I wrote all the cheques from my current account with Nationwide. The second one has not appeared anywhere and parking company claim they did not receive it.
Sorry I misunderstood.
I cannot remember the name of the company and right now cannot find the paperwork from them. Is it important to have this?
It was a parking area for Currys/Pc World. B and M Stores and a Pizza Hut on the outskirts of Ipswich, Suffolk. I do not know who owns the land I am afraid. The parking area is also for a couple of other stores (furniture I think) as well.
The site is next door to a large Tesco store.
My apologies I realise I did not give you the whole story now have I read your detailed reply.
The site has signs on posts that I did not see as on the day it was raining heavily and quite dark too. I had not visited the site for some months so was not aware of the signs.
I was not aware there was 2 hour limit there or that when eating in Pizza Hut I should have put my car reg no on a screen to register that I was there - not sure what difference this makes.
I went back some weeks later to see what I had missed and saw the signs.
Does that make it clearer or change what you have said?
There are no ticket machines on the site.
should I just ignore the letters now and requests for money or write and tell them to get lost basically? Or is that asking for court action?
I do not know what to do for the best but am so angry they destroyed my cheque in the beginning. Quite unnecessary and I cannot believe that is legal.
I have decided that I am going to write to them and say as I have paid - twice - in total the amount that was quoted in original notice, and as it has been refused I will not pay more.
I don't feel comfortable with it but it does seem like way of taking money for nothing to me.
Are they allowed to tear up cheques and refuse payment like that?
How can I retain a copy of your answers please? I would like to re read them?
Ok, maybe I wont write but will retain the correspondence and take your advice.
As it will not affect my credit rating that makes me feel better.
Many many thanks for your advice and expertise.
I shall know where to come in future if help is needed.
