    Parking ticket, car sold, inform bailiff? 15th Jan 20 at 11:30 AM
    Hi all,

    I got a parking ticket. I contested it > rejected > contested again after receiving Notice to Owner, no correspondence... Fast forward 3 months to today - bailiff contacts me saying they're going to visit and I owe 500+.

    Entirely coincidentally, I sold that car on Monday. I've sent off the V5 with new owner's details, but I'm worried for the new owner that the car may get clamped if seen parked on the road... So, do I inform the bailiff company that I've sold the car? Or do I just let it go and hope the DVLA process is complete before it's spotted on the street? As far as I'm concerned - the less contact with a bailiff, the better.

    Obviously I'm never going to let them in to my property, and I have nothing else outside the confines of my property they can take, so I'm sure they'll give up after a while and send it back to the local council... So my main concern is for the new owner.

    Did this case go to court and was a judgment (CCJ) issued? If not, then a bailiff has no right or business contacting you. If a CCJ was issued, did you pay it or apply for a set-aside. Is this in Scotland or England?

    As this forum deals primarily with private parking tickets, not with bailiff issues, you will be best served in dealing with bailiffs/enforcement agents by making contact with 'Bailiff Advice Online'. Sheila, who provides this excellent service, has an extremely good reputation for assisting people with bailiff issues.

    Calls and the email enquiry service are free.

    Here's your link:

    Ah, my apologies - I didn't realise - I thought it was all things parking tickets, bailiffs etc.

    Thanks for the info!
