    I got a Uk car park management ticket 15th May 18 at 11:30 PM
    Hi there


    I recieved a ticket from Uk car park management through the post. My car was parked on a double yellow line in a housing complex/ Tesco and they caught it on camera. I wasnt the driver at the time, it was my girlfriends nephew driving, I lent him my car to go to the shop. I want to send them the transfer of liability slip on the ticket. But the nephew is from South Africa and has now gone home. What do I do? Cheers.

    you read and follow the advice in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky thread

    if the driver is no longer in the UK , then you could consider naming the driver with a serviceable address in his home country , which means you will have complied with POFA2012 and as keeper means you wont be liable

    they can try and chase the driver, but the driver is outside the jurisdiction of the UK courts , so impasse
    Newbies !!
    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    I want to send them the transfer of liability slip on the ticket. But the nephew is from South Africa and has now gone home.
    Appeal this week as keeper, using the template you saw when you read the 'NEWBIES PLEASE READ THESE FAQS FIRST' thread first...before you posted. You should add 'I was not the driver' clearly to the template.

    Then when you get a rejection letter, quickly send UKCPM the name and South African address of the driver, using the transfer of liability slip. Take a photocopy of it, and a copy of the addressed envelope it's being sent in, then take it to the PO Counter and ask for a free 'certificate of posting' and keep that receipt, staple it to a copy of the transfer slip.

    Then, appeal to the IAS saying you cannot be liable, there can be no prima facie case against you in law, because you have already transferred liability (and attach your proof, the transfer slip and PO certificate of posting). Under the Interpretations Act, the slip is deemed delivered well before court action and during the appeals window, and so UKCPM cannot hold the keeper liable.

    I will do this. Thanks. Quick question, it says the fine was issued on the 3rd of May, it says I have 14 days from that date. But i got this pcn in the post on the 10th, a week later. I will be doing this online later, but last time it just said my details were not recognised.

    There's only one. It's in blue typeface and starts (cunningly) 'Dear Sir/Madam'.
    Please note, we are not a legal, residential or credit advice forum, rather one that helps motorists fight private parking charges, primarily at the 'front-end' of the process.

    Change it then.

    I did already tell you to add one line to it.
