Dear Flintshire County Council,

can you please answer under public interest using yes or no answers...

they will be contained within your code of ethics and your contracts or
simply in any code of conduct.this is not a complaint against your council
but research into how bailiffs can be a law unto themselves if not watched

1. Does your enforcement agent contract allow your enforcement agents to
issue an indemnity against prosecution for themselves without the
agreement of the council in cases where they have wrongfully seized when
the customer is identifiably vulnerable?

2. Have you ever allowed bailiffs to make their own settlement agreements
where goods have to be returned after 3 months?

3. Would you allow enforcement agents to breach the equalities act by
achieving a gain whilst someone is under mental health treatment if it
meant your business rates were collected,even if they didnt inform you?

4. How would you react if they did this without you knowing?

5. Would you class a secret indemnity kept from the council which achieves
a gain at the cost to the vulnerable victim a material breach of contract
.?

6. Must enforcement agents always report failed levies and a full report
when dealing with vulnerable customers 7.would you employ enforcement
agents that have fraudulently concealed information that could cause
litigation to the council or serious damage to a protected party in the
past ?

thank you for your public concern in answering these questions asap.

8.who are your current agents

Yours faithfully,

steve perkins

Dear Steve,

Thank you for your email below. Could you provide more information on which part of the Council's response you are dissatisfied with? For your convenience I copy below the Council's original response. Once I receive your clarification I will look into the matter.

Kind regards
Alun

1. Does your enforcement agent contract allow your enforcement agents to issue an indemnity against prosecution for themselves without the agreement of the council in cases where they have wrongfully seized when the customer is identifiably vulnerable?

The Council operates an in-house debt enforcement service and we do not rely on contracted external EA’s.

2. Have you ever allowed bailiffs to make their own settlement agreements where goods have to be returned after 3 months?

The Council has never permitted the EA’s to enter into their own settlement agreements where goods have to be returned after 3 months

3. Would you allow enforcement agents to breach the equalities act by achieving a gain whilst someone is under mental health treatment if it meant your business rates were collected,even if they didnt inform you?

Information not held

4. How would you react if they did this without you knowing?

Information not held

5. Would you class a secret indemnity kept from the council which achieves a gain at the cost to the vulnerable victim a material breach of contract .?

Information not held

6. Must enforcement agents always report failed levies and a full report when dealing with vulnerable customers

Yes

7.would you employ enforcement agents that have fraudulently concealed information that could cause litigation to the council or serious damage to a protected party in the past ?
