I sold a Rover 200 back in march 2003, and the new owner drove through a bus lane after. Transport for london contacted me, as i was still showing as the registered keeper so after checking with the dvla i wasnt and the registration change had taken place. anyway i got back to transport for london who insisted i was and had to pay the fine, or send them a letter which was signed by someone from the court saying that i wasnt the registered keeper. i did this.
All sorted i though
in november 2004 bayliffs came knocking on the door, requesting a total of £500 due to an unpaid fine
anyway after much arguing and so forth i paid, and got a reciept. to claim the money back i had to get an "official" letter from the dvla stating i was not the owner of the car at the time in question. ive got this now and want to send it to transport for london with a note to the effect of :
"here's your bit of paper, give me back my £500"
Can someone in the know put this into proper legal talk for me. i want it to have as much impact as possible.
Also, can i give them 14days to pay?? and claim for loss of earnings for the time i had to come home from work becuase of bayliffs?
Sorry for the long post, but i just wana get this sorted. £500 is too much to loose out on, but more so the principal!!
