    Can I challenge a parking charge notice 21 months later? 28th Nov 17 at 8:54 PM
    Hi there

    Sorry if I’m asking an obvious question or have missed something. I received a ‘letter of claim’ in the post today from a legal recovery company BW Legal re a parking charge notice I had on my windscreen in Feb 2016! I have never had any follow up in writing until today, 21 months later.

    Do I have the basis of any argument to challenge this? They have requested £154.

    It is on behalf of VCS limited.

    Any help would be much appreaciated!

    please stick to one thread only

    I have replied in your other thread
    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

    There’s also the same post in the POPLA Decisions sticky - why there?
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.
