    • With regard to your question on post 207 if you bring in the points that I made on the validity of the contract they are supposed to have with Peel holdings then mention that there are already doubts about the validity of the contracts that are being used by the PPCs and the OPS is a classic example. Once you are on there you should then try and get your other point in after that.   if it is in connection with the extra charge of £60 remind the Judge that the charge has been defined by many Court across England that the charge is an abuse of process which was covered in PE v Beavis at point 198    " The charge has to be and is set at a level which enables managers to recover the costs of operating the scheme"  IE the £100 charge covers all their expenses so nothing should be added.   as their WS claims an extra £60 that could be judged as perjurious since it is an additional sum that should be known by VCS and the author of the WS as a double recovery. Especially as they have already lost in Court for the same reason.   Another cause to prove that they do not comply with their Code of Conduct. file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/CamScanner%2008-05-2020%2016.34.59.pdf  Byelaws are statutory not arbitrary as their WS said on no .42 .   Best of Luck.   The above URL does not work but this one does http://forums.National Consumer Service.com/index.php?showtopic=133001    [20.1 is where  VCS  lost then 20.2 where they appealed and lost again .

    • 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!

Hi folks i'm looking for a bit of help here.

 

Bank pursued me for a cc debt in 2009 and raised an ordinary cause action in the local court, however they could not provide me with a copy of the cca and withdrew their action on the back of this - the case was not heard in the courts, just withdrawn by their solicitors.

 

I've heard nothing since however, i've now got a letter from Cabot asking for me to get in touch as they now own the debt and clearly want me to pay it.

Can someone help me with a letter or guide me in what i should be doing? If there is no agreement how can the bank sell the debt and how can cabot expect to collect on it - more importantly i'm up to my eyes in it just now and the last thing i need is another DCA hassling me for money, when i'm just about managing to keep my head above water how do i put a stop to this now, can anyone help me!

:-(

Thanks Rebel11

i've not received a letter of assignment from the bank and i've not made a CCA request to Cabot as i did all this with the bank and their solicitors at the time i was served with a papers for court. They did not reply to my requests for a CCA but they had the court case 'sisted' while they looked for it. The case was then withdrawn by the bank, i assumed it was because they could not locate a copy of a CCA.

Do you think it is worthwhile writing to Cabot for one as i thought the bank could.not enforce things without one and why do you think the bank have sold a debt they know they have no CCA for?

Unfortunately your link takes me to a suggested letter called letter to be used when a DCA refuses to comply with a CCA request i'm not sure if this would be the correct letter to send.

okay, i'll ask why i've not been sent a notice and i'll send a CCA request to cabot

 

i've been looking at the library for a suitable letter and i've come across one called

 

" A-letter-when-the-account-has-been-passed-to-another-debt-collection-agency"

 

do you think this would be a better one to send - would it resolve the matter quicker - or is it better to request the CCA from Cabot and details of why i was not sent a notice of assignment? You guys are the experts and i'll trust your judgement on this it's just that i'm just so stressed with things at the moment that i want this sorted in the quickest way

Hiya,

 

Although they may not have an agreement as proved by the earlier action they can still 'request' payment. Do you know when yu actually last made a payment tpwards this debt?

 

When you were dealing with the earlier court action they would have been options to apply for so they couldn't come back to you but obviously they just withdrew so allowing them still to request payment.

Hi Ida i was wondering if you had had any further thoughts on a possible letter i could send? I know you said you were busy at the moment and i appreciate your help, but i'm just a bit concerned about what action Cabot might consider taking if i appear to be ignoring their letter.

Dear Cabot,

 

Thank you for your letter dated xx/xx/xx.

 

I would advise you to refer this account back to your client. Your client iniated court proceedings in 20xx and subsequently withdrew their application due to non disclosure of documents that they required to bring any proceedings regarding the above alleged debt.

 

Please note that until such time they can disclose such documents we will not be making any offer of payment and will not be harassed into making any. Please be advised that any further demands of payments from yourselves or any other company trying to collect on the alleged debt will be forwarded with a complaint to the relevant authorities.

 

Please reply within 7 days confirming that you have now closed this account and referred it back to your client.

 

 

send recorded delivery

Thanks Ida sorry for the delay in replying but I don't have a PC at home and can only get on one at the library or when i'm at friends or visiting family, i'll get this done though and i'll send this off to them today/tomorrow.

 

Just one further question, I'm not sure if it makes any difference at this stage, but i've just re read the letter from cabot and it does say that they are aware that XXXX had previously taken legal action against me.......and i should contact their solicitors to discuss the options for repaying...... does this make any difference to what i need to say in the letter to them? i'm sorry i did'nt mention this earlier but i've only just re read the letter again.

clearly they don't have the CCA which makes them unable to get an enforcement order or very difficult at the least. They can however register a default against you. Have they already done this? Sorry if you have mentioned this already. The view I have on these debts is something others on these forums do not agree with - that is fine. But please listen to both views. I have fought and won a few of these, but believe me as you may know , the prospect of going to court to defend these is pretty intimidating.

 

How bad is your debt. Is your credit rating knackered? Can you afford any sort of lump sum towards this? You are in a good position to negotiate a settlement for this, or you can just ignore all of the threatograms they send, but I would be proactive and get this outnof the way any way you can.

if Ida is about i'd appreciate her views on my post #20. I've prepared the letter as suggested but i'm not sure if i should send it as it is given that Cabot's letter indicates that they are aware that XXXX had previously taken legal action against me. I just want to make sure that i'm sending the letter to them in the hope that they will go away!!

In all honesty debt never just goes away. Unless they write and tell you that. You are in a good position, so yes wait til Ida responds, Ida has been a great help to me so hopefully you will get somewhere with her advice. I have been slowly tackling my debts one at a time and it is tough. Right now I need final closure, hence why I am prepared to go to court over mine. I have nothing else to lose and want to move on.

 

If you feel you are going round in circles with this then repost and then and only then, you can try the route I have with unenforceability. It's ****, but will get you closure and stop the letter tennis that I went through
