The claimant claims £85 for the PCN, £60.00 contractual costs pursuant to the contract and PCN terms and conditions, together with statutory interest of £12.40 pursuant to s69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at 8.00% per annum continuing at £0,03 per day.
Value of the claim: £232.40
I sent a SAR to Local Parking Security Ltd who initially refused but have today sent photographs of my car parked. We did park in the car park and did not exceed the 2 hour limit. They are claiming that we went off-site but have no evidence to say that we did.
We assumed that this was an error and ignored the calls and letters from the company but have now received this. My husband did speak to them on the phone and explained that we went to a food outlet on the site but they were not interested.
I made a claim on line directly to Amex on the deadline day. I supplied them with all the relevant information, and I got an email back by return on the same day, acknowledging my claim.
Since then I have not received anything from them.
They had a note on their site about a high number of claims due to the deadline, so there may be a delay, but this long?
Do you think I should just sit tight and wait?
On my clear score report there doesn't seem to be any date of default noted, nor can I see where that might appear.
When they responded to my CCA and CPR requests they didn't give me a default date either.
So, what happens now? Is it likely that I'll actually have to go to court over this?
