advice before taking any action!

So what do landlords need to be aware of?

Under Section 1 of the Protection from Eviction Act 1977, it is a criminal offence to unlawfully evict a residential occupier from rental premises without first obtaining one of the following:
voluntary surrender by the tenant - in writing is preferable, but there are circumstances where the surrender of keys is sufficient an eviction date obtained via a warrant of possession that had been lawfully obtained by due process.

There are some difficult decisions to make whether you are a landlord or the letting agent and the very first questions that need to be explored are:

1. What legal right has the landlord or agent got to re-enter the property?

2. If it is very obvious that the tenant has left for good, can the property be re-let?

3. What should happen to any of the tenant’s possessions which may have been left behind?

4. What would be the consequences if the property is re-let and the tenant returns?

The tenant could bring a civil claim for damages against the landlord, so it is worthwhile getting it right so that you don't end up with an even bigger bill.

Shoesmiths Access Legal Guide to abandonment suggest that the landlord / letting agent should:

Speak to the referees.

At the outset of the tenancy, references would have been taken. Speak to all those who provided them to find out if they are aware of the tenant's whereabouts. Are they still at their place of employment? Take notes of the time, date, and person you spoke to. Remember: you are laying a paper trail for use at a later date, if required.

Speak to the utility companies.

You may find that they are unwilling to give you any information, but if you style your questions correctly, you may be able to find out enough to help you make your decision. For instance, try just asking 'Yes' or 'No' questions, such as: "Is this person still registered as being responsible for the electric/gas/council tax at this property?" Again, take notes for your paper trail.

Speak to the neighbours.

Have they spoken to the tenants or seen them recently? Have they mentioned an imminent move? Is there any evidence of removal vans at the property? Take notes for your paper trail.

Once you have made these enquiries, you can turn your attention to the property itself.

Inside the property.

The condition of the interior of the property will help you make your decision, but the first thing you must do is gain entry.

Commercial Landlord issues

The City of London Bailiffs provide the commercial Landlord with full assistance regarding bad tenant matters that require immediate attention. Collection of outstanding commercial rent arrears will warrant a visit from our Bailiffs without prior notice to the tenant or an arranged appointment. If the tenant is unwilling to settle the arrears, we will advise the Landlord the best actions to be taken. These actions usually lead to an immediate disdain of goods or possession of the property within the next twelve hours. Locksmith, security and keyholding services following possession are provided by The City of London Bailiffs, Re-entry
by the tenant once the arrears are settled or to collect their goods is also conducted by our Bailiffs.

Motor dealerships beware of SE5 scam.

We have recently exposed a ring of fraudsters in the London SE5 area.
How they do it.
Fairly simple and effective, they purchase a vehicle from an out of London motor trader paying by credit card, then have the vehicle delivered to a SE5 address which is always a block of flats. Once the car has been delivered, a few days later the credit card company are informed by the card holder that, the transaction was not authorised, the money is then withdrawn from the motor trader's account 14 days later.
Of course, when the motor trader investigates the address given, it turns out that the purchaser of the vehicle is not known at this address and the vehicle purchased is no where to be seen.
How to prevent this happening to you.
Again, a simple way is to check that the purchaser is who he claims and where he claims he lives, is to check on that the address matches the purchaser's name.
A copy of the purchaser's driving license or passport can also be requested before delivery can take place.
Finally, without drawing too much attention!
The fraudsters tend to buy vehicles that, are in the region of 8 or 9 years old, from motor dealers in the north of England, for around £2,500 and in the form of standard silver hatchbacks (Toyota Corrolla's in particular).

The City of London Bailiffs Process serving service continues to offer the best service within London at the best price available. Collection of documents from Solicitors offices, County Courts and other business premises throughout London, followed by prompt service to hand, sworn Affidavits produced to the highest quality and detail sworn in at any London County Court or the High court and returned the same day. All this for only £58.90 + Vat. To put our service in a comparison to other process servers, "better for less" becomes a big understatement. Please shop around for other companies assurances and cost.  

Debt recovery

The City of London Bailiffs Continue to offer the lowest rates of commission on all debt recovery, only 8%. You would think that the creditor would be very happy paying a Bailiff eight pence in the pound for collecting their money but, still we get the odd creditor wanting to receive the full 100% owed.
We, as Bailiffs do not endure the stress, grief, abuse and violence in collecting money from debtors for the love of it, we do it because we are duty bound to our obligations and because we all deserve to earn a living.
On the other hand, we get many creditors who do appreciate our work to the extent of paying us more than the 8% or, wishing to tip the Bailiffs for their successful efforts.

Illegal immirgrant clampdown

139 illegal immigrant suspects have been arrested in operations across London, Durham and Manchester in last week's operation.
Vans drove around several of the London boroughs displaying the message: ‘In the UK illegally? Go home or face arrest. Text HOME to 78070 for free advice, and help with travel documents.’
We say, this really does seem to be a very unprofessional operation more in line with a ice cream van's jingle.
Our advice to the Government is, watch border force Australia and learn from the experts, subject to brussels approval of course.

Vehicle ownership

This is question we get asked on a very regular basis.
Is the registered keeper of the vehicle the owner of the vehicle.
The registered keeper is the name on the V5 (log book),
this is not proof of ownership of the vehicle.
Proof of ownership is only proven by a bill of sale or purchase receipt.
This is why it is very important when buying a secondhand vehicle to ensure that, a signed receipt of ownership and the money paid for the vehicle is clearly stated, dated and signed by both parties.

Royal Courts of Justice

As a very regular visitor to the Royal Courts of Justice submitting applications and sworn affidavits, something different in this amazing building always catches my eye. There is a kind of aura within the place that makes waiting times less frustrating. The staff do appear to deal with matters with a much calmer attitude than other HMCTS departments, I do enjoy my visits to the RCJ and waiting is never a problem.
Thank you.

The Heygate Estate

Southwark Council has been ordered to release financial information about its controversial regeneration of the Elephant and Castle's Heygate estate.
We say, Southwark has one of the most difficult boroughs within London to manage, seems a harsh term to be "ordered" in any form.
Southwark council has been criticised because only 25 per cent of the 2,469 homes in the scheme being developed with Lend Lease are affordable. Campaigners are pushing for the level to be increased to 35 per cent in line with Southwark council's standard policies.
We say, let Southwark deal with it, campaigners only push to cause trouble and more expense.
The council has refused to disclose a financial viability assessment on which this decision was based following a freedom of information request last year. The authority cited commercial confidentiality and that the decision was necessary to protect its economic interests.
We say, protecting economic interests does seem in the best interest of all.
The Information Commissioner on 16 July upheld a complaint about the council’s refusal to release the information. Stating that ‘The public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in maintaining the exception.’
The decision means Southwark Council must supply the information within 35 days of the decision.
We say, why not keep your noses out of it, far too much interference already.
A leaseholder on the Heygate estate, said: ‘The viability assessment contains, Lend Lease’s valuation of the existing residential properties on the estate. We will be very interested to see how this compares with Southwark’s valuation of our homes.’
We say, in an over populated area already do we need more housing, the Heygate is a sad sight and it must come down but, another five thousand plus residents? not so sure the borough needs that.

Debt recovery collections London

The City of London Bailiffs debt recovery service currently charges no fee nor commission on all debts paid directly to the creditor within the first ten days. This situation now accounts for over 36% of all debts activated by our company.
As from 1st day of August 2013, all debts paid directly to our client within the first ten days default date will be subject to a 2.5%  pass through commission, payable to The City of London Bailiffs in the event of all debtor to creditor direct transactions being made as a direct result of our first letter posted to the debtor.
This decision has been made in order to maintain the 8% Bailiff commission fee, 8% representing the best cost effective debt recovery cost within London.

Hot weather debtors blues.

Come the sun, come the flusters!
There is sure as eels are eels a sun stroked mindless mentality when it comes to debtors with some sun on their backs, Ray Band shades and Flip Flops.
Rational responsibility denial heated by the ultra violet rays, eclipsing any light on the matter to face as a civilised citizen.
We are talking debts here and the inability to address such responsibilties in the light of day due to the more important issue of bronzed body matters. Hot weather equals hot tempers within the debtor sector, any little spark will ignite the fire of anger.
Hot weather cannot be used as an excuse for someone's anger, maybe the definition of cool guys in shades should be rephrased.
Anger debtor in the great British sunshine flustered by the responsibility of his debt and the Bailiff in his face.

Payday loan companies, Millwall and us.

With regard to the recent decision by Millwall to reject a lucrative sponsorship deal from Quick Quid payday money lenders, we at The City of London Bailiffs have taken a similar stance by rebuffing requests from payday lenders to collect debts on their behalf.

Enforcement officers in London

Enforcement officers! is it an American term for Bailiffs?
The actual term enforcement officers is not a term we tend to use, we are Bailiffs who do Bailiff duties within the laws of England and Wales.
Maybe the term Enforcement officers is better suited to the High Court Sheriffs. Sheriffs and the USA does kind of have a familiar ring to it.
Conclusion being you can call us anything you like, as long as it is not, late for our dinner.

County Court Possessions London

The City of London Bailiffs provide an attendance on County Court possessions acting as agent for the Landlord. Where in the case of the Landlord not wishing to face the tenants on eviction day, our Bailiffs will assist the HMCTS Bailiff with their duties, sign the warrant of possession on the landlords behalf, arrange our contracted locksmith to attend and change all locks, ensure that the property is secure and return the new keys to the Landlord. If a re-entry is permitted for the tenants to collect their belongings, a City of London Bailiff will attend and conduct the procedure, again ensuring that the property is left secure and return the keys to the Landlord.

Possession under forfeiture of commercial lease

The City of London Bailiffs under instructions from the Landlord will take possession of commercial premises within 24 hours. In accordance of the terms of lease it is still advised that the Landlord instructs the City of London Bailiffs via a Solicitor.
Once the property has been possessed and made secure, notices are then displayed in the windows and on the doors, a keyholder's contact number is on the forfeiture of lease notice's. It is then the Landlords decision on whether to allow the tenant re-entry again.
The Landlord may well of had enough of the tenant and not allow re-entry or, the Landlord may well allow the tenant re-entry after all arrears have been settled. The City of London Bailiffs will act as the Landlords agent in all after possession matters, as keyholder, security on re-entry and handling of any money transfers.
In the event of the tenant not contacting the keyholder, Bailiffs or Landlord in the following seven days after possession. The tenant's left belongings will be sold at auction or any goods of no value will be tipped.

Bromley County Court Process Serving

Bromley County Court documents for personal service.
Change of arrangements: Bromley County Court have been referring claimants who require personal document service to The City of London Bailiffs process servers.
We have so far asked the claimants to wait at the court or leave the documents for our collection at the court counter. Due to the court counter closing at 1400 hrs, this has delayed some service.
The City of London Bailiffs process servers will now collect the documents from the claimants given address, home or workplace within 2 hours. This will prevent any service delays and waiting times for our clients.
Once the court clerk has given our details to you, please simply text your name, address and "process serving" to
07508 707 016.
A City of London Bailiff will collect the documents and attempt service on the Respondent straight away.
This new amendent to service is included in the London Fixed Rate of £58.90 + Vat.
