For most parking charge notices, you will have 28 days to either pay the fine or appeal the charge. After 28 days, the company is required to send a Notice to the Owner (the registered owner of the vehicle), even if the appeals process has not been completed. This provides an additional 28 days to pay the fine.

After the second 28-day period has passed and the fine is still not paid, fifty per cent of the original charge is added to what was originally owed, and you no longer have the ability to appeal the charge. After this, an enforcement agent may get involved. If more time passes and the charge still isn't paid, you can be subject to a sale of your goods for the charge and any additional fees incurred in the process.
