On the 27th May 2013 I went shopping at Allison Court retail Park Metrocentre Gateshead.My teenage daughter was with me and wanted to shop in the Metrocentre main building.
I parked (It was always a free car park, no time restrictions and half empty) escorted my daughter across a busy road to the Metrocentre main building, then continued to do my shopping at the Allison court section. I had been given a private "Ticket" for "Leaving the site". A new sign was on display and in the middle, not very clearly, said you should not leave the site. Allison court has always been considered part of the Metrocentre by all users (It was even named after the dauaghter of the builder of the Metrocentre, Sir ***** *****). I was sent a letter asking for the name of the driver and later various levels of threat and increasing demands. I ignored all and had absolutely no contact with them. The last I heard from them was 12/18 months ago until yesterday when I received a demand for £275 from The Miah Solicitors. Is there not a time limit for these things and do I have to pay this extortionate amount. As it's a free car park I have not deprived them of any income and have not received a VAT invoice. "The site" you should not leave is not defined and it is reasonable to think Allison Court and Metrocentre are the same "site".
Thanks for that.
What about the fact that the site they say you must not leave is not defined or identified, does that count as unclear signage?
Ok thanks for that, I can argue that point if neccesary.
Just before I leave the rating can I say that after starting this enquiry and paying I checked on reviews of Just Answer.
I must say I was very unhappy with some of the stories on there.
However I have absolutely no complaints with the service provided to me today.
