Marstons and PCN - do i owe £235 visit fee when no note left of proof?

Recommended Posts

Hi - thanks for your help!
 

I had a  parking ticket that went to Marstons to be settled by the 7th November,

I thought it was the 17th

 

I went online to pay it yesterday (so 1 working day later) and they had added the further £235 Enforcement fee?

There had been no visits or letters from them

- is this charge legal without them actually doing anything further?

 

Thanks,


Jason

The enforcement fee of £235 may only be charged AT THE TIME OF THE VISIT......not before. 

What you would need to do is to call the company and ask them why the fee has been added when supposedly, no visit has taken place. 

 

Please post back with any response.

Have you had the first Compliance letter, where £75 would be added?


We could do with some help from you.

Yes, i received the letter and £75 compliance in the post.

That gave me until the 8th to sort out an arrangement.

I didnt as was away for the weekend.

I got a text from the enforcement agent to say i really need to get this sorted, and I paid yesterday.

 

 

Today I received a note from him through the door to say the enforcement fee is outstanding. 

 

His text says

' On the 8/11 the case passed to an enforcement stage and the statutory fee of £235 was added making the balance £513 as of Friday 8/11. I've contacted you yesterday in order to avoid getting the car clamped etc...:

 

He text me as i've had some dealings with him years ago, so i guess he was helping me out (although only to make sure he got paid..) 

 

Their office seem to imply their is satellite confirmation that he came to my property, but 100% no letter received through the door.

I paid Marston directly online,  I have a receipt for that, and yes, included the £75 in that figure. 

 

I've now received a response from the bailiff when I questioned if he visited - 

 

"There is an enforcement fee charged and logged with a visit on the 08/11/2019 at 06:20 hrs.

I don't know if a letter was left or not.

 

A second visit was logged yesterday morning at 06:31 when your vehicle was spotted parked a cross the road from your address.

 

You can access the full log of all these visits with GPS coordinates from Marston Group.

 

In order to get access to this you have to file a Data Subject Access Request with Marston Group.

 

I will be on XXXXXXX around 09:30 am tomorrow and I can show you what it is recorded on the system.

 

Regards,

Marstons"

 

I really dont want to pay and then have to claim back with a small claims court if necessary (although have done that and received £1000 in compensation) 

 

Thoughts?

Do they not need to leave a note? 

 

I've had experience where they say they've been and havent.

One issue would be Cleared Funds, as in pay online and it may be 3 days before the payment is showing in their bank

Hi Brass, no - that definitely wasnt the issue as they admitted to amount was only missing the £235. 

 

I'm just confused - if they didnt leave a note, then what proof do i have they had come to my property?

 

Thanks

not that I am aware of

though you'd think they would leave something.

 

you'll have to SAR them.

id do that rather than ring.

 

though we all know GPS data can be faked but would someone do that? IMHO no.

Unfortunately there is no statutory requirement to leave a notice, although most do.

Were you in at the times they said they called?
