Need some advise

 

had bailiffs at my  door for some  parking ticket on a council car park 

Reason being on his notes he was looking for a person same firstname as mine but lastname colin     

even though my middlename is colin not my lastname

told him I'm not that person as that was not my surname he has on his papers   

 

after a few polite words to him he threatened to take my van  

1, its a work van     

2, im self employed  so need the van  for  work 

3 ,  the previous owner was ment to forward the v5 to me but didnt   

 

i called dvla and van comes back as unregistered owner

told me to fill a form in for new v5   

will be in my name not the name the bailiff has

example of what i mean  

 

Fred joe  bloggs      (  name )

Fred joe               (ballifs script ) 

 

Where do i stand

do you know you have a ticket ?

is this your ticket?

or his ticket?

and are you just being funny with them to get out of it?

 

you must admit, in the bailiffs eyes..its very unusual for old and new registered keepers to have similar names.

that's what I said.anyway back to what I asked

could you have a ticket you don't know about?

 

is it from a council area you could have parked in

simplest way might be to ring and findout

if it was issued after you purchased the van and you have proof

then a simple statutory declaration might sort this .

 

so when did you buy the van

and what date is the PCN...do you know?

Sounds like to me this may be for a different vehicle you owned at some point. The van isn't registered in your name so it couldn't be for that vehicle could it? Your name, whether your full or partial name, isn't linked to it.

 

I'd keep the status of the van as it is - adding your name to it now could cause problems.

 

Get as much info from the bailiff - creditor, ref numbers and so forth.

 

To be clear, you say the van is used for work - in what capacity is it used, ie for carrying tools, supplies etc, and what is it's value?

Can you explain your above comments a little clearer. It may just be me but I am confused.....

You have to admit that the bailiff would be a bit suspicious about the names.

He's surely seen his fair share of people with 10 names mixing them up for different purposes.

Example: john mark colin edward william arthur smith wilson llewellyn burns

Driving licence: john smith

V5c: mark wilson

Insurance: colin llewellyn 

Council tax: edward burns

Etc. Etc.

As for some crazy reasons this is perfectly acceptable in uk, many smart ones do this deliberately to avoid accountability. 

Is this a case of someone taking your middle name from dvla as your surname?

Is this your ticket from another vehicle?

When you buy a vehicle, the seller doesn't forward the V5 to the buyer. That's not how it works. They send it to DVLA with your details and DVLA issue a new one to you.

 

Sounds like that step failed - but is it of any relevance now? Who owned the van when the PCNs was incurred? That's the important bit, which you've not mentioned.

 

As for the name, it's trivial. They found you - you know it's you, and you know the vehicle the PCN was issued to is yours. The name issue is not significant. If they didn't get it from DVLA (since the vehicle wasn't registered) then it's no surprise it's not accurate.

 

Your problem is, they may clamp your vehicle to force payment. They way to prevent that is to convince them it's essential for work purposes, but then you have accepted your responsibility for the debt and they may try to enforce by other means.
