    • 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!

Steven, happyowner is right my issue was regarding late payment of the annual site fee (due April 1st) and the manner in which they dealt with that issue. The current issues being fought by owners on the park have wider implications. I am just supportive of there actions.

Typical is this your way of saying "no comment"

In the last ten years I have never seen so many empty bases on this site as there are now.

And does the fact that you new owners are paying more than the rest of us crack you up as well

 

 

No Comment to what Just-ice? Unlike yourself, Im always happy to answer any question. I seen the little dance you do to avoid Monchenblues's questions. You were getting good at avoiding them too ;).

I had a chat about it and it isint that much. At the end of the day, I knew the site fees when I bought, and if I wasnt happy with them, I wouldnt have bought.

 

You cant dampen my spirits with all your negativity. :grin:

Larry i am afraid to disappoint you but at no point did management say my caravan was to be moved off if not paid by the deadline. Offer of Payment was made 2 days after the deadline (as explained in previous posts) but was refused point blank. Payment was due in April + i had paid a large proportion of the fee which in most cases would count for something.

Im sorry, but I dont believe you. I know fees are due in March, not April. So thats a lie straight away. AND you paid a LARGE portion aswell eh. I would have thought you would have mentioned that in your original thread. . . . . if it were true!

 

Give it up red. Start telling the truth and stop digging. :wink:

Unfortunately most of us are not computer litterate, we are slow,struggle with typing and spelling. we may not have the equipment or the Knowledge to scan - edit - and attach files.

 

The antagonists know that the bait will be taken by somebody.

Their sole purpose seems to be to disrupt or destroy this thread.

They have many questions but NO answers.

I am guilty of taking the bait. even though I try to resist.

 

I think your destroying this tread all by yourself.

You are incapable of holding a valid argument. You just throw rules and big words at it to avoid answering the real questions.

Regarding point 300 I agree with all, its been done to death now and will decend into pointless bickereing so I would shut it down.

 

I agree with Happy Larry, we all know the fees have to be paid on time, we all know the consequences of not paying, he was given an extended deadline and missed that, so he got pulled. Really should have paid on time, if he then agreed a new date he should of met it, what else could Golden Sands do?

 

I personally do not want owners on the park who have not paid their site fees, I have to pay mine and I dont want to subsidise others who dont.

This is a luxury purchase, not a fundamental basic item needed to exist, so if you cant afford to pay it then fair enough, but be big enough to deal with it and move on.

 

Shut it down, I need something else to live for!
