    • OK.  So you lent your car to a friend in 2019 and he racked up three parking tickets that he tells you he didn't know anything about(!).  You were the registered keeper (RK) at the time at your family address, but you got chucked out and could not change your RK address with DVLA because you were homeless.  You knew nothing about the parking tickets and enforcement action until you got a bailiffs' letter passed on to you.  You made an Out of Time (OOT) application in respect of one PCN but Birmingham CC objected to it and the traffic court rejected your application.  A solicitor helped you make OOTs in respect of the other two PCNs but you don't yet know the outcome of those two applications.   Is that the situation you are in?   dx100uk thinks you can resubmit the application saying your friend was the driver.  I don't think saying that will help as the driver is irrelevant.  It's the owner who is liable to pay the charge and that is the RK (unless the RK is a car hire firm).  I assume you are not a car hire firm so you are stuck with the liability, not the driver.   Whether you actually can resubmit an OOT once one has been rejected I do not know, but why not try.  What did the solicitor put on the applications they helped you with?  Did you not ask their advice about the rejected application while you were with them?  I think you would have to say something to the effect that you never received any paperwork in relation to the PCNs because you had been chucked out of your home and because you were homeless you did not update your address at DVLA.  That is the truth isn't it?  You don't want to lie on the application.   To me that's a good reason for you not doing anything about the PCNs, but I suspect that Birmingham CC will object again and that the traffic court will reject again.  And, as I said above, I don't even know if you can submit a second OOT application in respect of a PCN if the first has been rejected.   So it looks to me like you might be a bit stuck.   Unless dx100uk, or spaceman61, or another poster with expertise in local authority PCNs comes along I'm not sure what you do.   If you get no more helpful suggestions here you could try on National Consumer Service.  If you do go there, do not register with a hotmail address.  You will also need to provide them with a timeline of everything for all the documents you actually have, and you will need all the facts and dates etc at your fingertips.  And make sure they are accurate.   http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showforum=30   And get your friend to contribute to paying off the PCNs.  Do you believe he really knew nothing about them?

    • Hi Charlie and welcome to CAG   As an Executor, you have a duty to insure the property and tell the currect insurer of the passing of the deceased.   Most insurers will refuse normal contents cover on a house left unoccupied beyond 60 days. So, unoccupied, the home will not be insured against break-in damage, theft, flood, accidental damage, etc.   You may be able to obtain FLEE insurance covering only Fire, Lightening, Explosion and Earthquake. It may cost more than usual contents cover  because the home is unoccupied, even though the level/amount of cover is less than for an occupied home.   As said here already, an Executor would be wise (or indeed have a duty) to remove valuables from the home if you have somewhere safer to store them pending Probate, distribution, sale, etc.   I hope if you can explain the insurance risks to YB and assure him that you are not taking items just for your own benefit, he may see sense.   Please keep us updated ............

Hi

 

Back in June 2012 my father, who is registered disabled, received a parking ticket through the post from the above company. This was the first he had heard of it and there was no yellow ticket left on car. I didnt reply and followed advice from here but did report them to a parking assciation whom I thought was a regulatory body - and received a very rude reply from them saying my father had better pay up or be taken to court. I didnt reply and havent heard anything about it since ..... until today when a notice for £100 now and threatening further action. My dad has recently come out of heart surgery (not an excuse or a sob story) and really is getting worried about this - any advice on what I should do?? Thanks

Hi Nat

 

with regards to the ticket you dont need to do anything what so ever, you can also ignore all future letters from so call debt collector and fake solicitors, even when they use lots of red ink

 

Could you copy and paste on to here what the BPA said to you please?, dont worry you wont get taken to court

As it was back in June and did not hear anything else from them I do not have the exact wording. I explained that my dad was indeed registered disabled and must have forgotten to put the badge up but that I was willing to send proof of badge etc etc. They told me very rudely that they had 'evidence' that a yellow ticket was indeed put on the car and that the badge was not displayed. I asked them for their 'evidence' and they emailed pics from NGP showing no badge but no yellow ticket stuck on car either (as it wasnt!) My dad is now wanting to pay this £100 to stop the stress but I am telling him not to still. Is there anyway I can report them for causing this stress to my ill dad when they have no legal right to? Thanks Nat

Was your dad parked on a private car park? The disabled bays on private car parks are just lines on the ground, the blue badge scheme only applies to council parking spaces. It may be bad manners to park in a disabled spot on a private car park without displaying a blue badge, but no law has been broken.

Why would you dad want to pay £100 just to stop a few harmless letters coming through the post

 

They wont take you to court

 

They wont and cant send anyone round. Its just like dealing with other junk mail. Ask him would he pay to stop other junk mail. What do you normally do with junk mail

 

you can find all the letters they send out on the money saving expert forum

 

When they cant and wont do anything the cant be any stress....

The new rules give the PPC the 'power to persue the registered keeper' if a speculative invoice containing unenforceable penalty clauses is unpaid. But it is still a speculative invoice containing unenforceable penalty clauses, no matter who is 'liable' for it.

 

The new law doesn't remove the previous hurdles for the PPC around contract law, penalty clauses, ownership of the land, ability to contract with motorists on land they have no interest in and an inability to proove what loss if any was suffered. It doesn't change anything as I see it.

 

Read VCS v Ibbotson and HMRC v VCS.

It might also be a good ides to complain to the retail park or the shops that you visited stating that you are totaly disgusted in the way that their agents are treating and harrassing your disabled dad!

natalie000 - I had numerous threats from New Generation Parking for Parking in a car park at Talbot Green in South Wales, the last one telling me telling me 'court Action' was pending. In fact its apparently still pending - 5 years later !! Something tells me they've given up a long time ago ! - This company are the same as all the rest - spineless and toothless. I replied to their silly threats telling them where to go but I would now advise you to heed the advice on here and simply do nothing - Let your father know about this and assure him that nothing will happen if he doesn't pay and they will give up fairly quickly. I am also familiar with this car park at Cardiff Bay as I visit often and know that New Generation have given up with other people who've had tickets there.
