  1. Thanks for the info so far. I'll write back to them requesting they send the relevant letters through. I don't suppose they need to provide proof of posting do they?
  2. I received a breakdown of fees from equita regarding a parking fine they collected. I'd be grateful if anyone could let me know if their are any discrepencies in them Initial warrant amount £110.00 02/07/09 Bailiff letter sent to defendant requesting they contact us (£12.88) 03/07/09 The DVLA report the vehicle LD** *** is registered to Mr D**** ***** at (My old Address) 09/07/09 Bailiff called to levy, no contact made, left letter (fee £39.10) 16/07/09 Further bailiff visit made to contact debtor. 21/07/09 Case issued to bailiff; (bailiffs name) to visit 22/07/09 (bailiffs name) attended a mid terrace house in good condition with multi lock and wood glass front doot. Our Bailiff reports nobody was present in the property at time of call, left notice of attendence. UNable to confirm if defendant is still resident with neighbours (visit/attendence/removal fees: £223.10) 27/07/09 C/card payment of £385.08 recorded I had moved from the property but my car was still registered to the address. However my previous landlord only contacted me to notify me of the bailiffs visit on the 23/07/09. She claims that no previous letters were received. My questions are basically, 1) Do the charges seem fair 2) should equita have also sent me copies of the letter sent in the SAR (copy I sent below) 3) should they give me an individual breakdown of the visit/attendence/removal fees or is it ok for them to total it up together Thanks in advance Write pursuant to Section 7 of the Data Protection Act 1998 and enclose payment of £10 the maximum prescribed under the Act and request you send me the following. An itemised breakdown of all the fees charges orders costs and other monies that make up the total obtained by your bailiff. Name of the Bailiff Name and address of the court that certificated your bailiff. All letters documents emails comments faxes personal opinions memos and other related information which would qualify as information defined under the Act. All other information relevant and related to this request and occurrences therein. Whilst I appreciate the Act allows you 40 days from the date of this request to fulfil your obligation, I look forward to receiving the above at your earliest convenience. Yours Faithfully MR **** ********
  3. thanks for the quick reply - So just to clarify I have no need to contact equita again then. Is there a specific website that has a list of fees that should be applied for bailiff visits? Thanks
  4. On the 18th of August I sent a letter recorded delivery to equita bailiffs requesting a breakdown of fees charged for collection of an unpaid parking ticket. The £10.00 enclosed cheque was cashed around six weeks later but I have not yet received any information. As this is over the 40 days stipulated and no reply has been received can somebody please advise me of my next course of action. DO I go straight to the small claims court or write to them again? Thanks
  5. Hi, I recently send a subject access request to equita requesting a breakdown of the charges applied to a parking ticket. I have enclosed the £10.00 and sent it recorded delivery. The letter has been signed for and around 30 days have passed but the cheque is yet to be cashed. Can somebody please advise where I stand after the 40 days required under the Data protection act and what my next step should be Thanks in Advance
  6. Excellent, I look forward to seeing some updates in the future keep up the good work
  7. Thanks for the information. May I ask why you gave up on this one? Is it a dead end or worth me following it up with my local force?
  8. Hi, Can anyone tell me when the practice of police assisting bailiffs on roadside checks actually stopped Thanks
  9. That's all well and good but when they are threatening to turn up at your house and take your car then we would sooner settle the debt and reclaim it at a later date. Again I'm just after advice on how to pay and whether the equita can refuse to accept payment.
  10. I think it was around £60.00 so obviously it's a substantial increase Thank you for the link but the parking fine isn't really the issue as we admit liability in that respect. I was after advice on how to deal with the bailiff who failed to respond to our calls etc
  11. Hello, My partner recently received notification from her previous landlord that a bailiff from equita had visited her previous property in regards to an outstanding parking fine. We're not disputing the fine went unpaid and we obviously didn't receive any correspondence from them as she failed to change the address via the DVLA After she called him the bailiff refused to accept either full payment of £382.00 this coming Thursday (payday) or ANY offer of installments. He then stated that she had 24 hours to pay or they would seize her car. She managed to borrow the money and notified the bailiff who said he would call back the following morning (after her father had placed it into her account) to take payment. The bailiff failed to call so my girlfriend called and left two messages. asking her to call so she could make a payment. He failed to call back so she called the equita office stating that she would like to make a payment. They then refused and stated that the payment must go via the bailiff who is still uncontactable. I'm basically looking for advice on what to do next as the cynic in me suggests the bailiff is trying to justify his fees and will be in touch soon with a revised and higher fee for phantom letters and visits. Do we contact the council and make payment to them or do we insist that equita office accept the payment (if so how) Finally, £382.00 seems excessive for a letter and a visit are the fees fixed and is their anywhere I can view them? Any help would be gratefully appreciated
  12. Hiya, I'm in the same situation - the bays seem to be incorrectly marked after looking at the various diagrams on the web but are there any images of these "grandfarthered" bays? Thanks
  13. Hello All, New to the forum so a big hello to everyone. I recently received a pcn for overstaying my ticket. The bay is marked correctly but the only signs that were visable were ones that stated "pay at meter" or words to that effect. am I correct in thinking the parking times etc need to be displayed on a sign or are they ok just on the actual meter? Thanks Dave
