My whole argument is that no levy is in place, so no removal fee is applicable. My car belongs to finance company, so charge not applicable. their response is this "A levy is not applicable on a warrant" and that "the ATR can be applied providing residency is confirmed". Are they lying, or have i not researched thoroughly enough? I know ¬£96 isn't a fortune but the principle remains the same. I feel i'm being ripped off. Thanks in advance.

I have looked at the circumstances surrounding the Penalty Charge Notice and your case was passed to Jacobs bailiff on 27 February 2013 as a warrant had been issued to recover the outstanding payment of ¬£82 from Northampton County Court.
Once the case has been passed to the bailiff and recovery action has commenced customers must liaise with the bailiff on how payment is to be made. Whilst I understand you paid the Council separately, as the bailiff has incurred charges in the recovery process they are entitled to recoup their costs. Any queries relating to the bailiff costs or their team members must be directed to Jacobs and not the Council.
It would not be appropriate for the Council to ask the bailiff to place your case on hold as they are entitled to pursue their costs as part of the court warrant.
