    Failure to pay for duration of stay

    Failure to pay for duration of stay 1st Dec 17 at 11:35 AM
    Thank you so much for this excellent resource. Any thoughts on the below most welcome.

    NTK arrived within 14 days. They have amended the wording since some of the above posts, but it does still state "if within 28 days we have not received full payment or driver details" (my emphasis) which I know is non-compliant wording.

    The car park in question allows 3 hours free parking, thereafter a charge per hour is payable. But payment can only be made once the 3 hours have expired and only by mobile phone. What if you are held up (I appreciate this is not a legal point) and either don't own a mobile or the battery is flat at the end of the 3-hour period? I have never before used a car park where cash payment is not possible. This seems to be a potential discrimination issue to me (older drivers statistically less likely to own a mobile phone).

    Any thoughts on offering to pay the charge for the extra time late on the basis that there is then no breach of contract as the parking sign does not specify the latest time by which payment can be made?

    Which PPC?
    If you are held up - this is frustration of contract
    They have to accept cash, arguably, if they are claiming a debt accrues otherwise.

    Any other thoughts and comments gratefully received.

    Keeper is minded to offer to pay for one hour's additional parking without giving away identity of driver

    Not a hope that will be worth doing
    Have you read the newbies thread, which gives you a precise route to follow, based on the PPC?

    Yes, and I have located the template appeal to PPC based on this being a postal NTK and will adapt that. I was just wondering what else to include.

    Thanks again for your help - there's just a lot to absorb for a newbie

    The template is a template for a reason.
    The appeal to a PPC is almost never successful, so the template is used to ensure no wrong info is given away, and to not expend time on these parasites.

    Make sure you send the right template. ROUND logo denotes the membership you care about.
