My car was parked in a visitor's bay in my residential parking area. One morning I woke up to find a Parking Charge Notice attached to it from UK CPM, who have some signs up around the car park. The issue reason is not displaying a valid parking permit. I have a visitor's permit that is in the car but I am not sure how visible it was on this occasion.

UK CPM are a part of IPC, although the sign says they are a BPA member. I have two questions:

- Am I right in thinking that I needn't do anything until I receive a Notice to Keeper through the post?
- Is there any point contacting my management company to ask for the charge to be cleared (since it's designed to stop people who don't live here or aren't visiting using the bays, not to catch people who live here out), or are they likely to just refer me to UK CPM?

I've attached a redacted copy of the PCN and also a photo of the signs up around the area. I've had a quick look through the contract I signed with the management company when buying the property, as well as their "welcome pack", and can't see any mention of parking whatsoever.

Eli - the defence should be written in the 3rd person, so "the defendant"

Why is it a £35 fee for a counterclaim of only £100? I would cite Vidal-Hall as justificaiton for compensaiton where no direct damages were caused

I expect the OP to be able to successfully defend the claim, but I do not expect him to win a counterclaim.

The objective of the counterclaim is simply to make sure that the parking company does not wriggle out of a hearing at the last possible moment.
