    • stuff and all they can do .......they are TOTALLY powerless   and you are well used to dealing with REAL bailiffs anyway looking at your history   
    • ok Finally got home!   I'll try and keep it short however we finally got to an agreeable place   Walked over to sales as there was no more servicing could do especially as the aftersales manager quite simply said they will not be footing the bill. Spoke to the salesman, updated him and he was lost for words and had to ask me where things were left -  Requested senior management to come down - both head of business and general sales manager are off for half term.  That left the buying manager - ironically the same who purchased the car in for the dealership.  He was called downstairs but in the time that he did, he must have called the aftersales manager.   Once down, everything suddenly changed -  I was told they are now 'reaching a compromise' (I assume between the two departments) and it will be put right.  The part is being ordered, is on backorder for 2-3 weeks and once in, they will fit it. This of course means I am potentially out of my 30 day exchange/1000 mile exchange however appreciate I can drag it out if it came to rejecting it.    I got the aftersales manager to put in writing the part IS being ordered and if the part does not for whatever reason fix it, I CAN exercise the exchange regardless of how many days/miles I am out. --This was CCd to the sales manager, the service advisor and the buying manager stating he is accepting/making the decision in the absence of the two other managers.   So all in one- another wasted 5 hours there + the drive up/down but we are hopefully now at a point the final issue will be either permanently fixed or it will be the deciding factor of returning the car.  The part-ex has also gone so it's not like we could even just change back for now.   The part is scheduled to arrive pretty much the week of our due date which really messes this up in terms of transport/planning however we'll cross that bridge then - for now, I need to destress the other half who really did not need this especially with what is essentially for her the baby car    Could I ask - IF it does not fix it and we decide against the exchange - can we still reject?  If we can, what happens to the part-ex thats now gone/auctioned off?   I too believe 99% it will fix it but just curious.     Also just for anyone else taking an interest, the MMI unit that is faulty is not just the navigation but everything Audi - phone, radio, cd, sd card, service indicators, settings for the various components - its all part of the MMI brain.  And so the reason this is important that it is resolved is usually with this unit, if one part fails, it's likely the entire unit will fail.      
    • They don't have to care.  This is Britain - the biggest reaction will be some mild tutting.  The main goal now must be to keep the fear factor high whilst ensuring the pockets of the few continue to be lined.   
    • Cat 6 Marker then. Thats one of the worse you can get.  As @Andyorchsaid... You might need to go to the FOS etc to get this done. We had someone else who went all the way with Tesco and lost. Cat 6 Markers are very difficult to get removed.

    • 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 all

 

How many times will the bailiff call before sending the debt back to the council tax. I asked the council tax to do an attachment of earnings on me and I filled in all the relevant forms the next ting is the bailiffs are dropping letters through my letterbox, I haven't spoke to them as I know they will want a rediculous amount of money off me that I know I will agree to pay then i will get behind on payments, all I want is the council to take the bill back and then I can pay it by reasonable installements (I only got behind with my bills through going into hospital for an operation) I am a loan parent working full time on a low income. Please any advice will be welcome

Hi,

When did they get the liability order and at what stage did you ask the Council to make an A2E ?

What paperwork has been left by Jacobs ?

You can make a payment to the Council online,but Jacobs will still have title on their fees.

Are the Council aware of your health issues ?

The council can recall the debt from the bailiffs anytime they wish, this seems like you may need to send a Fromal Complaint to the head of Revenues, the CEO, and the council leader, copied to councillor and MP, citing that you are disappointed that your attempts to arrange payments have been ignored and you are being hounded by bailiffs, and that you may still be vulnerable, under guidelines as you are still recovering from an operation. and you are on a low income.

We could do with some help from you.

If the Bailiff thinks he is getting to you he will call as often as he likes. If on the other hand he can see you have nothing then he may only call a few times - there is no hard & fast rule for the number of visits and it may drag on for months. You have to be aware of what he can & can't do - have a good read of a different threads for a feel of what happens. In the meantime as has been suggested start by putting pen to paper although if trying for the vulnerable angle you will need to provide some sort of proof.

Given that you are a single parent I would strongly suggest that you DO NOT allow the bailiff to come into your home. There is no legal requirement in any event.

 

If the bailiff cannot gain access, he will almost certainly attempt to clamp a car of yours from outside of your home. If you do not have a car and refuse entry then the bailiff will have no alternative other then to RETURN the debt back to the court or accept a payment arrangement.

 

In the above circumstances, the bailiff can only charge a visit fee of £24.50 for "attending to levy" (where no levy was made) and a further 2nd visit will attract a fee of £18.00

 

If he is unable to levy upon goods, then he can return as often as he wishes. HOWEVER, he cannot charge any further fees UNLESS he can gains entry to levy upon goods.

 

Almost certainly, if he cannot gain entry after two visit, he will not waste travel costs for further visit if he cannot charge any further fees and the account would normally be returned.
