Hi, I hope someone will be able to give me some urgent advice, however Im a bit unclear about the dates/times as I have recently moved and cannot find previous paperwork.


Up until Nov 2007 I worked for Haringey Council, and picked up a number of Parking tickets throughout my 4 years doung home visits etc, many I left until the bailiffs clamped my car and I have paid £100's of pounds in fees.


Around mid 2008 I received a letter from Haringey Parking stating that they have incresed the charge to £80 (I think) as I had failed to pay a PCN. I was pretty sure that I had no outstanding tickets and when I checked the date of the alledged offence it was approx 12 months before the letter had been sent to me. Now from my experience of Councils and Parking tickets I know that they do not wait a year to write to you and increase the fee, so I wrote back to them challanging the ticket, explained that I had not received a ticket on my car and the PCN was actually dated a year ago, please could they send me evidence that they had issues the ticket and wrote letters to inform me that they were increasing the charges etc etc.

I did not receive a response and thought that they had not bothered/assigned it to the bin/realised their mistake etc etc.


Wrong, they passed the ticket to Equita who have wrote to me about 6 times in 2 weeks, threatening removal of my goods, fine is now at £182.73

They applied for a Warrant of Exection at TEC at Northampton CC.

I called them today and they said that they would continue to remove goods for their payment.

I guess my disagreement is with Haringey, and the Equita wolves will continue to call at the door until they are called off!!

Can anyone help me with advice or a template etc


Thank you

If Equita know your car registration do not park it anywhere near your house as they may seize it. Do not answer the door to anyone, if you have to answer the door, make sure you have a security chain on. If the baillif tries to force the door open with his foot, then hit it with an instument (that fell off the shelf). If he forces the door then that is breaking and entering.


I was a certificated bailiff and was often reffered to as the nicest bailiff in Britain. I believed there are two sides to every story and whatever the outcome always got my fee. I also had a run in with JBW (see the director of that company on the BBC programme 'Beat the Bailiffs' ), After a while they gave up as I was never at home, and my neighbours never advised that I lived at the address. That said, on the two occasions that I have had a problem with a council, I have alway's proved that they were in the wrong.


I am of the belief that Equita do not turn up but the majority of the cases are for paperwork only. The reason that I say this is that my address is a secure property. After trawling through four weeks of cctv footage I have only noted the postman, charity clothes collector, neighbour and free paper person delivering. I also have three eagle eyed neighbours who have not seen a visitor to the address.


In conclusion, If Equita claim to have visited your address ask them to confirm the date and time of vists. I have got extremely stressed over these jumped up little ****es and it is not worth it,



If you need further help please feel free to contact me.


Kind regards,

Just a quick update as Iv spent the evening searching for letters etc and Iv found the original Charge certificate from Haringey which states that the PCN was issued in May 07 and thier Charge certificate was sent to me in August 07.


I didnt hear anymore until they wrote to me in August/Sept 2008, stating that I had an unpaid PCN, which I challanged and asked them to provide evidence. No response and passed to Equita.


Unless there is a timelimit for action to be taken by the council I guess Im stuffed and will have to liaise with the wolves of Equita.....:mad:

Stick your car on some private land and get some show plates on it - e.g. number plates that are not yours - give you more time incase they try to seize your vehicle.


Don't use false plates on the public road though - I know it goes without saying but I thought that I had better mention it.
