I'm looking for some help.


I have an outstanding parking ticket notice from October last year.


I didn't have the money to pay so stuck my head in the sand and ignored it.


Got a letter through saying a bailiff had been to my house and that I needed to pay by the next day or would take my goods.


Rang the bailiff and

said I don't have the money to pay it

can you give me a week to find it which he did.


After reading through lots of things

im thinking I shouldn't of done this.


the original charge is £200 but

the bailiff has now added charges of £300 and

wants £500 from me by Tuesday.


Can I refuse to pay those charges as they are excessive?


How would I go about doing this?


Should I pay the ticket charge straight to the council?


And finally im afraid they will take my car


the car is in my name but is on finance

which is in my mums name are they legally allowed to take it?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks in advance.

For anyone else reading your question, I would URGE motorists to make sure that they pay their tickets at the initial stage because from 6th April the fees that the bailiff can LEGALLY charge will soar and it is going to be a case that cars will be taken by bailiffs at a level never witnessed before.


You say that you received a letter....was this by post or hand delivered? (this is to ascertain whether the bailiff made an actual visit or not).


You say that the car is on finance. In MOST cases this will mean that the car is exempt.


The problem that you may have is that the bailiff will not know that the car is not yours and may attend to seize it. It is vital that you make the company aware that the car is hers and that you are merely the keeper.


Which bailiff company is this?

Hi sorry for my delayed reply.


It is merton council bailiff services. The letter was hand delivered I'm assuming as that's what was stated on it but I was home all day and didn't actually hear anyone knocking.


I have been trying to get the money together but have been unable to. I will call them and tell then the car is on finance and try and work something out but I have a feeling this wont go in my favour.
