Have you recently received a County Court Judgment (CCJ) for a Parking charge notice that you were not aware of until you went to apply for a mortgage or credit card?
With many companies now using Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) to issue tickets directly to motorists you often are not aware that you have received a parking fine until a later date. When a default County Court Judgement is received by a motorist it is often because:
1. They ignored letters from the court about the claim being made against them
2. The letters were sent to the wrong address
Summerfield Browne Solicitors are frequently instructed in relation to CCJ’s for unpaid parking charges and have recently been successful in applying to set aside a CCJ issued on behalf of Parking eye.
It is worth remembering that creditors (such as banks and loan companies) use this information to determine whether or not to give loans or credit and a CCJ will appear on your credit history and the Record of Judgments for 6 years if it is not set aside.
Summerfield Browne have offices in Leicester, Birmingham, London, Oxford, Cambridge and Market Harborough.
