  1. Bailiff has called at door - TE7 to submit immediately - its Friday night and I am worried - advice please I am completely new to posting on a forum and somewhat stressed - I shall try and be as succinct as possible and would ask for the Site's parking fine guru's to reply before Monday am. In essence: Thank you for reading : *Nov 13 - 'free' Xmas shopping parking day announced by local borough council As a local resident I inadvertently parked for a few mins., in an area not included. *Apcoa issued penalty - £35 pay now or £70 in full *... sent a £35 cheque which was returned by Apcoa in Jan (I think) saying they could not process without more details - a reference number was missing despite me returning the slip with the cheque? *I did return the cheque again, with what detail I had, but by this time it was outside the time for a reduced payment. I sent a covering letter explaining the circs and that I would now consider the matter closed * Apcoa Letter posted to me dated 3.6.14 rec'd asking for £77 - 11.6 I emailed them saying I had paid and sent a letter and Still considered the matter closed. I did show my email address and they did not reply. * roll forward to this week (3.9.14) It appears now that the matter was passed on and has ended up with Equita who called in person at my Tenant's house with a compliment slip (!!) in hand detailing a debt now totaling £387!! * Tenan't contacted via my mother whom contacted me - I called the Bayliff IMMEDIATELY and he said only action was to call Glos C Council in the morning. * GCC only refer online back to Apcoa who were useless on the phone giving me 3 numbers for Equita and the Traffic Enforcement Agency - none of the numbers worked! *I found for myself the TE7 info on line and have downloaded the form. On another Thread I did see some advice about not posting them and also getting the form back quickly. As its now the weekend I have no choice but to wait until Monday am. I've gathered copies of what I have and will attach to the emailed TE7. As it is Friday and time was running out I called the Bayliff back and told him I have researched using a TE7 form myself and that I want his assurance he will hold actions until I get an outcome. He has given me until 1700 on Tuesday but said if my car gets spotted it could be clamped or removed! I rang the Bayliff back last night with an update - his advice was that I should have paid the fine and then argued the fine - when I explained I had paid the fine - he eventually gave me until Tue 1700 but warned me the warrant is open and I could be spotted in my car and still clamped! Notable additions are: that my name has changed from the one on all their correspondence (legally via deed-poll) and that I have moved house twice in the last year. DVLA do Now have my up-to-date details (not as a result of this action but because I noticed my Ins Broker had not updated my Car Ins Docs). Thanks
  2. Need some advice for a friend of mine. a guy she use to see bought a car in her name without her consent. She doesn't drive neither does she have a full UK license, even the police had knowledge of the situation because it was used to commit an offense and she was cleared of all charges. This same guy put her in hospital and she went through the process of getting a restraining order etc. She has a crime reference number to prove all this. The total amount of the fines was about £4000 but was brought down to £2430 so far she has been able to pay £1735 and left with the sum of £705. At this junction, I must add that, she was only paying all these fines because she had no idea that she had any rights and could afford to at the time. It has now reach stage that is hard for her. She is depressed and not sure what to do in this situation. She has gone to the police and also Citizens Advice Bureau who say there's nothing they can do. She is a student who pays rent and struggling to keep up with payments on her own and no longer willing to take on debt that was incurred by someone else. In her letter to Barnet council she included the last known address of the guy responsible. Is there anything she can do to help this situation? It has got to the stage where she has given up and wants to wait for bailiffs to turn up and take her goods which I know will affect her in the long run.
  3. Phoenix Collections Unpaid PCN Hi everyone this is the first time I have posted here, I would be grateful if anyone could give me advice with the following. I brought a car last year for £300, but registered it in my wifes name, I did not tell her I had done this, I did this because I had bailiffs pursuing me for unpaid council tax. I then got a parking ticket in a council owned car park which I appealed and this was turned down. I then forgot about it as we were going through a mortgage rescue at the time and keeping a roof over our heads was a priority. The council then sent a notice to owner addressed to my wife which I got to before she did, I then contacted the council, expaining our financial circumstances with an offer to pay £5 per month. I signed an agreement to pay the council and made two payments, I was then made bankrupt and thought the debt would be included in my bankruptcy. The council has now obtained a warrant and my wife has bailiffs chasing her for the debt, this is the first time my wife became aware of what I had done. The amount owed is escalating rapidly, it is up to nearly £450 now. My question is if we pay the original PCN direct to the council will this stop the bailiffs, or is there likely to be further charges incured by the council obtaining the warrant. My wife is completely inoccent in all this she does not even drive, she has written to the council to explain her situation and they have not been helpful. Many Thanks Noah257
