This is a private parking fine and can't be enforced.
There is no contract, you have not agreed to the terms and they have suffered no loss
If it went to Court then they would get back £5 or so at the very most, which is actual loss
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thanks Alex, my concern is the evident raising of the pressure by the company. I also have a written demand now which follows the same tone. Are you certain they have no legal grounds for enforcing this fine?
Yes of course. The only cause of action they have against you is in contract
There are elements they must satisfy.
There was an intention to create legal relations, there was an offer, there was acceptance, there was a breach and they suffered a loss
They must prove ALL of this. If one element fails then rtheir claim fails.
Even if you did lose they can only claim their actual loss not the highly inflated £120
Does this clarify?
