Hello, Im a new user and would really appreciate some help....

 

I received a PCN October 2012 which I paid by cheque. It appears this was never received and because I did not receive reminder letters (TEC say they were posted but I did not receive any despite their records of my address being correct) the case was passed to Equita Bailiffs.

 

I received a letter from Equita on 11/4/13 which I was slow to respond to as I did not realise the urgency. This resulted in a Bailiff Removal letter arriving, hand delivered after the bailiff called and the house was empty. It stated they called to execute a warrant issued by Northampton County Court. I called them and was gobsmacked to hear there was a bill of about £370 as they had now visited my house which had increased the charges.

 

I have since filed an OOT witness statement which was declined, I received the letter rejecting it, which was dated 16/5/13. It arrived a few days after it was dated.

 

It now seems that an N244 is the best option but even with the guidance notes I am confused about how to complete it and I am nervous that time is ticking. Equita tell me the case is on hold until 4/6/13. I intended to call citizens advice but their limited opening hours have made this difficult.

 

I would appreciate any advice you may be able to give me. Thank you

 

PS apologies for not posting in a specific forum but new to all this and not sure how to get to most appopriate one.

The problem you have is that you knew you had a ticket, paid it but never checked to see it was cashed, therefore I think you will be wasting your money challenging it - £80 for a Hearing or £40 without. I would be more inclined to challenge the Bailiff fees and pay what is due. £370 of course will be far too much and they will more than likely be including fictious fees.

 

From what I understand the costs so far should be:

a - whatever the original ticket cost was

b - a letter fee of £11-20 +VAT

c - a visit fee which should be probably 28% of what you owe

 

Here's an example of what to send for their breakdown of fees. Send initially by email - tonight - followed by a copy in the post - tomorrow.

 

"From:

To:

Acme Bailiff Co

Bailiff House

 

Ref: Account No: 123456

 

Dear Sir

 

With reference to the above account, Can you please provide me with a breakdown of the charges.

 

This includes:

a - the time & date of any Bailiff action that incurred a Fee.

b - the reason for the fee.

c - the name(s) of the Bailiff(s) that attended on each occasion a Fee was charged.

d - the name(s) of the Court(s) the Bailiff(s) was/were Certificated at.

e - the date of the Certification.

 

This is not a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act S7 1998 so does not incur a fee of £10. You are obliged to provide this information.

 

I require this information within 14 days.

 

Yours faithfully
