    PCN 3 tickets Advice needed

    PCN 3 tickets Advice needed 15th Jan 20 at 12:57 PM
    Hi all,

    The keeper of a vehicle that has received 3 parking tickets and 1 escalation from a private parking company Parking Control Management (UK) ltd. 2 are for the car being parked within visitor bays without a visitor permit shown (though one was on order) and one for the car not being parked in a bay (due to there not being any spaces available). Now a escalation has been revived charging £100.

    What actions should be taken next? Continue to ignore these or should a appeal be sent over using the blue text in the Newbies thread to their appeal email?

    Any advice is welcome.

    Thanks.

    Are you still in the time frame to appeal? If so do. If not then you are going to have to wait for a court claim.

    Is this residential, if so please read this.

    Residents often/usually have rights through their leases/ASTs which trump the self serving T&Cs of the scammers. Is it a likelihood in this case?

    I think so, there’s 1 escalation from one of the 3 tickets increasing the “fine” to £100. Should the blue text from the newbie post best sent separately for all 3 tickets?

    You do indeed need to appeal each ticket separately.

    The escalation letter is also referencing debt collectors too. This is getting worrying, will appealing using the blue text work? I’ve been told there were signs up around the area too. Also stating
    As 28 days have now elapsed since the notice to keeper letter was given, Parking control management UK ltd (the creditor) are now able to exercise their right as described under Schedule 4 if Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 to recover the unpaid parking charge from you, as the registered keeper

    NO, and it's not intended to 'work' as it explains in the sticky thread about IPC member scammers.

    Of course there were, they cannot issue PCNs without signs. EVERY case we win in court, has signs up!

    Nothing is different about your case and these are winnable IN COURT - at your local court. Not at appeal stage. It is not 'worrying' at this stage, and winning in court is great fun, I promise!

    Of course. Standard.

    This is no different from any PCM case and I have already replied on two tonight before yours. No-one else is panicking. Read other PCM cases and see how we win in court.

    NO-ONE here would pay PCM. You really need to read other threads about his lot and their Watchdog appearance back in the day.
    PRIVATE 'PCN'? DON'T PAY BUT DON'T IGNORE IT UNLESS IN SCOTLAND OR NI
