Hello,

 

I don't know if any one can give me any advice. Last week a bailiff from the Marston Group turned up at the house - I was away with work; my wife answered the door - he demanded payment of £875 or the car would be towed away and subsequently clamped the car.

 

My wife was desperately trying to get hold of me - but I was in meetings, so couldn't speak to her. She was trying to get our six year old and four year old ready for school - and was exceptionally upset by their intimidating, aggressive behaviour, under this duress she paid.

 

We had no idea where the fine came from - until I investigated, it was a PCN from a London Borough. We moved house over a year and a half ago and the authority / Bailiff had sent the letters to our old address - now I had registered my driving license to the new address but not the car with the DVLA. Therefore, all info had been sent to our old address.

 

Do I have a legal leg to stand on as the bailiff's warrant was for our old address, they said it was my legal duty to register the car to the new address. I asked how they got our new address - they said they drove around the town and happened to come across my car - yeah right.

 

As you might understand, I feel like we've been absolutely screwed over - if I had been around it might have been a different story - however, to intimidate a woman with a 6 and a 4 year is completely out of order.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Chris

You haven't said whether payment was made or not. £875 is a simply astonishing amount for just one PCN. Did you receive a breakdown.
