    • said it twice now - a letter of claim..click and read   fleecers leave things until near SB date so as to wrack up maximum interest they can get on the debt   as long as all your debt owner on any debt that you might have used/paid within say the last 7 yrs have in writing been told of your correct and current address, and all of your old addresses are showing on your credit file as linked addresses then you should be ok.   dx  
    • Hi thanks for your help, I’ve sent the letter. I am worried though that I won’t know what to ignore and what to not? Will the notice of claim be marked as such ans can I post back on here if I get one?  Also- how do I know I haven’t had a CCJ already ? I just can’t quite understand why they would wait this long ? thanks 
    • It's not necessary to see an invoice. You will have to figure out how much you paid for the installation part of the work which was carried out – because that is what you want to claim back. If it's not clear what proportion of the bill was in respect of the installation, then you will probably need to get some outside opinions – independent opinions – as to the cost of an installation. It would be better to understate the value then overstate it – because if the cost is not clear then that could become the subject of a dispute if you take this to court. You will be better off identifying an amount of money which you could reasonably attribute to the cost of installing the new turbo – and which will be supported by independent evidence – and which will be accepted without much question from the judge.
    • It's clear, but it's. Not correct. The 2000 was for other work also  I do understand what you're saying but it may be easier for me to show you a copy of the invoice then we can be completely correct.   I will send a copy this evening after work if you don't mind.
    • I'm not too sure what to suggest other than to keep on trying during the day and try again tomorrow. I suppose that it is just possible that they have now filed an acknowledgement and that in some way it has overlapped with the end of the 14 day period – which apparently ended on Sunday. If you are not able to enter judgement by tomorrow, then I think you should phone the court. Keep on trying throughout the day.

    • 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!

Apologies , this will become lengthier than I'd like, but just to give some background... I have pretty severe osteoarthritis in both knees and am awaiting an op (first of two). As a result, I'm currently only able to work a very hours a week and have been receiving employment support allowance since the end of last year. I also attend fairly regular appts with RBLI. MY GP writes my monthly medical certs.

 

Going back to January, I had an appointment with Medical Services for my medical as required by DWP/Jobcentreplus. I had to cancel this, due to lack of transport (I can't walk far, live rurally and rely on friends for a lift). Medical Services were meant to be sending me another appt - they didn't. I chased them, could never get through on phone. Rang Jobcentreplus twice to say I needed the appt for medical/can't get hold of Medical Services. Was told by Job Centre that my file had been returned to them "under query" and until they sent it back to Medical Services, no appt coiuld be made.

 

Months go by (I assumed a backlog hence why I'd not heard). I then asked the girl I see at RBLI to chase it for me which she did - it's on her records that she rang Job Centre about it. They were meant to sort it - I still heard nothing.

 

This morning I've received a letter from Job Centre Plus saying my benefit has been stopped due to "non attendance for medical in January 2010". I've just rung them and basically they're no help at all, despite me explaining the situation over and over. They've said they'll get someone to look at it and get back to me.

 

I'm at my wits end. I simply cannot cope without the small, extra amount of employment support allowance. Is there anything further I can do at the moment? Or anyone I can speak to who might be able to help sort this swiftly for me without it going to some sort(?) of lengthy and wholly unnecessary arbitration?

 

Any help most gratefully appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I'm sure we can give you some pointers.

 

Forgive my ignorance, I don't know what RBLI is. Would they help you with this sort of problem? I know Welfare Rights help people to appeal, and CAB sometimes. Do you have those available to you locally?

 

Some of our people on the forum, who work at the DWP or advise on benefits will be at their day jobs at the moment, so are unlikely to answer you until this evening. In the meantime, the rest of us will do our best.
