As an enforcement company, Newlyn PLC is unable to make any decision about a person's liability for a debt. Only the original creditor can make such decisions so any queries about your liability will need to be raised with the Local Authority directly. Newlyn PLC and our Enforcement Agents are obliged to continue with enforcement of the full sum owed until payment in full is received or the Local Authority asks us to stop enforcement.
If you have received contact from us about someone who no longer lives at your address, please complete the form here so we can update our records.
There are two names on the Liability Order because you are Joint and Severally Liable for the debt. This means that either of you can be pursued for the full amount of the debt, not that it is split between you. We can continue enforcement action against you until the full amount of the debt has been paid.
As an enforcement company, Newlyn PLC is unable to make any decision about a person's liability for a debt. You should consider contacting the Local Authority to provide evidence of the vehicle sale (proof of sale, cancellation of insurance, and DVLA confirmation of the date you were no longer the Registered Keeper of the vehicle). It may be too late for the Local Authority to assist you and in this case, you should consider if an application can be made to the Traffic Enforcement Centre https://www.gov.uk/appeal-against-a-penalty-charge-notice/court-order.
We are acting on the instructions of our client and as an enforcement company, we are obliged to continue enforcement unless the Local Authority tells us to stop. To prevent further action, you should contact DVLA and get written confirmation from them that you have never been the owner of the vehicle to which this debt relates. This should then be sent to the Local Authority.
Please visit the Parking Services website page for the Council that issued the Penalty Charge Notice (PCN). Some Local Authorities also allow you to view evidence online at viewmypcn.co.uk. You will need to enter the PCN number and your vehicle registration mark.
Depending on the type of debt you owe, the creditor would have written to you at your last known address on multiple occasions, issuing the legally required Notices and Demands. If your debt relates to a Penalty Charge Notice, they would have obtained your address from the DVLA. For Council Tax and Non-Domestic Rates, correspondence would have been issued to your last known address as required by legislation. The case has now been passed to Newlyn PLC due to a Court Order being issued. Please contact us as soon as possible to discuss payment and avoid further fees or enforcement action.
It would be very unlikely that Newlyn PLC has been asked to enforce a debt that has been paid already. Please check that the Penalty Charge Number or Council Reference number is the same as the payment you have already made. For Council Tax and Non-Domestic Rates, you will need to check which financial year the debt you paid was in relation to. If you still believe you have paid this debt, please contact us with proof of the payment you have made so we can review this.
Once a Local Authority instructs Newlyn PLC to enforce an unpaid debt, we are obliged to continue with enforcement until payment is received in full or goods are removed and sold at auction to discharge the debt. The Local Authority will have written to you on multiple occasions and given you the chance to pay them, before obtaining the Court Order and sending this to us for enforcement. Please contact us to discuss payment and avoid further enforcement action or additional fees being applied to your debt.
Once a Warrant of Control has been issued, the time for appealing to the Local Authority has passed. You can consider if an application can be made to the Traffic Enforcement Centre www.gov.uk/appeal-against-a-penalty-charge-notice/court-order. We are sorry but until we are instructed by the Traffic Enforcement Centre to say you have made an application to them, enforcement action will continue.
Unless we receive direct instructions from the Local Authority to request that we place our file on hold, we are obliged to continue with enforcement action.
