Is there any reason you think it may lead to a reduction?

Also, I notice you have not yet rated a previous answer so I would be grateful if you could do that now.

previous answer I rated you with 4 starts, let me know what answer was not rated. well about your questions of reasons may lead to a reduction . 1. I did STATUTORY DECLARATION becouse I received the first letter of this fine on 12/08/15, and they said they sent me letters on19/05/15 , 24/06/15 and 12/08/15 with a INCREASING OF THE FINE FROM 130 POUNDS TO 195 POUNDS
2. I did the STATUTORY DECLARATION saying I did not received letters on19/05/15 , 24/06/153. THEN I COULD NOT PAY BEFORE THE 14 DAYS, to get the REDUCTED AMOUNT OF £65, because I did not receive any letter till 12 /08/15
3. the answer to my STATUTORY DECLARATION SAY : The responded filed a statutory declaration?witness statement on 18 November 15. It is ordered that the order for recovery of unpaid penalty charge be revoked. It is futher ordered that the charge certificate and the notice to owner?enforcement notice be cancelled.but it say this order does NOt cancel the original Penalty charge notice.4. then I BELIEVE, they should give me again the oportunity to PAY THE REDUCTED AMOUNT for pay before the 14 days. what do you think?

Did you get the original fine?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
as I told you, they say they sent me the enforcement notice on19/05/15 , 24/06/15 and 12/08/15 but I did not receive the first and the second, this is a shared house and somebody steal letters, I only received the enforcement letter on 12/08/15, and MY STATUTORY DECLARATION WAS THAT, I did not received the 2 first letters, BUT THE IMPORTANT IS WHAT SAY the county court to my STATUTORY DECLARATION : the charge certificate and THE NOTICE TO OWNER / ENFOCEMENT NOTICE IS CANCELED. but this order does not cancel the original penalty charge notice. THEN I UNDERSTAND THIS RESOLUTION FROM COUNTY COURT, CANCELL THE ENFORCEMENT ORDER OF 12/08/15 WHICH i RECEIVED, , CANCEL TOO THE LETTER CAMDEN COUNCIL SAY SENT ME ON 24/06/15 BUT NO THE FIRST ONE, WHAT I understand it means the 14 days I still. it is important you take note of this, this order does not cancel the original penalty charge notice, the one that say I have 14 days to pay the reduced amount.
