    • Correcting a prior post. Oliver at least got fed every day didn't he. Tories will see the kids go without food for a week or two wont they.      
    • It was because the last day fell on a weekend so they had until the end of yesterday to reply. No reply and I have Requested Judgement this morning, I have requested full payment by the 3rd November. I think a week to for the to resolve is reasonable. I don't hold much hope of them even responding to that so feel it will need to be taken further.   What is my next step if I don't receive the full refund by 3rd November?
    • I did see that but I haven't seen any announcement.
    • Dodo is just a scapegoat - and well rewarded at that.   So here we are about 8 weeks and approaching 2 months from: (during which failing to even collect 250 spit samples a day  @£500M)   BBC Breakfast - Matt Hancock on coronavirus testing (03Sept20).mp4
    • Good morning,   Thanks for the reply.  This gym involves Legacy Leisure, the gym I use is Rutland Sports Park, though my account is linked to Friesland Sports Centre as that’s where I initially signed up (they have 5 different sites all working as one in this area).  It was a council owned and run gym before they brought in this third party to do it for them (and reduced the quality, but that’s a story for another day).   As suggested I have cancelled the direct debit.  I received another email last night telling me that they would freeze my account for a further 6 months for an ‘admin fee’ of £5 per month.  I will be telling them that’s not good enough.   Apparently I owe them £25 for an admin error on their behalf from about a year or so ago (they mentioned this at the time but said they would look in to it, and never mentioned it again).  I’m happy to pay what I owe outside of this £26 28-days notice fee.   So: what should I do next?   Thanks again,   Sam

    • 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!

thanks for the advice, i do have soloicitors on it but i am worried that they won't be able to stop the sale in time.

If i get this ex parte injunction, would i have to take it to their office in putney London, as the car i think is being held in Enfield London to be autioned off"!! I only know this because i thought it was stolen and was told by the police that lbl have it.

jf uk go to the supreme court in london and request a search on your name give them a date you signed the contract with lbl and check that the bill of sale was registered. (within 7 days of you signing) this will only cost you a fiver for a copy if you go in personally room e17 at temple high court. do this asap it will help you big time in court for your injunction if they registered late or not at all. good luck

The injunction can be process-served on all parties - LBL, the agents & the auction house if need be - and such inunctions are always served by court bailiffs

you need to go to the closest court to the office of lbl that you dealt with..or where the car is being kept....when i got my injunction the judge got me to serve it on mm.. the only reason i am telling you to check the bill of sale is if it is not valid the judge will be more in your favour.. but as fleeced said earlier get moving on it...dont waste a day!!!

yes..unfortunately i don't qualify for leagal aid, so they are looking to see what else they can do..It doesn't really look hopeful, i have read some other replies and a few peopl have said that there cars were sold within hours. I have received an early settlement calculation letter which says

when i took the loan out, and how much i owe..

Thats about it.

JF, the only delay you can come up with I guess is t say that you are going to pay for it, tell them that you are sending a cheque, I know from some people this trick has worked well, this should give you a little more time for your injunction application.

 

Only thing I would say tho is I am not aware that there is such thing as a Bill of Sale being registered late, at court we do not register anything with out a reasonable answer, the master will normally use his discretion if he believes there is a genuine reason that the BoS was being presented late, I know we charge a fee for late registeration, the court cannot just register a late BoS for the sake of it.

 

Did you have an expensive car ? it certainly sounds it if you owe 8k.

 

Come back and let us know.

I have been sent a letter from lbl and they intend to sell it.. The loan was for £3k, the £8.5k they are asking for is intrest and default letters, calls, etc...My car was a mercedes..

They have told me i can collect my belongings that was in the car.

If that is the case, then I cannot comprehend why on earth you aren't following Frustrated's lead and going for an immediate ex-parte injunction that would prevent sale of the car and it's likely return!

They will flog your car for peanuts and then carry on their relentless pursuit of the gargantuan and unlawful charges they have applied to your account.

The Judge will not think "They are entitled to loan payments, charges AND THE CAR", he will think "This must be halted and explained in a Court of Law"

Do not underestimate just how many other cases against these crooks are currently going on in the Courts.

fleeced ...as a matter of intrest have just checked section 8 of bills of sales act 1878 ammneded act 1882 unless bill of sale is registered in 7 days of signing it is unenforceable and void..

Having seen the above post I realize this may be closing the stable door after the horse has bolted but For gawds sake DON'T post any info on this or any other thread/site which can identify you such as make of car, value of loan or amount claimed by LBL to be outstanding otherwise cos they trawl these forums & they'll be 1 jump ahead all the time

 

Do as advised seek an ex party injunction to stop them disposing of the car & even returning it to you. If you don't follow the advice of those who have been there, done that (eg Fleeced) then you'll lose the car.......period

Correct but the High Court will allow late registration provided theres a good reason

 

Now as the person affected if you know of no reason as to why it should have been registered late then you may wish to mention this to the court in any subsequent litigation;)

Mr Depressed,

If dear old LBL are so fine then why are they paying people off rather than face their business coming under the microscope of a court trial? And I am not talking about dropping a few charges here and there, I am talking about umpteen examples of paying thousands out to those who dare to trouble the courts and challenge these sheisters.

Also, to correct you on a point; to "hand the car back" would mean that LBL had some previous possession of the particular vehicle. As regular viewers to this forum will have twigged, the cars are secured by a Bill of Sale, a legal document that requires (as do all legal documents) full explanation before signing - that explanation is never offered with your beloved LBL rendering it all somewhat dubious.

Furthermore, most of these posts are made by people who, yes, had their loans from LBL - however most have also paid LBL a damn sight more back than they borrowed and are still facing unlawful seizure of their vehicles by these sharks

Dear Fleeced73, you have posted deeply libellous comments which I suggest you withdraw.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sharks are noble creatures which only hunt when hungry and do not deserve to be associated with the behaviours you describe.

BW don't you think such remarks should have been made via PM rather than on the open forum..............or are you trying to prove something. Libellous or not I find it deeply offensive that someone, who isn't a mod, should chide another member who I know for their comments

 

If you are anyone else is unhappy with a post they, like you have a remedy,.......report the post by hitting the triangle & let a mod decide
