    UKPC parking threats 10th Oct 17 at 9:08 AM
    Hi guys
    Iv had a look through the newbie forum but feel I need a bit more/different advice.
    Long story short, outside the front of my old apartment complex I received ticket from UKPC. I had just moved out.
    I ignored it thinking it wouldnít go further. But letters started coming through my parents door in regards to it.
    Now I donít live with my parents and havenít for a few years but my cars registered there.
    Whatís the best way to proceed with this? Pretend I never got the letters as I donít live there and get my parents to inform them I havenít lived there in a long time?
    This is in Belfast by the way.
    Thanks guys

    The newbies faq thread has specific advice for NI residents! You can ignore.

    Yeah but it’s annoying my parents having these letters, espically as my mother is a worrier and prob thinks debt collecters are coming to the door to take me to jail or pay 000’s of pounds. If they rang and just said I don’t live there and stop sending letters would it help?

    no , nothing will help, just tell them not to open them and to pass them on to you whenever you visit them

    nothing will happen without a court order , no debt collectors , no bailiffs
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    We don’t normally advise any contact with PPCs or debt collectors in cases involving NI or Scotland. But if it is worrying your parents that much, write to them and tell them that the registered keeper no longer lives at that address, and that any further communications should be sent to xxxxx.

    More worryingly, (for you, not your parents), is the fact that you seem not to have updated these details with the DVLA. It needs to be done via two separate notifications, as there’s no read-across, one for your V5C (log book) and one for your driver’s licence. There’s a max £1,000 (real) fine potentially waiting in the wings if you get caught out.
    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.

    Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.
