    Hi everyone.

    I know there's another thread on here related to exactly the same issue, but it appears to not have been updated by the OP.

    I've had an ongoing saga with a Parking Ticket I received from Napier Parking on 1/8/2019 - I had a valid ticket which had run out by about 4 minutes, I actually caught the guy taking photos of my car as I returned a few minutes late.

    then all the letters started.

    They have since been trying to sting me with £90 of charges, and also now additional charges for the time elapsed since, and my refusal to pay.

    My argument is that their charges weren't a true reflection of financial damages to them caused by my lateness. I sent well worded letters asking for clarification from them as to why the charge/fee is in place, and how they are structure - they haven't answered. I also offered to pay them for interim parking charges, for the time relating to my lateness. (eg. additional cost1 hour of parking) which they haven't responded to.

    I've now received a County Court Business Centre Claim Form, just need some advice.

    The amount they are claiming is £231.42 which includes £156.42, Court Fee of £25, Legal Rep Costs of £50.

    I think the charges are exorbitant! But I did break the rules, but want to see if have any case to have it thrown out for being unreasonable.
