I need some help please.

I live in a block of flats with private parking, electric gates.

When my husband came back home one morning our parking space was occupied

and he parked in a different space without checking if the parking permit was displayed.

As you can imagine I have received a penalty from OPC.

I wrote to them on the 25/03/2015 asking to provide a copy of the contract

and evidence that they are entitled to receive the sum claimed.

I have received a threat letter yesterday that they will provide those documents to the County Court, as they will proceed further.

Right now I am a bit scared that a CCJ will be issued in my name.

Please can you help?

Shall I pay the £100?

No, No and thrice NO!


As a tenant, you have supremacy of contract no matter what OPC might like to claim. And last year, Observices Parking Consultancy Limited took the grand total of absolutely no one to court. So that's probably an empty threat too.



Write back to them (as Recorded Keeper) demanding a POPLA code....


Something very simple such as "As you have rejected my appeal, give me my POPLA Code"



Unless of course there's already a 10 digit POPLA code contained somewhere in one of these letters?



Don't be too worried about a CCJ, there are a few hoops that they'd have to jump through (plus they'd have to actually win at court) before you get anywhere near that stage.

We could use your help

Thank you for your replies. They haven't used the word penalty, my bad. It is a parking notice served. I had a look through my tenancy contract and there is nothing to say about any parking spaces allocated, but I do have an OPC parking permit for display. I will get in touch today with the management of the building for some advise.

Do not get in touch with them, let them issue a notice to keeper and make them waste their time and money chasing you for nothing. Anything you say will be used against you so make them set out their stall first before you respond. They have to issue the NTK between 29 and 56 days after the date of the event. It is common for companies to get this wrong so let them amke their mistakes and capitalise on them.
