Small Claims Court

SMALL CLAIMS COURT

ES Parking Enforcement Ltd are dedicated to investing in legal action in order to pursue unpaid Parking Charge Notices (PCNs). Amateur legal professionals and pseudo-lawyers often post online advising that you should simply ignore your PCN as they are unenforceable in UK law. This is categorically incorrect; parking charges on private land are more enforceable than ever and we endeavour to instigate legal action wherever possible. Please note that a County Court Judgement could have a serious impact on future credit, making renting a property, applying for a credit card or any mortgage applications very difficult or impossible.

PARKINGEYE LIMITED v BARRY BEAVIS 2015

The highest court in the UK, the Supreme Court, have adjudicated that PCNs on private land are fully enforceable. In the case of PARKINGEYE LIMITED v BARRY BEAVIS 2015, it was decided that Parking Charge Notices were enforceable and legitimate as they act in the interests of the general public. It was also confirmed that charges do not have to reflect a genuine pre-estimate of loss in cases of breach of contract.

The full judgment of PARKINGEYE LIMITED v BARRY BEAVIS 2015 is here for you to read: https://www.supremecourt.uk/cases/docs/uksc-2013-0280-judgment.pdf

  • From the outset all drivers / keepers issued with a PCN are aware of Legal Action as it is clearly documented on our website. If the driver / keeper chooses to ignore all Parking Charge communication, ES Parking Enforcement Ltd will issue court proceedings.
  • Once the claim is issued ES Parking Enforcement will defend the case accordingly which may result in a Court Hearing or a Default Judgement being obtained.
  • If a judgement is obtained ES Parking Enforcement work alongside the largest High Court Enforcement agency to recover the outstanding debt.

* The above data will be updated once a month on this website. Updated on the 15/12/2016. The above clearly illustrates it is much better to pay parking charges rather than ignore them in the hope that they will go away or that they are not legally enforceable.
