Hi there. I canme home yesterday to find a parking charge notice from a private company for £100 (£60 if paid within 14 days) for an incident in April 2017! The car park was free for 2 hours but the stay was timed at 150 minutes. There are cctv pictures with the letter which are time stamped. It's not possible on the cctv photos to see who is driving.

I would imagine the delay in sending me this notice is due to the car being a company car via a leasing company. I came off the company car scheme in may 2017, however I am assuming the leasing company have given the car park operator my details.

Having done a bit of reading last night on this great website and on MSE I understand that there are rules around the car park operator approaching the leasing company within 28 days of the offense for details of the hirer, and then the same for approaching the hirer.

My plan is to write back (using the template from MSE) stating the reasons why they have not been compliant. Is this the right course of action? Any further advice?

Still a bit surprised to have received this so long after the incident - is there not a time limit for issuing these invoices?

Thanks!

Hello,

I have received a reply from VCS, attached to this post.

What should I do now? They have given me details to appeal, however based on ostell's previous post, this is unlikely to succeed!

Thanks in advance.

Nothing

Their reply is of course nonsense

You could respond thanking them for confirming they have no legal basis for pursuing you , for an event 15 months ago, and that they have no evidence as to the drivers identity - just an assumption thy are fully aware doesn't hold up in the upinnumerable court cases they've lost.
