About Me


  1. Hi all I have received a letter from this company stating that I did not display a valid permit in a college car park whilst attending an event. I did have a parking ticket from the machine which was clearly displayed on my dashboard. The letter includes a photograph of my car but from a distance and simply showing that my car was parked in the car park. I have written the following. Before I send it, is this OK? ******* I write to appeal against the parking charge notice as detailed above. I attach a copy of the parking ticket I purchased and clearly dis
  2. Friend built up congestion charge debt as (stupidly) he didn't change the address for his van when he split from his wife - she just threw any correspondence for him in the bin. Bailiffs called to enforce debt. Only real asset was work van that had finance outstanding. Bailiffs said that they were taking control of van, finance company were called and said they could not. He kept the van. Problem is the van will be paid off in a couple of months and he is worried that the Bailiffs will then return to take control. What is the situation around this. Don't have any paperwork to hand as

  4. Car has been playing up at junctions usually slowing down and touching the clutch causing it to stall a couple of times then it purrs like a kitten. Has been doing this on and off for a while. Wife is a member of the xsara picasso club and they have suggested Idle control valve which even google suggests its that based off others with similar problems. We went to a couple of garages who have given prices ranging from £140 - £240 the most expensive being the main dealer but they wanted to do a diagnostic on the car because they didn't want to do the work just because we said what the
  5. Hello, So long story short earlier this year I found myself unemployed and survived off credit. I owe £26k to various companies. I was advised a few months ago to declare bankrupt and am in the process of raising the funds (should have all paid by 13th Jan). I had a CCJ awarded against me for ~6000 by a credit union. This was a loan. Monday I received a Notice of Enforcement from Harrison (Marston) stating that a High Court Writ of Control had been gained and I needed to pay by 23rd Dec. I have been reading and would appreciate some advice. I own nothing

I admit I have left this spiral out of control , but need advise please .

  7. I would be grateful for some advice. I occasionally get some eatables and pickles from India using Fedex courier services. My father paid the charges for the courier services in India and declared the item value which was 15£. I have received the parcel without any issues. After 3 weeks time i got an Invoice letter from Fedex for the payment of 30£ for Duty and Tax. In the Invoice its clearly mentioned that the total value of the goods was 19£ and Fedex was asking me to pay the Duty and Tax of 30£. I have attached the Invoice. I have call
  8. Hi everyone. Earlier today I received a Notice of Issue of Warrant of Control from the County Court Business Centre, it reads; Urgent To the Debtor You have not made payment under the judgement as you were ordered. The creditor has therefore asked for a warrant to be issued to the bailiff to seize and sell your goods. Unless you pay the amount due to the court before 02 December 2016 the bailiff will call and may remove your goods for sale at public auction. This may mean that you will have to pay further costs. Total to Pay £179.25 Balance Outstanding £1,392.38
  9. I'm assuming there is a precedent to this. I have a debt to the Council for back Council Tax which I have been paying back as and when I can afford it. Today Bristow and Sutor sent an enforcement agent (who told them he was a bailiff) while I was out and luckily they did not let him in. Nothing, apart from a few items such as my bed and an old stereo which is worth pretty much nothing, on these premises belongs to me as I am just a lodger here and the room is furnished by the landlords. I have never denied that I owe something but the amount is in dispute I have told
  10. Hi, yesterday I was issued with a PCN for parking in a disabled space without clearly displaying a disabled badge. I have a disabled badge but it had slid from the dashboard to down the side of the dashboard. I was distracted when parking and had realised it had slid down the side. I have read lots of threads on here and am totally confused. Should I hold my hands up and admit it wsnt displayed clearly or defend the claim. My nissan note has a small side window that would have shown the badge had slipped down the side but I doubt this is clearly displayed. The disabled bat was clearl
  11. Hi, I've had a read through previous posts and was hoping for some advice on our current situation. We entered debt management plan in Jan 2013 (70k credit cards & bank loans). Never missed on mortgage payments (1 residential & 2 buy to let) and these are currently up to date. We have a couple of properties which have finally increased in value and are hoping to sell this summer and get back on track. Our DMP has always been up to date. We were wondering what our chances were of obtaining a mortgage in future once we come out of the plan. Both of us
  12. Hi, Over the last few months I have received a CCJ, then a notice of enforcement now an e mail threatening that a HCE are going to enforce a Writ of Control. I do not have a car or any belongings that are valuable. I know not to allow entry to bailiffs. I am just wondering how long the HCEs will keep trying to obtain the money which I just do not have??? Also, might they try to escalate the matter to making me bankrupt? If so, do they have to serve a writ by hand? I will be moving soon so this may alleviate some of the pressure! Lots of questions I kno
  13. CAG... I write this with good intentions but its becoming more and more apparent that ignoring DCAs is becoming a bad idea. Just like the case of Harlands / Zinc and Court, It appears Control Account are issuing claims. I attach the following example... The debtor of another site, which i will not mention was told to ignore Control Account PLC and is now being advised to try and get unequivocal proof of who the legal manager is, statements etc... Its becoming apparent that DCAs that are normally dont even consider legal action are now attempting it. There is a way to deal
  14. This happened at the back of the Exeter Arms in Derby, 2015. I went round the back of this pub to park and unload my equipment in to the pub but all the parking bays owned by the pub were taken, s I did pull up near the rear entrance to the pub unload my equipment and then take my car round the front to park on the street which by that time was free parking. Some weeks later I received a letter from VCS with a fine for parking there. I was going to ignore it but my wife talked me into sending an appeal letter, which of course was rejected. Now I'm receiv
  15. Back in September, I parked in a private car park, and paid for four hours parking, between 11:30 and 15:30. Following the instructions on the ticket, I firmly attached the ticket to the windscreen. When I returned to the car at about 14:30 (early as I was not feeling well), the ticket has peeled off the windscreen, and there was a PCN attached to the passenger window. I appealed the PCN on the grounds that I had actually paid, so there had been no loss of income, in a half empty car park. It was an extremely hot day, and the ticket had obviously remained in place for
  16. Hello, I am writing on behalf of my granddaughter who received a PCN from a management company as above subject (PCM) for not displaying her permit. Her car had been in for repairs and the permit on the floor of the car. She wrote to the company and explained; but she received a refusal back. They do not dispute she holds a valid permit but the "operative was unable to determine whether the car was allowed to park there" . They say in the letter she has a number of options:- Pay the £60 charge within 14 days, if not it increases to £100. If she believes the de
  17. Hello. Earlier this week I went to Iceland (Sheffield) to do an emergency last minute Christmas shop. I parked in a sensible position (in line with other vehicles, not causing an obstruction). To be fair, there were no marked parking spaces, but I (foolishly) assumed that it was simply because the area had been re-surfaced. 30 mins later I emerged to find that myself (and everyone else parked equally sensibly in the same area) had received a ticket from Vehicle Control Services, Sheffield. The fine is for £60 if paid within 14 days, or £100 or court action thereafter.
  18. A thread to explore what is and isn't working, and highlight issues where the old problems are rearing their head again, like charging multiple fees, refusal of all offers until visit and £235 garnered, application of Sales Fee before even a controlled Goods Order is in place etc.
  19. Hi all, Just a little advice needed please. I received a Private Parking Invoice on July 22 in Manchester from Vehicle Control Solutions. I looked on a couple of forums and the advice seemed to be to ignore it and don't make contact until the 'Notice to Registered Keeper' arrives. BTW, the parking ticket states that 'The driver is liable for this PCN'. This morning, I received a letter from Rossendale Collects, dated October 10, giving me 7 days to pay a balance (no mention of fine or invoice) of £130.00. This is the original invoice of £100.00 plus an administration f
  20. Hi, It's been a long time since I needed to come onto this site but it looks like I'm back again. I need help but really don't know if helps going to be possible now. Ok here is what's going on so far. background info For the last five weeks I have been at my mums house, I'm diagnosed with bipolar and things have been pretty bad. I've been back and forwards to the doctor to get help, their mental health clinic and 9 days ago things hit critical mass and the doctor called in the mental health crisis team who have been visiting me daily and will be fo
  21. Hi all, Wondered if you could give me some advice. I was in Grahame Park in Hendon today and needed to pop to the Sainsbury's local store. There was a lay by to the side of the store which had cars parked in it already and I pulled in, was just about to get out of the car and a bloke walking past said "Don't park here mate, its a loading bay and they are taking pictures of the cars". I thanked him and got back in the car but as I was pulling out into the traffic, a woman appeared and took a picture of my car and the registration plate. I went back there later
  22. Hello all I went on holiday in my car to Wales last Easter with my Friend and her Grandkids one of who is disabled. Had a lovely time but I got A demand for a parking fine in October for 80 pounds. It included a photo of my car in two different positions. It said I had parked for two hours. It looks to me as if I had parked there earlier to pop in the shop and then later to pop in the shop on my way back and they are saying I was there the whole time. I can remember the days we went to the beach and we paid any parking charge. Otherwise i had s
  23. hi, i made a purchase online for a set of dust filter for my computer from south africa to the UK, i made the payment and payid for shipping for £21, i assumed this was to take care of the import fees, i received the package, a couple of days later i got a letter from DHC saying i owe them VAT of £17, i emailed asking how they came to £17 and they replied saying that i was being charge £7 VAT and a £10 administration charge cause they paid the VAT when they picked up the package, this is the first time i've made a purchase abroad i wa
  24. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-34402322 A car park operator has been disciplined after some of its employees altered photographic evidence to unfairly impose parking charges. UK Parking Control, which operates more than 1,400 car parks, previously admitted some timestamps were changed to make it appear cars had overstayed. The company has been given eight sanction points by the British Parking Association (BPA). It could be expelled from the scheme if it gets more points. If this happens it will not be able to get vehicle keeper details from the DVLA
