What has happened is that the legal aid people have taken me to county court and have been sending letters to my old address from deby collectors. My old lanlord gave me a county letter and it is an enforcement notice with added costs for 3500. However this amount is incorrect as I have a letter from bedlington magistrates that states it should be £1658. I have been trying to pay this with my solicitors help but when I went into his office he told me I would need to pay for an application and go to county court. He has wrote on the enforcement order that I needed to ring county court and ask for an application 'to set aside the amount of £3500 because the figure is incorrect.' However the ladies at county court are less helpful and say 'well what application do you need, we cant help or advise. So is there a type of application I need to ask for that can sort this mess out?
Yes this is true it was for a court case last year. I have been trying to pay the correct amount with debt collectors rossendales. But they said they could not alter the amount so I got my solicitor involved and he verified the sum was incorrect that they were charging. This has since been passed to county court with letters being sent to my old address. So what application do I need to ask for at county court to sort this disputed sum out becuase I need to get this sorted as the decision was passed in May and I didnt find out till two weeks ago
The debt collectors when I have rang them now have no details of me on their system. I have given them the reference number and they say it has nothing to do with them it must of been passed on. I am just wanting to pay the full amount that is owed truely. Do you know how much this N244 form(application) will cost to submit to county court? I still have the evidence from bedlington mags where the legal aid application was first submitted that states the true value is £1658. Would you advise me to ring county court tomorrow and ask for this N244 form and send it back filled in or just write to the court explaining this and show a copy of the evidence?
The value they first wanted was £3372 and now they have taken me to court the amount is another £150 extra. So its not the added costs have nearly doubled the amount, as my solicitor who dealt with the original case said they have it wrong but the county court is not very helpful hence why I am asking you.
So would your advice be to write to county court or ring them for the N244 form?
