Statement by HMCTS

The Ministry of Justice has re-considered its intention to outsource the collection of court fines to a single supplier. 

In a written statement by Shailesh Vara the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Justice, Minister for the Courts and Legal Aid, said: "In the last financial year HM Courts & Tribunals Service (HMCTS) collected over £550m of fines, other financial impositions, fixed penalties and orders, and that money has helped to fund vital services for taxpayers.  

"Following re-consideration of the department’s requirements, we have decided that outsourcing these services to a single supplier is not the best option for HM Courts and Tribunals Service. This decision is based on the need to ensure that any contract we let completely meets our requirements, provides best value for the taxpayer and complies with procurement law. 

"Ministers have set out the importance of reforming HMCTS to provide a modern and efficient service for society. Improving compliance and enforcement services will continue to form a key part of that work. We believe that in house modernization is the best option for HMCTS."

We say: Well it's taken HMCTS far too long to re-consider it's very poor collection rate of under 7% as, an efficient service. Under staffed and poorly trained personnel along with the lack of investment is the main issue to overcome.

Central London congestion charge area fixed rate at £58.90, other London postcodes £63.90 and Greater London postcodes at £68.90 all being subject to Vat.

Judge Wilkinson R.I.P
We are all very sadden by the sudden passing of a true gentleman and the fairest Judge in the land.
Judge Wilkinson was a good friend of the City of London Bailiffs and our staff, especially our account manager Christine who had previously work with the Judge for over 20 years at Bromley County Court.
Our thoughts go out to John Wilkinson's family.

London Based Companies

When taking actions against a London based company or company director, it is strongly recommended that you check that the registered address is actually a trading address. Over recent years many companies have listed a registered address that is merely a registered office at their Accountants, a mailing office, a virtual office, a formation company or a management/secretarial service. In these cases the Creditor, Claimant, Applicant or Petitioner is simply wasting their money in taking any actions against them as the matter will be returned as non-enforceable or unable to meet.
The City of London Bailiffs have been very busy providing worldwide companies with an address checking service, where a visit at the given address is undertaken and a witness statement supporting our findings is supplied. This procedure can then ensures our client that any intended actions can be confidently applied. In the many cases where the company's address is not a trading address or manned office, the City of London Bailiffs can investigate for an alternative address or trace the residential addresses of the company Directors. These checks are vital when proceeding with Statutory Demands, Judgment Orders or any other matters against a company or it's Directors.

County Court Eviction delays

The current delays in County Court possessions within the London courts is at an all time high with most Courts currently operating with 2-4 Bailiffs short. A former HMCTS Bailiff and I, have offered our services for two days a week to help with the current backlog. HMCTS have directly declined our offer stating that, if we wish to work for HMCTS again, then we must enrol with Brook Street Employment Agencies and wait for an available position to arise. 

Unlawful eviction

At a hearing on 9/11/2012 at Willesden County Court, a landlord was ordered to pay a total of £20,000.00 in compensation (plus costs) for illegally evicting his tenant.
The tenant, was evicted from his Kilburn home in September 2011. He
came home to find that the locks on the front door of his home had been changed and his belongings left in plastic bags outside the front door.

A friendly reminder to all residential Landlords: 
This case was back in 2012, the penalty today for an illegal eviction can be even greater. Our advice is clear! Always use the County Court possession procedures.
