CAN AN ENFORCEMENT OFFICER CLAMP A VEHICLE NOT OWNED BY THE PERSON THEY ARE PURSUING?


I have received letters from Reading Council regarding a PCN for a person who is not known to me, and has never lived at this address. I have written to tell the Council, and provided phographic evidence of the person, and his address, after extensive enquiries with a van hire company. Still, Reading Council are sending Bailiffs to MY home. How do I proceed?

You are not responsible for someone else’s debts and if anyone knocks on your door asking for someone you do not know then all you can do is tell them that this is the case and ask them to leave. If needed you could provide proof of your identity and show some information to prove who does live in your property and you may also need to show them details of the ownership of the vehicle. If you have already identified that the person is not known to you and has never lived at your address then you can raise a complaint with the council if you wish to do so.
