    Cel - ccj 9th Jan 18 at 9:39 PM

    I logged into my credit report today to see a CCJ has been made against me on 22nd November 2017. It's registered against an address I haven't lived at since May 2014.

    I found out from County Court Business Centre that it's relating to a Civil Enforcement Ltd penalty notice issued on 6th May 2015. I have no knowledge of this notice, nor have I received any information regarding it.

    I sold the car in question in June 2016 and the DVLA have confirmed they have the address I moved to in May '14 on record. I never received any correspondence to that address.

    I'm reading all about the set aside requests and have created a defendants statement but am wondering should I follow the standard template that's on these forums? I've tried to contact CEL but get put through to an answer machine - I have written a letter to send to them tomorrow asking for original copies of all correspondence that was sent, including evidence of the parking infringement.

    Would it be best to wait and keep trying CEL to see if I get any type of response before issuing my N244 form? There are so many conflicting views on whether not being present at an address is evidence enough.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I was reviewing my record to start to plan for a mortgage!

    Hi - they are corresponding on email interestingly enough. I'll see if they release information without a signed letter and let you know

    Do you mean that they haven't followed good service by trying to locate an up to date address?

    Try searching the forum for 'set aside not good service' and look for posts by Johnersh.

    So someone from CEL phoned me back and have provided an email address to use to ask for any data they have regarding this claim? I was planning on sending the below - is this OK to do?

    I've read that it may look better on the N244 form if I've tried to obtain information regarding the claim

    Dear Sirs,
    I am writing to you regarding the above case number and in regards to vehicle registration XXXX.
    On 9th January 2018, I logged into my credit record on Experian to see that a CCJ was registered against my name on 22nd November 2017.
    The CCJ is registered against the below address:
    I have not lived at this address since 8th May 2014.
    On seeing the CCJ, I phoned the Northampton County Court who have advised me that the CCJ has been made by Civil Enforcement Ltd for a penalty notice on 6th May 2015. I have never received any correspondence regarding this penalty notice.
    Please supply me with copies of all original documents issued, as well as evidence of the parking infringement and proof that I, as the registered keeper, was driving the car at this time.
    Please send all documents and any other correspondence to my email address, XXX or to my current address;


    Please respond to this request within 5 working days and by 17th January 2018.
