    • OK.  So you lent your car to a friend in 2019 and he racked up three parking tickets that he tells you he didn't know anything about(!).  You were the registered keeper (RK) at the time at your family address, but you got chucked out and could not change your RK address with DVLA because you were homeless.  You knew nothing about the parking tickets and enforcement action until you got a bailiffs' letter passed on to you.  You made an Out of Time (OOT) application in respect of one PCN but Birmingham CC objected to it and the traffic court rejected your application.  A solicitor helped you make OOTs in respect of the other two PCNs but you don't yet know the outcome of those two applications.   Is that the situation you are in?   dx100uk thinks you can resubmit the application saying your friend was the driver.  I don't think saying that will help as the driver is irrelevant.  It's the owner who is liable to pay the charge and that is the RK (unless the RK is a car hire firm).  I assume you are not a car hire firm so you are stuck with the liability, not the driver.   Whether you actually can resubmit an OOT once one has been rejected I do not know, but why not try.  What did the solicitor put on the applications they helped you with?  Did you not ask their advice about the rejected application while you were with them?  I think you would have to say something to the effect that you never received any paperwork in relation to the PCNs because you had been chucked out of your home and because you were homeless you did not update your address at DVLA.  That is the truth isn't it?  You don't want to lie on the application.   To me that's a good reason for you not doing anything about the PCNs, but I suspect that Birmingham CC will object again and that the traffic court will reject again.  And, as I said above, I don't even know if you can submit a second OOT application in respect of a PCN if the first has been rejected.   So it looks to me like you might be a bit stuck.   Unless dx100uk, or spaceman61, or another poster with expertise in local authority PCNs comes along I'm not sure what you do.   If you get no more helpful suggestions here you could try on National Consumer Service.  If you do go there, do not register with a hotmail address.  You will also need to provide them with a timeline of everything for all the documents you actually have, and you will need all the facts and dates etc at your fingertips.  And make sure they are accurate.   http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showforum=30   And get your friend to contribute to paying off the PCNs.  Do you believe he really knew nothing about them?

    • Hi Charlie and welcome to CAG   As an Executor, you have a duty to insure the property and tell the currect insurer of the passing of the deceased.   Most insurers will refuse normal contents cover on a house left unoccupied beyond 60 days. So, unoccupied, the home will not be insured against break-in damage, theft, flood, accidental damage, etc.   You may be able to obtain FLEE insurance covering only Fire, Lightening, Explosion and Earthquake. It may cost more than usual contents cover  because the home is unoccupied, even though the level/amount of cover is less than for an occupied home.   As said here already, an Executor would be wise (or indeed have a duty) to remove valuables from the home if you have somewhere safer to store them pending Probate, distribution, sale, etc.   I hope if you can explain the insurance risks to YB and assure him that you are not taking items just for your own benefit, he may see sense.   Please keep us updated ............

If you get no joy try the National Debt Line they are very helpful, if you are really struggling try CCCS they offer advice and can help to get payments reduced. There are letters you can send to help stop the phone calls. I am sure someone soon will come along with lots more knowledge than I have. I know you feel helpless but you will get loads of help from the people on this forum. I have. DG:)

CCCS is the Consumer Credit Counselling Service you can find them on the web check out their website. If you ring them they will make an appointment to ring you back at a convenient time and date. It may just be worth your while having a chat with them. In most cases creditors accept their offers. As everyone will tell you what you haven't got they can't have. Please try to cheer up - everyone is here to help and we have all been in the same situation - in debt - and still are. You will get plenty of advice from this forum - the advice is from everyones own experiences.:) DG

Please do not sell your car. We had a car took of us because the owner before us took a lbl on it then stopped paying. We lost a lot of money as we have no rights to the car. We now fighting to get money back.

 

If you sell the car it can be took from the new owner, they don't have a leg to stand on other than taking you to court for fraud.

you can go to your local court and obtain an injunction which will prevent them from being able to take your car....at the same time ask the judge for a time order which will give you more time to pay. Its not difficult but if they arrive at your door they will take ur ar so get the order NOW.

browneyedgirl...you need to go to your local court and fill in a form number N1 it will cost you 150 pounds but will stop them in their tracks. you apply for an injunction on the basis that they have threatened to take your car and you are disputing their bill of sale which you believe was not executed properly..ie if you did not sign it in front of an attesting solicitor then in terms of the bills of sale act 1878 ammendement act it is void. also tel him you are having difficulties financially and ask him to freeze the intrest and ask him for and extended time order. Also tell the judge they are a company of ill repute and that the oft are minded to revoke their license. you can verify this by looking at other threads on this site that refer to log book loans...im sure this will help if you do it.
