While I was in England last November I stayed at a self catering apartment in Cheshire which had an allocated parking space, for which I was provided with a parking permit on check in. The parking permit was only a photocopy but I assumed this would be ok because it's what I was given by the apartment owner. During my stay I received a notice on my car saying that I was in violation of parking conditions by not displaying a valid parking permit, ie a photocopy instead of an original. I immediately contacted the property owner, who assured me she would sort it out.
I have since received an extra charge on my credit card from the car rental company which turns out to be the parking fine for the above mentioned notice. So obviously the property owner didn't do anything about it. I'm absolutely fuming!! I have written to the property owner, requesting that she reimburse me in the amount of the fine (100 pounds!!!!) but what happens if she doesn't? This is clearly a matter for her to sort because she didn't provide an original parking permit but a photocopy instead. Do I have any recourse? I have also written to ANPR (the issuer of the fine) but don't expect much from them.
Any info appreciated.
