Hello, I am in a very difficult situation with Wandsworth council over council tax. This started back last year with when I moved into a shared property with some other people and for some reason the Council tax was put under my name and the name of someone else that didn't live here. The council never sent me a bill or any correspondence until I received a summons for none payment of council tax. At this point I emailed them and explained I live in a shared house with other people and I had not received any bill and the bill should not be in my sole name. I was then informed that someone would look into this and get back to me. The next thing I heard was a Bailiff coming to my door threatening to take my stuff away or I have to pay the full amount plus over 20% of fees on top. I contacted the council again asking about any appeal or the fact that the bill is not solely mine, it took them 2 weeks to reply by email which they told me that I have had the chance to appeal and that they sent me a multiple occupancy form, which they never did. They also told me to contact the Bailiff from now on. The worse thing about this is I suffer from PSTD and extreme bouts of depression and I have recently been laid off because me taking time off because of this situation to go back on medication and into therapy. Before this I had been medication free for over a year. I feel I have been treated most unfairly and all I wanted was the chance to pay the bill in installments and for the bill not to be solely my responsibly. Is there anything I can do? as the situation seems to be getting worse no matter what I try. Thanks!
Parked in a residents only space, the other side of the road was P+D lots of spaces. Bought ticket £3 thinking all was good. got PCN, wrote to council before notice was served pointing out it was obviously a mistake and I didn't intend to flout parking regulations knowingly as there we plenty of places to park and I wouldn't of bought the £3 ticket. They have replied saying no go I have to pay. On the ticket itself where the offence is printed with codes etc it crosses the generic type on the ticket so it cant be read, does this make it invalid in any way? They made it clear what the offence was in the reply email I got when I begged! Thanks all
Was visiting my daughter in Earlsfield (wandsworth) from manchester. I parked on main high street and very stupidly mis-read the parking pay and display machine. totally my fault - i read it as payable between 10am and 4pm but did not realise that it was no parking/no loading or unloading outside of these hours. so i payed the parking fee and put the sticker on my windscreen. when i returned at 4.40 my car had been removed. initially thought it had been stolen cos still didnt realise my mistake re parking times. however someone in a shop had seen it being removed "about 10 - 15 mins earlier". my question is - obviously i DID park in a no parking/loading area at that time - but are they allowed to issue a pcn at 4.18pm and tow the car away almost immediately? it must have been removed at about 4.25-4.30. The pcn was given to me when i picked up the car from the pound but i have no information about the actual removal of the car. also the pcn was given to me in perfet condition - doesn't seem to have ever been stuck to the car? is it worth me appealing for the £200 removal fee? I have paid the £55 pcn fee as well - had to pay the full amount to get the car back, although i do not dispute the pcn fee! any help would be appreciated.
