Parking Group Debt Recovery Letter ?

If you receive a debt recovery letter from Parking Group, it is important to understand your options at this stage. It is generally advised to ignore such letters, as the purpose of the debt recovery process is often to obtain more information from you or to pressure you into paying.

Despite any claims made in the letter, it is unlikely that the parking charge notice will be canceled at this point.

This is because debt recovery companies have a contractual agreement with Parking Group, where they only get paid if they successfully collect the debt from you.

Please read our guide debt recovery guide, it explains clearly the following:
  1. What to do if you receive a debt recovery letter
  2. Your options at this stage of the process
  3. And if you should ignore the debt recovery letters

Parking Group FAQ

Important Information Parking Group Tickets

  3. The decision of an appeal at POPLA is not binding on you, but is binding on Parking Group.
  4. Parking Group must win in court to enforce the charge.
  5. If they lose, they may be required to compensate you.
  6. You have the opportunity to defend yourself in court and claim compensation as a litigant in person if you win.

Received A Parking Group Reminder Letter ?

If Parking Group issue a reminder letter while the appeal is in progress, then you can simply wait for the appeal process to finish before you take any action. 

If the reminder letter comes out of the blue without a parking charge being issued, then you could be entitled to make a complaint about not receiving parking charge notice.

Ticket has progressed to a receive a reminder notice, you may have an opportunity to challenge the parking charge notice or you may have an opportunity to negotiate a lower rate for your parking charge.

British Parking Association rules say that a final reminder can only be issued after a parking charge notice is sent. If not, you may be able to complain about the unfair enforcement.

If a reminder is sent during the appeal process, for example within 28 days after the parking charge was issued, you can still appeal it as if it was the parking charge notice and put your case forward to why you object the parking charge notice.

Can I ignore Parking Group Ticket?

Since 2012, the law Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 was introduced to help both drivers and parking companies when it comes to dealing with parking tickets.

For drivers, this law made clamping illegal, and introduced requirements that Parking Group must follow in order to make the vehicle keeper liable for a parking charge if the driver is not known.

This is still the most powerful tool today to challenge parking tickets because the law clearly explains the requirements that Parking Group must meet to transfer liability.

However, the same law allows Parking Group to transfer liability to the registered keeper, so if you ignore the parking charge, Parking Group can use it to make the keeper liable.

CCJ Quick Reference

A CCJ must be removed if the CCJ is not issued correctly, for example, the claim is sent to your old address, then you can apply to have the CCJ to be set aside and if successful, you will have an opportunity to defend the court claim.

Parking companies often omit this information that you can get a CCJ removed or have it set aside in certain situations. In fact, as part of the process to challenge a CCJ, if you and the parking company agree that a claim was issued to an old address or you agree to pay the amount, then a CCJ can be removed if both parties “consent” or agree to have it removed.

Most people think that they will receive a CCJ if they don’t respond to parking tickets, however this only happens if you ignore a County Court claim and do not defend yourself.

Are Parking Group tickets enforceable?

The answer is no. Parking Group tickets are invoices issued for breach of contract, what this means is that when you receive the parking charge notice, you have an opportunity to engage with Parking Group and challenge whether that parking charge notice was issued correctly or not.

If Parking Group issued the parking charge correctly, they still have to take the case to court before they can enforce it.

If Parking Group don’t comply with the law, they could put themselves in a difficult situation where they commit fraud under Fraud Act 2006 or if they lose a court case, they will have to pay compensation if they have been unreasonable.

So, parking charge notices can only be a nuisance if you ignore court proceedings and you do not respond. Otherwise, many claims can successfully be defended in court.

Parking Group Ticket in Scotland and Northern Ireland

The rules for Parking Group tickets in Scotland and Northern Ireland differ from the rest of the UK as the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 does not apply there.

This means Parking Group will attempt to identify the driver to hold them liable, but if they cannot do so legitimately, they could be committing fraud by transferring liability to the registered keeper.

Many people are unaware of their rights in this situation, leading to unfair enforcement. The Data Protection Act 2018 was introduced to protect individuals from this and allow them to claim compensation from Parking Group.

Recently, Nigel Farage held Coutts Bank accountable for collecting his political views without his consent and residents of Scotland and Northern Ireland can also make a subject access request to find out if their information was processed without legitimate reason.

In this case, they can claim up to £750 for Breach of Data Protection Act 2018.

Parking Group Reviews
