    UKCPS and The Miah Solicitors

    UKCPS and The Miah Solicitors 22nd Sep 14 at 3:32 PM
    First of all I would just like to say thanks for reading this threat and would appreciate any help in this matter.

    I received a letter today from 'The Miah Solicitors' notifying me that they have been instructed by a client - UKCPS in connection with an outstanding parking charge. The letter details my car registration, the time and place of offence and a ticket number.

    The parking event is described as 'The land where the vehicle was parked had various conditions for restricted parking, whereby, parking fully complying to a specific condition, you contractually agreed to pay a parking charge plus any additional charges incurred as a result of non payment.'

    It also goes on to say that there was an initial charge of 100 and as this has not been paid I need to make a payment of 275 which included legal fees within 14 days of the this letter.

    The letter also does not refer to any other letters with dates and or references

    The parking charge notice was due to the vehicle being parked in a disabled bay within a private gym car park. Now I have been looking through several threads on this forum today and I am overwhelmed with the amount of information available. However I am unsure as to what action I should take. Should I just ignore the letter or appeal it by writing to the solicitors firm.

    I did read somewhere on this forum that parking on a disabled bay in a private care park - does not require you to display a blue/disability badge and therefore the penalty is no enforceable?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Why did you resurrect a near-2 year dead thread to post that?

    It may well be on the wrong thread, but it is certainly interesting.

    Perhaps the poster can start his or her own thread adding more detail. This looks like a monumental fubar by Miah and should be given more publicity. If what is said is true it should certainly form the basis of a complaint to the SRA.
    You never know how far you can go until you go too far.

    They mean, please don't post on other people's threads (not on this board).

    On here, if you want help, start by reading NEWBIES PLEASE READ THESE FAQS FIRST' which you can see where to click to find, from my signature below. One click and you are off this thread and looking at today's new posts and the NEWBIES thread at the top.

    Start by reading that and then, start your own thread if you still need to.

    Advice to ignore is WRONG, unless in Scotland/NI.
