    • its a 12mts contract else why would it say till 2021 and first month..   simply states they don't charge a joining fee clever marketing ploy as people don't read things. it IS a monthly payment, that runs for 12mts.   but anyway there is stuff and all anyone can do to you.   dx        
    • Hi Slick,   Amazingly fast reply, thank you!   According to the reference on the payment it says "ON 24 SEP BCC" and the payment cleared 25th September at 11:26   I was simply told to sign up on the website by a staff member in the gym, no further information was given to me by them. The website stated that it's a rolling monthly membership that could be cancelled at any time "No contract membership JUST £14.99 a month, until 2021*" As far as I am aware there was absolutely no minimum membership length, unless there's some small print I've missed somewhere. But Harlands haven't mentioned anything about me being obliged to pay for a certain length of time so... I've attached a picture to this post of what I signed up for.   Also, I'm not sure if this has any relevance at all but the building is plastered with £9.99/month signs EVERYWHERE yet it costs £14.99 when you go on the website. False advertising 🙄 Could perhaps use that as leverage in a letter if it comes to it, I dunno? 😂

    • 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!

Hi all

I hope you can help and advise me. Yesterday I recieved a letter from Optima Legal stating SPML are trying to obtain a possesion order due to arrears on my secured loan. The total arrears are £1348, this is 4 missed payments including £350 of their changes. The letter does not say what I need to do, only that I will be hearing from the court in due course. I have not slept at all last night, I am worrying myself to death, I am also terrified that we will all become homeless.

Can I stop this court hearing if I pay the arrears in full? I am hoping to borrow the money from my parents.

What can I expect at court?

Will I loose my home?

Please give me any advise.

I have tried calling the National Debt line, but could not get through.

 

Thanking you all in advance

hiya 2hapennys

 

you have come to the right place, im trying to help my friend facing eviction and she has been to court 4 times already there are some very helpful people and far more knowledgeabel than me i can only offer some support at the moment but pls give it today for others far more experienced to come along and give you correct info

 

pls do not despair though,,,, are you able to scan up the letter but take out all personal info from it and then others to see exactly what you have received

 

do you have -

 

- have you tried scanning and uploading the image to Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket?

 

If not, once it's scanned on your PC put it somewhere you can find it (desktop/folder marked SPML etc). Next go to Photobucket and register.

 

Once you've done that, you need to click on "upload photos and video" (box on top left of home page). Click "choose files" which will bring up your files in a separate box. Find the image and click "open", and it will start uploading automatically.

 

Once that's done it will open up and you can click "edit this image" just underneath the picture. Remember to remove all personal info (I use decorate/draw to do this), then click "save and continue". It will take you back to the smaller version of the image, and there should be 4 link options showing underneath - you want to right click and copy the top one "email and IM". Or as I prefer the Second option – your choice though.

 

Now come back on here and click the icon above the text box with the world and little chain type piccie, right click and paste the url and you're done.

 

*******

Hi 2 pennies

 

 

Hope you are getting on with the stuff PMd you with. Obviously if you can get it below £500 that will give you some breathing space. Bu their tactic is to come to an arrangement and then apply unlawful charges in excess of the overage you pay towards the arrears so that your situation gets worse not better they then apply to the court saying you have broke the arrangement and can they please now take your house. Barstewards. The charges and the suspended order - you will need to fight them both tooth and nail inch by inch.

 

You have got to fight this tooth and nail. I'll be popping up now and then to see how you're getting on. In the meantime deal with the stuff I sent you privately and PM me with any specific advice.

 

Cheers EIE. Keep the faith.

Hi

 

There is now a pre action protocol in place where the lender has to prove to the court it has done everything it can to stop repossession. If you make arrangements with your lender to repay your arrears it should stop the case going to court, if it does go to court and you can show you are able to pay off the arrears then the court will more than likely grant a suspended possession order, this is where the possession is suspended as long as you keep to any arrangments made. Please let me know if you would like any further help. I worked in mortgage arrears/mortgage shortfall for 15 years.

But resist a suspended order at all costs.

 

It is a possession order albeit suspended.

 

They will then continue to apply fees to show your alleged breaking of the deal, then asset strip your equity through an outrageous early repayment charge.

 

They are no longer in the mortgage business. They are in the repossession business.

 

Wonder.? I'm guessing you worked for a reputable mainstream lender right? What you've described is the way it should work. What I've described is the way the sub prime market works.

 

Resist suspended possession orders. They are too easy to convert into full possession orders. In any case sub prime lenders couldn't give 2 hoots for the Civil Justice Council's pr-action protocols and will even lie to the court to say they have followed them. Trust me on this. I am 100% right.

Keep the faith. EiE.

The court papers arrived today, got rather upset about it. Not sure how to fill them in, and some of the questions are terrible, with I have somewhere to live etc. Because it is a joint loan, do we both have to fill the papers in or will one set be ok.

 

Thanks All

You can actually respond on line. The court should have given you some log in details. One set will do providing you've both signed. Also on line you can add your detailed defence.

 

Once that's done I'll help you structure your witness statement.

 

Cheers.

Hi there, I would not advise replying to the possession claim on line. It's better to fill in the forms and take them (or post by recorded delivery) to the local court. Defence forms have a habit of going missing on line.

 

If you need help with a statement for Q.27 of the form (or any other part of the form) let us know.
