DCBL advice? Letter of Claim

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me advice on this letter?

It doesn't have any information on from when it was from.


I remember my wife getting a charge for her permit at work not being correctly shown a long time ago and we ignored it, but this has been sent today.

Defend the claim using MCOL. The team will be along soon with further advice, meanwhile can you get pictures of the workplace car park and any signage from the Parking Cowboy?

The wife works for a car insurance company and they have a private car park, which you need a permit for. We had one in the window, but it had slid slightly down the dash, hence the fine. On the first letter from northern parking it has a picture of our car in the bay. But not of the permit.

court forms come from the court not some powerless tinpot dca.


they are not bailiffs in this instance

zero legal powers

zero legal authority to instigate any court claim


only ne parking can do that.

I don't have access to a computer. Just a smart phone.


No she hasn't moved.


And I I can't link the latest letter which I have put up to the original fine, because it won't match the reference number.


The rest of the paper work is asking for salary and if I own a home etc.

Has your wife not spoken to her boss about this. Her Company should be able to get it cancelled since they know she has a genuine permit and that permit outranks any halfwit parking company who thinks they can increase a £100 parking ticket to an outrageous £482. Where do they live-Cloud Cuckoo land? And DCBL going along with it. I hope no one ever needs a litigation solicitor that badly that they use DCBL. That letter is a complete joke even excluding their poor grammar and misspelling.


IF some one has a permit to park then they have not entered into a contract with NPS. And as such there is absolutely no necessity to pay a brass farthing [whatever that is] at any time far less than within 30 days. Muppets.






And relax, if you follow the excellent instructions you will get on this site you will pay nothing because even if you had been the driver you would still owe nothing.

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

    • I am new here but very glad to find my way here and would welcome any input.
      i purchased a brand new campervan conversion from Hillside Leisure (175 miles from our home) on July 26th for £31,000 and, within 48 hours, during a storm, the alarm began to sound incessantly. We could not get it to stop, even after trying everything listed in the manual. We phoned Hillside on Saturday July 28th around 2.00pm. The young man who answered the phone said he would seek the advice of their technician and call us back, which he did. The technician told us that they, Hillside, couldn’t help, but that we should take the van to Nissan (the van is a Nissan) as the fault would lie with one of their components.
