Clearly I am referring to 35 years of hand written mail logs on which the letters referred to do not appear – therefore they have not been received – that is where I'm coming from. The mail is received by my secretary going into the hallway and sorting out mail that is for us and leaving mail that is not, and every so often there is a clear out of surplus Mail comprising of people's mail, who have left years before, and therefore is clearly out of date, as well as junk mail.
How anyone thinks that a professional office has received these four letters on the one hand and not replied to some on the other – a fact substantiated by the secretary not recording them in the mail in their log (which records all mail except circulars or advertising), whereas other debt chasing letters are in fact recorded – I do not know.
How also, it appears that the authority had recognised the wrong name being put on the demands and did not correct it – and even now insist it is correctly named – indicates a certain " we are right type of brain" – they had three chances at least to recheck this when they got no reply before sending again and even when they have checked it now. They are still saying it's correct – you couldn't make it up only bureaucrats can do this, surely.
Surely it is the essence that firstly, it has been addressed correctly (completely correctly) and secondly that it has been delivered to the address and both of these elements are requirements in order to specify with any certainty that it has been done correctly.
In this case. Firstly, the name is ***** ***** secondly the handwritten record by the secretary shows that it was not delivered.
I take your response has been from the angle that says that if an authority does something, then it must be right – and in my experience that is so far from the truth that one only has to read the newspapers reporting otherwise every day.
I shall check the question of appropriate notices adjacent to the parked car and send a photo if possible
