    Equita issue and leaving the country

    Equita issue and leaving the country 14th Jun 19 at 5:08 PM
    Hi,

    Last year I received a PCN for parking my car incorrectly. I never received a letter from the council that issued the fine & couple months later I get a letter from Equita. Few letters later theyíre asking for £513 and sent a removal notice. All those letter came to my old address and the landlord only just gave them to me.

    I wanted to send a statutory declaration out of time letter (PE2 form) to put the bailiffs actions on hold and see if I can pay the PCN normally. Unfortunately this needs to be sworn and signed in a court before sending it.

    Iím leaving tomorrow morning and didnít manage to go to court to get it signed. I will be back in the UK in 3 months. Can the bailiff come and take my car? I was thinking about putting a car cover on my car and taking the registration plates off. Is it okay if I send the PE2 form in 3 months? Any advise will be very appreciated. Thank you.

    Yes.

    OK, but not on street and not in your own drive either. A bailiff will look for it and clamp it anyway by checking the VIN instead I expect - they are not that daft.

    Permanently inside a friend or family member's garage is safe.

    You need to update your car registration address with the DVLA before you go (online might be possible tonight?) or you are risking £1000 fine for failing to update the DVLA. Changing your DRIVING LICENCE address does NOT change the car's address so any PCN letters will always go to the wrong address.

    Not good, given the potential DVLA fine if you leave it!

    Is it okay if I send the PE2 form in 3 months?
    Not sure, quickly register now and ask on pepipoo (no Hotmail emails):
