    NCP Parking Fine - looking for advise 11th May 18 at 9:59 AM
    Hi Folks,
    Looking for your advise. I have recieved letters from NCP stating outstanding 6 parking fee from Jan 2018 (NCP Car ParkGlasgow King Street carpark CP CCTV). Letter received today was from a debt collecting company (ZZPS), representing NCP. The want 170!! and have stated that the next course of action is to pass QDR Solicitors LTD, where the fee will rise by another 30 plus VAT!! Reading some of the comments here about Scottish law and previous cases, what next? Can these debt collectors and solicitors take court action and demand payment, worried could escalate or ?? The letter stated that a recent supreme court ruling (parkingEve -V-Beavis) has confirmed that a Parking Charge issues on private land:
    > Is enforceable; and
    > the Parking Charge does not breach the unfair Terms in Consumer Contracts Regulations 1999
    if this remains unpaid, in the event of legal action taking place, court feed and solicitor costs, along with statutory interest, could be added to the amount owed. The legal process is not simple and if you need advise, places where this can be sought are on the reverse of this letter.
    It is in your interests to either get in tough or pay this account and we again invite you to do so within seven days of you receiving this letter; if the account progresses to our solicitors, we will not be able to help you.

    Can they take this to court in Scotland, what next? Appreciate your help and advise

    Thank you JMSCA

    Everyone is politely asked not to start a new thread until after reading up on this in the newbies faq thread near the top of the forum

    go there now to learn about the game you are caught up in - debt collectors/scottish residents etc are all covered there

    Throughout here you are advised never to reveal who was driving

    You need to edit your post to rtemove etails of the driver

    The ppcs monitor this forum and can use your posts against you

    Follow Quentin's advice, take in the scams and lies the newbies thread outlines, they have told you a few porkies already, edit your post, and don't contact the muppets.

    NCP don't do court here so they are unlikely to try a punt in Scotland:

    You write as if the 2015 Beavis case is news (LOL) and as if you haven't searched the forum for the word 'Scotland' or even read the top sticky advice thread? All you need to know is there.

    I'm trying to understand how so many people post without reading:


    Is it due to accessing the forum on your phone? Or did you not read any threads (please start now) or what else can we do to make sure people read the sticky (at the top) thread first?
