Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
It was 12th June this year
Yes, we have been writing to Westminster City Council who wrote to us today to tell us that they had acted in accordance with the law and that, as far as they were concerned, the matter is now closed.
Thank you very much for this which is most helpful.
I have just two comments:
Surely it was the appropriate response for us to contact the council after the bailiff's visit which we did at once? They are responsible for any delay by taking a long time to reply to our letters.
Secondly, the bailiff came without any warning. I understood that bailiffs were legally obliged to leave notice seven days before coming to distrain. They gave us no notice whatsoever.
Actually we have written four times to Westminster City Council and only received a final reply today.
Thank you very much for your advice which was very helpful. I will, of course, give you an 'excellent' rating.
However, please note that I really do object to receiving SEVENTEEN reminders within less than 24 hours.
