    PCN date

    PCN date 29th Nov 17 at 6:39 PM
    Hi All


    New poster here with a quick question. (tried the newbie page but no luck)


    I have an ongoing issue with a well known parking/debt recovery company.


    Am I correct in thinking that as the PCN was dated 49 days after the alleged offence is it enforceable?
    There was no parking ticket on the vehicle at the time of the alleged offence, just entry and exit pics of the vehicle on the PCN.


    Many Thanks

    they can try to enforce it in the small claims court (MCOL) and it is definitely enforceable against the driver !!

    it appears they failed POFA2012 due to the keeper not receiving it within 14 days, so in theory can only pursue the driver (if known)

    but they will try to make the keeper pay up or dob the driver in so dont assume it will go away

    the debt collectors are powerless , IGNORE them

    the ppc has 6 years to try a court claim in england and wales , 5 in scotland

    do not reveal who was driving

    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

    Thanks Redx


    As I said no ticket on car and 49 days between alleged offence and date on PCN.


    I have written to parking company with a template letter basically telling them to do one as although I was the registered keeper I was not the driver. They do not know the drivers name.
    I then received a letter from a legal company last year asking for payment to which I replied saying I was not liable as I was not the driver enclosing a copy of the letter I sent to the parking company (With proof of receipt)
    I have now received a Letter Of Claim from said legal company. Do I pay up, ignore, or respond with one of the many do one templates?
    Many Thanks

    It would help if you told us who you are dealing with. It will enable us to advise you more accurately that simple generic advice.

    Should I threaten harassment
    That has the potential to get you into real trouble.
    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.
