    • Point out that the small claims process is very simple and straightforward. If there is a hearing then it is very likely to be a telephone hearing and as long as one knows the steps then there is no reason to be unconfident about it.
    • We should be able to obtain opinion regarding expected life from the original plumber as he is no longer active in the trade, so no issue with future relations with the merchant..   I will talk to my neighbor and explain what he  needs to do, clearly it will be up to him to proceed with the claim via the suggested route   Thank you for your help.

    • I must withdraw from the course as Student Finance England will not fund my second degree which is an exception degree. For I been told of an outstanding debt that I had no idea existed, which was sold to a third party from my original degree. SFE told me that there no outstanding debt when doing my application but now informed me that they sold half my loan to a private company that put a block on my account.  I tried explaining that I never earn over the threshold so no payment was due, which sfe agreed but they say they can do nothing about the block on my account by Erudio.  I rang Erudio to explain but they said will only remove if I fully pay even though I am under no legal obligation as I never earn the threshold, plus I cannot afford 8070 pounds.  I spent hours telephoning looking for a solution with no luck, I contacted Student loans England, Student Finance England, the University credit and finance but no luck in finding a solution. But I really see a solution being found as I don't want to liable for course fees as I can't afford them without SFE loan.  What makes it worse is the university stringed me along even though I phoned them on 28/10/2020 and raised this as a concern that finance not been received and she assured me the cut off point was 18/11/2020, I received my decision on 21/11/2020 i immediately withdrew from the course.  But when I rang the university to explain that these are circumstances out of my control,  and its not like I don't want to continue the degree there no finance she said well we charge you 2250 pounds because you two days over the cut off point. I told look at system notes I already telephone with concern and now they sending me invoices, totally stressed made appointment with Student union adviser I find it amazing they try to take advantage of me in this way.  If anyone has any advice please I would very much appreciate it.       Just add I rang erudio whom informed me the debt was Stature barred in 2010 and they bought loan in 2015, and they only remove if I pay it in full which I cannot afford, this reason I have drop out.  On my SLC loan every if up to date and there no outstanding balance there deferment till 2005 and then gap in 2018 it says   Annual Unmatched customers/oversees/Not eligible to repay statement.  I did move address erudion had my old address but slc had my new address.  Anyway the lady said that since I did not fill in my deferment regardless if I can prove I never earn over the threshold that the debt had been statue bared,  If anyone can tell how I handle the university whom going after for a whole term payment just cos I was two days over the tutor said she allow my withdrawal from the 18th but I don't know how the university will act.

    • 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!

An update on my claim i received a reply from natwest today and i have to fill in a form of all my income and expenditure.

 

Just a little confused about the whole hardship process, how does it actually work?

 

I am on benefits, i have two kids, and my expenditure is more than my income, so would i qualify?

Hi Junior232,

 

My advice having experience of sending a hardship claim to natwest is to ensure that you expenditure EXCEEDS your income.

 

If you show Natwest that you have income left over...in their eyes you are not in hardship and they will reject your claim.

 

They usually send you an income and expenditure sheet. Is your account with credit management services??? is it still an open account???

Hi thanks for replying back.

 

My account is currently open with them and i still bank with them, i am in the process of setting up another account with another bank.

 

My expenditure greatly exceeds my income, i have several debts, two of which i am making monthly payments for which includes electricity bill from my previous property and i am making council tax payments from when i used to live with my mum.

 

I am on benefits and i have two kids so my most my income goes on living expenses. On average i get charged about £50 by natwest every 2-3 months.

 

Im just a little concerned about the letter natwest sent with the income and expenditure form, it states they want to help me sort out my finances but no mention of refunding charges.

 

I also have a £600 pound overdraft with natwest, then main reason why i got the overdraft was because natwest applied over £400 worth of charges on my account, this was due to several failed cheques can i reclaim these?

Hi there,

 

I believe i have read somewhere that the banks in recognising the hardship wont automatically be refunding the charges now like they were just after the court ruling,

 

as the investigation and ruling went in favour of the banks and in helping hardship they will probably just assist you in arranging a payment plan that suits your finances.. this said there may be a refund to your account..you wont know until you try...

 

i put a hardship claim in which looked as if i had money left over..so it was refused.

 

I believe they have a 21 day turnaround...send special delivery..

 

a number and address for you to get a customer financial statement from..

Hi,

 

An update to my claim, natwest sent me an income and expenditure form and basically they said i am not in financial hardship "Following our assessment of your financial position, we have determined that you do not meet the criteria to be entered into our financial hardship policy because you have understated your income and a duplication of expenses in your expenditure therefore you have sufficient income to meet your ongoing commitments. They have sent a 4 page response basically giving answers to every thing in the template letter i used on this forum quoting the supreme test case.

 

I am on benefits my income is pretty straightforward, i have two kids, i have debt over 4000 pound which includes electric, water and council tax, and i have other debts which i am not making monthly payments on but i soon will have to when they take it to court and take money out of my benefits, i have to feed my kids, i have to cloth my kids, i have to pay my household bills i dont understand why they rejected it, my expenditure is more than my income im really struggling and natwest keep taking my benefits money on a few occassions i have been left with 50 pounds to last me 6 days because natwest took over 40 pounds of charges.

 

What else can i do abou this i dont agree with what natwest are doing i need some guidance and advice from people who have been rejected for hardship but won over a period of time, i didnt even claim compound interest it was the basic 8%.
