I had a private parking company give me a ticket as my card

This answer was rated:

I had a private parking company give me a ticket as my card was not displayed correctly. It was only £30 if I paid within 24hrs and doubles up longer i wait. I challenged it but they took 7 days to get back to me. They rejected the claim but then requested I pay £90. I challenged it again but no response i was then transferred to a debt collection agency. I challenged them no response for 30 days. Bounced ro another and another. Eventually got through to an agency and my hill was around £300+ they said if I pay in full I will not get a CCJ. So at this point I gave up and paid. I didn't receive a confirmation of payment and dont have a record of the conversation either. Can anything be done or leave it for 7 years. This has stopped me from getting a mortgage bank card and form contracts etc please advise

Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

Did you pay before or after the CCJ?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Paid before CCJ

ok. Did you file a defence saying you had paid?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
It shows paid on my credit report but it's still on file do I need to to that?

Did you pay the fine before you had the court issue.

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
I dont recall all I remember i paid a debt Collection agency and they said if I pay you want get a CCJ

Ok - so have you got a CCJ?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Yes most definitely but shows paid

Ok. So why didnt you file a defence saying you had paid it?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Didn't realise until very late and to completely honest didn't know I could. Could you advise
Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Also I paid more than shown on file

Ok, so you do have a CCJ.

Did you pay before it was issued?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
Yes was paid before hand but looks like it was still filed

Ok - then you need to get a letter from the Claimant to confirm this.

Once you have that you can get a certificate of CANCELLATION from the Court.

Send this to:


Then it will be removed all together.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
