    • 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!

Today is the last day to pay. They gonna send me notice to owner. They ignored me asking to send TrO.

 

I did check the PDF you've sent me. It does show that there are two machines on that street which belong to the same zone P2s,but it doesn't get me anywhere.

I have already told you where you need to get the TMO from, parking services are not going to go to the effort of sending a copy out to help with your appeal. I also told you who you should write to but I assume you wrote back to the same woman you got the letter from? All you seem to have done is repeat your first letter with some not that relevant facts from the Traffic signs manual. I don't wish to sound rude but you ask for help yet have ignored almost every point I PM'd you I don't really understand what you expect in the way of help?

don't be so sensitive!! sorry. First time is never easy. I'll go and read everything again.

 

thanks again

 

Sorry I didn't mean to have a go its just frustrating when you try to help people and they don't seem to listen.

 

Ring up the highways department tomorrow and tell them to email you a copy of the TMO for the zone you parked in. If they cannot email it tell them you will collect it from the Merton link which is the information point at the Civic centre opp morden tube.

 

Don't be fobbed off by the appeals person, they are just doing what they are told and have little discretion, write to the head of Parking Services. Also email william.brierly@merton.gov.uk who is the person responsible on the elected council for parking amongst other things. The point you need to make clear is you parked somewhere you were permitted to park and you paid for the time you parked. You read the sign which said pay and display and that is what you did and from the nearest machine. The council has not lost out financially and the PCN is being enforced purely to raise money. You did not park in a permit bay or other area you were not permitted to park and the Council should use common sense and its discretion on this occasion to cancel.

Hi green and not mean at all :)

 

I'VE GOT TRO.

 

it's a huge file, so where do I start?

 

What format is it in, did you get a physical copy or by email? There should be schedules attatched that show the bays and state tariff max stay etc? You need to check the bay you parked in says that its a flat fee for starters.
