DCBL Letter after CCJ Ordered!
My first post here so apologies in advance if there's basic questions or info I miss out in this post - I have read the Newbie post & a lot of examples of people's threads/posts etc. and have got a better understanding but this situation seems to slightly vary from what I have read.
Long story short (as much as I can make it):
- Summer last year, unknowingly, overstayed 20/30mins in a Private Starbucks car park (Max allowed is 2hrs).
- Received letter from Parking eye a month or so after for a fine for approx £60.
As per experience and bad advice, ignored all letters thereafter.
- A few letters later, received CCJ letter (Nov 2023) ordering to to pay £227 to Parking Eye - seems Letter before claim was undelivered or ignored; Residence is a large Estate so sometimes letters go elsewhere - Anyways, thought this was another bogus letter and ignored.
- Most recently received a letter (Jan 2023; letter dated end of Dec 2023) from DCBLtd (Direct Collection Bailiffs Ltd) with the heading "NOTICE OF DEFPT RECOVERY - Unpaid County Court Judgement"...."...have 14 days from the day of this letter to pay the outstanding debt...". The 14 days has expired and debt remains unpaid. Debt has increased to just under £300.
My main question is this, from what I read I believe this still can be potentially set aside by completing N244 form, however Im not sure there are any grounds to set aside. The name and address are correct. Yes there may have been a letter before claim that wasn't received, but this cannot be proven. In all honesty, if it has to be paid then fair enough; just want the CCJ removed.
What are the options?
Please keep the language and steps as simplified as possible as reading through all this info has been extremely helpful but at times confusing.
I hope someone replies soon to avoid me just paying when there's a way out.
Appreciate the help in advance! - Letter attached below...
