    • 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!

Lack of an agreement is in itself as far as I know a complete defence. When Link took me to court the first question that the DJ asked was "have you had a copy of the agreement" when I told him no he immediately told the link representitive to go away. Strangeley enogh they did afterwards supply an agreement which, if I had known then as much as I have learned now I would have torn to shreds. However they still did not get things their own way and it took them 4 appearances to get a partial victory. Stay strong. If you do need to get in your defence make sure that point 1 is lack of agreement. Others will be along to help soon.

Thanks for the input. Earlier in this thread pt2537 stated that maybe an application would be better than a defence. I take that to mean maybe a strike out application rather than an embarrassed defence on the basis that they have not supplied the documents on which they rely & have mentioned in the poc's.

Most of this goes way over my head & now I'm panicking a little.

an application would be for an order compelling disclosure.


The party mentioning a document in its statement of case ought to allow inspection of that document, given that they have signed a statement of truth too


So, if they cannot provide the documents they have pleaded in their statement of case, then you will need to see this document before you can formulate a defence as it seems the agreement is central to this matter

Thanks. I think I understand that.

Now, as I've said before, the extension I allowed Link will expire on the 25th. Do I have time to get together an application for disclosure or will the court just allow the judgement to go ahead? Will this application delay any judgement? I really do not have much knowledge of the court system I'm afraid.

Yes I think the lack of an agreement is my main ammo in this case.

Thanks again for the help.

Ok I've had a good look around here & it seems a court order for disclosure is probably the way to go but I can't find any info on how to go about it.

Is the N244 form used for this purpose?

Is there a guide of sorts to give me some idea on how to apply for an order?

Is there a fee involved?


Cheers again.

I haven't been back here as there'd been nothing to report but things are now moving.

The last thing I did was to send an N244 form to the court asking that the court request the required documents from Link & if these are not produced within 14 days the claim should be struck out.

I have recently got a reply from the court stating that they have set a date in May for a hearing when my strike-out request will be considered. I'm confused by this as I ticked the "without hearing" box on the N244 form.

Today I have received from Link a "Consent Order". The attached letter says that if I sign & return this form they will agree for the judgement to be set-aside.

If I do not sign the form they claim they will attend the hearing & "vigorously oppose" my application.


Has anyone any thoughts on this latest development?


Thanks once more.

I am still waiting to hear from the court about the exact same thing, so will keep an eye on the advice you get, as it may apply to me later.


Good Luck with this one :)

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye :D

It depends on the contents of the order, but, if you refuse and the consent order is what your application seeks then your refusal could go against you, could be seen as unreasonable and therefore costs ordered against you.


Just cos you tick no hearing, doesnt mean that it wont get ordered to be heard, and infact the oppo would appeal if this was not dealt with by way of hearing

Are they asking you to admit the debt to avoid a court hearing? If so it is similar to other posters regarding Link. If they have not produced the requested/required documents then they will not be able to oppose much.

The form which Link have forwarded to me contains very little.

It just instructs the judge to set-aside the judgement & not to award costs as both parties will cover their own.

That's all there is. I can post it up tomorrow for viewing if needed.

Just one more thing, as Lieutenant Columbo once said!


If you choose to accept Link's offer, you should not sign their document and produce one of your own. The wording is the same, however, where the section for signatures is, you should insert the following:-


Signed by Claimant: .......................................

(Link Financial Limited)


Name: ........................................


Position within Company...................................


Then continue with your signature as stated. Do not sign this form yet. By seeking their signature first, you retain a degree of control. Send the letter via Royal Mail Special Delivery as it needs to be received asap:-D



You should then prepare a letter similar to the following:-


Dear Sirs,




In the (name of court) County Court

Claim Reference No:


I refer to your letter of (date) offering to set the above judgment aside.


I am amenable to discussion of this matter, subject to the following:-


Please find attached three copies of an amended document. All copies should be signed by an authorised officer of your company. You should then return the three copies to the Defendant and they will be distributed as follows:-


1. Forwarded to (name of court) County Court

2. Retained by Claimant

3. Retained by Defendant


With reference to attendance at a hearing, please be advised that I shall attend if required and that a vigorous defence will be made. An order for costs incurred as laid down as appropriate for Litigant in Person shall also be sought.


The signed documents should be delivered within seven days of receipt of this letter, which has been sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery.


Yours faithfully






Upon receipt of the signed copies, you should send a copy to the Court and to Link via recorded delivery. Retain your copy safely.


I hope this is of help. :-D

You're welcome. Let me know how you get on.


I know this has been mentioned on CAG many times, but do not speak to DCAs, or their representatives by telephone under any circumstances. If the Court deadline is looming, state that you will accept an e-mail from the DCA.

It looks as if the consent order did the trick as I've just received a letter from the court saying the case has been dismissed with no costs awarded.

I'm delighted with this & many thanks to all who took time out to help me. It's much appreciated.
