    Smart parking ticket 5th Sep 17 at 1:33 PM
    Hi all

    I got a smart parking charge on the 12th june by overstaying 11 minutes. I appealed against it and asked if they would cancel the charge taking into consideration the time unload and load children/ shopping.
    Apparently they sent a rejection letter that i didnt receive and now i have a debt collection letter to recover 160.00. Ive spoke to both companies and no one can help me. Ove been told from the debt collection people that if i dont pay they will take me to court. So i havent had any chance to appeal with popla etc. Please help

    Please stop contacting/listening to the debt-goons and read Post Four of the Newbies Sticky instead, which covers Debt Collection in detail.

    It looks like you are too late to mount a proper appeal, so your remaining options are to go for a landowner cancellation or sit things-out and see if you get an LBCC from Smart, which you defend properly - this is also covered in the Sticky.

    Stop phoning they are liars and scammers, debt collectors cannot take you to court, and Smart aren't likely to either.
    Pity you didn't come here first instead if sending that awful appeal, they aren't interested in your problems only money!

    Does the car park have a name?
    If you can tell us exactly which car park you are talking about perhaps someone might be able to help with that.

    Otherwise, go to the land registry website and for a few pounds they will tell you the owner.

    you are now at stalemate and IGNORING the debt collectors

    only deal with either an LBC or an MCOL issued by not so SMART or their legal representatives

    SMART have 6 years to issue a court claim using MCOL in Northampton
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    PRIVATE PCN? DON'T PAY BUT DO NOT IGNORE IT TWO Clicks needed for advice:
    Top of the page: Home>>Forums>Household & Travel>Motoring>Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking - read the 'NEWBIES' FAQS thread!
    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
