    Excel PCN: Circled, Not Crossed?

    Excel PCN: Circled, Not Crossed? 22nd Sep 16 at 7:17 PM
    Hi very clever people on the internet, and thanks for the advice btw, I regularly read these forums when life goes down the shitter.

    My partner as the registered keeper of my car was issued with a PCN from excel parking in June. Long story short, I got carried away after reading these forums and appealed against it (road works and traffic lights etc. made the signs unobservable), but signed off as myself not the registered keeper. Hence no reply, and in comes bw legal flexing their CCJs. After trawling these forums and trying to decide what to do, I glanced and realised the original PCN contravention code (83) is circled, not crossed (as is stated it should be on the PCN).

    Does this render the PCN invalid? I thought it might be as at uni if we tick/circle instead of cross (tells us to), a multiple choice question is marked as invalid.

    Kind regards,

    JC

    No, it doesn't because there are no such rules.

    But BW Legal letters and misleading replies are certainly considered 'invalid' (by us at least) so you should be reporting them to the SRA and CSA. BW Legal are being investigated and everyone should be reporting them. If nothing else, it buys you time with no court claim happening and might get the issue dropped in the edn (depends on the SRA and CSA outcomes).

    Read other BW Legal threads galore! Plenty of people have sent decent complaints to the CSA and SRA and they've shown what to write to make it stick. Also respond each time to BW Legal, do not leave the ball in their court.
    PCN in a private car park in England/Wales? DON'T PAY IT BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT

    USE THE 'FORUM JUMP' ON RIGHT, GO TO THE PARKING TICKETS FORUM. READ THE 'NEWBIES' THREAD.
    Do NOT read old advice to ignore, unless in Scotland/NI.

    Amazing, thank you! It might not be as glamorous but this all reminds me of an episode of Suits.

    It has been confirmed that BWLegal are under investigation

    The letters being sent by BWLegal are much the same so you are not alone.

    As with any company under investigation, you are not obliged to deal with them subject to the investigation report.

    Would you deal with a doctor or a police officer under investigation ?
    Do remember that BWLegal letters are menacing with lack of attention and make false statements.

    Therefore a reply to BWLegal would be that you aware of the investigation by the SRA into BWLegal and you are unable to comment further until the investigation is complete
    If BWLegal ignore that, then a further complaint to the SRA is warranted

    BWLegal swept into this ..... lets's sweep them away
