    • Thank you Bankfodder.  I used the term frustrated agreement purely based on my own research and what I found on the Govt's website, especially in relation to Covid.  My situation appeared to fit but if it doesn't, it doesn't. The length of time the actual works themselves will take is not written into the agreement but I was told 2 weeks, they are doing the interior ceiling and electrics too. I was prepared to accept the new date of 7th Dec until I was told I couldn't speak to their Director for two weeks and then found out that they haven't applied for building regulations yet, this is something else they are doing on my behalf.  As they can't order anything until they have the regs through I can't see how the roof is in the process of being made (which is what they keep claiming). I contacted the CAB as I wanted this wrapped up for the weekend and had two conflicting recommendations on this forum.  One to just let the credit card company handle things and others saying I must give more time.  I'm not complaining, am grateful for advice - just getting more and more confused as to what I can/can't do. If I can avoid it at all I would rather not go through another 6 weeks of this, waiting for them to prove that they can't manage the Dec.date.  By that stage it could well be feasible that the roof is in the manufacturing stage, where as at the moment it can't be, which would further complicate things. Based on all this and what the CAB said I sent the email below last night and received Homeview's response this morning. If it came to it that I retracted what I've said and allowed them to go ahead for 7th Dec. and they didn't manage that date, wouldn't it be the credit card company that would recover the deposit - not me?  BTW I raised a dispute with Capital One last night.

    • oh dear  i think you are in for a big shock   i doubt very much the loan is settled there will be £100's in unlawful fees i bet   we have numerous threads here about them in 2016 they were residing at   PO Box 1044 ipswich IP1 9YA   i would be sending them an SAR  don't ever ring them.   have you checked your deeds online recently? check they are on there. and has the loan ever been subject to legal action?   if not that would be a rare thing to us.   https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-8889411648654839:3134625398&q=Skye Loans&oq=Skye Loans&gs_l=partner-generic.12...0.0.1.951169.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0..0.0.csems%2Cnrl%3D13...0.0....34.partner-generic..1.0.0.1dXrS2w9t2c    
    • doesn't say will anything. read it properly and carefully.   only the owner of a debt can get one of the many fake/tame paperwork only solicitors to issue any proceedings and they would have to abide by the courts pre action protocol of 30  days letter first!   as it's owner...i can try and instruct my dog to sit, if it does is a totally different matter. if my neighbour, who doesn't own my dog, tries it, it would ignore them.   the bottom line is there is nothing anyone can do to you. gyms don't do court gym debts don't appear on credit files.   any DCA they might get to write to you ARE NOT BAILIFFS any a DCA has ZERO legal powers on any debt, no matter what it's type.   dx    
    • This letter arrived in the post today, please advise how to proceed. I know the forums say they won't action but am very worried about this
    • go save his bacon clint and put him right...   dx

    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

Ok,

 

So I have been following this thread for a while and I think TLD and Patma have been doing some sterling work to get Fred through this stinking mess of ****(my asterisks as I couldn't print what I would call it!!)

 

What I want to ask is - I know there is now a date to be in court in November but I am confused - is Fred also in court tomorrow as originally planned?

I wonder what the "a couple of legal actions" that were underway in 2006 were.... And if any of them has been discussed further with the audit committee yet.

That's very interesting AT. I'll do some more digging into that. Did you notice in that report it also says one insurance claim was incurred in that year. We know what that was;)

Thankyou Feebee,

The hearing due to take place tomorrow has been adjourned until 17th November, on the advice of Devon and Cornwall Police's Senior Legal Adviser, who is being very helpful.

The claimant's didn't like it at all but the judge gave them no choice.:D

What they probably like even less is the fact that the Police now seem to have sided with Fred.

Hi Patma,

 

I was trying to get my head around all the information which has been added to this site in the last couple of weeks - while I was away on holiday - and didn't want to have to go back over everything to work out where things were.

 

Now I am going to have to wait until I am back from my holiday in November to find out what happens as I go off to the Canary Islands on the 16th November!!

I think that two students were injured on the campus and made personal injury claims against the college in the previous year. When you look at the recent photos we took and see the ramshackle manner in which the paths, roadways car parks and barriers are maintained at that college it's probably not surprising but we don't actually have any details of either of these two personal injury claims other than that both were being defended by-------->------->-----> The college and their insurers!!:eek::eek:

Hi, Just to reassure everyone that we haven't disappeared down a black hole, just waiting for news at the moment and having a few days catching up with life.

I sent Plymouth College of Art's Finance Director(George Dexter) :D a FOI request on 24th August, which he carefully ignored till I cc'd a reminder a week later to the person with overall responsibility for FOI and then I got a terse acknowledgment from Mr Dexter informing me he had instructed a colleague to deal with it.

I'd asked for Plymouth College of Art's Procurement and Disposals Policy, so it will be interesting to see what the document reveals and how their "official "policy tallies with what happened with the barrier.

FOI's have already produced some very valuable information that have shown up some rather big porkies :D

Oh, I don't know, Middenmess, I haven't been able to get on for the last couple of days, and usually there would be another 3-4 pages to catch up with, so this is a bit of a relief! :-D

I understand another FOI request has also been made of the college. This one is concerned primarily with establishing the Data Protection policies with respect to the CCTV recording, and the audit policy to be followed when a potentially criminal incident is captured on CCTV and any captured images are to be used for evidential purposes. The applicant has also I believe requested confirmation that the entire VHS tape from which PCAD took the 5 minutes when Fred was at the barrier has been securely stored in its original format with a view to forcing the college to release the footage which shows the penultimate and any other preceeding students/lecturers exiting the car park that day. Imagine the problems it might cause Plymouth College of Art if the person before Fred also had to lift up the broken barrier manually?

 

Being a FOI request concerning data protection and related issues the request also extends to the 'Data Retention Policy' of Plymouth College of Art. I personally struggle to believe that it is standard procedure for all records of an item which costs the college several thousands of pounds might be destroyed after three years, especially when such an item is subject to litigation and legal contest. I expect to learn that the data retention policy at Plymouth College of Art is actually far greater than three years, this was certainly the case for student records which implies to me at least that either this information is being witheld unlawfully or it has been destroyed deliberately and just as unlawfully.

 

This request is not being dealt with by George and the person making the request did have the common courtesy to serve notice upon the college that there might be some 'conflict of interest'. ;) I do hope that a certain department at Plymouth College of Art has not been trying to keep this matter some kind of sordid little secret and apologise on behalf of the person making the request if they have let the cat out the bag.

 

Our sources intimate that Lyons Davidson might be desperately racking up rather a large amount in further costs for Plymouth College of Art attempting to convince Devon and Cornwall Constabulary that they 'might have got it wrong'.:eek: Since Lyons Davidson spent almost the entirety of 2008 in dialogue with the police before finally being told point blank that no record of a caution exists we can only anticipate one outcome but since it was Lyons Davidson who appeared to invent the caution in the first instance on 5th September 2006 you can't blame them for trying to save their own skin in a matter which is likely to blow up spectacularly for them in any hearing.:D:D

 

Apart from that alls well and I'm filling the hours on a particularly taxing problem for another Cagger. TLD

Yes, it is Davenport-Lyons, as seen on Watchdog, who specialise in the copyright issues, and they have, as far as I know, no connection whatsoever to Lyons-Davidson, who represent Plymouth College of Art, or maybe Royal Sun Alliance, I have kind of lost the plot here. :razz:

 

Anyway, just to clarify that as far as we know, there are no connection between Davenport-Lyons and Lyons-Davidson. Incidentally, my home town is Lyon(s) in France, and there are no connections there either. :-D

 

Ive been watching this thread for ages now.. I logged on to see how it all went at the begining of sept, and Im gutted that its been put off for a couple of months.

 

but love the fact that its all going to be over very soon... Patma, TLD et all great job, and fantastic reading....

Hi Patma

 

it hasnt been an anti climax, its been compulsive reading as far as Im concerned. I still cant believe that they are still going through with this.. I suppose its past the point of no return... but still, its all the stress and the work you, fred, TLD and everyone esle have put in. I still cant believe everything Ive read.. .mind you the best bit in my mind was watching the cctv footage... that was just classic... and I had to re-read loads of posts yesterday because I thought hang on Ive missed something...

 

I still cant believe that Fred wasnt cautioned...

 

Keep going, I just looking forward to you winning this now.

Well with all the info being passed to and fro DL must now that either Plymouth College has lied to them or they are willfully going along with a flawed case, either way they are in for a hammering themselves as I cannot see how they would have a defence themselves for the SRA.

 

If they had any sense once they 'realised' not all was as it seems they would have pulled the plug on PCAD, these pages will show at a future date that they were not unaware!!!!

I agree, Yorky, however we have to remember that solicitors do rather stick together and watch one another's backs. We'll soon see how this goes hopefully though. ;)
