Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am a solicitor in Scotland. Thank you for your question. The case should be defended and it is very unlikely the parking company would take the case to court. The agent is at fault here and the agent should be telling the parking company to cancel the charge. Your daughter is contractually entitled to use the space and did so. The contract of lease takes precedence over any contractual liability to display a permit. Your daughter presumably didn’t know of such a contractual liability. To succeed, the parking company would have to prove that she did. For that reason she should refute their claim and refuse to engage in further correspondence. In my experience the demands will eventually cease. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
