I have received from Pro Service Enforcement Solutions, a

Resolved Question:

I have received from xxx xxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxx, a trespass notice for £150.00. (reduced to £130.00 if paid within 14 days)along with photographs of my car which they say breached terms and conditions of the use of land i.e. no parking,stopping or waiting. I did not see the warning notice displayed, possibly my fault, I was parking outside the xxxxx xxxx sorting office their parking spaces were full of xxxxx xxxx vans for 5 minutes at the very most. My query is, first the amount being charged, and if this claim would be upheld in the county court. If I am liable, I would be willing to pay a reasonable amount. Thank you

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Can you confirm there was not adequate signage?

Customer:

They may be adequate,but I did not see them, of think that there might me any

Alex Watts :

As this is not a fine from a Council it is hard to enforce

Alex Watts :

In order for them to bring a successful claim they would need to show:

Alex Watts :

1) There was a contract between you and them - there was not, as you did not intend to create a legal relationship

Alex Watts :

2) You agreed to their terms - they clearly were not displayed on the bay so you cant be bound

Alex Watts :

3) They suffered a loss - I can not see how they did. Maybe £5 at most

Alex Watts :

Therefore you should not be bullied into paying, they would have to take you to the small claims Court.

Alex Watts :

Even if you lose you would only be liable for the Court fees, nothing else

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer:

how do you suggest I reply to their demand ?

Alex Watts :

I would simply write back and say you dispute it and to provide evidence of a contract, where the terms were and loss

Alex Watts :

Does that help?

Customer:

would you suggest making any small offer of payment, to close this matter

Alex Watts :

No, you dont owe anything - but that is a matter for you

Customer:

thank you Alex, I will reply to them and dispute this, if they decide to take it any further, may I come back to you for further advice?

Alex Watts :

Of course, put any further questions: FOR ALEX W

Alex Watts :

I can assist them.
