I would appreciate a little bit of advice.
I parked in an NCP car park on a quiet Sunday afternoon and did not pay the parking charge due to the machine not working.
When presented, many months later with a £100 parking charge, I appealed and they turned me down, without even addressing my specific concerns.
I have just now taken my appeal to POPLA, but am not confident that they will help.
From what I have read online, it seems that these NCP people are chancing their arm by asking me to pay £100 charge.
If it goes against me, I will be tempted to send them a cheque for £3 to cover the fee and tell them to go forth and multiply.
Am I correct in saying that they are unlikely to start civil procedures against me?
I would welcome views on this, please.
Hi all - this doesn't seem to be a common problem, so any advice would be appreciated. The first I knew of a parking notice (PCN) was a threatening letter from Debt Recovery Plus. It implies they are a debt collector, but they are simply used by Parking Eye to leverage muscle and try to frighten people. I never got any letter from ParkingEye: not the initial PCN, nor a Keeper Liability Notice, nor a Final reminder. Nope! Straight to DR+ nasty letter an astonishing 76 days after the reported event. (ironically all their post arrives successfully). This has meant 1) I am outside the appeal window (and ParkingEye have confirmed I can go jump) 2) I therefore have no verification number to go to POPLA appeal. I would consider conceding as life is too short except I am an authorised user of this parking space. It is simply that on that day, I forgot to log my registration at Hotel Reception. Normally - a PCN is issued and my work collages simply pop across to the hotel who cancel it with ParkingEye in the first few days after issue. The Hotel in question won't action my DR+ letter as they say that their contract is with ParkingEye AND (wrongly) that it is at the court stage. It is, of course, not at the court stage because these silly letters from these Debt Agencies are designed to mislead and obfuscate the facts. Has anyone had a similar experience and success appealing through some route or other? I will be ever grateful they want to mug me unfairly for £170 because they failed to get me a timely PCN.
We are in the process of selling our house and the buyers solicitor has asked for proof of work that we had carried out which included damp proofing and cavity wall ties , i have the original quote but cannot find the guarantees as this work was carried out a very long time ago, so i contacted the company that did the work to see if they still have record of the work which they do and were more than happy to supply me with copies for ......£120 😳as you can imagine i said thanls but no thanks even my solocitor was gobsmacked is this the going rate ??
