    Yea, I'm the bailify person lol well, I'm just a "Collections Agent".
    Bo$$, the best way out of it is to record the whole thing as you said, and to just lean out the window and tell them "I've paid my Council Tax but my Landlord hasn't". Then give them your landlord's name and address and any contact details you have for him. That will have covered your arse if you have any future problems with them. Trust me, if you give the bailif's that info, they're likely to just follow the cash and move on.

    If the Police get a warrant, just hope that it's in your landlord's name. A warrant is invalid if the wrong person/tenants name is on the paper. In fact, nearly all Police warrants are invalid if there's just a spelling mistake in the name/address. Also, a warrant has to be signed to be valid. If there isn't a hand-written signature on the warrant, it's invalid.

    Let us know how it goes man. And don't relax at 5 o'clock, bailifs will work evenings if they have to, as they're on commission.

    "LOOK MY LIEGE CAMELOT" *dun dun dun dun "We are knights of the round table we dance whenever we're able... we dine well here in Camelot we eat ham and jam and spam a lot!!! I HAVE TO PUSH THE PRAM A LOT..." "On second thoughts, let's not go there. Tis' a silly place."

    "The peoples front of Judea? FUCK OFF!"

    "I want you to chop down a tree with a HERRING"

    YES! Monty Python is the best idea so far, there arnt many epic American sitcoms or movies we could rip avatars from.

    This time we all have to stick to the same avatar theme for at least more time than we did with the star trek one.

    Check mine out.

    Their Note was too the landlord, I will definitely watch out for them. There is no way to enter other than the front, and i don't think the council even know we live here as all our post is redirected to another address...

    They are Chartered Bailifs if that actually means anything, there was no letter from the council or any sort of details left there, was a bit strange.... can they force entry if the one who owes money doesn't own anything in the premises?

    My mother got real worried and called the number left there and tried to explain to the fucker that the landlord doesn't live here, hopefully they caught the hint as she left his number with them....

    They can only force entry if they have a Police warrant AFAIK. Have a look at the link Tatty posted; there's some stuff there I didn't even know :eek:
    But what you're thinking is right - even if they do force entry/have a warrant, as long as you can prove the stuff there is yours and not your landlord's, then you should be ok. That's providing the landlord hasn't claimed that the debt is yours, and not his.
    If the bailifs' paperwork says that you owe the money, well, I'd start seeking legal advice.

    Well im 99% sure they cant enter the property without a warrant like Scam says and it has to be in your name. I am unsure if legally they can take your stuff since essentially its the landlords debt and technically they own the place.

    If anything happens like they try to force entry immediately phone the police.

    Some key caps on my new keyboard started to fade like the 'A' key since i use it a lot in gaming but i read up a top tip that using a cotton bud and some isopropyl can clean the cap. So i did that and everything is fine now. Apparently oils in fingers can dirty the characters. I haven't ate at the desk or had really greasy fingers while using the keyboard but apparently even relatively clean fingers can make key caps fade. Nice to know i can just use some isopropyl which i have a massive bottle of from cpu cleaning.

    I use the plastic cover that came with it to keep out dust! Handy!
