So, in a nutshell, you used to be able to park there and one day, the signs appeared and you didn’t notice them? Is that it?
How prominent are the signs?
What do you want to know about this?
The landowner doesn’t need to say that the parking space is changing ownership. Nor does the bank need to tell you that you can park there one day and not the next. It would be good customer service on the banks part but there is no absolute need for it.
Generally, appealing these charges to the parking company are a waste of time because they are in the business of making money which is why the signs of gone up. You can also appeal to POPLA https://popla.co.uk/
You can do that on the basis that there is not sufficient signage but not in my opinion on the basis that there was no signage one day there was the next.
If your appeal fails, you need to defend the action on the basis that there is not sufficient signage you to know that you were going to be charged.
These rarely go to court because even if the parking company wins, they will not recover their solicitors costs and it is not financially viable therefore for them to take them to court. I cannot guarantee they will not go to court but it is not that common. The parking companies rely on people just rolling over and paying up.
