I went to Xercise4Less gym around 5-6 months ago for a 1 day pass having been once previously, the car park was free. This time, no member of staff even mentioned to register my car or anything else so after finishing, I came home and 3 days later, I had a parking ticket from SIP. I was so angry and upset that Xercise4Less did not advise or ask me to sign my car in. I called them and they said to ring SIP, so I did and they said to pay a small admin fee and that will be all.
I said I would not pay a single penny as it was not my fault and I should not have to pay. In the end, they said the matter is over. I have now after 3-4 months later received a letter stating Claim Form from County Court Business Centre asking me to pay £230!
This includes a £155 for parking and solicitor fees. What should I do as I should not have to pay anything? Someone said to ask for settlement but I am unsure?
