Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
is this a council issue fine?
There is a time limit but it is six months.
Also, it is not really settled law whether it is met when they issue a PCN or get it before the adjudicator. Given all the authorities I would expect the determination to be that it was at the time of the PCN.
If this is a CCTV PCN though they have 28 days to send it to the registered keeper.
If there was a cross over in the change of names at the DVLA then they would complied I'm afraid.
Can I clarify anything for you?
It is not clear law. It is open to debate.
I would expect any decision of the higher courts to conclude that the issue of the PCN within six months is sufficient.
No problem and all the best.
