I've done some reading but it's hard finding the answer.

 

Since private companies can't fine you, what realistically happens if you just ignore them? Do they have any mechanism for forcing payment? I understand they could sue under contract law, but what are the odds of that?

Thanks. I'm asking vaguely because I don't know the particulars

- someone I know had a postal charge from a private company.

I think it was stopping in a car park without a ticket.

 

Some companies have more ability than others to make you pay if you ignore them?

 

I don't know the who, why and where - just curious to know what they have to work with.

Generally speaking with these "speculative invoices" it is not good advice to simply ignore them.

Cant really offer any more than that without information on the issue, if you can get that then post up, there are a few on here who are the canines cashews with parking matters

I will try and get the full details, but the question remains - what will they do? What can they do? Sue for breach of contract?

They can and often do issue a claim through the courts, but, if dealt with correctly from the outset, this need not be the case

There is currently a big flurry of court claims at the moment as the parkingt co's that previously did nothing are now under the impression that the Beavis result is a licence to print money.

 

Beavis only covered a very specific range of events and said that the parking co doesnt have to show a aschedule of loss, just that its charge not be "unconscionable".

 

This is not the same as actually creating a contract and many companies that quoted Beavis recently lost big time because they didnt have a contract to enforce.

 

Parking Eye seems to tie things up better than most companies but even they are sloppy and dont bother to renew contracts when they expire but just carry on and fail to apply for planning permission for thei cameras and signs and when caught out tell lies ( they know from previous experience they are in the wrong) in the hope someone will believe them on the day.

they do think that it you do not respond to their solicitors final threaqtogram then you wont respond to a claim form and they win by default.

 

That is their business plan because if everyone who got a claim form defended they would run up such a huge legal and admin bill they would soon go bust, even if they won all of the cases.

 

Another reason they like to add on "collection fees" and all other sorts of rubbish, made up amounts. If they didnt then they would just be covering their exact costs and as we know, that isnt what they are about.

 

It would be more than interesting to see an actual invoice from one of the pet solicitors for the work done as I bet these seemingly fixed fees of £54 for a letter arent the actual amount paid as they dont seem to be viable in a matter of recovering £80-100.

 

Of course, if the solicitors were underwriting the claims and then trousering some of the monies afterwards that would be Champerty and Maintenance, which is unlawful and we all know that parking co's and their solicitors like Glastones and BW are paragons of virtue and would never stoop to such things.
