    Parking ticket, now gone to bailiffs

    Parking ticket, now gone to bailiffs 8th Feb 18 at 10:00 AM
    My sister had a parking ticket issued in July 2012, she didn’t pay it, but it was a council car park. Anyway, January this year she received a letter from Rundles enforcement agency, asking for the fine. She has since had a bailiff at her door, but wasn’t in. She’d heard nothing else about the ticket, for quite some time, so obviously forgot about it.
    Rundles have also got her name wrong..
    Where does she stand after all this time?

    As this involves a council ticket, your best bet is to take this to the Pepipoo forum. They have an excellent track record for dealing with legit tickets.

    Sign-up with anything other than a Hotmail address and read the intro posts before posting.

    You may also want to read the faqs on the site http://bailiffadviceonline.co.uk for help in dealing with the Bailiffs themselves.

    This ticket was issued nearly 6 years ago. It is very unusual for a ticket from this long ago to be enforced now. There is also the small matter of when the warrant had been issued (a warrant is only valid for 12 months).

    Does you sister remember receiving all the notices from the council?

    @Herbie21 What about the historic fines campaign. https://www.gov.uk/government/news/hm-courts-tribunals-service-advice-to-debtors-on-unpaid-historic-fines

    Have helped people with fines over 13 years old. Are you saying this is a bluff?
    Idiots please note: If you intend NOT to read the information on the Notice of Allocation and hand a simple win to the knuckle dragging ex-clampers, then don't waste people's time with questions on a claim you'll not defend.

    Thanks Herbie21, very useful information.
    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
