THE LAW OF TRESPASS

Trespass in English law is an area of tort law broadly divided into three groups: trespass to the person, trespass to goods and trespass to land. Trespassing laws prohibit parking on private property without the owners consent. A land owner or an occupier can legally issue an enforceable Parking Charge Notice to any unauthorised vehicle that is parked on their land or site without permission and collect damages. The land owner or the occupier can claim damages in the form of compensation regardless of whether actual loss or damages has taken place. They can do that by issuing a parking charge notice (PCN) to the unauthorised vehicle/driver.

Parking Charge Notice (PCN)
A parking charge notice (PCN) may be issued at the scene of the improper parking or, in certain circumstances, by post. If you wish to find out more about a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) then please visit please visit Citizen Advice website.
