    Hi,

    The vehicle in question received a PCN on windscreen, in a private, permit only car park. I appealed due to poor signage, to the only address given, a Box No. even though the PCN stated "do not appeal if the offence occurred". I received no reply but then received a NTK from a debt collection company, ( in which the town where it happened was misspelt) and I appealed again with no reply. I then received a letter saying that they are advising their client to instigate immediate legal proceedings. I have proof that both appeals were received. Does anyone know if they are operating lawfully, and what would be the best course of action.

    So have you identified the driver in the appeals? how long ago was the appeal, more than 35 days? You have to receive a NTK from the parking compnay no9t a debt collector. How long after the parking did the NTK take to get to you?

      Hi Ostell, thanks for your reply. I have not identified the driver, and the NTK was dated 26/6/18 and received 29/6/18. The PCN was issued on 3/5/18 and my original appeal was dated 14/5/18, but they only signed for it as received on 30/5/18. A copy of the first appeal was sent again after receipt of the NTK. Posted on 10/7/18 and received by them on 12/7/18.

        Edit your first post so that the identity of the driver cannot be inferred, The driver received a NTD

        Who is the parking company and who are the debt collectors?

        With a Notice to Driver the Notice to Keeper has to be received within 56 days. I calculate that you received the notice on day 57 and therefore there can be no liability as the keeper. Could someone check my calculations please. The legislation is POFA 8 (4) & (5)

        Could you check that your details were requested from the DVLA ? As they had your address they may not have bothered to get your details from the DVLA, saving 2.50, and hence cannot hold the keeper liable. I believe the email address is SubjectAccess.Requests@dvla.gsi.gov.uk Give the dates of the NTD and the date you received the NTK as the search dates.
