    Parking ticket, now gone to bailiffs

    Parking ticket, now gone to bailiffs 8th Feb 18 at 10:00 AM
    My sister had a parking ticket issued in July 2012, she didn’t pay it, but it was a council car park. Anyway, January this year she received a letter from Rundles enforcement agency, asking for the fine. She has since had a bailiff at her door, but wasn’t in. She’d heard nothing else about the ticket, for quite some time, so obviously forgot about it.
    Rundles have also got her name wrong..
    Where does she stand after all this time?

    As this involves a council ticket, your best bet is to take this to the Pepipoo forum. They have an excellent track record for dealing with legit tickets.

    Sign-up with anything other than a Hotmail address and read the intro posts before posting.

    You may also want to read the faqs on the site http://bailiffadviceonline.co.uk for help in dealing with the Bailiffs themselves.

    This ticket was issued nearly 6 years ago. It is very unusual for a ticket from this long ago to be enforced now. There is also the small matter of when the warrant had been issued (a warrant is only valid for 12 months).

    Does you sister remember receiving all the notices from the council?

    @Herbie21 What about the historic fines campaign. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/hm-courts-tribunals-service-advice-to-debtors-on-unpaid-historic-fines

    Have helped people with fines over 13 years old. Are you saying this is a bluff?
    Idiots please note: If you intend NOT to read the information on the Notice of Allocation and hand a simple win to the knuckle dragging ex-clampers, then don't waste people's time with questions on a claim you'll not defend.

    There is a huge difference between both debts. With a warrant for parking enforcement, the warrant has a 'life' of 12 months but can be extended once only for an additional 12 month period.

    With magistrate court fines, they are criminal offences and as such, the warrant does not expire and neither can the debts be included in bankruptcy or IVA's.

    The number of enquiries I receive from the public daily regarding debts from the HMCTS Historic Debt Team is simply staggering...and although many debtors are candidates for Section 14 Statutory Declarations....it is really surprising how many people do not want to go to the bother of attending court and instead, pay the debt to conclude the matter.

    I have outlined more about HMCTS Historic Debts on the following page:

    http://bailiffadviceonline.co.uk/hmcts-historic-debt-team

    PS: I will be updating the above page in the next few days regarding payment arrangements for these 'historic debts'.

    Thanks Herbie21, very useful information.
    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.
