Its not a fine, tell the Estate Agent and the managing Agents that you don't expect to be invoiced for viewing an apartment, and should have issued a permit or contacted OPS that you were on legitimate business. I would be telling them to get it cancelled or else . You should not have appealed. However if they did try court they would likely lose a defended Have moved this to your own thread so specific advice can be given for your case.
If you could answer the questions on this sticky it will allow the Team to see what is being dealt with.
Just had a fine from OPS for parking on a visitors bay at some apartments we were viewing with my daughter. The estate agent nor the man on desk asked for my reg or said anything about where I was parked - I feel totally conned! Sent an appeal with the confirmation of viewing with estate agent and was deemed unacceptable - although first letter was a fine for £100 which is now £60 if I pay within 2 weeks 🤦♀️
Thank for your nice advice and help! To be honest I did it few times in the same place in a short period cos it worked until the security saw me but I won’t do it again for sure! I learned the lesson this time.
I was reading about others and I can imagine everything was fine but I my worries was cos I didn’t read a similar case, all them were cases where people was caught the first time they did but my case is different cos I did a few times in same place until I was caught.
I just was very worried cos maybe they could check the CCTV every time I went there in the last couple of months doing the same cos I used my nectar card/cc and they have my details as they asked for them also. (So i guess must be easy track me with those info in their system)
But both of you told me it will be fine, so I feel better, still a bit worried cos it was recently but I will be ok.
thank u very much again !
