    • 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!

Letter no.4 received. I really need to get that scanner working. As previously mentioned, a full set of Excel correspondence would be good.

 

An odd feeling when I opened it, I laughed. Really because since being a member on here and regularly keeping track of these jokers it was totally expected. The name, the wording, the idle threats, everything.

 

All power to CAG.

Well we all think that. Apart from (I think) lamma. Could be letshelp. Not sure. Either way one of them from what I understand has enough of these letters to wallpaper their living room. Stand firm buffy. It's just idle threats, the law is not on their side.

 

:edit:

 

Could be crem. I get mixed up :)

That takes effort. Minimal effort I'll grant you. But effort nonetheless. They're not worth it.

Have been reading this forum and taken advise from it so far. I have had several threatening letters from Excel, yesterday received letter from their solicitors advising I have seven days to respond or they are issuing proceedings. Any one gotten any further than this so I know what to expect? Should I just continue to ignore?

Also another point to add the letters are going to my parents address as that is where the car was registered although I am no longer living there, am slightly concerned that if I ignore letters they will start to phone parents house as can see this has happened to others in other threads.

response appreciated thanks

Hi Am new to forum, so not sure if doing this right. I have read lots of info on ignore Excel Parking Ticket, which has been good advice. But yesterday i recieved a letter from Graham White Solicitors. In big bold letters is stated Notice Of Intended Legal Action. They are saying that it is a legal requirement to send a intended ligation before legal proceeding are issued in the county court. Also a threat of baliffs attending my property and seizing my goods, if Judgement order is not adhered to.

I have not worried before, but this has made me afraid now.

Can someone give me some advice, not sure if i should ignore this, also they rang my home, but i just put down the phone.

Would be grateful for some advice pls :D

"Graham White" (aka Michael David Sobell) is well known on this forum for his hollow threats and can safely be ignored. Don't be intimidated by the fact that he is a solicitor. That profession is not squeaky clean, and has some bad eggs amongst its ranks.

 

For a bailiff to attend your property then the case must go to court (very unlikely), you lose (very, very unlikely) and you do not pay whatever the judge orders. This possibility is so remote then you have nothing to worry about.

Thank you for your quick reply. Your advice has put my mind at ease. I will continue to ignore, but is it ok to contact you again, if i should get another letter or feel worried.

Thank you:)

 

There are plenty of people on here who will give you good advice. You are taking this bunch of clowns too seriously and falling into their threat trap. You have nothing to worry about. Just relax.
