    • So if you're expecting a baby in the next couple of weeks not only can you not buy baby clothes or bedding in Tesco but he also wanted to stop new parents getting the stuff online?  I'm sure I read somewhere that non-essential retailers who have had to close may still deliver.  Does this mean you can get non-essential items in your supermarket shop if it's delivered but not if you shop in store?    This sort of stupidity isn't to do with the virus, it's a pure power play surely.

    • In fact I can see that it cost 20 quid and it's for eight-year-olds. I'm afraid that you've had about eight months use out of it – it's certainly not worth going to court about and frankly I don't think there's much you can do. The rule is that good should be of satisfactory quality and remain that way for a reasonable period of time. Satisfactory quality depends on the item, the price paid, what it is intended for – and any other relevant circumstances. Although I can imagine that if people thought they were only going to last eight months, nobody would buy them – at the end of the day it may well be that you couldn't have expected much more life from it – may be in the hands of a young child. In terms of finding the sequence of voice commands to access other functions, have you tried looking at YouTube? There are often all sorts of very surprising little videos on YouTube that can be a great help. I'm afraid that you're probably just going to have to accept it.   Incidentally, the retailer is absolutely wrong simply to say that you have no redress because it is older than six months. Six months has nothing to do with it. It's really about satisfactory quality – but the problem here is that it is such a cheap item – that even if it is not satisfactory, it scarcely worth making trouble. If you want to make trouble then we will help you – but it probably is much more effort than it's worth

    • 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!

Send me a PM and I'll ask admin to change it.


When you get a reply from Halifax, post whatever they send you up onto this thread removing any personal details, and someone will have a look and advise you if it's enforceable or not.


Remember when you send the CCA request, send it recorded and don't sign it.


Have you any charges you can claim ?

Also myself and my wife have a combined debt of approx £13000 with 5-6 different creditors. We couldnt keep up all minimum payments therefore we are going through a debt management company called Debt Specialists.


Any helpful hints and advice from yourself or anyone else would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Scott

There's bound to be charges you can reclaim from your creditors, have you thought about that.


Regarding the CCA, you coulld send this letter.........


Account In Dispute




Dear Sir/Madam


Thank you for your letter of xx/xx/xx, the contents of which have been noted.


You have failed to respond to my legal request to supply me a true copy of the original Consumer Credit Agreement for the above account.


On the **DATE** I wrote to you requesting a copy of the credit agreement and other information under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (Sections 77-79).


On **DATE** a member of your staff signed for delivery of my written request and I have an electronic proof of delivery showing their signature and the date.


To date you have failed to comply with these requests in any way, whether by confirmation of receipt of the request or by supplying the requested documents.


These documents I requested should be readily available as proof of your legal right to collect this account under the Consumer Credit Act 1974.


In my letter of the **DATE** I made a formal request for a copy of the signed, executed credit agreement for the above account under section 77(1) of the Consumer Credit Act 1974. In addition a full statement of this account should have been sent to me detailing all debits and credits to the account.





You are aware that the Consumer Credit Act allows 12 working days for a request for a true copy of a credit agreement to be carried out before your client enters into a default situation.


These limits have expired.


As you are no doubt aware section 77(6) states:


If the creditor fails to comply with Subsection (1)


(a) He is not entitled , while the default continues, to enforce the agreement.



Therefore this account has become unenforceable at law.


As you have Failed to comply with a lawful request for a true, signed copy of the said agreement and other relevant documents mentioned in it, Failed to send a full statement of the account and Failed to provide any of the documentation requested.


Consequentially any legal action you pursue will be averred as both UNLAWFUL and VEXATIOUS.


Furthermore I shall counterclaim that any such action constitutes unlawful harassment.


Please note you may also consider this letter as a statutory notice under section 10 of the Data Protection Act to cease processing any data in relation to this account with immediate effect.


This means you must remove all information regarding this account from your own internal records and from my records with any credit reference agencies.


Should you refuse to comply, you must within 21 days provide me with a detailed breakdown of your reasoning behind continuing to process my data.


It is not sufficient to simply state that you have a ‘legal right’; You must outline your reasoning in this matter and state upon which legislation this reasoning depends.


Should you not respond within 14 days I expect that this means you agree to remove all such data.


Furthermore you should be aware that a creditor is not permitted to take ANY

Action against an account whilst it remains in dispute.


The lack of a credit agreement is a very clear dispute and as such the following applies.


* You may not demand any payment on the account, nor am I obliged to offer any payment to you.

* You may not add further interest or any charges to the account.

* You may not pass the account to a third party.

* You may not register any information in respect of the account with any credit reference agency.

* You may not issue a default notice related to the account.



I reserve the right to report your actions to any such regulatory authorities as I see fit.

You have 14 days from receiving this letter to contact me with your intentions to resolve this matter which is now a formal complaint.


I would appreciate your due diligence in this matter.


I look forward to hearing from you in writing.


Yours faithfully


Remember, print your name, don't sign.
