Fare Evasion Experts

Renowned Fare Evasion Solicitor, Samir Moftah, heads up our team.

 

Why Choose Manak for Fare Evasion?

Efficiency

We use the latest technology to assist our qualified, experienced solicitors in moving your file along as fast as we can.

Accuracy

We pride ourselves on absolute attention to detail. We appreciate the significance of moving home and work to ensure everything is executed to the highest standard.

Reviews

We encourage you to check our fantastic, transparent Google & Facebook reviews. We do not curate selected testimonials like some companies do.

Approachable

We guarantee every single file we work on is overseen by a qualified Solicitor. This is not something our competitors will offer you.

If you receive a letter or court summons from a train company for fare evasion, it is very important to seek legal advice to resolve matters as you may be fined and/or receive a criminal conviction if found guilty.

We at Manak Solicitors understand that this will be an extremely anxious time in your life, especially with the threat of a criminal conviction which can impact on your employment and family life.

Samir Moftah is an experienced fare evasion solicitor having represented clients for many years who have received correspondence from a train company or their agent threatening prosecution. Samir has successfully secured out of court settlements for countless clients and has a good working relationship with prosecutors of various train companies. He is well placed to assess your case, advise on strategy and prospects of success.

We are able to have a 15 minute free discussion to establish that we can help you and to talk you through the next steps. Should you wish to proceed, we will provide you with a fixed fee for us to negotiate with the train company in attempt to settle the matter. Should your matter be settled, this would resolve the matter without you receiving a criminal record.

We offer meetings by video or face to face.

Samir deals with all train companies but most frequently the following;

  1. South Eastern Railways
  2. Chiltern Railways
  3. Govia Thameslink
  4. Transport for London
  5. Northern Rail
  6. Transport Investigations

All cases will be dealt with personally by Samir for you which will ensure you are advised correctly and that your case is undertaken in the best possible way.

Equally, if you have been found guilty in your absence for fare evasion, we are able to assist you in re-opening a case and ensuring any conviction is set aside.

I sold my second property with Manak Solicitors this year, hassle-free client experience is a business as usual for Manak. Jas and Kirstie helped me with my case this time. All the communication was prompt, buyers solicitors queries were answered on time. We are lucky to have such a reliable conveyancing team based in Orpington. Thanks again Jas and Kirstie!!!

Jas and his team where superb throughout our recent house purchase, they kept in regular contact and gave relevant advice to our case.To add to this they went above and beyond as we were dealing with a particularly awkward vendor and solicitor on the other side of the transaction.I would recommend Manak Solicitors 100%.

I have just moved and Manak handled our sale and purchase professionally and efficiently. Jas, Natalie and the rest of the team dealt with everything that came up and it was refreshing to call/email them and always get a response back. You will not be disappointed with the service and they really do seem to care about clients vs just being another number. I would not hesitate to use Manak again and would recommend them.

I was faced with a serious fare evasion prosecution notice from Govia Thameslink, and after tearfully calling about fifteen different solicitors for advice, finally chose to go with Samir Moftah at Manak Solicitors. I will admit that at first I was skeptical because he claimed to have a 100% success rate, and I thought my case was too dire. At every step of the way, his advice was different from other solicitors: he advised me to fess up about all my offenses whereas they'd told me to hide them, he asked for details about my life that the other solicitors didn't think to include in the defense. But ultimately, he was absolutely right! He was absolutely clear, efficient, reassuring, knew exactly what he was doing, and negotiated directly with the prosecutions department at GTR to settle my case for a very reasonable amount. Samir has a close relationship with the different train companies and knows exactly how they think and how to settle. I am so glad I chose his services. I am a non-citizen in the UK and my life would have been seriously affected by a criminal record, and so I am unspeakably grateful to Samir. He is an amazing fare evasion expert! And he also worked for a very reasonable price compared to the others. Thanks so much, Samir!!!

Samir Moftah was a delight to work with, absolutely efficient, highly conscientious. Samir made a potentially complicated process relating to employment law remarkably easy, and smoothly took all my problems away. He has excellent interpersonal skills, and is gifted at translating legal rhetoric into the language or mere mortals. I would definitely work with this Solicitor again.

I simply cannot praise this firm enough. I was assisted by Jas, Natalie and Kirstie, all of whom were amazing and went out of their way at various points to ensure the least stress for us. On my purchase the other side can only be described as incompetent. Regardless of this, the team at Manak stayed calm to ensure the transaction went through before the end of June 2021.I would also add that it really did feel as though the team at Manak were doing everything they could to help. There was not a single moment during the transaction where I lost confidence in their abilities. On the contrary, I was impressed at how efficient and open they were. Not only would I use Manak again, I would recommend them to everyone. Simply put, this is what every conveyancer should be like.

I cannot recommend highly enough Manak Solicitors who we instructed to act for us when selling our flat and buying our dream home. If you want a proactive Solicitor then Jas and his team are the best there is. There was a point in time that we thought our purchase was 'dead in the water' and it was Jas the highly experienced solicitor that really pulled it out the bag and found the solution we needed. The seller's solicitors were hopeless in helping us in our time of need. If it hadn't been for Manak's forward thinking, we would not have been collecting our keys to our new home yesterday. We cannot thank them enough they were 5 star throughout the entire transaction. They come with our highest recommendation.

I have been very impressed with the conveyancing service Manak's have undertaken for me. Good clear and efficient communication throughout and when urgent action was required at the last minute, Jas and Natalie were very swift to act. Funds from the transaction were required urgently and they seemed to arrive in my account virtually instantly once it had completed. A very impressive performance by the whole team.

I have used Manak Solicitors for conveyancing a few times now and each time their service has been second to none. I felt like I was their only client with the speed of responses to questions and nothing ever seemed like to much trouble. I have always been able to speak with my solicitor (Jas) and his assistant Natalie who are both exceptional! I have recommended Manak Solicitors to friends of which 2 have used Jas for their conveyancing and they were really pleased with the service and will continue to use Manaks in the future. I highly recommend them!

We have used Manak twice now when buying and selling houses and both times have been very impressed. They recently handled our quite complex sale getting us from offer to completion in good time for the stamp duty deadline which was far from easy!They are responsive, engaged with their clients, pragmatic and professional. And guided us through the process exceptionally well. Would highly recommend to others and would definitely use again.

This is the second time working with Manak Solicitors and Jas and i'm certainly glad we chose them on both occasions. Conveyancing for Leasehold property is not always plain sailing, but Jas and Lorna maintained consistent communication and professionalism throughout.We were eager, as i'm sure many many others were, to complete within the stamp duty window and i'm pleased to say with Manak's help we did!I was also impressed to see that their website and payment system have also had significant improvements, which gave me confidence from the start. I also appreciated the 'guide' on the conveyancing process, very helpful!I'd happily recommend their services to anyone looking to instruct Solicitors / conveyancers.

My wife and I decided to use Manak Solicitors after seeing so many positive reviews, as we had had very poor experiences in the past with other conveyancing solicitors. Manak Solicitors do charge a premium over some others, but are worth every penny - you get what you pay for.I am pleased to say that Jas and his team delivered on all expectations and promises and worked closely with me to get our sale and our purchase over the line, oftentimes working out of hours as necessary to get us completed on our target date. Unfortunately our solicitor used for the purchase of our previous property, who is no longer trading, had left our deeds and documentation in a horrendous state, but Jas managed to get all of the matters resolved to allow us to proceed.I can't thank you all enough for your efforts and would not hesitate in recommending you to friends and family.

Jas at Manak worked tirelessly and with the boldness it required to get our sale over the line, within 7 weeks, at very busy period of sales. I do think that the entire property sales and buying process needs to enter the 21st century. It's full of inefficiencies, subjectivity and analogue communication. Manak demonstrated that they can work within this system with agility and tenacity. To note: one of the key requirements for choosing a solicitor was diversity within their senior management team. Take a look at Manak's Team page. It's quite different to most other similar solicitors.

We. Are. Experts.

Samir Moftah

Fare Evasion Solicitor

Can you get a criminal record for Fare Evasion?

 

If you are found guilty by a court or plead guilty, you will have a criminal conviction. However, not all train companies rely on the same laws to prosecute you, which can impact on you differently.

You will normally receive a letter from the train company asking for you to set out your mitigation. If they proceed with a prosecution, you will receive a court summons by post. This will either be a single justice procedure notice where you will have 21 days to plead guilty or not guilty, or you will receive a hearing date to attend court.

If you are prosecuted by a train company outside of TFL, such as Southeastern Railways or Govia Thameslink, you are likely to be charged under Regulation of Railways Act 1889. If you are found to be guilty of the offence or you plead guilty, this will give you a criminal record. This will appear on a DBS check both standard and enhanced.

If you are prosecuted by TFL, you are likely to be charged under railway byelaws. If you are found guilty or plead guilty, this will not appear on a standard DBS check but can appear on an enhanced check.

In most professional vocations, it will be a term in your contract of employment or staff handbook that you must disclose any criminal convictions. This will also be a requirement under most code of conducts if you have a regulatory membership. Should you disclose this, disciplinary proceedings are likely to proceed with a charge of gross misconduct which could result in dismissal.

Manak Solicitors can assist you in avoiding a conviction to minimise any impact on your life. You will find us to be understanding, have an eye for detail and well placed to consider your case and the best approach to take.

Contact Samir Moftah, our very experienced fare evasion solicitor who has assisted countless clients over many years.

 

Is Fare Evasion a crime?

 

The short answer is yes.

Fare evasion is where an individual does not purchase a ticket for a journey or uses a card belonging to another or a discount card to which they are not entitled to. The most common scenarios we as lawyers come across is misusing a freedom pass, misusing a student discount card or only paying for part of a journey.

When you are a stopped by a travel inspector, they have the power to caution and interview you at the scene. If you do not comply with their requests, they are able to contact the British Transport Police to arrest you. They will confirm your identification.

You do not need to answer any questions apart from identifying yourself if you do not wish to do so, however, it is often best to comply with the process and be co-operative.

The Railway company do have the powers to summons you to a criminal court for not having a valid ticket. This will be a prosecution carried out by them in a Magistrates Court. If found guilty by a court, you can be fined up to a £1,000 and receive a criminal record.

It is important to take fare evasion seriously as this can have a big impact on your home and work life.

We recommend that clients contact us as soon as they receive a letter or summons from the train company so that we can assist. We will be able to analyse and set out your legal position clearly, assess your mitigation and recommend a way forward in order to resolve your matter.

If an out of court settlement is agreed, this will avoid a criminal conviction and record. There is a real need to consider the train companies prosecution policy and assessing how your circumstances fit the policy. We will explore in depth with you your circumstances so that your best case is argued to obtain you a favourable outcome.

How long does a criminal record for Fare Evasion last?

 

To have a criminal record for fare evasion, you must be found guilty of an offence or plead guilty at Court. This is done in various forms such as responding to a single justice procedure notice or pleading guilty in person at a court hearing.

Different rail providers bring different charges under different laws depending on the circumstances. There are two most common laws used when prosecuting that we say time and time again.

If you are charged under Regulation of Railways Act 1889 and are found guilty, you will have a criminal record for a year if you receive the typical sentence which would be a fine.

How long a conviction remains on your record is governed by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, within England and Wales.

This will appear on a standard and enhanced DBS check.

If you are found guilty or plead guilty under a Railway Byelaw, this will result in a criminal record for a year if you have received a fine only. A Byelaw does not appear on standard DBS checks but can appear on an enhanced check.

Most employers or regulatory bodies will require disclosure of a conviction in any event which can result in loss of employment or loss of the right to practise within certain careers.

When applying for a new job, you must carefully consider the question asked of you. Most employers will not require spent convictions to be disclosed, but in certain professions they will be required.

We would urge you to contact us to help you avoid a criminal record. You will find us sympathetic, knowledgeable and proactive. We will analyse your case and put together the best strategy for your case to give you the best chance of avoiding a conviction.
