Hello, We have today received a Court Claim from

Customer Question

Hello, We have today received a Court Claim from from Parking Eye Ltd Via The County Court Bulk Centre,4th Floor St Katharines House,21-27 St Katherines Street Northampton NN1 2LH Claim no. XXXXXXXX This is as a result of 2 parking fines being issued on private land earlier on this year. We did not pay the original fines as we were we informed that these companies can not enforce parking fines on private land and have spent the summer abroad. Parking Eye are claiming from us £100 also a court fee of £15.00 along with Solicitors costs of a further £50 giving a total of £165 this amount is times 2 as we have 2 claims against us as both my wife and myself were parked in this space. Could you advise us further of what if anything we can do to avoid having to pay a total of £330 !!! ASAP as there is a 14 day time limit. Also the claim has conveniently arrived today the 21st August and the letter states that the "Day of Service" is taken "5 days after the date of the issue date shown overleaf" ??? We wouldn't object to paying the original fine, but unfortunately due to having been out of the country for several months this situation has not come to our attention till today. Yours sincerely XXXXX XXXXX

I cannot really be any more specific. I need to know what you want to know about this? I'm afraid I cannot think of a way of making that any clearer.

We cannot have correspondence outside of this site.

Dear Jo, As previously stated we received the court notices mentioned in previous correspondence. What I need to know is- A.are they genuine and legitimate, as we were parked on private land? B. the total with solicitors fees etc amounts to almost £500! The actual fines are £300! Which is exhorbitant. Can they insist that we pay the full amount or just the fines or do we legally have to pay them at all? I have today posted the forms back to Parking Eye for their reconsideration. They are based in Chorley in Lancashire. Thank you Paul xxxx
