About Me


  1. My partners car was stationary in a car park on 06/01/2017. There is a fee payable of 50p for 1 hours parking. The driver of the car went to the machine, realised they didn't have change for it, and returned to the car. The car left. The Reg keeper wasn't driving. When they got back to the car, a plastic envelope with a piece of printed cardboard was inside with the name MyParkingCharge.co.uk on. It has a serial number on it and a date only, hand written. It has no offence date, time, day, location, penalty details, appeal details or registration number of the car. As far

  3. Hello All I received a PCN/NTK on 08/10/2017 from “Excel Parking” for parking the car at Peel Center Stockport. The PCN/NTK letter shows: Issue Date (posted): 03/10/2017 PCN Ref No: xxxxxxx VRM (reg no): xxxxxxx Vehicle Make: xxxxxxx Vehicle Model: xxxxxxx Contravention Date: 16/09/2017 Contravention time: 11:15 Duration of Stay: 36 minutes I was unware I had to pay for being in the car (waiting) for short time as my wife took my daughter to use the toilet while I was waiting in the car until they return from the toilet. The notice says if payment is ma
  4. Registered to follow this as I'm going through the same thing as of today. I've tried to read all the newbie threads but they're confusing so hoping this will give some clarity.
  5. For anyone facing court action regarding this car park, be advised that Excel parking is deemed to be the Creditor .. the legal entity entitled to enforce parking charges and legal action. Excel have a contract with the landowner. Any legal action launched by VCS is not relevant in law as they have no contract with landowner and are not the Creditor. They are a separate legal entity. If you are facing court action from VCS use this as your defence.
  6. Hello all, I've received a PCN through the post from Excel Parking, here's a brief explanation. My car parked in an area it had not parked in before and was not familiar with any of the parking. This was simply to pick up a takeaway. My car was advised by the takeaway that there was parking behind that is free after 6pm. So my car went after 6pm, only saw one car park behind and parked there for just over 20 mins. I (the keeper) have received a PCN from Excel Parking. Once this was received I had a look online and it seems they have been rather sneaky in this area. It looks l
  7. Hi all, new to CAG but hoping you can help! My husband has received a claim for for a PCN over a year ago which I feel is unfair and would strongly like to contest on the basis that none of the parking machines were working on the night he parked there. I have just completed the Acknowledgement of Service online amd intend to request info under CPR 31:14 but I would really appreciate any help you can offer, particularly with respect to what I should specifically request. Thanks in advance!
  8. Hello guys i'm new here so looking for some help. i have a debt with penham excel for council tax with a notice of enforcement dated the 15th of march 2018. Of course i am liable for the debt totaling £255.00 £180 council tax arrears and £75 Complinace stage fee and i paid £100 by phone on the 9th of april. I then received a letter hand delivered by an enforcement officer stating that because he had attended my property on the 12th of april i now owed another £235 taking the total up to £490...i feel this is a bit cheeky of them and is it lawful? Thanks for any help y
  9. Hi, I have received a letter from DCBL which states: "Your overdue amount of £269.48 due to Excel parking services ltd in relation to a county court judgement number xxxxxx has now been passed to DCBL to recover the debt on their behalf" It also mentions a further £75 + vat charge. I have searched lots of forums and the advice has been consistent to ignore all letters from Excel parking or any debt recovery firms. i am concerned this letter mentions CCJ number which suggests a CCJ has been issued. I dont recall receiving any court letters, although i have changed address.
  10. Came home to a letter dated 1/9/17 from Excel informing me my "account" has been passed to BW legal, and a letter dated 1/9/17 from BW legal stating same. It's an ANPR PCN, date of contravention 25/6/17, contravention - "parked without purchasing a valid pay & display ticket", location - Peel Centre Pay & Display Car Park Stockport, balance due £160 (£100 PCN charge plus Excel's "initial legal costs of £60", ha ha, very funny). "As you have failed to make a payment or raise an appeal within 28 days from the date of the PCN, the Balance Due remains outstanding and we require paymen
  11. First of all, thanks for the great forum and I am sorry that my first post is a request, it would have been nicer to have helped someone else first. In 2011, I received a parking notice from a privately owned car park. This was at st andrews retail park Hull (HU3 4EB). I initially disputed the notice by phone for the usual reasons that there is no contract and the car park is free for two hours, but also based on the sign and situation. I was only parked for about 10 mins as I popped into Wilko to get a fuse for the car. However, I had parked in a Taxi bay
  12. Hi, I have received a county court claim form from BW Legal on behalf of Excel parking. Details are; Principle debt £100 Interest £21.32 Court fees £25 Solicitors costs £104 Total £250.32 This is for parking at cavendish retail park in keighley on 10/04/2014 I intend to fight this all the way. I have signed up on MCOL and sent an acknowledgement of service so I now have approximately 20 days to get my defence together. I am also about to sent the CPR 316 request to BW Legal. Can this be done via Email? Is there anything else
  13. I received 2 parking charge notices from Excel Parking for alleged contraventions of their conditions. The first was for parking on 15/05/2017 and the PCN issue date was 06/06/2017 the second was for parking on 17/5/2017 and the PCN issue date was 05/06/2017. There is absolutely no question that the appropriate tickets were purchased, displayed correctly and we did not overstay their duration. On one occasion my partner purchased the ticket and the other I did, so it would be doubtful if we inputted the wrong registration number although as the last letter of our registr
  14. Hello It feels like I'm running round in circles at the moment in regards to our council Tax debt and the zero co-operation I'm getting from the Council or Baillifs in regards to paying it off! We owe 2 amounts to Baillifs Penham Excel 1x £934 and 1x £1465 - both way over what we actually owe the council! Baillifs have been 4 times now and each time I've refused entry into the house to do a walk in possession, but today he turned into a smart a*** and said he would go away and get an order to take away my car (no finance on it and only worth around £1200). This has really worr
  15. Hi, Today I've received a parking charge notice from Excel Parking Services Ltd for a car park that I frequently park (and pay) at. This ticket came about because I normally pay online using RingoGo - but in this once instance I was catching an unusually early train and the RingoGo payment application reported that the carpark was closed even though the physical signage reports 24 hours opening. As a result I was unable to buy my ticket and hence received the ticket. £100 (or even the reduced £60) charge seem extortionate, particular conside
  16. Hi everyone, I parked my car at the Peel Centre in Stockport to pickup an item which was reserved for me in Argos. Its my first visit at the Peel Centre and no doubt will be the last. Upon arrival there were no visible signs or parking machines around the perimeter so I gathered the parking was free. I went to the store to pickup the item but was told it was reserved by their other store just around the corner. The staff asked if I parked my car here, I replied yes and so she advised me to leave the vehicle here and its only a 5 minute walk. I took her advice
  17. I am disabled and have a vehicle for use by carers including my two daughters. I received a PCN dated 06/07/2015 alleging the offence took place on 10/02/2015. Furthermore, they had no photographic evidence showing the vehicle parked in a bay without a ticket, instead relying on the entry/exit photographs. My daughter who had the vehicle that day says that she got a ticket but she may have put an incorrect registration, albeit still a valid one. I have ignored their letters, but today received a County Court Summons. I intend to refute the claim because of the da
  18. Hi all, first post and looking for advice/plan of attack. Parking Notice relates back to 15 May 2012. I was registered keeper but not using the vehicle at the time (I was in bed after a night shift!) The car park in question is free for 1 hour and no option to pay. The notice relates to an over stay. The original paperwork from June 2012 showed photo evidence of the vehicle, but no image of the driver. I don't have this anymore. binned it 6 months ago thinking this had gone away. BW Legal are now involved and I've sent them one denial letter. I did state I was going to c
  19. Morning Caggers, Received a letter from BW Legal yesterday re an alleged parking offence at an Excel car park dating back to 2013!! The Excel parking letter is stating that "Your account has been passed to our legal team" BW Legal have said the following: Contravention Description: Parking without displaying a valid ticket/permit Contravention Location: Peel Centre, Stockport Anpr Charging Scheme Std (60-100) "We have been instructed by Excel Parking Services Ltd in relation to the Balance Due for the above PCN. For the avoidance of doubt, the Balance Due inclu
  20. Please can you help The background is, I drive a company vehicle which is obviously registered to my employer. In July 2015, I parked on a car park which I thought was free to park in, but it turns out it wasn't (though has since been made a free to park car park) Neither myself nor my company received a penalty notice, however in May, BW Legal sent a letter which has been seen several times on this forum. I replied, following advice lifted from this forum, stating: "Dear Sirs Your ref: xxxxxxxxxx I refer to your letter dated 19th May 2016. Firstly, I
  21. In 2014 i received a letter from Excell over a parking fine. As i was the keeper of the car i wasent the driver . I passed it to the driver and he sent a copy of the ticket to Excel he then got a reply saying he was parked in a disabled space he replied again saying he wasent. Nothing was heard again until June 2016 when i got a letter from BW legal demanding 154 pounds, while going on varies web sites a great number of people told me to ignore. After many letters since it has gone up to 248pounds 22 pence and court papers. The courts are offering s
  22. Hi. I have received the, seemingly standard, BW Legal £154 letter relating to a ticket received in November 2011. This "car park" was a piece of unused land just outside the centre of Sheffield which, as far as I was aware was owned by a Chinese restaurant adjacent to the land. My band was playing a gig at a pub also adjacent to the land and, as we had done many times before, we left my car on the land as we played the gig. At the end of the evening we came out to find an excel PCN slapped on the windscreen. We then discovered that there was a little car pa
  23. Hi I'm really hoping somebody can help. On Jan the 8th I parked on private land in Nottingham (county house excel parking) and displayed my ticket. On return to my car I had a ticket for parking outside of the bay. I immediately took photos as my car is in the bay one wheel is out. I have uploaded a picture for you to see. I had to park like this because of the way the car next to me was parked my passengers couldn't get out, this would be visible on CCTV (however the camera was pointing down so I'm not sure it was working I took a picture of this also).
  24. Hello I had a few letters from bw legal saying I had until 6th August to resolve outstanding parking pcn charges before court action, I've been away for a few days and phoned them today to sort it (defend) and they said they have already issued court proceedings on 2nd August! Ten mins later I've received court claim papers. The amount they are claiming is £1950 for 19 alleged offences. There is no way I've parked on their car park and not paid 19 times and I've not had loads of letters either. Some dates go back to 2013 Is it too late to defend this now?
  25. Is anyone aware of BW actually going to the county courts and winning? Also how many letters will I be looking at receiving before I get a county court claim form? Mine dates back to July 2012!
