Was the order for recovery issued correctly?

An order for recovery can only issued by the Traffic Enforcement Centre and it is sent after the Charge Certificate.

So it’s an important document, However, many councils issue this document incorrectly and therefore, we can help you challenge it correctly.


Here are situations when a order for recovery must be cancelled:


  • You did not receive a penalty charge notice
  • You appealed to the council and are waiting for a response
  • You sent an appeal to the tribunal and are waiting for a response

Even if you received a penalty charge but forgot to appeal it, we can still help you challenge the order for recovery and negotiate a lower rate with the council.

In these scenarios, the council have to cancel the order for recovery right away. If they do not cancel it, they would be acting illegally but you don’t have to pay yet.

We can negotiate with the council to settle the penalty charge notice at the lower amount, in London, this would save you at least £130.

Can The Council send bailiffs?

The Council cannot and should not send bailiffs at order for recovery stage.

If the order for recovery is not paid, then the case will proceed to order for recovery stage.

At order for recovery stage, we guarantee to get it cancelled if you apply within 21 days after it is issued. If you apply within this time, then the bailiff enforcement will not start and you have no need to worry.

Even if bailiffs are engaged, you simply need to follow our Order for Recovery guide to learn how to stop bailiff enforcement.

What happens if The TEC reject the appeal?

If your appeal is refused, you simply need to wait for a document called “Order For Recovery” from the Traffic Enforcement Centre.

We have covered the order for recovery process in our Order For Recovery Guide.

Our guidance and tools are designed to save you money, so please follow the instructions we provide..
