I recieved a parking fine from a local council for £80. Unfortunetely I did not pay it

 

I recieved two or three letters from a certified baliff and a visit by a certified baliff.

 

I was charged £326.33.

 

In other words £246.33 was levied for two or three letters and one visit

I feel that it is an excessive charge.

Are there any guidelines for the amount they charge. Do I have any redress.

 

Thanks for your help

Bailiffs charge for the time they spend organising and actually visiting your property, plus any research needed etc. Two people, half a morning, one vehicle etc etc. £200 ish seems reasonable to me.

It is also to encourage people to pay BEFORE it gets to that stage!

Do you never feel it would be worth addressing the PCN after it was received :confused:

Unfortunately baliffs fees are expensive that is why its always better to sort things out before they get involved. I assume you paid it if not do so ASAP as it will only increase further.

there are fixed (capped) amounts that they should charge for letters and visits. I don't have a link but I bet they are on here somewhere.

The sixth post down I think

 

However I was looking for a little more info.

 

From looking at various sources I think I have been overcharged by £150

 

It was on a single visit by a single person, who simply dropped a warning letter off and did not enter the premises
