We are the owner / occupiers of an apartment in London that, under the lease, includes the right to a car space in the building.

 

The property managers use a permit system which requires all cars parked in the building to display an annually renewable permit.

 

They employ a private parking company to monitor the parking in the building.

 

We recently returned from an overseas holiday to find that we had received five parking chargelink3.gif Notice over a two week period totalling £500 for not displaying a current permit.

 

The permits had expired during our absence and the property manager had not advised us by email, as they have in the past, that we needed to take action to renew the permits by a given date.

 

We have asked the property manager to request the parking company to waive the parking chargelink3.gif Notices but they have refused to do so.

 

We have appealed the fines to POPLA and that process is still in progress.

 

The parking company are now threatening court proceedings or the use of a debt collection agency if we do not pay within 14 days.

 

We now find ourselves in a situation from which we currently see no alternative other than to pay a private parking company £500 in parking chargelink3.gif Notices for parking our car in the building carpark in which we have the legal right to park.

 

It seems absurd and very unfair to us but we do not know where we stand legally and hence this request for help.

 

Thanks

My terminology may be wrong. They refer to it as a Parking Charge Notice.

 

Within the definitions section of the lease it says "parking space" and then in the schedule there is a paragraph that gives us the exclusive right to park one car in the parking space. Specific parking spaces are not allocated to the individual, just that we have the right to a parking space on a particular level of the building.

Lease trumps made up invoice!

 

They wont go near court.

 

The company concerned is a fairly large, London based parking company that deals with several apartment buildings. I'm assuming, maybe incorrectly, that they will carry their threats through.

Lease trumps made up invoices

they don't own the land

the land owners do..

you have it in your lease so that trumps any invoices they spew out.

My concern is that the landowners, through the property managers, refuse to take any action.

 

 

They argue that the 'fines' should be paid as we did not follow the landlord's requirement

to renew our annual permit and there are plenty of signs to indicate that parking without a valid permit

is liable to lead to an infringement notice.

 

I cannot argue against that.

We were aware that an annual permit is required,

despite the fact that our lease provides us with the legal right to a parking space.

 

 

Unfortunately, we were away at the time a rote letter was placed in our mailbox advising us that the permit had to be renewed.

As a result, we were unable to comply with the landlord's requirements to have a valid, up-to-date permit.

As already stated, your lease trumps an invoice from a PPC.

 

Park Direct UK Ltd are not ' a fairly large ' PPC, but are in fact a particularly dodgy one. They changed their name from Park Direct Ltd due to their particularly unsavoury tactics.

They have now moved tothe IPC since your event, which sums them up really...

 

They issued no court proceedings in 2014, none in 2015, and have yet to in 2016...
