I parked in a council car park last year and didn't pay. I subsequently came back to a notice on the windscreen which I removed and then forgot about. I didn't receive anything through the post so didn't worry about it until now. A letter came through the post last week regarding PCNs from a PPC that hadn't been brought to my attention sooner because I realise now that my logbook is still registered at my old address. Any advice?

One thing that won't get you help is starting new threads for the same issue. I have asked for a merge.

Sorry for the new thread, I was having a bit of a panic.

Someone else will advise but I think that filing the forms stops the bailiffs for now. Do not do anything without advice - in any case the bailiffs have not found you yet.

In order to decide what to do you need to complete the picture.

Useful to know when warrants were authorised.

Ask TEC 0300 123 1059.

----
and, from council.
What were the PCN contraventions?
Dates?
Dates of subsequent notices.

I'm not at home at the moment but the dates of the PCNs were from January and May 2018. I will call the TEC when I can. Would ringing the bailiffs be a terrible idea?

Getting to that but depends what you intend to say?

Re TEC
Also ask the address on warrants and if and when it has changed.

I was going to tell them the truth about my v5 being registered at my old address and that I've only just realised that they may have been trying to contact me. They're not going to be sympathetic are they? Do they do payment plans or would they request it straight away? What are their charges likely to be? Am I looking at £500+?

Why come here, asking advice, ignore it and then proceed on your own catastrophic course?

the council will indeed pass your new details onto the bailiffs as it will help them recover money they want.

meanwhile, asking about what it may cost and worrying about it wont help, be proactive, post as much detail and as accurate as possible and wait for a reply from someone who knows, then do as they request and follow the correct process as advised.

I have until 20th April to pay the bailiffs otherwise they're visiting the house according to the letter - they've said that my goods are bound in accordance with the law. They clearly mean business. I would appreciate what steps I need to take next please, I'm running out of time.

Contact Sheila at https://bailiffadviceonline.co.uk/ she's an expert on this sort of stuff.

ok so to help ease your mind a little here what they can and cant do.


Bailiffs cannot enter your home:

by force, for example by pushing past you
if only children under 16 or vulnerable people (with disabilities, for example) are present
between 9pm and 6am
through anything except the door

Bailiffs are allowed to force their way into your home to collect unpaid criminal fines, Income Tax or Stamp Duty, but only as a last resort.

If you do not let a bailiff in or agree to pay them:

they could take things from outside your home, for example your car
you could end up owing even more money
If you do let a bailiff in but do not pay them they may take some of your belongings. They could sell the items to pay debts and cover their fees.

I wasn't offended; just been away from laptop all day.

The amounts you've quoted can't go up from there.
Except £110, IF it gets to the point of bailiff seizing goods.

You're not giving us much to work with, only that you failed to update V5.

Moved when?

Mail forwarding?

Updated yet?
