    PCN Received at University

    PCN Received at University 30th Nov 17 at 5:19 PM
    Hello,

    The registered keeper received the following PCN on the 13.10.2017. Unfortunately the advice to ignore the letter was followed and since then have received a letter from ZZPS.

    The parking company was One Parking Solutions claiming the registered keeper of the vehicle parked without authorisation. Since then a letter from ZZPS Limited has said that the unpaid PCN has been passed onto them to resolve; adding an administration fee of 72 quid.

    What would you recommend I do? I feel I have grounds to appeal the ticket having found out that I had not received changes in parking rules via email.

    Thank you for all the help.

    Hi, welcome to the forums.

    Your recommended course of action is fully described in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread.

    In particular, post #4 of that thread describes in great detail how to deal with debt collector's letters.

    In summary, that post says "ignore debt collector's letters".

    Wait patiently for the next six years and hope you don't receive a Letter Before Claim or court papers.
    Do not ignore them.

    Hello KeithP,

    Thank you for responding so quickly. I noticed that advice was given in 2014, and my friend told me of a recent change in law that makes that advice not as sound?

    Would you recommend sending a strong email to the university parking team asking them to waive the fine? Or is it not worth my time? Obviously I have yet to have any correspondence with either One Parking Solutions or ZZPS.

    the advice in that NEWBIES sticky thread is bang up to date, plus despite the recent BEAVIS case, the advice on IGNORING debt collectors has not changed for over a decade

    read the last entry in post #4

    its IGNORE , pure and simple

    a landowner cancellation is always preferable , so always try a complaint to the landowner and get them to cancel OR be on your side

    ps:- there is NO recent change in the law , ask your friend to clarify that statement

    the last 2 laws that may have altered things are as follows , with the year

    POFA2012 , october 2012

    CRA2015 , october 2015

    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

    Thanks Redx,

    Im expecting the old Wright Hassle letters to come through the door then in the coming weeks. Lucky me. I have spoken to the university parking team and they have pushed me aside telling me to speak to the parking company.

    The fact that we do not have to even pay for a permit, but the permit rules changed should mean the argument for loss of earnings is pretty weak if it does come down to it.

    Thank you for your help though. If I receive another letter (which I expect to) I will post it up.

    Sorry KeithP,

    I guess I am not used to all of this, however, you must get this all the time.

    Thanks for all your help.

    we have NO INTEREST whatsoever in debt collector letters, they are powerless and boring

    its an LBC or an MCOL you should be posting about , which may arrive in the post within 6 years

    the notion of not a genuine pre-estimate of loss went out with the Supreme Court ruling against Beavis 2 years ago

    it is likely that this event was what your friend was talking about

    Ahh that could be that.

    Thank you both of you for putting me at ease! Safe to ignore ALL correspondence now until I get an LBC or MCOL? Hopefully it doesn't get to that point!

    Hello.

    Wondering if you could point me in the direction of a complaint template. I would like to send one to the university to get them to cancel the PCN.
