    • Then say that then...   and raise an irresponsible lending claim against them if you think its true, but i seriously doubt any lender even one as bad as kenny's would not have carried out extensive checks.   Now if they did then your alternative is to get an sar running and get reclaiming all their unlawful fees.   Plenty of threads here on kenny's and reclaiming.   Dx    
    • What is the name of the company you are dealing with? Why haven't you told us? If the other thread you have been looking at is the thread relating to Ideal Windows then you will see that we have been advising that the customers should give notice. It sounds very similar to your problem. You should give notice. You must inform them that time is of the essence and that given all of the delays you can only now give them seven days to agree to complete the installation job within 14 days (including the seven days). I'm afraid that courts won't normally accept a peremptory cancellation – even if the delays have been excessive. I'm afraid that by communicating with them and broadly by accepting the delays to a certain extent, you have been complicit in agreeing the delay. So now you have to take control and bring it to an end to but you have to do this with notice. I suggested that the work should be completed within 14 days – but how long should the installation take? The reason for giving them notice is that even though a date may have been fixed for completion, generally speaking reasonable delays are considered to be acceptable – and the courts are well aware that the installer may have incurred costs and should be given a reasonable time to complete the contract. Once you give notice that the contract will be treated as terminated because the delays are becoming not acceptable – then you generally speaking satisfy the requirements of the court that you have treated the installer fairly.

    • 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!

Currently I have been employed as a temp worker and have been working for the same company for just over 1.5 years. This situation started about a month ago having an informal chat with the supervisor about needing to be taken on full time and I need to do folk truck training as I like to help out more and need the extra money for commuting into work etc. Currently I am doing 80 miles a day and I really need something extra to help me along. He said ok and that should come with my full time contract I should get a pay rise and I asked him at the same time will agency pay me more in the mean time. He had is doubts as I am originally employed as normal warehouse op which gets a lower rate.

 

My folk lift training has been and gone and I passed it yay! Anyways still not taken on full time and in the mean time I've asked the agency am I due to have a pay rise now to match everyone else who has been employed as a folk lift driver. They have no problems with that but they need authorisation with the company first as it was in house training. I have no disagreements with that until now as the ball is in the court of the company and now the supervisor informs me is it fair to askfor a pay rise as they have provided the training. I can't see that is fair inmy view because the major reason why I would do this course is to have extra money. It’s the company’s prerogative to train me. They could of waiting until Iwas full time. Also another reason he stated is that they have to pay more to the agency if I do get a rise but don't they pay double at least anyway for not taking me on full time.

 

I knew this was going to happen and it just seems to me they are just getting my services on the cheap. Also as a folk lift driver there is an added responsibility of not damaging goods. I can be handling goods worth tens of thousands of pounds and shouldn’t my pay reflect this or given equal treatment with my fellow co-workers who work for the same agency?

Are you still employed as a warehouse operative? or are you a fork lift driver? are you a warehouse operative who can do the occasional fork lift job? or are you doing fork lift all the time?

The fork lift training that you have recieved and passed didnt cost you anything and I assume you have a qualification now, so you could go elsewhere as a fork lift driver, i dont think the company is under any obligation to take you on as a direct employee as it is up to them if they wish to keep using agency staff.

Unless you are employed as a fork lift driver I cant see that you would be able to get any extra pay and the employer isnt going to tell the agency that your status has changed as it would cost them more, at the moment you are still a warehouse op who some forkilift work.

Until you are employed directly by the company I cant see this changing. you could of course ask the agency to send you to another job as a fork lift driver and leave your current employer.

I could be wrong but no doubt someone else will have a more technical answer

I've read your thoughts and it does make some sense. I don't have the qualification now in my hand and I know the company had in the past not release it on request directly with them BUT I had a chat with the trainer while I was being trained and according to him they can't do that. Anyways I can ring the training company up and request the qualification and for a admin free of £20-£30 I can obtain it.

 

I am still a warehouse op and they wish to have me more or less use a fork lift all the time picking computer equipment within the racking I would not consider it occasional by any means. Looks like I have to wait out until a contract arrives if it ever does.

The only other suggestion I can come up with is that you tell them you are going to leave and then they will have to employ a FLT operative if they have enough work to justify one full time, or suggest that as you are doing a lot of fork lift work but not doing it exclusivley prehaps they could pay you a bit more but not the full FLT rate for now.

sorry I really cant be of much help it is just thoughts, i am sure that there must be legal ways you could force the issue but i get the feeling that you would rather keep on good (ish) terms with your employer at the moment, at least until there is somthing better in the offering.

Its also got to be worth getting a copy of your certificate from the trainer even if it costs £20-30, get it sooner rather than later as things like this are so usful if you are looking for other employment.
