I was issued a parking ticket in July 2009, I got back to my car, 4 mins late however realise that the ticket stands, though I drove off before attendant affixed ticket to the car, I was under impression that if it was affixed it didn't stand, clearly misguided assumption. I then moved address, but updated my vehicle docs, I was written to advise of the parking fine however due to them initially contacting my previous address had missed opportunity for the 50% reduction. I wrote accepting the fine but asking if they would consider the reduction due to circs (moving address), they agreed to this. I forwarded a cheque which appears to have gone astray. Today I have had bailiffs at my door from Jacobs Bailiffs, with a notice saying that they will remove property within 24 hours if I don't pay £220. They state that they have written previously however I definitely have received no correspondence from them. I have asked for a breakdown of the figure and they aren't forthcoming with the info. I haven't let them in and have no intention of doing so however wondered what powers they have, also all the furnishings in my house are my new partners who sold up and moved in with me some weeks ago. I can only work out that £75 would be the parking fee, they say there is also a set charge of £90???? I have tried to speak to my local council who say that it is all down to the bailiffs now and nothing to do with them!! Anyone any advice I would be most grateful?

Welcome to The Consumer Action Group.



I am just letting you know that as you haven't had any replies to your post yet, it might be better if you post your message again in an appropriate sub-forum. You will get lots of help there.


Also take some time to read around the forum and get used to the layout. It is a big forum and takes a lot of getting used to.



Once you start to find your way, you will soon realise that it is fairly easy to get round and to get the help you need.


It can be bit confusing at first.

Please be advised that my time will be limited for the next few weeks.Thanks for your understanding.
