    Not sure if it's in my letting contract so will check that out later on when I get home from work.Could I argue it had fallen from the dash if asked by the letting agent - or is it best to ignore. What about CCTV of me taking off the parking ticket this morning, before getting in the car? Can't even deny that I didn't get one if that's the case...


    Thanks for the help everybody - don't want to get screwed over and let dodgy companies keep getting away with illegal ticketing.

    When you say "letting contract" you obviously mean "tenancy agreement". Your landlords lease still trumps this. Besides, if this only started a couple of weeks ago have you had a new tenancy agreement that you have signed since then ? Not that it matters if you have - the "ticket" is totally unenforceable.

    I would just ignore it if I were you ( and I'm a landlord and someone who has picked up some PPC "tickets" ! ).

    Clamping is also a worry ...
    No it's not. It's been banned. If you find your car clamped, you will be quite within your rights to forcibly remove it. Or better, call the police (and persuade them it's NOT a civil matter, Sir).

    As others have said, in all likelihood, your allocated space is part of the flat's lease, no management company has the right to impose any kind of permit system over it, and you can ignore both the tickets and the permit scheme. It cannot affect your credit record or references.

    I hope someone out there can advise me on what to do next. I was at the Metrocentre, Allison court, just after Christmas. I was with my wife and 2 children I said to my wife I need to goto maplins, and she said she wanted to take the kids to toys r us. the road to cross for toys r us was very busy so I helped my wife with the 2 kids to cross and then I went back to Maplins. When I returned from Maplins I had a parking charge notice on my car from UKCPS for leaving site. My main problem is in section 3 they use wording like court costs and baliff costs. so what should I do.

    Read this thread and then do what we tell everyone else, ignore them. Why do you think your case is different ?

    If so, then you will know the advice is to ignore.

    If not, why not?

    Court Costs and Bailiff Costs?

    They would only apply if they took you to court and won.

    That simply won't happen, legally they haven't got a case against you.
