Can I challenge the fact that the their reply wasn't received by me and the postman delivered it to the wrong address, my neighbour is willing to corroborate this?
Sorry just to clarify what does "You will be in time to do so and so you will only need to make an in time stat dec covering that one point"?
What is "time stat dec" mean?
Note the original incident took place on 6 Sep. I now have a Charge Certificate dated 13 Dec, if this charge of £195 is not paid within 14 days a county court order will be applied and charge increased.
After I queried the original charge of notice of £65, the second note from them rejecting the query was lost and sent to my neighbour. I only found out about this when I received the increased penalty notice of £130,at which point I wrote to them again and they rejected this stating they are not responsible for incorrect delivery by Royal Mail, even though my neighbour can corroborate this.
I then did nothing due to being too busy at work due to a deadline that means I'm working circa 7 days a week including night shifts. So I now have ended up with the next charge certificate notice of £195 on 13 Dec and ultimatum of country court order if I don't pay within 14 days.
This is the complete history. So please advise, can I still dispute within the 14 days?
Secondly, does any precedent exist of prior claims where the adjudicator or court has accepted that Royal Mail have delivered the notice to the wrong address and defendant is not liable for this?
