    No PCN on windscreen and letter arrived after 14 days 12th Oct 18 at 12:12 PM
    Hi,

    I've read through the FAQs but didn't see this.

    The driver arrived back at the car when the issuer was taking photos of the vehicle, no document was either on the windscreen or handed to the driver at the time of this even though the guy was there.
    In the photos no ticket can be seen.
    I received the first letter regarding this (NE Parking Ltd) 33 days after the parking offence. I have read through the law regarding this and understand that if a ticket is not issued at the time to the driver or attached to the car, the PCN letter has to be sent within 14 days of the offence.

    Can someone clarify if this is correct? I also live in Scotland and this is an English PCN.
    thanks
    Sandra

    Please read the newbies thread, all the answers are there, I believe the NTK has to arrive within 14 days if there is no windscreen ticket so you have a strong starting position BUT that wont necessarily stop the scammers chasing you, they just want money and as much as they can scam off people.


    Also I would edit your post so as not to reveal the identity of the driver, it is always advised never to reveal identity of driver to scammers.


    Don't know whether resident in Scotland BUT English PCN works in your favour, others will definitely know though and will reply soon.

    And that's fine S BUT you still need to edit because it wasn't ' I arrived back at the car' it was THE DRIVER arrived back at the car.


    The parking scammers read these forums and CAN use your posts against you in any court case!


    Other more experienced posters will give you more detailed advice on next steps.

    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

    I differ from some people on here. I would send an "Out of time" single point appeal point as if your dates are right, you have a 100% winner.

    Why waste time with other "technical" hopeful points that waste time when you have a winner??

    But do read through the forum for successful "Out of time" winners.

    Look at post #3188 here in POPLA DECISIONS sticky thread https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4488337&page=160
