  • I am dealing with a debt management company- what should I do?

    If you are dealing with a debt management company, please pass a copy of our letter to them and we will deal with them directly. We would appreciate you contacting us and letting us know if you are with a debt management company so that we can update our records accordingly.

  • I don’t think I owe this debt, what should I do?

    If you believe that you do not owe the outstanding balance, please contact us to enable us to investigate.

  • What happens if I ignore your letters?

    We appreciate that managing your debts can be difficult and want to help reach a resolution with you. It is important that you contact us so that we can discuss the matter and understand your circumstances.

    If you do not contact us, we may be instructed to commence litigation action.

  • What is a 'Letter Before Claim'?

    A letter before claim informs you of our intention to initiate Court Proceedings if we do not hear from you. If you have received a letter before claim, please contact us to enable us to reach a resolution and avoid any Court action.

  • I have received a County Court Claim pack, what should I do?

    You will need to respond to the County Court claim pack within 14 days of the date the claim pack is deemed as served. There are a number of options available to you and further information can be found in the guidance notes which accompany the claim form.

    If you are in a position to pay the full amount of the claim, within 14 days of the claim served date, the claim will be discontinued. The Court can also offer assistance on the Court procedures, and guidance on how to complete the forms. You can also contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau for free independent legal advice.

  • Will a County Court Judgment affect my credit file?

    A County Court Judgment will appear on your credit file for 6 years after the Judgment date. If you are able to pay the full amount of the Judgment in cleared funds within one month of the Judgment date, it will be removed from the Register of Judgments, Orders and Fines.

    If the amount of the Judgment is paid after one month of the Judgment date, you can have the Judgment marked as satisfied and obtain a certificate of satisfaction from the Court. However, the Judgment will remain on your credit file for 6 years after the Judgment date .

  • Can a County Court Judgment be enforced against me?

    Yes, there are a number of ways a County Court Judgment can be enforced including:- Attachment of Earnings Order – this is an Order requiring your employer to deduct a specified amount of money from your wages on a weekly or monthly basis.

    High Court Writ/Warrant of Control – this involves the Bailiff/Sheriff attending your property and they may seize assets which they will subsequently sell use the proceeds of sale to settle the Judgment.

    Charging Order – A Final Charging Order secures the debt against an asset, normally residential premises where you hold a beneficial interest. Providing there are sufficient funds available, upon sale of the property, the debt will ordinarily be discharged.

    Bankruptcy - you are declared bankrupt, all of your assets will belong to the Trustee in Bankruptcy. You will not be able to apply for credit and you will be unable to act as a director of a company.

  • Do you record telephone calls?

    Yes, all telephone calls are recorded.

  • The person named on the letter does not live at this address

    We would appreciate it if you could contact us on 01926 758101 or email us at support@wrighthassall.co.uk to let us know.

Parking Charge Notice FAQs

  • What is a Parking Charge Notice?

    A Parking Charge Notice (PCN) is issued to a vehicle parked in breach of the Terms and Conditions of parking on private land. This is not to be confused with Penalty Charge Notice. PCN’s can be affixed to a vehicle or sent through the post.

    The notice issued to the driver of the vehicle explains the time frames for payment, how payment can be made and also how to appeal the parking charge. Both payments and appeals can be made by post or online.

  • What is a Penalty Notice?

    If you have received a Penalty Notice, it is because the private land in question is being managed under Railway Byelaws; the Protection of Freedoms Act does not apply in this instance, and the Owner of the vehicle is liable for the penalty.

  • Are parking charges enforceable?

    Yes. A judgment handed down by the Supreme Court (Parking Eye v Beavis) was handed down on 04 November 2015; the judgment confirms parking regimes which impose charges where motorists overstay or breach the terms of their contractual licence to park are enforceable charges.

  • What if I was not the driver at the time?

    If you were not driving the vehicle when the PCN was issued, you will have been given the opportunity to transfer liability to the driver within 28 days of receiving the PCN.

    If you did not do this, you will remain liable as the keeper of the vehicle, and we cannot consider transferring liability to a third party once we have been instructed to collect the balance.

  • Can I appeal once the PCN has been passed to Wright Hassall?

    No. Once the Parking Charge Notice reaches Wright Hassall, the time for appealing the PCN has passed, and we have been instructed by our Client to collect the outstanding balance in full.

    We cannot consider any forms of appeals at this stage. Once the PCN has been passed to Wright Hassall, the time for appealing to POPLA (Independent Body) has also passed. Please do not contact us to appeal your PCN, as this will not be considered.

  • What happens if I do not pay my PCN?

    If you choose to ignore your PCN or refuse to pay, our client may instruct us to take legal action, which entails the client issuing a claim, which could result in you having a County Court Judgement issued against you, if successful. You will remain liable for the outstanding balance plus court costs.
