Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Do you know whether its private or council?
Do you know when they got the Court order?
Can you ask the Court. That is because if it was granted more than 6 years ago, they need permission from the Court to enforce.
Or you can apply to make a statutory declaration. This is where the Court sends you forms and you complete them. They go before a Judge where you say you knew nothing about it.
The enforcement will then be suspended. But sadly you would be out of time to appeal the original ticket.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No it would be the County Court that issued the original enforcement
Usually this is Northampton Traffic Enforcement Centre
Does that clarify?
As I indicated above -
This is where the Court sends you forms and you complete them. They go before a Judge where you say you knew nothing about it. The enforcement will then be suspended
Does that assist?
Its not something I have ever come across before.
Yes it is legal. There has been a Court order with liability, so they can ask for it within a week.
There would not have been a hearing, it would have been dealt with on the papers
Of course I can imagine. That's why you need to make the statutory declaration
If they got the original Court order within 6 years of the parking offence, then no
But even if its after 2015 it does not matter, they can apply at any time. They just need to obtain the original order within 6 years.
The original order must be within 6 years of offence.
Then once they get it they have a further 6 years to enforce, failing which they need permission
No, none whatsoever
