  • £2 parking charge has gone to court

    In April 2018 we parked in an Excel car park, paid the fee but couldn't then pay the £2 extension fee online as their online system was not working. Rushed back to the car within 5 minutes but attendant was issuing a ticket and would not listen to the reason. I then appealed numerous times in writing over the next year but they just ignored me and kept adding £60 in charges. I didn't hear anything for about a year until today when i got a county court letter asking for £180. Any tips on what i should put in the appeal, apart from the facts and should I add that a court appearance will mean that we both will claim expenses for not being at work and the costs of a solicitor ? Any advice greatly appreciated, Thank you¬*

    Unfortunately you can't claim for a solicitor and your costs are limited to £95 max for loss of pay and cost of transport

    So 5 days after issue date acknowledge the claim using the details and password on the form, noting in the defence.¬* This gives you 33 days from date of issue to get you defence to court.

    What was the additional costs described as?¬* How long over were you?
