HI" no because the property was hers not mine and still is to this day
I have sent them letters in reply to there claims over this time and
they say i have no right of appeal. i have been through all lines of
enquiry open to me by the department for work and pensions
but this seems to have fallen on deaf hears..
the earliest letter i have in my file is 1998 stating that they had overpaid me,
yes by letter, then the benefits agency recovery group sent me letter 02-june-98, asking for payment due immediately.
hi alex" did you receive my answer to your last question
i did send in letter of appeal as i remember but they said there decition was final
i have the letter of appeal acknowledged by them dated 15-july-98. and states no further action against me until the result of appeal.....and i have letter dated june 2000. two years later" that my appeal has been dismissed
no i have no letter in my file notifying me of any date, as explained earlier i sent in my appeal by letter on or about june-july.1998..
no i did not hear anything more about appeal rights just demands for payment ,and now they have placed an attachment on my earnings approx £400.per month
I was not aware that was an option open to me because they just sent me demand letters for monies and also they said i had no right of appeal
no ,but i have a letter sent to me saying that they may take me to court to get the money back, this letter is dated 17th march 1998.
i have a letter sent from them to me dated 14th may 2014.that asks for payment to be made or they will contact my employer to deduct monies by direct earnings attachment which they have done since september 2014, at a rate of approx £420 per month , i have never been to court to put my case foreward. i feel if they were sure i owed this money then why did they wait 20years for this action. and now i am of pension age which they also say that they will deduct money from my state pension. i have no other means of income and my health is not too good but i am forced to work and try to save for my retirement which leaves me little. this i feel is totally unfair and i have explained this to them over the years but they do not want to know...
in 2006 i have aletter from d.w.p.stating that theire enforcement team are now instructed to recover the debt through the courts dated 5-5-06 .on the 13-6-2006 they sent letter stating that the case is being transfered to a private debt collecting company. then 24th 09-2012 another letter saying that another private debt collecting company for collection.
I have not received any paperwork from d.w.p.stating that a court order had been granted to deduct monies from wages......as i say i have a letter from debt collecting agency on behalf of d.w.p. which states that the d.w.p. are unable to take court action, for recovery of debt. which i find very odd, and only states that recovery of debt from benefit and retirement pension" no mention of deduction from wages.
do i get this information at local court ,or do i ask d,w,p. for copy of court order.
HI"" yes i shall do that, and wait for a reply and send you an update
within the next couple of days ...regards,terry...
