  1. My issue I received by post two Notice to Owner letters dated 11/11/2014 in different envelopes. These letter refer to the same office '27 Parked in a special enforcement area adjacent to footway, cycle track or verge lowered to meet the level of the carriage way. Both have a unique PCN number on them for a notice I have never seen or been aware of, nor handed to me in person nor left on my vehicle for me to find. Both refer to a contravention date and time, one 8/10/2014 at 10.52 PN11112536 and the other 8/10/2014 at 12.26 PN110-9538A for the same location, a local authority local road. Both request a payment within 28 days of £130. I can also make representation by post on a number of grounds should I think they apply. In addition on the same date 8/10/2014 I found my vehicle was missing from the roadside outside my home address where I can usually see it from my kitchen window and that it apparently had been impounded by the council. After I made some enquiries I found out where my vehicle was, that I had a dropped kerb offence which I had not noticed before, so I complied and paid £200 (removal fee)+£65 (parking fine) =total of £265 on the following day 9/10/2014 (within 24 hours) to the car compound in order I could get my vehicle back and park again outside my home address. At the time of paying this 3rd PCN and towing fine I was given a photocopy of another (3rd) PCN PN11095390 again that I had not previously seen, again dating the same offence, same date as two above two PCNs but time 8/10/2014 12.28. Apparently then removed by the council on 8/10/2014 at 12.33 to their car compound. My questions are 1 Do I have any grounds to see representation for all three PCNs for this same offence, on the same date, on the same location, by the same council, where my vehicle had not been moved, until the council removed it at 8/10/2014 at 12.33. Note I have already filled in a representation form to Warrington in Cheshire for PN 11095390 that I was made aware of on 8/10/2014 at the car compound. 2 Is it normal for a council to issue Notice to Owners letters to car owners without serving a PCN to them, and is this legal in the case of the ' 27' offence, in my case in question, parked near to dropped kerb but some 1 1/2 feet away from it on the carriageway. 3 Should I seek representation on the grounds that 'The penalty charge exceeded the amount applicable in the circumstances. In this case I have already paid £65 for the PN11095390 for time 8/10/2014 12.28, so should I be also need to pay two more fines as well for PN11112526 for a time 8/10/2014 10.52 and PN1109538A for a time 8/10/2014 12.26.? On balance these fines seem very excessive and costly and I think all 3 PCNs, (none that were ever handed to me or ever left on my vehicle), belong to the same single incident and span only 34 minutes apart. Note I have already raised a formal complaint to the council 'Major' as an email titled ' excessive parking fines' with reference to -over eager traffic wardens, -a lack of parking spaces due to daily commuters taking up all the parking spaces so that residents can not park correctly, -the fact my car was in need of attention due to engine / starting problems, -the fact I was engaged at the time in a household 'leaking gas' national grid emergency repair and could not be called away immediately from my home, -a lack of residents only parking zone unlike adjacent areas nearby, -a question about the 3 minute rule being ignored judging by when my car was removed (12.33) on PN 10095390 (12.28) -No opportunity to pay at a reduced cost. - a question whether these computer generated NTO letters were not an error. (when I go into council site no photo graphs are available at all for the PN in question, so I wonder if there was every any evidence taken at the time by the traffic warden wandering my council estate?) The recipient being the Major for the area then notified me that the council were looking into my complaint. I also noticed the other day out of my kitchen window a owned council truck parked directly across the same dropped kerb outside my home. So I took two photos of it and sent them to the council worker who had replied to me, making the point How come Council worker can park across the same dropped kerb,- a sort of hypocrisy going on. Can I ask for some degree of leniency in this case, or do I simply have to pay up for the other two at a cost of £260? Any advice would be most welcome on where I legally stand and whether I have any ground for representation at all?.
  2. Hi, This is my first post, so please excuse the ramblings,but i was hoping someone would be able to offer help with my situation. which I will try to summise as briefly as possible: In November of last year I received a letter from Restons solicitors stating I owed an amount to HFC bank from a credit card contract agreement dated on or about February 1995 for x amount, so pay up. Not knowing what it was about, I wrote and asked for a copy of the agreement. Several days later I received a Claim form from Northampton CC Bulk Centre, with the limited time to reply, so only having an agree or dispute, I used the on-line facililty to object, stating that I had not received details of what the claim was about. Received confirmation of response, followed by a letter in early December acknowledging and stating that a copy had gone to the claiimant, stating that they may contact you I received a letter from Restons stating they had not received my letter,unsure precisely what details I required, a copy of a statement with transaction details, that I had no defence, and withdraw my defence or I would pay. I responded by letter, stating that I wanted to see a copy of of the agreement dated on or about February 1995 before I could comment further, received no reply. Received allocation questionnaire, which I duly filled and returned Received a Notice of Transfer of Proceedings stating that I would receive directions regarding allocation. This morning I received a General Form of Judgement or Order stating: The defendant must file at Court and serve on the Claimant a proper degfence setting out precisely upon what basis he denies the claim by 4pm 11th March, failing which the Defence shall be struck out without further order. What can I do next?
  3. I need some help if possible people. I am currently letting out my property out, the lease runs out on 28th August 2012. We would like to move back into the property having just moved back from Singapore when the lease expires. i informed the estate agents managing the property that i chose not to extend the lease and she told me "The lease finishes on 28.08.12. if you want to serve the tenant with notice this will need to be done by 28.06.12." I did so by e mail and phone and just got a e mail from the estate agents saying "I will need to serve the tenants notice today and they will ask me why you are serving them notice, If they refuse to vacate i will also need to give a reason ie: selling property. It is also worth noting that once notice is served they are free to leave whenever they like therefore if they were to find something they could move out tomorrow" The estate agent phoned and said this was unlikely to happen as he is ill and is speaking to the council to get some help and he will most probably leave later, much later.. I informed her that i didnt mind him moving early but if he didnt move out on the end of the tenancy agreement i would not be happy as we wish to move back into the property having just arrived back from Singapore and are spending money on storage costs the longer we cant move in... Is this correct? i thought (perhaps naively) that if i served notice that when the lease expires on the 28th August the tenant must move.. What are my options?
