    CSB Solicitors - LCB? Ignore? Or Respond 9th Sep 17 at 10:30 PM
    Hello,

    I am very new to dealing with these parking charge notices and after reading the advice on this forum, decided to ignore all correspondence from the company trying to get me to pay.

    I have today received this letter from CSB Solicitors and am unsure on the next action to take, I have tried to read and decide for myself but am finding it difficult to decide what this letter actually is.

    I would really appreciate advice on the next steps to take. Should I continue to ignore?

    You did not read IGNORE advice on this forum.

    I am very new to dealing with these parking charge notices and after reading the advice on this forum, decided to ignore all correspondence from the company trying to get me to pay.
    Why, after almost 5 years since the law changed to make ignoring a very bad option, do people come on here suggesting that they have received current advice to ignore a private parking charge notice? Making it up as some kind of excuse? Why?

    There is no way that any current poster has received this advice from this (or any other creditable) forum. Where did you get 'ignore' from @touchmyflop?
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.

    Okay, I read a lot of posts (not sure when they were dated) suggesting that ignoring was an option.

    I am not claiming it as an excuse, there is simply a lot of information to digest for someone who is new to this and have therefore come here to seek advice.

    If ignoring IS a bad option, I was hoping to be steered in the right direction.

    Where/what should I be reading or doing in specific relation to this letter as I am not sure what it is.

    That gave you the correct advice in relation to that letter.

    You must check dates of any advice before following it. Finding 'comfort' in any advice, despite its age, which makes it 'easy', is no better than adopting the ostrich position - head in the sand, but 4rse end totally exposed.

    You seem to now be at the debt collector stage, please see the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #4 about how to deal with debt collectors - essentially ignore (but not the same as ignoring the original PCN).

    Ignoring a NtK opens you more up to a court case against you. But you're not there yet, so no need to panic, but now use your time more profitably by reading thoroughly (not skimming then complaining it's too complicated) the newbies sticky.

    Just to be clear, I'm not doing any of these things, I started a thread because I was unsure how to proceed in relation to this letter specifically. Thought it best to seek advice from people who knew more than I did rather than waste my time going down the wrong avenue (i.e. setting up a reply as I thought this to be a LCB from what I had read, again, it is a lot to digest for a new person).

    S&K Car Park Management are not big players among the parking cowboy scum industry; just count the court papers they have ever served, according to BMPA stats:

    http://www.bmpa.eu/companydata/S_and_K_Car_Park_Management.html

    ''Our recommendation for this operator: Ignore but keep paperwork. Small operator who does everything in-house, including ignoring appeals.''

    Not exactly a shining example of a professional firm, nor a legal bigshot. No worries about such companies.

    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
