    TnC Parking Charge Notice

    TnC Parking Charge Notice 14th May 18 at 8:40 PM
    Hi there, I received a ticket on my windscreen in a private car park after being approximately 20 mins or so over my displayed ticket on the day. I was issued with a 100 fine just for this which I found to be excessive (putting it lightly). Decided to just not pay it as I know they're not a council or police issued ticket (which I will always pay when in the wrong). I have now received this letter (attached image) from what I believe to be a debt collecting company. I was only a short time over so feel very reluctant to pay that large amount however I don't want anybody turning up at my parents door demanding huge sums of money (says there will be added extra fees if I don't pay up in 28 days!?).

    Any help with this would be GREATLY appreciated.

    TY

    Can't see that link but if it's a debt collector letter, no thanks, unimportant. End of discussion.

    I said this to someone this afternoon, as we do almost every day:

    We don't want to see a debt collector letter ever again. Honestly.

    That is not what this forum is about and there is nothing new to add to the sticky thread.

    you cannot post a link to your own pc NOR can you upload pics to this forum either

    use tinypic to host any pics and add a dead URL link to them , changing http to hxxp

    read post #4 of the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread about debt collector letters

    in future , follow post #1 of that NEWBIES thread to appeal these tickets, because that 100 charge has been around for over 6 years and if a court decides you must pay it, then you must

    the PPC has 6 years to try a court claim (an MCOL , google it)

    and its not a "fine" , its an INVOICE

    Hello Lewis. Welcome.

    You would be wise to change your forum username to something more anonymous.

    The MSE Forum Guide explains how to do that:
    Q. How can I change my username?

    A.
    In most circumstances, this is not permitted.

    The only reason we will change your username is if it puts your privacy at risk. This usually means you've inadvertently registered using your name, email address or something that gives away your identity within your username.

    If you fall into this category, email forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com and request that it is changed, giving three alternative usernames in order of preference.

    in fact , they have HIGH COURT WRITS because its already been to their county court and a CCJ issued, plus its a debt over 600 which means its been escalated to the HIGH COURT for enforcement

    if the vehicle is in your mums name, then she better ensure that if it went to court she fights it at the time, to avoid a CCJ and therefore avoid being on telly , if its in your name , then the same applies to YOU

    No the car is in my name. But the car is registered to my mum & dad's address because I am away at Uni.

    Why are you advising me to fight it now and respond when all other correspondence seems to be to completely ignore these bogus letters?

    Am I really liable for a 100 fine for being less than 20 minutes over my displayed ticket? Confused :/

    NO !!!

    in the case of a parking co , they cannot FINE you , they can send an invoice for breaking there terms and conditions , if you fail to pay it , they can take you to the county court


    have you seen how often this lot do court? http://www.parkingappeals.info/companydata/RCP_Parking.html

    Ok that's really helpful thank-you. I just found the original ticket and I was charged for:

    Parked after the expiry of paid time.

    Expiry time: 15:49
    Issue Time: 16:04

    Amount due : 100.

    So I was 15 minutes over! lol

    Is it worth appealing and offering a settlement for the short period I was parked over? Like 5 or something. Or just completely ignore all engagement until they leave me alone?

    Thankyou

    I suggest you edit your posts , edit all of your posts and remove any hint of who did what

    what happened on the day happened to the DRIVER

    what happened SINCE that day happened to the KEEPER

    the words "ME , MYSELF & I" do not exist in this topic, so dont use them unless the driver has been outed to the PPC or the debt collectors

    keep the paid for ticket and all paperwork in a folder

    its not worth offering anything at this stage, that tells them they have a frightened fish on the hook and to push for more, like OLIVER

    they wont leave anyone alone until 6 years have elapsed

    the trick here is to keep all paperwork, IGNORE the debt collectors and come back if you get a formal LBC or an MCOL in the post , within 6 years

    I did liven up your link to tinypic but it shows your name, so I took it down again. That picture needs redacting.

    Lewis, why have you totally ignored post #9?

    It is in your own interest to use the advice you are given.

    No, remember we've seen debt collector letters chains and laughed at them for a decade.

    Outstanding PCN
    Help please!!

    I received a parking charge from TNC back in December on my windscreen, as it wasn't a council parking charge I did not pay it and ignored it. I got a letter back in May to say the charge of 100 was now to pay as I had not paid the initial charge. I ignored this again as I wasn't sure it was a genuine company. I've recently received an additional letter on 23rd June that says:

    Now charging me 160!! (60 admin charge)

    Outstanding parking charge notice,

    Despite our letter of, your PCN has still not been paid nor have you advised us that you were not the keeper or the driver of the vehicle on the date stated. However the time to appeal has now passed....
    Failure to act today will result in the immediate referral of the matter to our litigation department.
    Etc etc.

    I contacted nottingham council parking services to ask their advice. They weren't sure it sounded genuine and said to contact the company directly - I called them up and they said I would need to pay it.

    What do I do? I know it's too late to appeal now so am I just going to have to pay up the charge??

    Help and advice appreciated!
    Claire


    I called nottingham council parking services and they were astounded

    You don't get help by posting in someone's thread like this

    Everyone is politely asked to read up on this in the Newbies FAQ thread near the top of the forum before starting a new thread

    So go there now to learn about the game you are now caught up in and how to deal with this

    Then if you have any questions not covered by the faq start your own thread

    Please delete your post above
