    • Hi, we have managed to agree terms with this creditor, thankfully and finally.   Now we face another problem...my husband was declared bankrupt in 2018 by another creditor. Long story short, it's now in the hands of a trustee.  They have apparently completed a driveby valuation which is higher than the first creditor mentioned previously so the trustee believes there is more equity for them to take.  Our property is leasehold with a 54 year lease so tricky to value.  We made an offer based on the first creditors valuation which was rejected by the trustee because, guess what, their valuation stands. So, I am now fighting again to save our home. Is there anything we can do to challenge the valuation and suggest the equity isn't as high as they think it is? Will a trustee be brutal enough to effectively push us into a homeless situation during a global pandemic because raising the funds they are seeking, is somewhat out of reach? Any help is gratefully received. Thank you.
    • Hi Andyrorch and BankFodder   I have just read up the posts, I am confused as to what to do, please can I be advised which route to go finally and how this is done, based on the advices to date.   I will be able to look into this tomorrow as I am off work most of the day tomorrow after 3pm   Thank you

    • 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!

I received court papers and to cut a very long story short - send a sar and cpr request - no response.

 

Submitted an embarrassed defence and allocation questionnaire. Claimant failed to submit their allocation questionnaire on time so dj wrote and gave them additional time, of which they submitted it on the last day.

 

In addition they sent with the copy of the allocation questionnaire several letters (never seen before) suggesting they had tried to chase this debt 2 years ago - then nothing for 2 years. No letter was sent warning about legal action and a letter stating several figures that did not make sense.

 

I also asked for a signed agreement relating to the account - they sent me 2 pages of 2010 terms and conditions with one page clearly missed out! This did not apply to 2006-2008. In their letter they stated that the signed agreement was irrelevant and that they would agree to a months stay to negotiate and not go for a summary judgement yet but they feel the defence has no chance of success.

 

Therefore my questions are:

- I have not been given the opportunity to file a defence because of their failure - what should I do?

-Do they have to provide a signed agreement with relevant terms and conditions?

- Why did they not go straight for a summary judgement if they felt no defence was offered?

- Do I write a letter to the dj to explain / communicate with the claimant directly/ use an N244?

 

I just need some ideas into what they are thinking - they seem to be playing games and am not sure how to deal with this please.

In your embarrassed defence did you include a line requesting the court's permission to submit a new defence if the requested paperwork appeared. If you did them I believe you have a limited time in which to submit a defence.

They go for SJ because they can and they can panic people into not defending it.

Hi can anyone help PLEASE - I did include this line and how long do I have to submit a defence? They are really using tactics for this claim rather than clear evidence.

 

They did not submit the aq until the court gave them an extended deadline and then included some documents with a copy of the AQ -(requested cpr and sar) but only sent it to me three months after my initial request.

 

Therefore my questions are:

- I have not been given the opportunity to file a defencelink3.gif because of their failure - what should I do?

-Do they have to provide a signed agreement with relevant terms and conditionslink3.gif?

- Why did they not go straight for a summary judgement if they felt no defence was offered?

- Do I write a letter to the dj to explain / communicate with the claimant directly/ use an N244link3.gif?

 

I panicked at first when I received the claim - then felt quite calm and determined to fight this. Now I am concerned tactics of law are being used rather than straight evidence and back to panick mode!!! Would a DJ accept a letter with the points the claimant has failed to address or does this have to be in the form of an amended defence???

suggestion:

Try issuing a 31.15 request to view, the documents mentioned in their poc, within 7 days.

When they fail use an n244 application to produce the documents or strike out. Reserve the right to change your defence once the documents have been produced

 

This will hopefully bring the original documents out of the woodwork, then you can defend properly or get the case dismissed

Thanks for that. I sent this request on the 23rd March this year - I got nothing back. As I said above the allocation questionnaire had this 'letter' attatched which formed the basis of the poc. The 'letter' does not make sence - was certainly out of the time limit - and lists a load of payments over a 3 year peiod. It states at the end your payments - how much we think you owe =!!! and that is the basis of the claim! If I wrote to the dj stating that they had still failed to provide documents would this be listened to or do you suggest using a n244?

Sorry I meant to add they eventually sent this letter on the 7th June with a copy of the allocation questionnaire which they lodged 2 weeks after mine because of a threat from the dj that if they did not submit it the case would be struck out! N244 the way forward?

I know this is a rather old thread now but as I am in a very similar situation I just wondered how this played out nj484?
