    • With regard to your question on post 207 if you bring in the points that I made on the validity of the contract they are supposed to have with Peel holdings then mention that there are already doubts about the validity of the contracts that are being used by the PPCs and the OPS is a classic example. Once you are on there you should then try and get your other point in after that.   if it is in connection with the extra charge of £60 remind the Judge that the charge has been defined by many Court across England that the charge is an abuse of process which was covered in PE v Beavis at point 198    " The charge has to be and is set at a level which enables managers to recover the costs of operating the scheme"  IE the £100 charge covers all their expenses so nothing should be added.   as their WS claims an extra £60 that could be judged as perjurious since it is an additional sum that should be known by VCS and the author of the WS as a double recovery. Especially as they have already lost in Court for the same reason.   Another cause to prove that they do not comply with their Code of Conduct. file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/CamScanner%2008-05-2020%2016.34.59.pdf  Byelaws are statutory not arbitrary as their WS said on no .42 .   Best of Luck.   The above URL does not work but this one does http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showtopic=133001    [20.1 is where  VCS  lost then 20.2 where they appealed and lost again .

    • 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!

[edit]

To make £2000. you will have to rent your van out for the peak weeks.

When do your kids get to use it?

You can't advertise vacancies in your caravan window. So you will have to pay for advertising, and for someone to clean the van between customers.

you can not get the same money that the camp charges because holidaymakers have to register with the camp and pay to be able to use the facilities.

With the extra £100 per month you need to clear £3200.next season (dream on).

[edit]

6 and 8 yr olds will struggle to play the machines.

if you have to let your van out you won't be there to use the W-fi

ok so you didn't like the entertainment. big deal!

And you didn't like Having to acompanny your own kid's to the arcade.

What kind of parent are you?

These are all recent changes.

Answer the original Question!

I can't believe some people? Why are you moaning? if you don't like it just leave. Why are you trying to ruin it for everybody on the camp who are happy with the changes.

 

The letter I received said that if you wasnt happy the camp would give you your site fees back. You can't get fairer then that. My agreement says that if I leave in July I don't get any refund.

 

I'v been on the park for 3 years and I do not believe that anyone is unhappy with the changes. If Author was still the owner we would have a 8 month season with poor entertainment and a crappy club. We now have 12 months, brilliant entertainment and a lovely club.

 

I will finish by saying, if your not happy why stay? I wouldn't pay £3000 a year to be unhappy. Get a life and stop ruining ours. Some people just love moaning.

Hi

You cant buy a caravan on a park and expect it to stay exactly the same year after year after year, that simply does not happen!! At least the changes on Golden Sands are to benefit the customers on it.

I think it is all a matter of choice and if there are parks that take owners on for free then you should move to one, I really dont think anything is going to change at Golden Sands.

If you dont want to use your caravan in the winter why dont you book it out and get the rent for it? If you only got £100 per week you could get up to £1,600 in extra income???

I simply dont see the big deal in it all, as mentioned before all of my friends (who we met on the park) love it and not one would want to go back to how it was.

We are going to upgrade our caravan next month so we have double glazing and central heating to use through the winter, the point in telling you this is that thay offered us £8000 for our caravan in px and we only paid £9,500 6 years ago, they cant be just after our money as they wont be making much on the sales if they offer all owners these types of deals!

are you related by anychance, your give a good repo for the site,,,, we have been ripped of a caravan owner still paying for our deed,,,no one is nice in the caravan indurstry take it from me

there are non so blind as those who will not see.

Been there done that. I do not want the hassle with the damage they cause.

At least I'm answering your questions why arn't you?

My site fees over the years have helped to make the site what it was (the best in the area) So why should I move off for you to make more profit.

If you can't remember any improvements, then you haven't been here as long as you are trying to make out.

the answers you have given are only the things that have happened since the new management came in.

People who disagree with this management don't get slated they get ousted!

There is no compromise, they won't even discuss it. they want us to accept it or move off. Well I don't intend to go anywhere.

i have been one of them site fees gone up to much over the time we had our caravan not on your site though,, we are paying for a caravan we do not have now, we sold it,,cut our losses and still paying for it im afraid, caravans owners are a law upon themselves. we will never buy one again and will also advise people to do the same BEWARE DO NOT BUY A CARAVAN

TO THE MANAGEMENT OF GOLDEN SANDS.

 

If you want a happy caravan site why not give the option of either 8 or 12 months instead of having the attitude of "If you don't like it, move off the site":(

Hi jacktherat

I agree with what you are saying. Everyone should have a choice.

Has anybody checked if they will be liable for council tax on a second home?

£595 is just the begining.

I have just checked with the council, becuase it is a holiday site license council tax does not need to be paid, that is only if it is residential. Had me worried for a minute then.

 

I dont intend posting any more, my point was only that we are really happy with all of the changes and especially the 12 month thing, it is a shame there are some people who are not but I guess that is life isnt it? You cant please all of the people all of the time.

 

Byeee:wink:

From a happy owner...

1. The letter we all received only gave you 14 days to decide. I think your agreement entitles you to more than that. Your agreement is like a contract and is in place for years aslong as you pay your fees. So if they want your base they should buy back the agreement.

2. If you don't believe people are unhappy, why are you on this forum accusing them of spoiling it for you?

3. The "lovely club" has less room for people,and even the passage-ways are full of machines. You call that an improvement? I don't think so!

I just happened to read this thread out of boredom and insomnia, and find it awfully funny that, when just-ice started naming faults and making points, 3 random people happen to stumble across this site and thread, with all of their posts on this thread, who all happen to have caravans there, defending it!

 

Honestly, it's so obvious that you've all been in touch with each other, asking each other to come on and back you up. Kaldan, you say you've had a caravan there for 26 years, correct? Then why wait until now to come on and defend the park? Surely if it was that good, at some stage over the last ten years at least, you would've came on here and started a thread about how nice it is.

 

Seriously folks, just admit you're all part of a set up, more than likely from the park itself, and just-ice makes valid points that you can't answer. Grow up!

 

And just-ice, sounds like you're better off away from this park and it's little cronies. Imagine all the beer and food you can buy with the money you save, and enjoy a little caravan visit with your family, knowing you don't have idiots like them as neighbours...

Thank's for your comments, and the advice is sound.

Unfortunately If you try to move off site they threaten to charge a ridiculous price to disconnect and move the van off the base.

Alternatively you are offered virtual scrap value for your van which they then sell, making at least 300% profit +.

I don't mind people making a profit, but profiteering is a different matter!

At least Dick Turpin had the decency to wear a MASK!

So, in other words, pay up stupid money if you want to keep your caravan, or we'll sell it and make lots of money? Lovely bunch of people they are!
