Hi, as it seems is happening far to often reading through this forum normal people are suffering at the hands of the almighty councils of our country and at the hands of lying bully boy bailiffs.... If anyone who understands the process better than me could offer some advice I would be eternally grateful! Here is my story: I got a PCN PCN removed from my windscreen so I never knew it occured(Kids seem to find it amusing to put them on other cars where I live ) I have been apparently been sent various Notice to Owner letters but Just after I got this ticket I moved house so obviously never received any Notifications. In fact to date I still have never had one piece of paper/letter presented to me or delivered to my new address asking for money! I got clamped out of the blue 2-3 weeks ago and filled out an out of time declaration which was accepted on the day. They however had my van clamped for 2 days, the bailiff trying every trick in the book to get me to sign to admit the debt or giving permission to levy goods. The warrant was of course at the wrong address. I waited for northapton court to uphold the out of time but I have just received a letter back saying this has been refused and all the action is now back on. I believe this is because whilst moving I didnt tell the DVLA of my change of address (a genuine mistake in the stress of moving but a mistake nevertheless) I am now facing a disproportionate fine (which seems way too common reading in this forum) of over £500 for an unpaid parking fine. I can appeal by way of n244 which will cost me £155 which seems the only way I can be heard, the court have received evidence from the council which has stopped the Out of Time. My question is am I throwing good money after bad if I proceed to go to court and actually be heard as to what has happened? If I pay the bailiff before they turn up do I have pay an attendance fee if they dont attend? Can this really happen? i.e. hold me to ransom with the threat of clamping when everyone concerned knows I have never received a demand for payment as I live at a different address, send me a bill and I will pay it!!!! Any thoughts help or guidance is gratefully received. Thanks in advance
