Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
It is difficult to tell really what they are alleging.If this is not a pay and display car park then they are either saying you were not a patron of the store or that you overstayed. Unless we know it is impossible really to say whether you are liable.The reality is that they might not sue you. They never used to sue anybody. It is fair to say they are becoming more aggressive than they used to be since the law turned in their favour but they still do not sue everybody with whom they are in conflict.It really depends on your appetite for risk. I would never pay them but I am comfortable about receiving their letters and phone calls.

If you are not then the only way to bring it to an end completely is to pay in full. If that is not palatable then you would have to refuse to pay or make an offer.If they do sue then you can always put them to proof.Can I clarify anything for you?Jo
