    • 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!

History - I have recently started helping a family member who had a loan from Lloyds in 2001. This orignal loan had front loaded PPI (Lloyds call it LPI). The loan has subsequently been "cleared" and moved to a new loan on 6 seperate occassions roughly every 8 months or so. Everytime more PPI has been front loaded onto the new loan with the old balance and any new advance. The current loan has a balance of £14K but all the PPI from the old loans is more than this amount. All very shocking.

 

Now this family member is over 65 and had a heart attack earlier this year and is now not working, unlikely to ever work again and struggling to make the £500 per month repayments. Oh and previously has been self- employed!

 

I am still looking and learning about PPI and will be assisting in a claim in due course, once I am up to speed.

 

In the meantime, the family member has rung (this week) the PPI people and advised about the heart attack and Lloyds are sending out paperwork to process a claim against the PPI cover for the repayments.

 

Question - would making a succesful claim against the policy be wise? Would it hinder a later claim? The repayment of the PPI premiums would easily wipe out the loan balance in due course. But claiming now on the policy gets over the short term problem of the repayments.

Everytime more PPI has been front loaded onto the new loan with the old balance and any new advance. The current loan has a balance of £14K but all the PPI from the old loans is more than this amount. All very shocking. (If you do not have all of the documentation from these loans you should ask for it by sending a Subject Access Request - Links and advice below)

 

Now this family member is over 65 (was this family member over 65 at the time the last loan started? if so this is a reason to claim mis-selling) and had a heart attack earlier this year and is now not working, (again dates important here if the last loan was after the heart attack then that would put them into the pre existing medical conditions category - yet another reason to claim mis-selling) unlikely to ever work again and struggling to make the £500 per month repayments. Oh and previously has been self- employed! (again timings are important if the claimant was self employed when the loans were approved and the terms and conditions list self employment as an exclusion to make a claim then again you could use this to argue the case for mis-selling)

 

I am still looking and learning about PPI and will be assisting in a claim in due course, once I am up to speed. (please read the stickies to learn about PPI any questions just post in your thread)

 

In the meantime, the family member has rung (this week) the PPI people and advised about the heart attack and Lloyds are sending out paperwork to process a claim against the PPI cover for the repayments.

 

Question - would making a succesful claim against the policy be wise? Would it hinder a later claim? (After a heart attack it is IMO unlikely you would be able to make a claim, so I would proceed to claim all of the PPI premiums that have been paid on each loan and also claim the 8% statutory interest from the date each individual premium was paid up until a settlement is agreed) The repayment of the PPI premiums would easily wipe out the loan balance in due course. But claiming now on the policy gets over the short term problem of the repayments. If you now make a claim on the policy it would most probably invalidate your chances of recovering the PPI you want to reclaim. This would mean in the short term the payments may be met (I would bet not for long though) but the loan would still be there requiring repayment. If as you state the PPI premiums if repayed would cover the amount outstanding on the loan then that again IMO would be the way to go.

 

There is a lot to deal with here.

 

Please see my comments on your post above

 

Please read up on all of the stickies at the top of the forum.

 

PPI - Some Notes for Claimants..

 

BANKS are giving incorrect advice on PPI

 

Full SAR for ppi

 

Data Protection Act 1998 - Subject Access Request

You can be specific with what data you request although the Subject Access Request is really asking for everything. The Statutory fee is £10.00 Postal Order is fine but keep the details of the number for future reference. The post office will be able to confirm when it was encashed (just call 01246 542091 they will even send written confirmation if you request it) Send all correspondence by at least recorded to be signed for so you can track delivery through Royal Mail

 

You should request the following documents:

 

A true copy of your Consumer Credit Agreement with the Terms and Conditions that were applicable at the time you took the loan/card/mortgage.

 

A ‘demands and needs’ questionnaire.

 

Copies of all statements applicable to the loan/card/mortgage.

 

Copies of all correspondence that apply to you as a data subject ie letters, emails, faxes etc.

 

Copies of all recorded telephone calls or transcripts of the recordings.

 

Copies of any notes made by bank/loan company staff in their dealings with you as a data subject.

 

Do not be fobbed off by them citing issues such as relevant filing systems.

 

If they have any records/data on you as a data subject and it is held under your name, address, post code, account number/s or any other system where the data is identifiable to you then it is a relevant filing system. Even if it is a specific serial number on microfiche records and the serial number is applicable to you.

 

 

Mis-sold PPI? Want your money back? use these links to help

 

The last link is full of even more links there is a lot of reading to do but this could help you with your claim for mis-sold PPI.

 

If a claim is made on the policy and is successful it would no doubt help out short term but with an outstanding balance of £14k you should seriously consider which way you wish to proceed with this.

PPI Successes

Please do not PM me for advice as it may be sometime before I can respond.

 

Keep at them. Do not give way and do not accept all they tell you, they will delay and stall for as long as they can to prevent repaying you your mis-sold PPI.

Thank you the post alanalana, must have taken a while and is appreciated.

 

We applied for a SAR earlier in the year so the information I have been posting has arisen from starting to wade through the three feet high pile of paper.

 

Some of the loans were definitely taken out while self employed so I have asked the individual to note down employment history against each loan.

 

The heart attack was not a previous medical condition and completely out of the blue.

 

My research started with reading the stickies in the PPI forum but as with all research lead me to many threads and posts which I have printed off and read for an hour each day.

 

As for the claim against the PPI, it is called LPI by Lloyds, the help line suggested it should be against the critical illness section and have sent out paperwork. This will take time to complete as it is lengthy and needs GP input. Reading the little booklet that comes with it, it appears it will run as long as he remains unable to work and in theory would clear the loan! But I need to sit and read it properly. I will not let them make a claim in a hurry whle we consider all options.

 

As for the old loans and the total PPI when you add them all up is over £20K! The current loan has a balance of £14K. So if they had had no PPI - well do the maths it is simple.

My message is to keep at them stay on the game. I have so far recovered £18.355.70 with a claim with the FOS two claims awaiting a response due tomorrow and successes on earlier bank claims with three bank charges claims still to pursue.

 

It is worth the effort.

 

Good luck.
