The distress was valid but my issue was with 1) The harassing nature of posting the warrant without an envelope in a public foyer for everyone to see - i.e. deliberately choosing to cause unnecessary embarrasment
and 2) Leaving the note on my windscreen after removing the clamp.. they half tore it off but it is still there and you can clearly see it's a bailiff's notice.. So anyone on the streets can see i have 'financial issues with bailiffs' - when this should have been removed with the clamp when i paid up 2 days ago.
Can I sue them for harassment for point 1) and causing unnecessarily prolonged embarrassment and distress for point 2) ?
Hi Alex... shall I wait for email reply.. not sure how this chat system works - you appear to keep dropping out....Maybe bad connection..
I didn't have a figure in mind - I just wanted to know initially if they are behaving legally and if I have a plausible case against them.
It is not about money but the principle ...and if I had to choose a figure, I would probably try an make a point by choosing exactly £512 (which was how much they collected) .
Still do need clarification on the legality or plausibility of grounds for claim for the two issues before going ahead.1) Posting something that should be confidential through a shared letterbox without an envelope... Does this constitute violating my right to confidentiality and privacy and therefore causing unnecessary embarrassment? I'm a very private, reserved person and I am very embarrassed that all my neighbors have seen a warrant of intent to enter the premises and seize my goods (no mention of the parking fine - so they could assume the worst like bad debts etc)2) Are they not required to completely remove all notices pasted on my car after payment? They haven't used easy to remove stickers which is why they haven't succeeded in removing it completely.. I don't want to damage my windscreen by attempting to scrape off their mess. In the meantime the sticker is there for ALL to see that I have bailiff issuesI need legal guidance on this rather than on how to proceed (helpful as it is). Sorry if I haven't been clear..
Great, thanks - it does help.
Point 2 is that my car is left 'defaced' - at least my windscreen and with embarrassing information that is no longer relevant as they have not removed it. Thanks
Happy to close..
