I have been reading all of the threads on this forum and a few others for a few hours now, so I have a general picture of what is going on (i.e. low chance of getting to court, they need to prove the illegal parking damaged > business etc.).

 

However, I see that all the "IGNORE" words on this forum have a link on them, and when I hover I get a message telling me to actually write to the CPP (see below). Any ideas of why this change in attitude? Should we start replying as the message indicates?

 

If you are considering ignoring a letter from a private parking company demanding money for some alleged parking incident - you should understand that this may not be the best course of action.

The best thing to do will be to reply with a brief letter denying that any money is owed at all. Ask the PPC if they have authority from their client to bring any legal action against you and are they entitled to bring a legal action in their own name.

Finally tell them that depending on their answers, you may be willing to consider their demand but you require a breakdown of the figure they are demanding and an explanation as to how the sum claimed represents their administrative costs.

If you reply to the PPC in this way, they will then understand that you are up for a fight, that you know your rights and that there will be no chance of an easy default victory if they decide to take you to court.

Write only once and then do not respond to any other demand unless they reply to you in full.

We think that this is better than merely ignoring them

 

PS: I suspect some CPP bought advertising on the site for the word "ignore" ?

If only that were the case, lol. It's more an alternative opinion, It's entirely your choice as to which you do.. The common theme between both is not to pay them a penny

Personally when I got a couple of these so called fines I ignored them and they gave up. There is a school of thought that by writing this one letter, if the parking company are stupid enough to try taking you to court, you can show that you have been more than reasonable by asking for evidence that you owe anything. It might stop them sending you any more.

 

You have options but it's your choice what you want to do - if anything!

It's misleading when it mentions "administrative costs.". The law states that the only thing that can be claimed is the loss suffered by the landowner plus the small cost of recovering that loss. What can't be claimed is the day-to-day running costs and expenses of the parking company. These would have to be found by the parking company even if they do not issue any parking tickets at all. Anyway the law states the loss must be suffered by the landowner , not by the parking company.

Thank you for the advice! I decided to keep a low profile as my parking ticket involves overstaying for 40 minutes at the local shopping center (3h max stay). I understand that PPC rarely go to court, and I have the impression they will try to go after cases they have a chance to win (like that poor fellow who got 7 tickets x 70 pounds each in a week).

Best course of action I found was to contact DVLA for details of when they asked for my own details from them. Rules are that they MUST do this IMMEDIATELY according to the statute book. In my case 16 days after the event is not what I call immediate by any stretch of the imagination. Looking forward to a day in Court if they ever get that far. DVLA are very helpful but it takes about a month for a reply but once armed with this knowledge I am happy to go to ANY court they choose but I doubt they will do it but gives me peace of mind.
