    • 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,

 

I received a debt recovery notice from Inter-Credit International Ltd. it states;

As you have ignored all previous letters (no previous letters was sent) the DVLA is currently preparing a claim against you as the registered keeper of an unlicensed vehicle (i sold the vehicle almost a year ago) Should you wish to avoid this action, you must pay an out of court settlement of £80 immediately, otherwise legal action through the Courts may commence and your vehicle (which i no longer own) may be clamped and impounded.

 

I phoned the DVLA to ask what this was for but they said they could not help me and said i would need to contact the debt company. So i contacted the debt company and apparently i did not register the vehicle on time and had to pay the fine.

 

From what i can remember i bought the car for my son and registered it on my name and my address and insured him as a second driver. After a while my son no longer needed the car and kept it in his garage, so i put the car on SORN. Then i registered it to his address but kept it on my name. I notified the DVLA they sent the new V5 to my sons address where the car was kept and thought any reminders would be sent there. (The car has been on SORN from 01/05/2007) Knowing they would send me a V11 form before the SORN is up for renewal i waited for it, but nothing came. Without the V11 form i managed to go online and registered there. During that time I've moved houses and sold the car and thought nothing of it.

 

Until now on 08/05/2009 i receive this fine for £80 without any notice or warnings, but what's strange they sent it to my address, the vehicle was never registered here. Why did they not send it to my sons address where the vehicle was registered?

 

Can they just send you a fine out of the blue?

 

Why did they not send this to me earlier?

 

What do i do now?

From what i can remember i bought the car for my son and registered it on my name and my address and insured him as a second driver.

If your son was the main driver, this is called fronting and the Insurance Co. would take a dim view, to the point of voiding the insurance in the event of a claim while he was driving.

After a while my son no longer needed the car and kept it in his garage, so i put the car on SORN.

Fair enough

Then i registered it to his address but kept it on my name.

On change of registration, you usually need to re-SORN. I am not sure if this si the case for a simple change of address.

I notified the DVLA they sent the new V5 to my sons address where the car was kept and thought any reminders would be sent there. (The car has been on SORN from 01/05/2007) Knowing they would send me a V11 form before the SORN is up for renewal i waited for it, but nothing came.
There is no obligation whatsoever for DVLA to send reminder notices (V11). It is the duty of the RK to ensure that the vehicle is either taxed or on SORN at all times.

Without the V11 form i managed to go online and registered there.

Registered for SORN I presume. Is there a gap between this online SORN registration and the expiry of the previous one?

During that time I've moved houses and sold the car and thought nothing of it.
Did you notify DVLA of the change of keeper when you sold it? Did they acknowledge this?

Until now on 08/05/2009 i receive this fine for £80 without any notice or warnings, but what's strange they sent it to my address, the vehicle was never registered here. Why did they not send it to my sons address where the vehicle was registered?
The fine letter would appear to have come from the DCA, not DVLA, so they may well have tracked you down,

Can they just send you a fine out of the blue?

Yes

Why did they not send this to me earlier?
Initially, any fine would come from DVLA. As this has come from a DCA, I assume that earlier attempts failed

What do i do now?
Can you provide us with a complete time line?

Did you tell DVLA about the sale?

Wass there a time period between expiry of tax/SORN and on-line SORN registration? if so, how long?

 

Stop phoning them, do everything in writing to ensure that you have an 'audit trail' of your actions and protestations.

"If your son was the main driver, this is called fronting and the Insurance Co. would take a dim view, to the point of voiding the insurance in the event of a claim while he was driving."

 

My mistake, I was insured as second driver.

 

"On change of registration, you usually need to re-SORN. I am not sure if this si the case for a simple change of address."

 

It was a change of address

 

"Registered for SORN I presume. Is there a gap between this online SORN registration and the expiry of the previous one?"

 

Thats where I'm not 100% sure on, I asked the DVLA if they could provide me the date of when the last SORN ran from as i did not have any confirmation letter. They said they do not hold that information? (or they don't want to tell me?)

 

"Did you notify DVLA of the change of keeper when you sold it? Did they acknowledge this?"

 

Yes i did and got an acknowledgment letter.

 

"Initially, any fine would come from DVLA. As this has come from a DCA, I assume that earlier attempts failed"

 

No earlier attempts have ever been made to my address or my sons.

Would of the early attempts been a warning instead of the £80 fine?

 

sorry about the quotes, don't know how to box them.

To put text in the blue quote box type

Write your text here

[ /quote ]

 

put the square brackets immediately around the quote and /quote without the spaces then it looks like this

If they don't hold that information how can they know when you're liable for a fine?

Thats what i was thinking, maybe they delete the information when its been sent out after a certain time? I'll try them again tomorrow.

 

How long do they give you to re-SORN after the last date? I know now they give you 14 days to re-TAX but was it the same for SORN last year ago?

The regulations allow a private individual up to 28 days to SORN a vehicle. The DVLA must recieve the SORN notice within 28 days. Online notification is best as it is its own receipt.

A trader is allowed 3 Months " period of grace" and that has since been waived.

It looks like it was re-sorn in June 08 when it was due in May 08.

 

What options am i left with?

 

Is there any point writing to them?

 

bear in mind the date of re-sorn was over a year ago

the DVLA did not notify me of this

no previous notices was sent

and they send it to the wrong address.
