    • 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

 

Can this High Court Writ be actioned?

 

Basically received a writ today regarding a judgement hearing that i paid last month.

 

time line of events:

 

Jan 2011 Judegment made against me

Feb 2011 Appeal Hearing Application made and court agreed for appeal notice (any enforcement of judgement and writ placed on hold until hearing)

Feb 2011 High Court Writ made (notified office that this cant be enforced due to appeal, they agreed)

Jan 2012 i decided to make Payment on Judgement and request to adjourn/cancel appeal hearing made

Jan 2012 Appeal struck out as payment made, Judgement marked as paid

Feb 2012 Claimant requested New Writ issued based on original judgement

 

Speaking to the Sheriffs office they state that a writ has 12 months validity ,can a new writ be issued from a judgement already paid?

As the original writ had been placed on hold and then expired can they enforce this further with a new writ?

 

Any Help?

 

Many Thanks

Ang

Best to send them a copy of the certificate of satisfaction or it's Scottish equivalent. I note you say the judgment has been marked as paid.

Ive requested a certification of satisfaction, the amount i paid covers the full judgement, they have taken that amount off the new writ but are asking me to pay for the fees of the writ, bailiff charges etc, of the original writ that expired as well as new charges on the new writ issued Feb 2012, im stating that the judgement was paid before the appeal hearing and that the writ that was on hold during that time has now expired, and that the new writ is not valid as it was issued 1 month after the judgement was paid.

Am i correct in this? i understand that there was a window between Jan 2012 - feb 2012 where the original writ could of been actioned as it was still valid after i had made payment on the judgement but this expired Feb 2012 hence the issue of a new one.

You shouldn't have to pay for the Feb 2012 writ as the judgment was satisfied by then. As for the Feb 2011 writ it'll depend on the exact timeline as if the writ was applied for before the stay, even if enforcement wasn't attempted until after, you would be liable for the costs I imagine.

I assume that after the original Judgment was made a Writ of FiFa was obtained. Did you then apply for a Stay of Execution? If so what were the grounds it was granted on? You have then applied for an "appeal" but before it can be heard decided to pay the original Judgment. In my view therefore the Claimants costs of applying for the Writ & its renewal are justified. What charges have been applied so far?

Feb 2011writ came after the stay about 1 week later, they did not know at that point of the appeal hearing being granted and stay, this writ expired Feb 2012

writ charges are currently around £1500 on a £1200 judgement, the permission to appeal was granted with a stay - under what basis i am not sure - i am guessing because an appeal application was agreed and a date set for an appeal, following this a week later the writ arrived based on the judgement the month before.

I have a bit of difficulty in understanding how you can have a Stay for something that has not yet been raised. When you say "appeal" do you mean an application to set aside or something else. I'm not trying to pry but get right as to what has actually happened.

 

Working off the above I assume you had Judgment made against you - was this a Judgment by Default?

After Judgement was made (at a Hearing) i immediately applied for a permission to appeal hearing, this was granted by the court about 2 weeks later and an appeal hearing date set - the court advised that no further recovery on the judgement can take place, the claimant applied for the writ in-between judgement and permission to appeal notice being made

Understand now. What I see of it is that:

1 - Judgment was made against you

2 - as no payment forthcoming Claimant has transferred it to High Court for enforcement

3 - appeal granted by Court including Stay on enforcement

4 - you elect to pay Judgment only

5 - appeal struck out

6 - asked to pay Writ

 

The problem I believe lies that the Writ was granted before any appeal was granted and as you say enforcement was halted. However this does not kill the Writ off and it was rightly renewed after the initial 12 month period was up. However I would argue that the HCEO has not actually done any work and would argue that if you were due to pay any costs then it should only be for the initial Writ & its renewal - approx £110 in total. If you had gone ahead with your appeal and won this would have negated the Writ and there would be no further costs to bear.

 

How to overcome the HCEO

1 - who did you pay the Judgment costs to?

a - the Court?

b - the Claimant and if so how did you pay, if by cheque has this been cashed?

c - a 3rd party?

I won't go any further at present as I hope you are going to tell me the answer is 1b

Thaks PT!

yes thats it....

yes 1b is the answer....this was for the full judgement amount that included the costs which was applied at the end of the hearing when judgement was granted in the claimants favour....i rang the court to ask who i should pay and was advised to the claimant and sent a cheque recorded direct to their address this was then cashed 1 week later.

Could be magic. I'll leave you with a link to read as I have to be up early in the morning. Read:

What if I do a deal with the defendant outside the enforcement process, who pays your fees? at http://www.thesheriffsoffice.com/faq/

 

The Claimant should have known this as it is one of the things they are told prior to the Sherriffs Office accepting the work. Make sure you still have the Recorded Delivery slip, also print off receipt of delivery from Royal Mail Track & Trace & proof of the cheque being cashed - send a letter to the SO and suggest they look to their client for their fees as I think I can guarantee they will not have told the SO you have paid.

Well it turns out that the claimant passed on my cheque to the sheriffs office and they cashed the cheque - how they did that i am not sure as it was not made out to them, although they said they will not send any receipt of payment or any proof of payment or even send acknowledgement to the court to say the judgement was paid.
