  1. I'm exactly in the same situation as I posted on the 15th of May. My OOT was rejected by TEC regarding my London Parking ticket. They told me I have to fill in the N244 and pay the 100£ if I would like to appeal again. Someone told me that I should attempt to get Consent from Lambeth to set-aside the Judgement and that in this case, the Court Fee is £100 and there is No Court Hearing? Thanks for your help..
  2. Ok. I will have to fill in the papers by myself (N224).. Any advice on how should I proceed? I read that I should call Lambeth and "attempt to get Consent to set-aside the Judgement"? Thank for your help...
  3. Apologies for that. I got help me to fill in all 3 OOT's, so I'm waiting for that answer from the Court. However, I can't contact BA at the moment, perhaps BA is away... I have 14 days to fill in my documents and 5 days have passed since they sent me the letter. So I'm starting to worry about it...
  4. Hi, I filled in an OOT declaration regarding a parking ticket, last month. However, the information I put on this form was wrong (because I've mistaken the case with another PCN I had, which I also didn't know about (never received any letters from the Council at all, due to V5C address not updated)). For this reason, TEC has refused my application. In the letter TEC sent me, they say that I should look for legal advice before contacting them and that I should fill in an N244 form. Can you please recommend me someone that I can contact to help me to fill in the forms that I need? Many thanks for your help.
  5. I'm sorry for taking so long, but at work I cannot get on the phone They told me: times are for each of the 3 of them: 11:53min; 11:12min; 11:53min. How can they charge me twice for the same time? They told me to call TEC and explain them what's happening to get the correct forms first? Do you think I should ask help of a solicitor for all this?? I have the proof that when I called the DVLA back in 2015, they updated their records online for payments etc but they never told me to send the V5C. So I didn't know that it haven't been changed... all went wrong from here. Can we just pop in to a county court or does it has to be booked with them in advance?
  6. YEs, it is the same offence. The Bailiff yesterday told me that it was related to the Pulteney Bridge in Bath. All I can think is that I pass there 3 times (I was looking for parking and I clearly didn't see the signs). The PCN for London I have the number as it was related when I parked in London (they left the parking ticket on my window screen) when I made the mistake with the plate number. All the info I submitted for the TE9 and TE7, I applied to the London PCN basing all the info I wrote there on the enforcement letter I got from Bath (It never occurred to me I have committed a mistake in Bath, so I always thought this is all about London.. all this time..) TEC haven't processed any of my TE7 and TE9, and I'm thinking because it doesnt make sense the info I provided? I have the letters with me. They don't say what the contravention is about. (I guess it should be CCTV?) but they do provide the numbers that you say. There's 3 different numbers. Starting with 2 letters and then 8 numbers... The warrant were issued in Jan 22, 2018. All of them. The Bailiff yesterday understood that I knew nothing about this and she gave me a week to sort this! My car is 9 years old and is not on finance.
  7. Hello everyone... I have news. This situation is MUCH WORSE than what I was expecting. I've been crying my eyes out since I called the Bailiffs... This is the situation: I phoned the Bailiffs and explained them that I couldn't understand why I had 3 letters if it was only one penalty charge from London. (other times I called them, they never denied that it was from somewhere different than London). The notice of Enforcement that I received with 3 letters inside it's not from London... It is from Bath!! I went in October, Sunday to visit Bath for the first time and parked my car on Grand Parade. As it was Sunday (10.09.2017), I checked the parking signs and I didn't have to pay for parking. The Bailiff told me that the fine is related to "Pulpeney Bridge, Bath". It couldn't be parking, because I didn't have a parking ticket in my car when I arrived. I went and googled "restrictions driving on pulpeney bridge bath" and clicked on the first link, BBC Bristol news (I am not allowed to publish links, sorry). I cannot believe that this is about driving on this bridge I didn't see any signs at all and I was driving around looking for parking, probably passed there 3 times, therefor, 3 penalties! I'm so so lost... I don't even know where to go form here... When I received the Enforcement letters I called TEC (thinking they were about the London penalty), they told me to fill in a TE7 and TE9, relating to the Lambeth. All the info I put there is wrong! Then Lambeth objected and so I'm waiting for TEC's decision. So, what am I supposed to do now??? I'm desperate! I The Bailiffs were very comprehensive, they realised I was caught by surprise and gave me one more week to deal with this... Problem is, I'm away Friday (04.05.18) and then I come back to be in the UK on the 08.05.2018 (Tuesday) and then I'm away the rest of the week! How do I go about sorting this Bath problem now? The TE7 and the TE9 I sent to TEC is all wrong! Where is the warrant issued by Lambeth? I never received it.. . Does this means I have 2 notices of Enforcement now? Please... Help! P.S.: Thanks Andy for that information
  8. That's a good tip too! I checked the plate number and it is a Bus that has that plate.. I didn't know about that "fat finger syndrome", thank you. I've been in the UK for 5 years now. When I came, I was told that I could keep my driving license that was no problem as it was the European one. When I called the DVLA about the V5C they always ask about my driving license and it was never a problem...
  9. Hi, Please feel free to be critical. Thanks to you I now start to make sense of everything that has happened... Unfortunately, because time was against me and TEC asked me to fill in the papers ASAP, I couldn't search for advice before. When you say that I can have the application reviewed after rejected, is it referring to Lambeth Council or about TEC's decision? I didn't know I had to put everything exactly like you're telling me unfortunately, because then, I could have added much more details. I phoned the DVLA this morning and I had my address for the direct debit correct. Which means back in 2015 when I moved, I called them. However, when I called them, I wasn't told that I had to post the V5C to be changed so I never did. I ddin't know... I had send it today. Unfortunately, back in 2015 I didn't know I could make arrangements with the Royal Mail to get my mail re-directed. I have always updated my address with HMRC, utilities and services, etc, unfortunately, I did not know that I had to change the DVLA (I thought that HMRC and DVLA would share data...) and when I phoned DVLA, again, they didn't tell me about the V5C. I have an European Driving license so I do not need to change the address, that's what the DVLA also told me this morning.. I swear to you, that's what Bristow and Suttor said. I have 3 papers from them and I have to pay the total of all of them. The papers say: "Notice of enforcement". Two of these letters have a total of 173£ and one of them have 408£ (for some reason?? it has the exact same numbers as all the others, Debt: 98£, Compliance Stage Fee: 75£ and a total of 408£? on the others with the same Debt and same Compliance Stage Fee the total is 173£).... I spoke to TEC this morning and the lady that picked up said that they haven't heard from Lambeth yet! I said that they sent the letter Objecting to my request on the 16th of April and I received it at home on the 20th of April (2 weeks ago). The lady said to not worry about that because maybe TEC haven't processed it yet. She said that I have to call Lambeth because they should have put the Bailiffs on hold. She said they cannot just answer to you and put the Bailiffs on action again. Something is not right...
  10. Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, the Bailiffs are not on hold. They called me Saturday (28.04.2018) and said that they haven't been notified of anything. They wanted to arrange a payment and that I have until Wednesday (02.04.2018) to pay.. Should I call TEC and ask about this? I don't really know where can I ask for help... - I filled in both TE7 and TE9. I put on the TE7: "Following my informal appeal, I never received the Notice to the Owner to be able to make a formal appeal. I only received on thursday, 05 of April 2018 a letter of "Enforcement Process Commenced" from Bristow and Suttor requiring a payment of 754£ by Wednesday, 11th of April 2018. I am asking for this Enforcement Process to be put on hold and time to receive the Notice to the Owner and make a formal appeal please. FYI, I moved to X on the 14.08.2017 (Proof attached). - Date of Lambeth's rejection letter: Monday, April 16, 2018. - My car is from 2009 and is not on finance. No, I only have one penalty charge.
  11. Hi, my name is Vanessa. Can please anyone give me some guidance regarding this problem that I'm going through? Please see the full story below: Last year I went to London and parked my car. I didn't have any change with me, so used the application "Pay by Phone" to pay for the whole morning car park. 12£. When I got back to the car, I had a penalty notice on the windscreen. I came home and I was sure that I had paid for it, so I appealed for it online. I thought this "paybyphone" app was something new and that the officer maybe didn't check my car plate online. I asked if you could please check their online records because I did pay for it. I'd a reply from Lambeth council saying that there was nothing on their online records and so they were rejecting my appeal. I should then wait for a formal appeal, the Notice to Owner. I checked my online records and realised that unfortunately I made a mistake on one letter of my plate, that's why they couldn't find it online. Instead of an "A", I put an "S" which is exactly the letter next to the A. My screen is broken and with the light from the sun, I didn't realise my mistake until I saw the receipt. I was waiting the notice to the owner, but I never got it. Instead, I received a letter from the Bailiffs saying that I owe them nearly 800£. I couldn't believe...I read a lot online and phoned the Traffic Enforcement Court and was advised to fill in TE7 and TE9. First thing they asked me was my address and I realised that they had my old address in their records. I filled in the TE7 and TE9, send it to the TEC and they send that to Lambeth Council. The court told me that the Bailiffs would be put on hold while the process was being investigated. I received a letter from Lambeth Council rejecting my TE7 and TE9. They said that I reply to them the first time, by writting, when I was appealing informally. After that, my address was requested to the DVLA and several notices were sent to my address and I never replied to any... Unfortunately when I moved I forgot to change my address, so obviously all the letters went to the wrong address. I phoned Lambeth Council and asked if they keep a record of the letters that were sent to me. The confirmed it. I asked to see a copy of the Notice to the Owner that was sent but the Council said "you have no right to see the letters, we send them to you once and that's it. You appealed to the Court, we as a Council also have the right to appeal against it. We have to wait for the judge to decide"... This weekend I've got a call from the Bailiffs asking me why I haven't paid yet. I told them that I filled in all the forms to the court and that I was told that the Bailiffs would be on hold. The Bailiff told me that they had no notification and that I have until Wednesday to pay everything... She also said that not changing my address with the DVLA was an offence and so I had to pay for the full bill. This started with a simple mistake made in one letter of the car plate when paying the car parking and it got so wrong and completely out of control with Bailiffs requesting me nearly 800£ to pay within days. I'm sorry is such a long text. I am so lost and stressed and I don't know where to go from here... Any suggestions or anyone that has been through the same situation please? Many thanks, Vanessa
