Hi all

 

I recently parked in Dunelm Mill car park limit of 2 hours, I was 6 hours. I've now received a letter from TPS asking for £90 for overstaying.

 

The picture shows my car and numberplate coming into the car park and does show my car leaving (I know it's mine cos of something on the car) but the number plate isn't shown on the exit.

 

Am I right in thinking that I can ignore this letter and any future demands that they send my way? I have until tomorrow to pay up if I dont want it to increase by £40 if my understanding is wrong.

Hi

 

this is what they sent to me (hopefully something is attached)

 

but it gives me:

date of notice

charge notice ref no

vehicle reg make model colour

date and time in/out

total time

 

It tells me on the back how to appeal and

 

gives me an address

 

but no popla number that I can see.

 

It just says itf

 

I appeal and it's rejected they can provide me with full details on how to appeal your notice through POPLa.

 

thanksM

Hi

Please appeal. This will cost them when you take the rejection to POPLA. You notice I say 'when'. This is because TPS will reject your appeal. If they did allow it, they wouldn't make their profit from you.

 

The £90 charge is an unreasonable charge as they include costs that cannot be claimed for (signage, uniforms, cameras etc.) They can only claim actual losses and if it was a free car park, what losses have they incurred?

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Current best advice is to appeal the notice from TPS as the RK,

as that is presumably how they have address you in the postal demand.

 

If they have addressed you as the driver then write back and inform them that you are unable to assist them as addressed.

 

Appeal on the grounds that the charge does not represent their losses for a free car park and thus are an unlawful penalty.

 

they will undoubtedly tell you that they reject this appeal (their entire business is based upon getting money for nothing)

they should give you a POPLA ref number and you can appeal to the adjudicator.

 

This costs TPS money and the result is binding on them but not on yourself.

 

Dont admit you were the driver as you are not being pursued as such,

save that for further argument if they want to try thheir luck.

I can't just ignore this and it'll go away?

 

I need to appeal on grounds:-

I can not help then identify the driver?

- the charge is not reflective on their losses for a free car park and thus are an unlawful penalty

- as the car park is free,

the charge does not reflect any losses they would have made as parking is free

 

Thanks for your helps all

How does the letter address you? as registered keeper or driver? If as the driver just tell them that you were not the driver at the time (and then they can waste more time and money trying to follow the procedure correctly)

If they have written to you as RK then omit the part about the driver details and just use the other points

so they dont know if you are the RK or a named individual- they cant have it both ways as the timings for service of documents are very different.

I would delay appealing and send them a letter asking them on what basis are they contacting you as they dont seen to know. Then let them start all over again in the permitted time if they can and I bet they cant.

Dont admit being either the driver or the RK at this point, make them get it right. When you get another letter come back here and tell us the dates it was posted and arrived with you.
