Im not sure it would be a breach as they had the right to contact DVLA for any breach including failure to input full registration. They however failed to use the correct reason for breach on the NTK letter.
I agree the sign is ambiguous, and I think you will probably win this, if you fight it all the way. (That's 'probably'!)
The sign must state the hours of no parking, and must be clear. So, the yellow sign says "No stopping 10 - 5am". Logically, that can't be 10am - 5am. So it must be 10pm - 5am. And then logically, it follows on, that you can stop to load after 5am, until 10am. If it means something other than that, it isn't clear.
I don't read any restriction after 10am - which is itself odd, but you have 14 days to decide what to do, so I would start by contacting the Council and asking for a copy of the Parking Order for that location. This will tell you what the true restriction is, and I would not be surprised if it's 10am - 5pm - in which case, the sign is completely faulty and you should win.
In any case, you can make formal representations once the Notice to Owner is issued, and this can be followed by adjudication.
Incidentally, what was the contravention and contravention code printed on the PCN?
The vehicle loses power and starts juddering while being driven.
It was diagnosed as the EGR valve. This was repaired. The fault has re-occurred.
(Is this enough info?)
I will include offer for him to inspect.
Thanks for the heads up.
I have use of another vehicle. This one has been off the road since 19/07/2019 and I've no intention of using it.
They have sent all the paperwork ie ntk up to lbc with an incorrect spelling of my name. Looks like the person I bought the car off spelled incorrectly hence dvla have an incorrect spelling but I never clicked on beforehand. Firstly I will need to find the log book and contact dvla of the correct spelling. What does this mean for me as far as VCS are concerned? Should I still send the snotty letter?
I would certainly not advise you to use the vehicle on a day-to-day basis. The situation would become extremely complicated in the event of an accident or a vehicle theft or something. These risks are even present if you are merely using the vehicle to take to a repairer and so it would not be advisable there either. In the circumstances it might be better to rely simply on the findings that have been made so far by garages and to leave it there. That seems to me to be a reasonable approach. You could invite elite to inspect the vehicle and in fact you should make that very clear in your letter so that you can demonstrate that you have attempted to be open and cooperative in any way.
I think it would be helpful if you posted a bullet point chronology of the defects which have now been identified.
By the way, is now scheduled to be posted within the next two or three hours and it will include the tweet handle of Elite so that they will now see that this is being discussed on an open forum.
Don't touch them owe me £500 since January 2019 make excuse after excuse. Seem they always have software problems sending money out. Keep saying they will call back or email nothing been chasing it now for 6 mths the phone staff always have the same banter we will chase it up and get back to you then nothing!
