Hi everyone

 

my sister got a letter on the 6th of feb saying she owes £173 for a parking ticket that happened in October last year.

 

It says a warrant has been put though from the courts but my sister hasn’t received any other letters about this.

 

This is the first she’s heard of the parking ticket.

 

With her being on benefits and not having the money to pay I was thinking of sending a n245 form but don’t no what court to send it too.

 

Ill upload a copy of the letter.

 

Any help really appreciate.

 

Thanks

Andrew

Looks like a Bus Lane Contravention,

probably captured by a camera so a Council ticket that has now been handed to Jacobs to Enforce,

they have added the £75 Compliance Fee,

and if they visit it will add the £235 Enforcement fee also significantly increasing the debt.

 

Might be better to contact Jacobs and arrange a payment plan before they call.

jacobs will clamp any motor vehicle outside the premises if they see one so keep any car, motorcycle and anything of value outside away.

 

Tell Jacobs the financial aspect as well.

Don't think there is any other way to challenge the Penalty

it's not like a PPC Invoice

 

A plan before they knock and add £235 is a good move.

Others might be able to offer alternative advice.

Might be worth asking to see any images showing the contravention to make sure correct VRM was recorded,

even Bus Lane cameras and Council CCTV images are sometimes dodgy like PPC cheapo ANPR.

and confuse digits 1 or I, 0 and O

Has she moved lately as there is a chance all notifications have been sent to an old address. The offence occurred May 25 2018. Form N245 is of no use in this instance.

She hasn’t moved address since November 2017 and only received this in the post.

She’s had no chance to fight or pay the original fee.

She’s also mentally ill so don’t think she could deal with talking to the horrible people at Jacobs.

 

We have my car, my brothers and my sisters car parked on the front.

Surely if they try and take mine or my brothers we could sue them.

 

Could an email or letter work to explain the situation with them?

I can’t see how it can stand if nothing been sent but an enforcement letter

 

would I be able to talk on her behalf if we have to call Jacobs or is there no other way but my sister needing to talk to them?

 

Thanks

Andrew

OK she moved 2017 but did she change the address on the V5 for the car. If so then you need to contact the Council to see what address they have been sending all communication to. At present the Bailiffs have done very little wrong.

 

You say she is mentally ill - is it possible you could expand on this as there may be a possibility she could be treated as vulnerable?

also shes currently on PIP and esa because of her mental illness.

she gets panic attacks and can't deal with meeting new people.

Does she not qualify for being classed as vulnerable?

 

if it helps she was also admitted to a mental hospital for about a month last year when she had a breakdown

 

Just managed to speak to my sister her v5 had her old address on it and she updated it in Jan 2019.

I guess that's why she got this letter and nothing else.

 

I'm guessing for a better word she's done now then?

its her fault shes had no chance to pay it because she didn't update her address when she moved.

But that's because she wasn't all there when we moved she had only just come out the metal hospital.

 

Is there anyway that can be used as a reason for not having the right address so the debt can be sent back to the council and she could set up something with them.

Because she can just about live on what she has now with just having benefits.

 

Thanks

Andrew

She may be able to make an Out of Time Application to the Traffic Enforcement Centre but I am no expert on this, but will ask someone else to have a look.

If Bailiff Advice looks in they will be able to advise on an Out of Time, if it is accepted, the Penalty reverts back to the original amount and all bailiff fees are removed, allowing her to pay or contest.

 

I would definitely move all cars away from the property or outside it, Jacobs don't care whose car they grab, they have form for taking third party vehicles.

how would I go about contacting bailiff advice or applying for and out of time app for my sister? I'm also thinking what to do about contacting Jacobs about the situation and stopping them coming round. Because me and my brother work and are out of the house most of the day so my sister would be by herself.

 

Thanks

I am sorry for not visiting sooner but I was attending a conference all day.

 

As your sister had not received any of the previous notices from Manchester City Council, she has been disadvantaged in two ways. Firsty, she has been denied the opportunity to pay the penalty at the earlier 50% discounted rate, and secondly, she has lost the opportunity to appeal the ticket.

 

To correct this, the law provides that she can request that the debt be cancelled. This is done by submitting what is called an Out of Time statutory declaration. If accepted, the debt (including bailiff fees) will be cancelled. The council will then issue a fresh Penalty Charge Notice to your sister. She will then be able to pay at the earlier discounted rate.

 

The problem facing your sister is one of timing. As this debt relates to a bus lane contravention, she would need to submit an out of time statutory declaration (Form PE2 and PE3) as opposed to the much simpler Out of Time witness statement.

 

The downside to the stat secs forms is that she would need to print the forms off and take them to a solicitor to get her signature witnessed. The forms would then need to be scanned into your computer and EMAILED to the Traffic Enforcement Centre by the 'cut off' time of 4pm on Monday. All bailiff Enforcement would then be placed 'on hold' first thing Tuesday morning. The 'hold' would be in place for around 4 weeks waiting for a decision to be made.

 

I notice from the letter that the cut off time to make payment to Jacobs is 6pm on Monday.

Hi bailiff advice

 

How would she go about getting it witnessed by a solicitor? She doesn’t have any money for one and where could I find the forms she needs to fill out.

 

Thank you very much for your advice

Hi how would I go about booking an appointment to get the docs witnessed?

 

I’ve looked at the other post that was put up and it said you can do it at the court but not sure what court to go to or how to get an appointment set up for my sister before the 6pm Monday deadline.

 

Thanks

Andrew

"This declaration must be sworn before a Commissioner for Oaths (e.g. a Solicitor), a Justice of the Peace (at any Magistrates Court) or an officer of your local county court before sending the declaration to the Traffic Enforcement Centre at the above address. You may have to pay a fee. Please complete this form in BLOCK CAPITALS and in black ink."

 

The abve is taken from the PE2 Form and from memory for Magistrates or County Court you can just walk in and this costs nothing, only at a solicitors may you be asked to pay - £5 or £10. When done copy the form - scan or photo & email to TEC.

The problem facing your sister is one of time. The earliest that she could get the forms witnessed is Monday. Assuming that you manages to get the forms witnessed and scanned over to the Traffic Enforcement Centre by their 'cut off' time of 4pm, then bailiff enforcement would be placed 'on hold' for approx 4 weeks from mid morning Tuesday. This time period would mean that she would have lost the opportunity to enter into a payment arrangement with Jacobs (the cut off time is 6pm Monday).

 

If you sister fails to get a payment arrangement in place with Jacobs by 6pm Monday, her account would be sent to an individual bailiff for the purpose of making a home visit. That visit would incur an enforcement fee of £235.

Hi Ploddertom

 

Thank you for the link i'm just filling out her forms now just not to sure how to word the complaint.

 

So far I have the following

 

Miss Victoria complains that the council failed to send correspondence relating to a Penalty

Charge Notice to her address. She had recently moved house so she did not receive the notice rejecting her

representation, and did not pursue her appeal rights.

 

In May 2018, Miss Victoria was issued with a PCN because of an alledged parking infringement.

She did not initially receive the document, having recently moved.

 

Also not sure what to put on the pe3 form for the reasons as we don't have the camera footage for the parking infringement so don't know what I can argue for her.

 

Any help would be much appreciated

 

Andrew

By the way, there is nothing stopping your sister making a payment proposal and still submit an Out of Time witness statement. That would probably be the best thing to do.

Hi Bailiff Advice

 

My sister only gets housing, PIP and ESA after all bills are paid shes only left with £50 a week to live on.

I think she would need to set up a payment plan because she doesn't have any saving so wouldn't be able to pay the fee in full.

 

Will sending these forms off stop the bailiffs from coming because I'm worried about the cars on the front.

 

Thanks

Andrew

That sounds like a good idea - on Benefits she will probably be looking at about £3-70 per week and means that even if the Out of Time is rejected then at least she should be saved a visit and the extra charge it entails. It is probably important that she sends the Bailiffs proof of her circumstances as well,

Andrew,

 

The bad news is that over 65% of these applications are rejected and this high figure is mainly due to poorly drafted witness statements. I am afraid that yours is not likely to be accepted. In the first instance, the forms should be addressed by your sister and not you.

 

Before going any further, you mention that your sister had 'appealed' the penalty charge to the council but had not received a response. I am assuming from this that the contravention was 'parking' related as opposed to a CCTV contravention (bus lane for example). If the debt is for parking, then she would need to submit an OOT witness statement as opposed to a statutory declaration.

 

PS: The reference to 'camera footage' is of no relevance as your sister appears to have already made representation to the council.

    • oh and it's Andrew wilson and co. enforcement officers
    • i have just this minuet sent them a SAR. hopefully i'll get something from them, but so far they havnt responded to any emails i sent. my ex has already written the letter explaining things for the judge to read when it finally get to court.    shes a decent woman and if i asked her she would come down and go to court with me, in her letter she accepted responsibility i just can't under stand why the water company won't respond ??  feels like i'm going to get shafted here, how it can go from £890 to £3200 in the space of two weeks i don't know, i'm really lost 
    • If the debt is settled within a certain timeframe (ie x days or weeks from date of the order) can the CCJ be removed? 
    • Please give more details about the collection agency. You say that you are able to get something in writing from your ex-partner that you are not responsible. I suggest that you get that immediately. Is your ex-partner prepared to take responsibility for the debt? The jump from £890-£3200 sounds enormous and it sounds to me as if they must've moved this up to the High Court for enforcement. You will get more specialised help soon – but in the meantime send the water company an SAR and get the statement from your ex-partner.  
    • hi. i never actually got any letters from anyone untill i found out about the CCJ then i asked the court for details of who it was from southern water company,  then as soon as i phoned up the collection agency they came around was rude as anything and said they was going to take my stuff.   then told me the bill had gone up from £890 to £3200.  that's when i got a stay at the court, other than that i havnt had any letters at all   
  • Our picks

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • 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.
