hi all i have just joined and am looking for some advice.

 

It might be a little long winded just for a simple answer.

 

I recently separated from the wife and moved to a flat which has private parking enforcement in Rushden Northants.

 

I got 2 parking charges from County Parking Enforcement Agency.

 

I showed these to my letting agent who said ignore and who took a photo copy to be sent off to the landlord to be quashed.

This was 5th and 6th of Nov last year.

 

In Jan this year i got letters from them saying that i had failed to pay

so the charges had gone up from 50quid each to 100.

 

I again took these letters to letting agent who did the same as previous and said dont worry.

 

Now i have just got a threatening letter from Debt Recovery Plus Ltd who have added another 50 quid on top

saying if they dont receive payment or a proposal for payment then the matter may be passed to the landholders solicitor to commence county court proceedings.

 

County Parking took over managing the car park the month i moved in and on one of their signs it says that car must be parked in assigned bays within the lines.

Trouble is their are no lines as they've faded away, just numbers which are quite faded.

 

Add to this they sent me a map of the car park with new numbers or their map that dont correlate with the numbers that are painted onto the car park.

 

Should i send em a snotty letter or just carry on ignoring them.

 

The ex is getting a bit stressed as my car was still registered to her address at the time so she gets all the mail.

 

One thing that really gripes me is i have 2 car passes now and one is for a garage that only i have the key for

so how could i possibly need their permission ie a pass to park in it....grrr.

 

Advice please..

 

.as it stands i am gonna photograph their sign tomorrow and take a couple of pics of the car park showing no lines

and the numbers which dont match theirs just in case someone decides to do a paint job.

Have a read around the forum - this is a private parking company so these are NOT fines, and are generally NOT legally enforceable. They exist solely for profit and their 'Parking Charges' represent speculative invoices - it matters not how much they add in fees of increase the 'debt'. Continue to ignore them and they will eventually give up.

 

If the pressure gets too much to bear, then send a simple letter stating that County Parking should refer back to the landlord on whose behalf they operate as it has been agreed that the charges were issued in error and that no further correspondence will be entered into.

Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
