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.

    • 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.
