  1. I called up the payment line to claim back my surety fee today after my vehicle had been clamped by the NSL on behalf of the DVLA for no tax. I was told I had until yesterday to claim it back. It was stated in the leaflet i was given that i had 15 days to claim. Today is the 15th day, but the payment centre said yesterday was the 15th day. I had my car clamped on Tuesday 29 January. Today is Wednesday 13 February which is exactly 15 days after my vehicle was clamped. I am awfully distressed about this as i desperately need the refund. What can i do? Where can i take thi
  2. Saw my car with a clamp on it this morning and found out it was due for non payment of a PCN which I appealed against. Now i never received the council's response to my appeal and the only letter i recently received was on the Wednesday ( which i was told by the enforcement office, was hand delivered! which I think was posted via royal mail) The letter from the bailiffs stated i owe £200 as the for the PCN and court an legal fee due immediately. I was actually going to response to their letter today, but then saw the car clamped and i was charged £438 which had to be paid
  3. Hi All, My first post - please be gentle this is a very stressful and difficult time! Back in Feb I received a PCN from Manchester CC. I can't recall why I was even in Manchester or anything about the circumstances. I was pregnant at the time and unfortunately lost my baby in April. From there everything went to pot. I couldn't cope with day-to-day life, I left my job and things that should have been sorted just, well, weren't. Fast forward a few months and I received a letter from Equita stating that they had a court warrant to deal with this. Having had nothin
  4. Hoping for some advice..... Had my car clamped this morning for an unpaid parking ticket. The car itself is on finance, so when I told the bailiff this he said he was immobilising the car instead. He's acknowledging that they can't remove or sell the car, but says immobilising it is fine. His paperwork states he has taken control of it, though he says that telling me he's changed that to just immobilising it is enough. Surely he shouldn't have immobilised it in the first place, it's not my property, though it is the car mentioned in the paperwork for the PCN. He's ada
  5. Wondering if one of the experienced users on here can help here with this one? Yesterday afternoon I found my car clamped by Marstons Bailiffs - no paperwork whatsoever only a scribble and phone number so I phoned them to find out that apparently I failed to pay the congestion charge in November last year but know nothing about it as they send all paperwork to a previous address even though I updated my address with the DVLA in 2017!!! Then the bailiff stopped answering any of calls when I tried to ask her about PCN information etc and the TEC phonelines were not being answered yest
  6. Hi All In brief my son bought a car 3 weeks ago and applied for the log book (he had the green slip). Whilst parked outside our house it got clamped because of a parking fine the previous owner had incurred. Despite my son having the log book back and in his name the bailiff is yet to remove the clamp claiming that the system his end has not been updated. DVLA have advised we call the police but I know they won't be interested. The car is obviously illegally clamped but where would we stand if we removed it? Thanks in advance
  7. Equita today come to clamp my car outside the street. The car it's a PCO registered car (currently expired) and it has the insurance in the name of a friend (he got a business trade insurance)for more then 3 months. as I am not driving the car due to access to a company van. I keep the car as I was going to do partime Uber driving with it. Do you think sending a backdated change of logbook name to DVLA will do the trick?
  8. Hi this is a continuation of an old parking ticket . I have had my car clamped by the enforcement after they visited me with regard to an unpaid parking fine . It doesn't bother me as the day before the engine blew up so it looks like a good car but is really scrap . My question is how long will it remain here before they have to move it or de-clamp it. The second question is because this is private land it seems they have taken control (on a highway) is this right . I don't want to make any contact with them . Thanks
  9. I have had my car clamped for about a week now in front of my house. I have appealed the case with TEC, and I have had a response that it can be heard within 2 to 6 weeks time. I need the car what are my OPTIONS? Should I pay or get the EA to remove the clamps? The amount is £513.

  11. I Wonder if anyone can help. I have a debt that although I still dispute was incorrect they were able to get a CCJ. The dept was for approx £2000. After a visit last year from a high court officer I set up a payment plan of £60 a month which I have been paying for the last 9 months or so. I have been paying the middle of the month as I understood the payment was due the 26th of each month. We went to visit a friend for 8 days in Barcelona got a call from the person looking after our pet that our car was clamped on the drive by a person who I assume acts from Elliot
  12. Good morning All, Birmingham city council bailiff came to my door on Monday morning after clamping a car outside. AS of the end of March this year I owe £35 council tax balance from last year and have not even received the bill the new financial year yet. I pay my council tax on monthly basis by internet transfer. I have had contact with Equitax for a few years now and have spoken to them on number of occasions and explained that I really don’t owe the council anything. They usually stop contacting me for months and then start again. Basically, the bailiff said that the count was
  13. Hi can anyone advise me if I will be fined. I declared my car off the road when the tax run out as we only use one car so its been sat outside my house for a while untaxed, I have been meaning to scrap it and spoke with a scrapyard a couple of times who said they would come and pick it up but they never turned up, someone on the street must have reported it to the dvla now and it has been clamped today. I don't want the car, I rung the car tax enforcement company that has taken the car and told them, she said if you don't want it don't pay the release
  14. I sold my car on may 14 2014, the person who bought it said they only had half the money so an agreement was to pay the rest over the next 5 months. After five months i realised that the person had no intention of paying the to me and i had already spent the deposit he gave me. anyhow, he eventually stated that when U give him back his deposit he will give me back the vehicle. I paid the guy his money in August 2015. In November 2015 I left my house to go to work only to see my vehicle clamped. I called the number on the paper that was on the window and he said that the car will be r
  15. I'm wondering if you could possibly offer me any advice, like you have kindly given to many before me. The Task Enforcement came this morning at 7am to tell me that my car had been clamped, and that I could un-clamp it by paying a fee of £535 It all started on 22.07.2015 when I was contacted by my old landlady. She told me I was being chased by Bailiff's for unpaid Congestion Charge Penalty Notice. I realized that DVLA must still have my old address, so I immediately sent off my driving license, and also called the Congestion people. They said that I now owed about £270 from ent
  16. Hi All I am a first time poster. I had a charge for not paying my fine for the congestion charge, and tbh have let the thing snowball to the point that Task enforcement arrived this morning and clamped my car on private property (driveway) and sneakily slipped a bit of paper and drove off. I did ring them and offered to pay half the fine as this is all i have. But heh hoo they denied it. Points. The car is on finance I did and always have a removal of implied access of entry. She acknowledged this when i told her. Thank you for time.
  17. Hi, Walked out this morning at around 7:30am to get to work and found my car had been clamped with a no-tax sticker on the windscreen. Through ringing the payment line, dvla and enforcement agency (NSL), it has been clamped due to showing on the system as not being taxed since 10/01/2015. I live on a high street, the car was parked in a marked residential bay on the street with a valid residents permit. I know for a fact it has been taxed throughout this year. Anyway, much confusion later, I see my neighbour and tell him what happened and he says he had a letter in my name come

  19. I paid a fine with the court for £145, albeit a few days late. For a speeding fine. My partner has his car clamped by the HCEO for an outstanding amount of £310. How can it be so high? He has to prove he is the owner for them to remove the clamp but say they will do so today. The car isn't mine but has been clamped because of the fact I owe £310. What can I do?
  20. Hi, I am new to this website so please could you help me out here. I stupidly took a loan out against my car. I was paying every month until I had to move quickly due to domestic violence. in the madness of it all I forgot about the logbook loan, until Last Thursday morning at 04.00am I got woke up by a neighbour banging on my door saying someone was pulling my car up onto the back of a flatbed wagon. As I am disabled I got to the front door as quick as I could . The guy who was putting my car onto the back of the truck asked me if I had £
  21. Sorry i am new to this page and i don't know how it works well. I live in Reading and i brought a Spanish car with Spanish registration on the 8th June 2014. I brought the car into UK for bringing goodies into my home in Reading. On the 16th June 2014 a police officer stopped my partner when he was driving the car and the police officer clamped and impounded the car because the car was used in UK without a UK license and UK tax. On the 17th June i paid 260 pound fee for releasing the car from the pound and paying a surety fee. Then, i was explained that the car neede
  22. Brief history as follows: Last June, we had some outstanding council tax arrears which we subsequently paid direct to the council, minus excessive bailiff fees (at the time, well over £800!). Shortly after we paid the council, we woke to find wife's car clamped in our driveway. Car was then towed last July and stored until we received a "notice of sale" this June. The notice of sale showed the debt bailiffs were chasing was approx £500 in fees, £200 storage. And the £1100 car was shown as worth only £150 ahead of auction! Heard nothing since, assuming they had sold the
  23. I own a small business and had ran up a business debt amounting to just over £5,000. Unfortunately the creditor would not be patient with me and so obtained a CCJ. I had made promises to pay futuristically, but yesterday I received a visit from two gentlemen from NCS who are from the North East. They were polite throughout, but it was clear that they were not leaving until they had received a payment and they even clamped my car. I settle half of the debt as a result of that move, paying them the last I had in my business account. I just wondered if it was legal for them to do this?
  24. hello all i really need help i had a pcn on my car a year or so ago and ignored it. but today i went to me car and it was clamped!! i rang the company that did this and they sent a young bailiff round to my house with a copy of a clamping order when i started screaming and asked to see his certificate to my dismay he produced it and was nice about everything which annoyed me no end they say i have 24 hours to pay the 285 or they will remove the car and store it for five days then sell it after reading some things on here i seen a popal appeal? which what i
  25. Hi. New to the forum - discovered while searching for clampers. Leaving the house this morning i discovered my car was clamped with a sticker on drivers window, attached below [ATTACH=CONFIG]47466[/ATTACH] It relates to a supposed unpaid parking ticket from westminster council. I believe I may have already paid this months ago but I am still looking for the paperwork and online receipt. The ticket is £202 and the bailiff fee is £240, total £442 being demanded in cash. I have not received any paperwork through the letterbox nor did the bailiff make attempt to knock on my door.
