  1. Allegedly I drove into the bus lane in august 2014, twice. Bmth Council have sent PCNs and all corespondense to my old address. I moved to the new address in january 14. My oversight was to notify driving licence department of DVLA and presume they will share information with vegicle registration people.. . I letter has been delivered to my on 04/08/15 by the new owner of my old address. Its from Equita. They have been trying to reposess my car for the debt of £579. Since them I have been in touch with Bournemouth Council and TEC, Filled out and sent PC2 and PC3 forms. However, Bournemouth Council is requesting for my application to be rejected on the ground that the correspondence they sent was never returned as undelivered so I had plenty of time and opportunity to reply to them. I believe now both parties are waiting for resolution by TEC. Is there anything else I can do?
  2. Never been involved with bailiffs before so very very worried. The situation is as follows (will try to be as brief as possible) and relates to a parking ticket apparently levied on my husband in Lambeth in Dec 13. Dec 13 - parking ticket issued although not found on my husband's vehicle, and he was displaying what he understood to be a valid parking scratch card at the time. Poor quality photos obtained from Lambeth do show the scratch card as well as the parking ticket (which was not there by the time my husband returned to his vehicle). Notice to Owner sent Jan 14 to old address Charge certificate sent Feb 14 to old address Notice of debt registration sent Apr 14 to old address Warrant of execution sent May 14 to old address We moved to our present address in Aug 13 after living in temporary accommodation following sale of our old address mentioned above in April 13. Present address uninhabitable from May till the August due to building works. Husband sent off V5 and driving licence to DVLA in May for updating but they lost the docs and husband had to complete new forms, matter only resolved and vehicle re-registered in Feb 2014. Notice of enforcement from Equita bailiffs dated 1 July received at our present address on 19 July but not opened till 20th. First we had heard of the matter and my husband contacted Equita immediately spoke to an individual who told him he had 7 days in which to contact council to make representations before any further action would be taken. He has this individual's name. Further letter from Equita dated 21 July received. Husband contacted Equita who would not even allow him opportunity to pay had he wanted to and said he had to deal direct with bailiff appointed. Husband called and texted mobile number provided multiple times (can be evidenced via phone records) but never received any response. He checked number more than once with Equita to make sure he had the right details. In despair following searches on web we found details of stopping the bailiffs and details of the TEC. Contacted them in morning of 14 Aug as we were going on holiday following day and completed and filed forms TE7 and TE9 that day. Confirmation received via email timed 15.40 on 14 August and our understanding was that forms received prior to 4pm would be processed same day and details provided to council and bailiffs same day, so that enforcement would ceased immediately pending investigation. Costs per Equita at that time were £127 for the parking ticket plus £75 bailiff fee. Husband called Equita mid morning of 14th Aug to say he still unable to get in touch with bailiff. Equita said this bailiff no longer assigned to husband's case and did not know who it would be passed to. Husband wanted to get in touch with whichever bailiff dealing with case to make sure they were aware of filing with TEC so nothing should be done whilst we were on holiday. Equita would not take any details to provide to new appointed bailiff and said husband would just have to wait for the bailiff to get in touch with him when appointed. We left for holiday mid morning on 15 August and had received no communication from any bailiff at all, either in person or by phone. Returned from holiday to find a slip of paper posted through the door, UNDATED, stamped 'Enforcement notice'. Threatening further action if we did not contact bailiff within 24 hours. We left message straight away on mobile no provided to say TE7 and TE9 received by TEC on 14 Aug and nothing should be done till outcome determined. Bailiff answer phone message says he will not make calls to mobiles. My husband is only contactable on mobile during business hours as he is self employed working on different sites. He can only be contacted on our house landline evenings and weekends. The Notice of Enforcement added a further fee of £235 onto the fees already charged as above. How, given that the TE7 and TE9 were received by TEC on 14 Aug and we did not receive any bailiff visits certainly before we left for holiday on 15 Aug, was the bailiff entitled to visit our home and charge a huge additional fee when action was supposed to be suspended. What on earth do we do now? Any help much appreciated, we are so worried about what the bailiff will do next if he is prepared to make enforcement visits when enforcement is supposed to have been stopped. Needless to say atmosphere at home is stressed to say the least and the end of our holiday has ben ruined thanks to these people. Very best LittleHen
  3. Hey Guys, Just some of advice please folks. Got a NTO from local council some time ago. Naturally I appealed and heard no more about it. Next i hear is some 11 months later a baliff knocking on my door demanding £317 from me for the unpaid fine. I called the local council who state they'd sent 3 letters following on from my email appeal. They state as they'd sent it they wouldnt hold off action. I contacted National Debt Line and they told me to file an out of time stat dec to the TEC to which I duley did. Got a letter back today advising it has been refused. No reason as to why just refused. What happens from here as the notes on the letter received back were not clear.
  4. My sister got a Notice to Owner through the post in relation to a parking ticket for February (council). Contravention was: 40 Parked in a designated disabled person's parking place without displaying a valid disabled person's badge. My sister cannot remember that far back, but she is adamant that she did not receive a ticket at the time. Appealed to council after NTO, ignored and Charge Certificate issued. Charge Certificate challeneged successfully. New NTO issued 31.7.13. NTO appealed online stated never received original PCN, need copy of original PCN and any photos. reply came today as below: In your response you query the validity of PCN as there are no photographs of the contravention. I would advise you that this PCN was issued at 20:28 on a winter's evening and the pocket book notes of the issuing officer have stated that no photographs were taken at this time. This would have been due to the conditions, as the equipment used by ******** Borough Council CEO's did not give good quality photographs in the dark, due to glare of the flash being reflected onto the lens. They have reduced the PCN to the £35 and given her a further 16 days to pay it. However, without any evidence of the contravention except the word of the CEO and my sister does not recall parking there, is there a chance this would work in a strongly worded appeal letter?
  5. I have recently joined the large number of people like you who have been stung by clamping of my car by Newlyn bailiffs 100 miles away from home for an unpaid parking ticket from over 1 year ago that i never even received. Being part way through the process with the TEC, I have only recently discovered how unfair traffic enforcement legislation is and Bailiffs get away with criminal behviour as most people are too scared or cant be bothered to fight. So after much research I have started a petition, contacted MPs, ombudsmen etc with a view to making a big fuss and causing CHANGE. Please support me in this by signing my petition; unfortunately as a new member I am unable to post a link so if you search petitiononline.com/dbcc33 on google, you should be able to find the link. Once I am able to post a link here I will try and repost. Many thanks in advance!
