  • Fined for parking in my own apartment block?

    For context:
    In July 2019, I moved into an apartment with a private carpark. This carpark has allocated numbered parking spaces for each flat and the cost of parking one car is included in my rent. My signed tenancy agreement also has a line that states '1 Allocated Parking Space' as part of my allowance.

    The estate agent provided me with a parking permit for me to display on my dashboard whilst parking, which I placed in my car. However, whilst I was away on vacation for about 2 weeks duration, the permit fell down from my dashboard and I returned home to find FOUR identical parking tickets, each 65. I disputed this immediately with evidence of my tenancy agreement stating that I am allocated a parking space but this was rejected.

    I continued to receive multiple letters chasing the debt, and continued to email back with the same evidence with no luck. I have now been sent a 'Letter before Claim' and I am unsure as to how strong my argument is. The total amount due has now increased to 656. I believe that this is completely unjust and I should not have to pay such a fine for parking in my own allocated parking space for which I already pay monthly for.https://19216811.cam https://xender.vip https://testmyspeed.onl


    I'd appreciate any advice on this issue.

    Does your contract say that you must display a permit?*

    Your response is that you already have a contract to park from the landholder in a specified space.* You do not require another contract to park from a third party stranger to your lease.* Your leasewhich has primacy, does not require you to display a permit nor pay a charge to a third party for non display.* The permit is displayed purely for the benefit of the operatives without intent to create a contractual relationship.*


    Here's* a read for you:*https://parking-prankster.blogspot.c...ential+parking

      See if you can get a copy of your landlords lease that defines the parking space.* The landlord will probably be more than happy to help.

        This is very bad, and injustice you are paying and someone else is using your space, you should stop paying your rent.

          Well, it also seems like the same as what you mentioned about paying and someone else using the same space that builds for the related person that you found on Expo Net Worth.
