Probably very little I can do here but I paid a clamping firm

This answer was rated:

Probably very little I can do here but I paid a clamping firm a while back on my credit card. I appealed and won the case and issued a warrasnt of execution. Unfortunately, the clamping company has now gone bankrupt. Given that the credit card companies are jointly liable, is there any way I can get them to cover the cost?

I don't think this quite falls under the Customer consumer act.


Thank you for your question and welcome to just answer.

Is the company in liquidation? Have you asked your credit card company to reimburse you?

Kind regards

Yes the clamping firm has gone into liquidation as confirmed on companies house. I have spoken and written to the credit card company with little success.

Thanks for your question. Please remember to rate my answer SMILEY FACE OR ABOVE so that I am credited for my time.

Yes the card company is joint and severally liable under the consumer credit act.

If they refuse to remove the charge then you should issue proceedings.

You can do this online at www, - you will have to pay a fee but this will be added to the claim.

If the claim is below £5000 it will be a small claim and you won't need a solicitor.

You will be surprised how quick matters are resolved once proceedings are issued.

I hope this helps.
