I have just had an enforcement officer at the door regarding

Resolved Question:

I have just had an enforcement officer at the door regarding a car which was written off last year. The first thing I knew about this was today. I had only received one communication which did not refer to the "crime" and I had assumed it was for a debt I had not paid. The vehicle was not sorn at the time as there was an insurance claim going through via my company insurance which covered me whilst working. I have recently received notices about sorn and have had that sorted with the relevant authority. They were advised that the vehicle had been off the road since July 2015. The cie claim was for December 2015. Can I appeal this?

Does it have a Court number case on it? Does it say its from Northampton?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
was from Marstons and says I owe Her Majesty's Courts & Tribunals Services Devon & Cornwall

Then it looks like a Court fine.

You need to speak to that Court. In order to get it set aside you will need to make a statutory declaration. That is where you go before the Court and say you didnt know anything about this.

If the Court accepts this then the whole matter is set aside. But you only have 3 months from the date you found out to do this - so you need to be quick

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

no
