UKPC Ltd Parking Charge / DCB Legal Ltd Letter
Hi, I am a newbie here and really hoping that someone can help me. Last week I received two threatening letters regarding a PNC that I have never heard anything of. I have received the attached letter which I am guessing is a legit "Letter before Claim" which is referred to on your Newbies thread which is dated the 11th of October and I also received a "Debt Recovery Plus" letter demanding payment for £170 which is dated JULY 2023. Both in relation to a parking charge from April of this year. A parking charge which I have never received any prior notice or correspondence in relation too. I have a couple of issue with this and I am unsure how to handle or respond to these letters. Firstly, I don't actually recall the parking charge neither can I confidently confirm who was driving at the time as I am not the only one with access to the vehicle. The letters do not actually confirm any detail of the reason why I was issued a PNC in the first place only the location and registration number of my vehicle. Secondly, the PNC is addressed to I am assuming myself however, there is a typo in my name? Is this still legally binding? Can it be ignored/thrown out on the basis that the person they are addressing does not actually exist? Finally as previously mentioned, I have never actually received anything prior to these what I can only refer too as final demand letters in relation to a PNC therefore I feel it is extremely unfair to request additional expenses/charges from me when I was never actually given the chance to dispute the original notice or threaten me with a CCJ/Court proceedings. Any guidance on how I handle or respond to this in order to get it throw out would be greatly appreciated as I really don't know where to go from here. I have tried contacting the Landowners and UKPC Ltd but have been unsuccessful in getting through to anyone that can assist. I am reluctant to contact these sharks as I don't want them to have my details or take my contacting them as an admission of liability. Please can someone help and tell me what I should do next? I am conscious of time as this charge is apparently from April and these letters seem fairly final. I don't want a CCJ or court proceedings to go ahead, please can you help?
