We investigate linear parabolic systems with coupled nonsmooth capacities and mixed boundary conditions. We prove generalized resolvent estimates in $W^-1,p$ spaces. The method is an appropriate modification of a technique introduced by Agmon to obtain $L^p$ estimates for resolvents of elliptic differential operators in the case of smooth boundary conditions. Moreover, we establish an existence and uniqueness result.
