He didn't receive a summons as we had moved from South Wales to London, they may well have sent one to a previous address but it wasn't received.
The first we heard of it was last week when the recovery letter came to our current London address.
No change in ownership.
No change in address in the DVLA. We lived with my fiancés father before we moved, who still lives at & owns that address- he has always passed us on post (or opened it himself if we weren't due home) and he claims not to have received mail relating to this.
Ok. So the next steps are:
1: ensuring the DVLA has the address we used to live at (his dads)
2: making sure his father is absolutely clear that he did not receive a summons
3: his father has to make a statutory declaration to that effect
4: go through the court case from the beginning
by 4. I mean, they will send another summons and we will have to begin the court process from the start?
