Euro parks ticket
« on: July 09, 2024, 01:09:20 pm »
Hi. I parked in this pub car park for the first time. It wasnít very clear but I thought I had paid the correct fee. Any ideas please on how to handle this to avoid paying this extortionate parking charge apparently for not paying for the correct time. I was on the way to collect my dad in his car, who is a blue badge holder, but Iím unsure if a blue badge is accepted in a private car park. As itís not a penalty charge notice by a council but a parking charge notice by a private company can they send debt collectors and go to court if you donít pay this? Many thanks in advance!

No debt collectors not bailiffs can send anyone round willy nilly just because someone alleges you owe them a debt. Whist debt collectors may become involved later in the process, they are powerless to do anything and can be safely ignored with no danger of bailiffs or anyone knocking om your door. The are utilised to simply get the low-hanging fruit on the gullible tree, who have no idea how civil law works, to poop their pants at the threatening language and cough up and pay the scammers.

To get a CCJ on your credit record, there is a whole lengthy process that involves Pre-ction Protocol letter of claim, the service of a claim, acknowledgement of the claim, defending the claim, filing a directions questionnaire, an allocation to a county court local to the defendant, a mediation session and finally a hearing where a judge would decide whether the defendant owed the claimant a debt or not. Once the judge has made their decision (judgment) the defendant either wins or loses the claim. Any judgment is likely to be less than the original claim because fake added fees and damages are not allowed in the small claims track.

If the defendant was unlucky enough to lose, as ling as the amount in the judgment is paid within 30 days, there is no record of the CCJ in the defendants credit file. The only way a CCJ remains on your credit record is if you don't pay it in full with 30 days of the judgment or it is paid later than 30 days after judgment where it remains but is marked as "satisfied".

Any CCJ for less than £600 is unlikely to have an enforcement order made whereby court appointed bailiffs could come around and knock on your door to seize property.

I hope that helps allay any fears.

Hi. Car parked in pub car park for the first time. The process is to pay for the ticket and then get this reimbursed in the pub on leaving. The pub manager was tied up and so due to the delay, by the time of leaving the car park, they claim the car was parked for 18 minutes more than was paid for.

Any ideas please on how to handle this to avoid paying this extortionate parking charge? Do you need to respond to private car parks?

There was a legitimate reason for running over, which was the companyís fault. The parking location is not on their website and so you canít purchase tickets online which is quicker. You are forced to buy a physical ticket which you then have to wait for the pub manager to reimburse this.

Due to being abroad the time period to pay for the ticket has expired.
A ticket was nonetheless purchased, and it would have cost £1 to increase the time period and not £45-75 as they have requested.

Thanks in advance!

Too late to do anything about this now as it happened back in early June. You could have appealed, had that rejected and then appealed to POPLA and had a good chance of getting it cancelled as the signage is atrocious.

Now you will have to wait and weather the debt collector letters. Don't show those to us as they are useless and can be safely ignored. Come back if/when you get a Letter of Claim or an actual claim from the CNBC.

In the meantime, have you tried speaking to the pub about the issue?

Nope, you can pay at any time, if the parking company were to decline to accept how stupid do you think they would look in court?
