    • I was obviously clutching at straws on that one! I was putting the repeal together with the information below and considering that as I hadn't heard from the council for over 3 years that this might mean the charge / restriction was not now being pursued, particularly as the SAR disclosure did not show any entry for me from the Finance Dept. I fear I'm back to square one now.   After 1 April 2015 a Local Authority will only be able to recover unpaid care home fees by securing a judgment debt either in the County Court or the High Court (s69(1) of the Act).and The Act increases the time limit for the recovery of a debt comprising of unpaid care home fees from three years to six years from the date the sum becomes due      
    • Absolutely: The Homicide Act was repealed. So, after that they could no longer charge people for murder under the Homicide Act. (Not the greatest of examples, I accept, given murderers just get charged with murder being against the common law- but my point is:)   You can no longer be charged with Murder contrary to the homicide act. That doesn’t mean that those serving sentences for murder contrary to the Homicide Act, having been found guilty, had to be released the day the law was repealed.   Charges / restrictions couldn’t be placed under the repealed legislation (without e.g. a CCJ) once the Act was repealed. The repeal doesn’t mean existing charges / restrictions in force at the day of repeal have to be removed.
    • BazzaS Ah - now that complicates things - just when I thought I'd got my head round it!   I did think b] might be a source of worry for the purchaser. They have just instructed their solicitor yesterday but I haven't found one yet, preliminary enquiries didn't result in any clarity on the questions I posed. a] where do I find a CS who understands this and can share their knowledge with the buyer's CS?   I've no idea what the outstanding balance is as the council has not been in touch. I appealed many years ago and it wasn't resolved. I did do a SAR with the council and nothing came back from the Finance dept. so I was hoping my appeal had been accepted and the debt 'wiped' but they hadn't bothered to contact me. There were lots of changes up to the new Care Act 2014 which came into force on 01.04.15    Repeal: I was relying on the meaning below? Hence again I thought that's why the council hadn't pursued the debt and was just leaving the CO [or restriction] on the register to keep me on my toes!   If a government repeals a law, it causes that law no longer to have any legal force.   Thanks
    • The issue is 2-fold (both related to perceived risk, in a very risk-averse profession): a) will you find a conveyancer who will agree and follow that they needn't worry, and just notify once sold, and b) buyer's wil be put off if their conveyancer says "well, there is a risk".....   The combination of these may be that unless you get very lucky, you'll only get interest in a sale if an undertaking to settle the outstanding sum is made.   As for the repeal : I imaging that it will prevent new charges / restrictions from when it came into force, not revoke pre-existing ones.
    • I have held a Credit Card with Natwest for over 30 years and in the last 6 months or so, I have not used it.     The card is due to expire in a couple of months and I  have had a letter asking whether I still needed a Credit Card.  And that if I did not contact them within a month, they would close the account.  In order to keep the account, apparently I have to phone them to ask them to issue another card on the expiry of the current one .   I have always maintained a Credit Card, just in case of emergencies and if you hire a car for example, they often want details of a Credit Card.   Is this a new policy by Banks ?  First time Natwest have done this.   I have had zero balances near to card expiry dates before and they have not done this.   And this is a warning note to others, that you should never ignore letters from your Bank, thinking it is just advertising information on their services.  Otherwise you may find that the Credit Card  account you thought that you  had, has been cancelled.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Right, woke up this morning to find a notice on the door mat to say the car had been clamped due to an unpaid parking fine. Rang the number on the notice to ask whats going on, to be told it relates to a parking ticket issued on 23/9/08, and that I have been written to about it, both by Newlyn and council. Having moved house twice since last september, and honestly not receiving anything to do with said parking fine, what can I do? According to the baliff, its been to court and Newlyn have written, but I honestly have not received anything. The car is parked on a private drive, and belongs to finance company, but mr baliff says that doesn't matter, as he's working for 'the courts' he can do as he pleases and take it anyway.

I offered to pay in installments, both me and gf on benefit, with baby on way in august and 3 other kids, but he wouldn't hear of it, had to be the whole £450.

So, now I've got the family transport stuck outside with a clamp on, a fine that I've heard nothing about until now and no idea what to do.

Just a quick one, notice thru the door has the wrong name on it, 1st 5 letters of surname are the same, but last bit is wrong, says ridge, not dice. They've clamped my car and its the name they've put on the clamping notice.

On line search to check if a Bailiff is Certificated is the baillif certifacated

 

If you do not know anything about this PCN then it is VERY LIKELY that this PCN and all styatutory notices had been sent to a previous address or been wrongly addressed.

 

In the first instance you need to contact the Traffic Enforcement Centre on 08457 045 007 for details of the Warrant of Execution and confirmation of the address of the Warrant. HOWEVER....you will need the PCN number. This will start with 2 letters followed by 8 numbers.

 

If you did not receive the PCN or Notice to owner then you will need to file an Out of Time late Statutory Declaration. The Traffic Enforcement centre will provide a copy to you.

This is VERY SIMPLE.

 

You need to file an Out of Time late Stautory declaration with the Traffic Enforcement Centre.

You will need to IMMEDIATELY telephone TEc on 08457 045 007 and they will e-mail the form to you. You will need the PCN number to hand.

 

PS: The telephone line gets VERY busy....

 

MOST bailiff's will REMOVE the clamp once advised of the Out of Time.

 

I would suggest contacting the bailiff straight away to ask him for the address on the Warrant. If this does show you new address, then please do ask TEC to confirm where the ORIGINAL notices had been sent.

Right, have spoken to boro council, and newlyn, before I read the replies. All notices and letters were sent to a previous address, where I left in April 08. The Address the baliff gave me was the address the letters had been sent to.

Ministry of Justice Public Register of Bailiffs on 020 3334 6355

 

phone to confirm that they are not bailiffs

 

then phone the council and inform them that MR XXXX and MR xxxx who clamped your car are not certificated bailiffs

 

Certificated bailiffs — enforce a variety of debts on behalf of organisations such as local authorities. They can seize and sell your goods to cover the amount of the debt you owe. They also hold a certificate, which enables them, and them alone, to levy distress for rent, road traffic debts, council tax and non-domestic rates.

Thanks to Tomtubby's invaluable help, the clamp is now off and the balliff's have left. Forms have been faxed and posted to the TEC, and what started out as a nightmare this morning has now been made a lot better, thanks to Tomtubby.

I am glad that I could be of help and that commonsense has prevailed in that the bailiff has now removed the clamp.

Incompetence is allowed - if you owed someone for something, and the clamping itself is legitimate, then you might complain about it's accuracy of name - but not the fact that you are the debtor otherwise identified.

Sorry to drag this back up again, something been bugging me. After they clamped the car, a notice was stuck to the side window stating the obvious, that the car had been clamped, and that any damage caused to the clamp or any attempt to remove it would be illegal (or words to that effect). I was under the impression that damage to it was not allowed, but there was nothing to stop me removing it as long as I didnt damage it? Or could I have taken the grinder to it? :-) Also, this may be a stupid question, but are there any rules etc regarding how said clamp is attached to a vehicle? As in should it be just to the wheel, or is it ok for the chain to be wrapped around the driveshaft and wishbone?

Finally, their van had 2 cameras attached to the outside, pointing at either side kerb, which turned out to be Anpr cameras. Any problems with that?

Recieved 3 letters today from Newlyn, regarding outstanding parking fines. Now, according to Newlyn, who clamped my car on Tuesday, these letters had been sent to me previously. Car was clamped on 28th, letters are dated 29th. Thanks to Tomtubby's help, 3 x stat decs were filed on tuesday so what do I do about these letters, as they're headed as FINAL NOTICE, BALLIFF REMOVAL, and not to ignore them. The charges are as follows, £310.33, £276.88 and £558.73. Now on tuesday, I was told the total they were collecting was £692, now its over £1k. It just seems strange that they were told, and they confirmed, that letters had been sent to an old address hence stat dec, now these 'new' letters turn up, am I likely to be graced with a return visit from them and my car clamped again, as they seem to be threatening. What do I do? Do I need to contact them to tell them again that stat dec has been filed? Or is it safe to ignore them and wait to hear from Tec/council?

The Traffic Enforcment Centre would have already advised the local authority that Out of times had been received and they in turn would have advised Newlyn.

 

If not.....they would have already been back to take the car!!

 

To be certain though you should ring TEC on 98457 045 007 for confirmation.

 

 

PS: Write to Newlyn for a full and detailed freakdown of the fees and charges.

You have filed Ot of Time stat Decs and therefore you will need to await the outcome and the cases are on hold.

 

In the meantime you now have the opportunity to write to the bailiff co to request a copy of the screen shot of your account as you have serious concerns as to the level of charges applied to your account.

 

You need to mark your letter....SUBJECT ACCESS REQUEST

Is that the same as a normal Sar, ie, costs £10?

Would just like to say make sure you get the FULL screen shot, I asked chandlers for this 5 tmes and all I got sent twice was a break down of charges. It wasnt until I got the defence from the bailiff that I saw her screen shot was a lot more detailed than mine, had notes of the conversations we aledgedly had on it !! Good Luck :)

Right, last year i managed to get 4 council pcn's over a 3 month period. Totally forgot about them until woke up 1 morning to find car clamped and balliffs outside. After making stat dec now have until 3rd september to pay. Before I go ahead and just pay up, can I request to see any evidence, photo's etc relating to the tickets? Its Ipswich Borough Council if thats any help, have seen them taking photo's when issuing tickets so I assume there's photo's to go with my tickets.

You can request it, and they'll probably send it to you. It won't affect the position you're in though.

I appealed 3 of the 4 tickets, 2 of parked on single yellow line, 1 of failing to display ticket. The fail to display appeal was accepted and penalty overturned, and 1 of the single yellows overturned. I'd queried the fact that the single yellow line looked a bit iffy and that there was no signage in the vicinity, which they accepted and agreed that the signage is missing from that area. Bearing in mind that the ticket was recieved last year, and other people may have been ticketed for same 'offence', and the situation with sign still hasn't been remedied.

Probably the lack of repair/signage is a result of the parking appeals team being seperate from the traffic/highways maintenance team (whatever they're called). It's unlikely they routinely swap information.

 

If you feel public spirited, phone them or write to them directly at the council address and request they undertake repairs. If not, it will likely stay that way until someone else gets on their case.
