  • Debt recovery service changed for PCM parking.

    Hello guys,

    I have very similar problem to the thread creator here . I am new to this as I only started to drive this year and I need some advice.

    On the car park where I leave my car the residents have their own bays. Unfortunately because we live in town centre people that are going to town always use our spaces therefore my landlord hired Parking Control Management UK Ltd (pcm) to help us with this issue. In my household we've got 3 cars (me, my brother and my parents) but at the time when the landlord was issuing parking permits I didn't have a car so they gave my brother a permit for our bay and my parents received universal one (staff/contractors).

    When I started to drive I've asked my landlord to give me a universal permit but they've refused to give me one as they said it wouldn't be fair towards my neighbours, I've said that the car park is nearly empty during the night time as only a few of my neighbours drives but it did not convince my landlord to give me a permit. What I've done instead I photocopied my parents permit. I had no problem for months until one time when I got sick and my car was on the car park for 2 weeks. Person checking the permits must have spotted that it's a photocopy and during those 2 weeks I've received 3 parking fines. I've told my landlord about the whole situation and they quickly found a neighbours that doesn't drive and gave me her permit for her bay but refused to helped with existing PCM fines.

    After reading internet forums I've decided to ignore it, but this week I've received 3 letters (each for each fine) from Trace Debt Recovery UK Ltd and to be honest I am getting a bit scared now. Do you guys know how serious this company is and what can really happen if I don't pay?

    Please see attached scans of the ticket and the letter that I've received.

    Thank you in advance,

    I can only help with what you tell me. Post up information (other than names and addresses!).

    I NEVER enter any appeals or court documentation on your behalf. This is your responsibility.

    Upload images to your thread like this .Email kati@legalbeagles.info if you can't upload images/documents. She doesn't own a crystal ball as far as i'm aware so link to your thread or tell her how to find it !

    If you want to tell someone YOU were driving, go to confession.

    I,I,I,I,I,I should be avoided unless you are Jim Diamond.
