    • Hi there, the company name on the bit of paper is:   Bristow & Sutor   Says the total amount £990.49 and this includes £235 enforement stage fees,  The CTAX was owed to North Tyneside Council. The guy also said that it wasn't just for CTAX. Other debts were combined.   I did leave other debts behind too when I moved. Perhaps a utility bill, credit card debts and a Provi doorstep loan.   I think the guy said that he would be back Saturday too. This is what I'm trying to avoid multiple visits. Don't want my mam to get upset.   Thanks for the help.   Bear
    • Hi   Just to be clear a Tenant cannot refuse to pay rent after they have signed your Tenancy Agreement for the property irrespective if they are claiming no hot water for xx weeks especially when you have evidence to the contrary.   As they are now 2 months in arrears they have breached your tenancy agreement and you could go down the section 8 route for the rent arrears to evict your tenant and the letting agent you employed should be fully aware of this.   The hot water issue sounds more like the tenant didn't have a clue how to operate the heating system within your property   Has the Letting Agent informed this Tenant about the rents arrears and their Guarantor who would also be liable for the rents arrears?   Now the Tenant that wants to leave early as there is no 'Break Clause' in your Tenancy Agreement signed they would have to negotiate with you the Landlord to leave early as they are then in breach of that signed Tenancy Agreement.   Now before doing any of this is they have paid a Deposit it should be protected in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme and they should have been give a copy of that deposit schemes prescribed terms.
    • So a bit of an update as I haven’t posted for a while   I have received a court date of the 14th of Feb 2020 (maybe they will take me for a nice meal afterwards?) so I am starting to prepare my witness statement.    today I have received a letter from BW legal in response to my CPR letter yet again ignoring the fact that their T&Cs do not cover double parking. They are also now starting to hint that I was parked out of the bay yet the images provided on their evidence of the three tickets they are claiming for don’t evidence this as they are such bad quality.  stapled to the back of this is another letter. As a “gesture of good will”, the client is offering an out of court settlement figure of £500 payable in the next 5 days. Me thinks they are starting to realise they may not have a leg to stand on here!
    • firstly , they are not a Debt collector [never confuse the two - a DCA chasing consumer credit debt is totally powerless and have ZERO legal powers to do or take anything - they have no more legal powers than you or I do ] these will be bailiffs and do they have legal powers.   However, the good bit is that unlike what you might have seen on TV, for a council CTAX liability order [please confirm there is or NOT a CCJ registered check your creit file] there is NO right of forced entry. The bottom line is, bar all the arm waving, is, that if you simply totally ignore them, they will eventually go away.   Now what they can do is two fold on CTAX. basically add fees to a set limit.   the first is a notice of enforcement letter. this comes with a fee of £75 and gives you 7 days to set up some sort of payment plan.   the second is an actual visit, where by a further fee of £235, whereby the fees are now £310 , the maximum they can ever add to the CTAX bill. this is typically accompanied by a threat to removed goods, it's cleverly worded or 'explained' to make you 'think' they can waltz in any take anything they like. THEY CANNOT unless YOU let them in. which you don't, nor leave doors unlocked as they can then enter through what is called 'peaceful entry'.   in real term, the seizure of goods is limited to stuff outside like cars YOU might own that are not behind locked gates.   so i'm not too sure what stage you are at  so please clarify. the name of the bailiff company. how much you now owe the county council the CTAX is owed too.   if you have any/all paperwork please scan it to PDF  after redaction - read our upload guide]   one last point. they don't keep coming around they don't keep ringing. neither of those gander them anymore money so they don't bother.   dx      
    • Hi Everybody I moved into my parents house quite recently. My mam is aged and extremely ill (it's just me and her living in the house) and I moved from the North to the South of England to take care of her.   Now I've got a CCJ against me for unpaid Council tax from when I was living in the North and a debt collector has just showed up at the door. Now I don't have the money to pay the entire amount straight away. But I'm willing to try and enter in some kind of payment plan and gradually pay down the debt. However my main concern is that they don't keep coming around and phoning the house threatening and harassing my mam over her sons debt.   However the guy at the door was threatening to seize goods and have them sold at public auction. Getting bailiffs to break in etc.   When I told him that I've nothing of any real value he said he could just take whatever was in the house. Something about if she couldn't prove whatever was hers then they could just take whatever (I'm not 100% this but I think something to this affect).   He left me a "Notification of Enforcement agent visit" sheet of paper.   From the first paragraph it says:   "As an enforcement agent I've attended your premises today with the intention of taking control of your goods in accordance with the taking control of goods (fees) regulations 2014. At this time your goods are bound. You cannot remove, sell or otherwise dispose of them"   Thus I'd appreciate any advice that readers my be able to offer. Does anyone know the law regarding "seizing assets" when the debtor is not the homeowner/tenant?   tia Bear

smart parking/Gladstone ANPR PCN PAPLOC - Gateway Shopping Centre, Trowbridge ***PCN CANCELLED***

Recommended Posts

Please help, I have been ignoring the debt collectors letters for nearly a year now but now I have a letter before action (which I was under the impression from other sites would not happen) and to put it bluntly am slightly pooing myself! 

 

 

1 Date of the infringement - 26/11/2018

 

2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] - It is a notice to owner, not keeper but is dated 24/12/2018

 

I have just noticed this - is this a non starter for them then?

 

3 Date received -   About 26/12/2018

 

4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [Y/N?] Not specifically [Smart Parking Ltd are able to request registered keeper details from DVLA, under the reasomable cirteria of recovery of private parking charges.  DVLA have confirmed that you are the registered keeper of this vehicle.]

 

5 Is there any photographic evidence of the event? - Yes

 

6 Have you appealed? [Y/N?] post up your appeal] - No

Have you had a response? [Y/N?] post it up - N/A

 

7 Who is the parking company? - Smart Parking

 

8. Where exactly [carpark name and town] - Gateway Shopping Centre, Trowbridge

 

For either option, does it say which appeals body they operate under. - IAS

 

There are two official bodies, the BPA and the IAS. If you are unsure,

please check HERE

 

If you have received any other correspondence, please mention it here

 

4/12/18 - Parking Charge Notice

24/12/18 - Notice to Owner stating Original Notice Date as being 3/12/18 not 4/12/18 as stated in PCN

8/1/19 - DRP Letter

13/2/19 - DRP Letter

7/3/19 - DRP Letter

29/3/19 - Zenith Collections Letter

I have just noticed that the Protections of Freedoms Act is mentioned on the first letter from DRP

If the dates you have quoted for the infringment and the receipt of the NTK are corrcet then there is no keeper liability and they ahve obtained the keeper's details from the DVLA fraudulently.

 

You could respond to Gladdy's saying simply no keeper liability has been shown and leave it at that but best wait for others (EricsBrother) to come along and advise you.

Opinons please......

 

Dear John

I’m sorry this relationship is simply not working out for me, you are clingy and relentless in your requests for my attention.  I simply have no time for your selfish games anymore and instead of ignoring your threats I am considering legal action against you.

 

Thank you for your letter before claim, which I found rather amusing.  In fact I have enjoyed each and every one of your fruitless attempts to make me pay the extortionate invoice you feel is justified!

 

I can confirm that I am indeed the registered keeper of the above vehicle, however I will also confirm that I was not the driver at the time of the photographic capture you have provided.

 

Since you have failed to comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (POFA), I trust that there will be no more futile threatening letters and indeed text messages!! 

 

Should I received any more correspondence from yourselves I will be considering charges of harassment against you.

Brilliant!  The bit about the "relationship" had me creasing up!

 

The only part I would disagree with is the last paragraph, as harassment is very difficult to prove.  if you want to make a financial threat how about saying that if their clients are daft enough to do court you will request full costs due to unreasonable behaviour under Civil Procedure Rule 27.14(2)(g).

 

Plus, send the letter to Smart (not) Parking too.  Unscrupulous solicitors love fleecing not only motorists but also their own clients by egging them on to do court even with useless cases, as they get paid win or lose,.

Final draft - as long as my facts are ok & watertight!!

 

Dear John

I’m sorry this relationship is simply not working out for me; you are clingy and relentless in your requests for my attention.  I simply have no time for your selfish games anymore and instead of ignoring your threats I am actively breaking up with you.  To make it very clear and simple for you, I do not wish to hear from you again.

 

Thank you for your letter before claim, which I found rather amusing.  In fact I have enjoyed each and every one of your fruitless attempts to make me pay the extortionate invoice you feel is justified!

 

I can confirm that I am indeed the registered keeper of the above vehicle, however I will also confirm that I was NOT the driver at the time of the photographic capture you have provided.

 

Since you have failed to comply with the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (POFA), I trust that there will be no more futile threatening letters and indeed text messages!! 

 

Should your client be dim-witted enough to continue this to a Court of Law I will most certainly request full costs due to unreasonable behaviour under Civil Procedure Rule 27.14(2)(g).

 

Thank you for the last year, I’d like to say it’s been fun but it’s actually been quite tedious.  Have a nice life.

Is anyone able to just confirm that I have my facts correct and am not going to get a snotty letter back?

Could include that as there was non compliance with POFA, you are minded to report them to ICO for breach of GDPR for having no reason to ask DVLA for your details. but probably OK as is might be worth holding the GDPR back for now.


We could do with some help from you.

so did you receive the original NTK that was supposedly sent out on the 3rd/4th? if so when?

Share this post

I received everything listed above, no additional letters, The PCN was dated 4/12/2018 not the NTK...  I didn't receive specifically an NTK but a Notice to Owner dated 24/12/2018

On your first post you said the "offence" happened on the 26th November but now you say the PCN was dated 4th December.

This might suggest that you has a windscreen ticket rather than an ANPR ticket.

 

Could you please confirm the date problem

. If the 4th and the 24th  December are correct then they failed the POFA regulations then they can only sue the driver, not the keeper.

So, on my Notice to Owner (dated 24/12/2018) it states that original Notice date was 3/12/2018

 

The original PCN (dated 4/12/2018) shows photographs of my vehicle arriving & leaving so I assume ANPR

 

- also I know for a fact (unable to state here without incrimination ) that no ticket was placed on the vehicle at any time.

please scan up the PCN with the photo's on it but remove any thing like reg no/pcn ref/address/name that can ID you.
