Court received DCBL Legal/MET parking
I was wondering if I could get some assistance, please.
On Saturday (28.10.23) I received court documents from DCB in regard to a parking charge from May 2019. Do I need to be concerned?
Back in May 2019, I was renting a property from the Peabody Housing Association in East London. That residence had three parking spots, which were only accessible with parking permits. Fortunately, I had a permit for the side road on which my flat was situated.
On the day in question, when my daughter (7 years old) and I returned from school, there were no parking spaces available on my street or the surrounding streets. I had shopping to take to the second floor, and there was no lift.
I needed to rush my daughter to the loo and unload my shopping, so I stopped at the front and took her upstairs. When I returned, there was no ticket on my car, but a few days later I got a letter from MET Parking with a £100 overdue fee. How could this happen if I never received a PCN on my windscreen?
How could I have possibly been aware that this violation had occurred?
I recall signing into MET's website and there were several photos of my car, but none of them exhibited the Penalty Charge Notice affixed to my car.
The increased construction of "Royal Wharf" meant that the limited parking spaces available for the people who lived on the street were filled with cars. To make matters worse, we were close enough to the City Airport to walk there.
I did possess a resident parking permit which allowed me to park on the main road.3 months later, I bought my own property and sold the car, I completely forgot about the potential fine. To tell the truth, I have been getting letters from Met at my new house for the last few months, typically at an interval of 4-6 months, and I have opted to disregard them.
Is there any way to shake MET off? Did I have the supremacy of the contract?
Sorry! I hope this makes sense as I'm a little worried
