Saw my car with a clamp on it this morning and found out it was due for non payment of a PCN which I appealed against.

 

Now i never received the council's response to my appeal and the only letter i recently received was on the Wednesday

( which i was told by the enforcement office, was hand delivered! which I think was posted via royal mail)

 

The letter from the bailiffs stated i owe £200 as the for the PCN and court an legal fee due immediately.

 

I was actually going to response to their letter today, but then saw the car clamped and i was charged £438 which had to be paid within 2 hours otherwise it would have been towed away at an additional charge. Had no choice but to pay and now am fuming over this ridicules fee which i cannot afford at the moment.

 

Apparently once it goes to court, I don't get the court's decision and goes straight to a bailiff.

 

Would appreciate advise on how i can take some of the charges back.

They cant demand it within 2 hours of clamping. There are rules they have to follow.

 

Can you give a breakdown of everything thats happened and a list of charges they levied and what for.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I received a letter dated 26/01 for an amount of £203.

only received this letter on Wednesday.

 

I did not have a chance to respond and was on my list of things to do for today.

Unfortunately, I was unlucky and they already clamped me this morning at 8 am and I had to pay £438.

 

The enforcement agent told me there is a time limit and the car will be towed away ( he mentioned 2 hours)

had no other choice at the time as it was my first time being clamped.

 

He also mentioned there was a hand-delivered letter on the 5th Feb to my address warning me about the charges and possible action which I never received either.

I also learned they will only clamp your car around CCTV so they monitor any fiddling with the clamp and the chain.

Which bailiffs is it? The last part is fiction. They can and will clamp anywhere they can. They dont need to monitor it. If they come back and the clamps gone or damaged, thats their evidence.

I have read the thread, but that was a mistake on change of address from their side. can't see how it helps my situation.

 

Will can the council on Monday morning to see what option I have but I doubt they will offer any solutions. Who do I have to get involved as help, my MP or the borough which the PCN was issued?

I'm confused over the chain of events here. Is it possible you can give a listing of dates and what happened please?

 

Incidentally a Bailiff may immobilise a vehicle and come back 2 hours later to remove it. The 2 hours is to allow you to try and get payment.

Just for completeness, you haven't moved address or anything since you had the Penaty, and what was it for?

I am confused by the above?

 

If you had not received any previous notices then it can ONLY be because all statutory notices from the local authority had been sent to a different address. What you need to do is to find out the contravention date. Next, you need to get your V5C (Log Book) in front of you. You need to look at page two and go down to the very bottom left hand corner where you will find a small box entitled Doc.Ref. There will be a date in the box. Can you let us know both dates (date of contravention and Doc.Ref date)

the date of contravention was the 2nd June 2018. I appealed against this PCN online from their website. can't find my v5 and can't see the box on a copy I have.

 

I called the council and initially, they told me to contact the bailiffs as the case is now with them. I insisted to talk to someone from the council and they gave me a council liaison number which I have to call back tomorrow

You mention that you have located a COPY of the V5C but that that you cannot see the DOC.Ref box. Are you looking at the front page 1 of the V5C or do you have a copy of page 2?

 

If you do have a copy of Page 2, then you will find the small box at the very bottom left hand side.
