  1. Question on EPC requirements: Expiry at end of the year - if want to enter into a tenancy agreement within next few weeks, does Landlord need to re-new the EPC? If tenancy is above the max £ level (>100k) does this mean Landlord does not need to re-new the EPC and does not need to adhere to the minimum energy efficiency requirements? Current EPC shows E. Thanks for clarity.
  2. In July 2015 I contacted a firm called Savi EPC Ltd about an EPC survey for a fee of £9.95 to them. With a few days this had escalated to over £74, I refused to pay and was threatened with court action. Two years later Christopher Whatcott of Savi EPC wrote to demand payment of the debt. The owner/director of the company is a Chris Whatcott. In February 2017 he was sentenced to 8 months and disqualified from being a company director for 10 years at St Albans Crown Court. A press report can be found at: http://energyassessormagazine.com/panels_boss_whatcott_sentencing/ The company, and others, he ran is dissolved. I received a letter from a firm of solicitors who said they were acting a for Mr Christoher Whatcott T/AS Low Cost EPC (not Savi EPC Ltd). Nevertheless, the alleged debt is clearly and unambiguously from the company Christopher Whatcott was the director of and which is dissolved. I reminded Christpher Whatcott of his criminal conviction and that I didn’t think it was legal for him to chase these debts. He told me he would no longer communicate with me. Does anyone have any information on Christopher Whatcott and Savi EPC since he was sentenced in February 2017. Is it legal for a disqualified director to collect debts for the dissolved company he was the owner of. He told me Hertfordshire trading standards knew he was chasing amounts owed to his business.
  3. I was driving in Hungary last summer and paid to drive on the motorway like i did the year before, i then received a letter from Euro Carparks EPC stating that i had been fine £54 but it was not clear what it was for t hey sent me picture photos, I tried to telephone them put after several attempts gave up because no one answered i email them and they took a couple for weeks to reply they said I had not paid the correct toll for my vehicle, I paid the fine and then received a letter stating that it had gone up to £185. because i had paid the fine i ignored one month late I get another letter stating that I had paid no fine and owed £185 and that it had to be paid by the 28th March, I emailed them and sent a recorded letter as advised to do by CAB. and again I waited a week until I received an email stating that I now owe £127. and I quote on this email it said ''Please note that any further communication which does not contain new pertinent information or evidence will not be entertained or replied to. Where do I stand do I pay it and put it down to experience or where do I stand if i don't pay it.
  4. My friend's son (Mr Smith junior) has received a pcn from ECP via an ANPR camera for staying approx. 20 mins too long on a car park in town. When the letter from EPC arrived, it was addressed to plain old Mr Smith (no forename or initials) so unfortunately it was Mr Smith (senior) who opened the letter thinking it was his. What are the best options for Mr Smith to defend this charge since it appears that a £100 charge is excessive for 20 mins.
  5. Hi I placed an order for an EPC with a company called Low Cost ECP but didn't have to pay anything up front. By the time they rang back the next day, I had decided to use somebody else, so cancelled the order on the phone. A few minutes later they sent me an email: Our records indicate that you ordered an Energy Performance Certificate from us on 21/09/2015 and then subsequently cancelled your order. We are writing to advise you that you are required to pay for the service received up until the time of cancellation. The amount of £9.95 is now due as per the terms and conditions of the order. Please be advised that if payment is not received within 24 hours, a late payment administration charge of £14.95 will be added to the order as per the terms and conditions of the order. The above mentioned charge covers our reasonable costs associated with collecting outstanding monies. The amount charged is not proportionate to the amount outstanding. I replied & told them that £9.95 for a 38 second phone conversation was an unreasonable charge & that I wouldn't be paying it. I got no response until 24 hours later, when I got another email: You were given 24 hours with which to make this payment but payment has so far not been received. We advised that in the event payment was not received with 24 hours of the order being cancelled, a late payment charge of £14.95 would be added to the order. Unfortunately, as at the time of sending this email, this payment has not been received. We have therefore been left with no alternative but to apply a late payment charge of £14.95 to the order. This brings the total amount outstanding to £24.90. If payment remains outstanding by 29/09/2015 and in the event we need to write to you then a further administration charge of £50.00 will be added to cover our costs. So far I haven't paid this, but I'm wondering what rights, if any, I have here. It seems that they are charging me £9.95 for a phone call, as if I'd cancelled the 'order' before they rang, there would have been no charge. Part of me is tempted to just pay it & forget about it, but part of me wants to fight them until they give up. I assume what they are doing is legal? Presumably somewhere in the process there was a link to their T&Cs which stated the cancellation policy, but how far can they push this? If I just continue to ignore them, could they end up taking me to the small claims court, sending debt collectors around, affecting my credit rating etc.? Would appreciate any comments cheers, Rob
