Thanks for your question. The case of a Beavis is about the commercial justification in relation to the LEVEL of charges made by private parking firms. From your narrative your case is concerned with whether there was a contract in existence in the first place. The parking company has to prove this before they can levy the charge. So they have to prove that you saw the signage and agreed to the terms of it by proceeding to park your vehicle. If the signage was poor or not signed at all there is nothing for you to agree to and therefore no contract has been created therefore no charge can be levied for you not paying as you didn't know that is what you were supposed to do. Accordingly from your narrative my opinion is that you should ignore this charge after you have stated your position that you were unaware and were not made aware that parking charges applied because of the deplorable lack of signage. Thereafter ignore all further communications and they should eventually cease. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
