Dear Coventry City 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 Place Business Support,

for clarification .using your code of ethics and contract in the public interest

if a bailiff asked a vulnerable person in care to sign a indemnity to say the vulnerable person wouldnt sue if his goods were returned but the bailiff never informed the council of this secret indemnity.
would this breach your contract and would it be a material breach given the fact it breaks equality law and your contract?

we realise these are hypotethical but bailiffs have been known to issue financial gains for themselves without notifying the council or their customer .

Yours sincerely,

steve perkins

Dear Information Governance,

thank you for your transparancy

in relation to request 3 and related items .can you be more clear given the public interest in this answer
the questions have been asked to over 100 councils and it is important to rec3eive the answer based on your ethical values and your contract.we realise it is hypothetical but whether you would allow such a indemnity is the question

if you would we would then ask why considering it breaks the equality act and probabley your ethical standards and contract

i believe you can answer with more clarity

i do however appreciate the responses to the other questions

Yours sincerely,

steve perkins

Good Afternoon.

 

In response to Question 3 and related items, whilst it remains the
Council’s view that this is a matter of opinion and not recorded
information, the Council expects its appointed enforcement agents to
comply with their legal obligations including those set out in equalities
legislation and the Council’s vulnerability policy.

 

Kind regards
