For JOMO1972 I am a nurse . I am able to pay 250 pounds which I offered to the bailiff. My problem is that I feel the charges are extortionate. I was never made aware of what the outstanding sum was till I contacted council. Advice from the CAB says they have to send me a breakdown of the charges and that they can not be greater than the debt which is 192 pounds. Right now I am sitting here waiting for him to turn up.

Ok. Thanks. Did they attend on any occasion?

Do you know what work was done by the bailiffs?
