UKCPM numerous PCNs - residential parking - no parking outside a marked bay

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm asking this on behalf of a friend and would be grateful for any advice.

 

Story is:

Friend A moves into new rented home.

Rented home has a garage and also assigned parking in front of their garage (according to their landlord).

 

Friend B visits Friend A and gets two parking tickets due to parking in front of their garage.

Friend A - who lives there - has also gotten parking tickets for parking there.

 

Landlord insisted he owns the land on which they parked and they are free to park there.

Then the landlord checks and lo and behold he doesn't own the land and suddenly both friends owe £100s

 

Friend A wasn't notified in any way that it was becoming a place you weren’t allowed to park

(themselves and previous tenants had been parking every day and night before the charges). 

 

 Apparently,  signs were put up that weren’t there originally but if you’re used to parking there for a month/two months they didn't look for any signs to suggest otherwise.

 

Is there anything they can do?

They've appealed and been turned down.

Would be grateful for any advice.

Thanks

read a bunch of threads on residential parking issues and them post up pictures of

the site,

the signs there and

tell us the whos and whens .

 

some parking co's dont like taking things to court because they know they will lose

but others are serial muppet sand dont seem to learn form their errors (UKPC)

 

Also tell us about the parking in front of the garage and how you know it isnt owned by the residence and what terms apply for its use.

 

the parking co probably have no relevant contract anyway but useful to see things as they appear on the lease/freehold

please post up the letters whereby they tell you they have been fined?

they are not fines but speculative invoices.

oh dear..parking operator pictures then..or a rouge resident grassing on people for a backhander ..that breaks GCPR

and ofcourse vanishing or invisible windscreen tickets too.

 

there are several things that are outstanding in this thread you need to do.

 

get the questionaire link done.

Also tell us about the parking in front of the garage and how you know it isnt owned by the residence and what terms apply for its use.

 

the parking co probably have no relevant contract anyway but useful to see things as they appear on the lease/freehold

 

we cant advise properly with these being done

now the wording of the letter starts we have issued a parking charge notice to your vehicle....

this in the common usage of the language indicate that they have done exactly that, slapped a charge notice on the vehicle so that give the driver 28 days to pay up. They have sent you as the keeper a NTK a month too early.

 

being greedy adn stupid is the nom for parking co's though so dont expect them to drop the matter but it does make anoth hole in their claim.

Now if we can see the signage at the land along with the entrance to the development from the public highway, whetehr there be a sign there or not and also of the area parked in without cars if possible plus a comparative area that has marked parking bays. Now if there are no marked parking bays they cant say you are in breach of the terms even if they get the wording on the sign pretty tight as there would be no way to actually conform to the terms.

 

It is all about contracts and thier right to offer them and your acceptance of that offer so consider it in the same way as any offer to sell you somehting
