PCN appeal won-bailiffs at the door

Recommended Posts



Wonder if someone can help me out.


Received a pcn beginning of last year,

appealed it and won it,


the whole appeal went on for about 6 months as council rejected the appeal and had to go through adjudicator.


During the whole appeal process i paid for the penalty, just to be on the safe side in case ill lose the appeal.


Council refunded the fine shortly after the case was won and that was that.


Now few weeks ago received a letter from bailiff saying that i owe money for the same pcn (reference numbers match),

didn't contact anyone hoping it was an error somewhere,


but last week received another letter saying that without any further notice the goods will be removed upon his next visit.


I know that most probably next time bailiff arrives and if i would show the letter they would go away,

but i am extremely angry with Newham council from before and this is more like personal issue to me!


And i would like to teach them lesson!


Please advise on how to escalate the best plan of actions.


Or should i just contact Newham and get them to call their dogs off?


Thanks for your help

contact council as a formal complaint always better to keep a paper trail


contact your local MP


if council do nothing about it contact local government ombudsmen


bailiffs have very little powers to do anything show him the letter,if he can read he should go,he has no right to be on your property as nothing to collect

don't ask him to leave tell him to

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

      Do you have a mortage arears claim to make? Then post your story on the forum here

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
