Received PCN notifications 3 months after alleged contravention
Hi. Hope somebody can help/offer advice. I have just recently received a collection of Excel Parking letters from the student flat above our shop premises (sharing the same address as ours) which have been passed on to us after the students have reached the end of their lease (the lady cleaning the flat kindly passed them on, which the students unfortunately didn’t bother to do). The letters were for a PCN back in March (the first letter dated in April) but we had absolutely no knowledge of their existence. The last letter sent (28/06/23) is a ‘letter before claim’ demanding a payment of £170. I want to appeal as I know that I did not commit an offence and can prove this, but due to the time elapsed I have no way to do so. There is no email address for Excel to explain the situation, and no phone number. So, short of getting a potential CCJ and further increased fine I really don’t know what action I can take if I refuse to pay. In absolutely no circumstances do I want to pay the fine, as I know the fault lies with Excel. Can anybody advise please?
