    • thank you. Under the Consumer Rights Act you are entitled to have a vehicle of satisfactory quality.   If a defect appears within the first 6 months of ownership which means that the car is not satisfactory then you are required to give the dealer a single opportunity to repair or else refund you.   So the question is what condition would a car of that make model, age and mileage and price be in.   I think the best way forward is to raise the issue with the dealer but also start to make your own researches as to whether the rust damage to this vehicle is beyond what would be expected of a vehicle of that character and in those circumstances.   When you have discovered. then come back here.   Additionally, you haven't told us the cost of the vehicle. that would be helpful to know because it will affect the quality of vehicle that you would reasonably expect.   Also I asked you the name of the dealer and you haven't told us. Are you trying to protect them?                
    • Thank you Slick132. I don't have in writing how long the actual works themselves would take but believe they said it was two weeks.   I spoke with CAB earlier today and they've said I can cancel this order as the company are already in breach of the terms, plus catching them out re the manufacturer's and the buildings regs she said to put in writing that I was cancelling and mention breach of consumer protection, unfair trading regulations and the fact that they are wilfully misleading me.   She said the credit card company will handle the refund as I hoped. I don't want them working for me in any way shape or form now.
    • Hi thanks for replying, The car was registered in 2009 ½, as I said a 59 plate. Mileage, when I got it it had circa 45K miles, it now has circa 72K miles. I have had it for 3 years almost to the month. I got it from a dealership in Loughborough, on the selling point that it was low mileage and was dealership serviced. Shortly after my return home to Southampton, I took it into my local dealership for a once over, part of which entailed one of their mechanics sitting with me while I drove around locally. I wanted them to take over looking after the car for me. Hope this helps?
    • just remember a DCA is NOT A BAILIFF and have ZERO   legal powers on any debt no matter what it's type.
    • Hi.   You've posted in the self-employment forum although as I understand it you can only be made redundant as an employee.   I've moved your thread to the Employment forum, people should be along to advise later.   HB

    • 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!

I am worried sick. i took out a loan from toothfairy in april. i wanted £100 as i have had them before and payed back in time. on the day, it said i had to choose a higher loan as £100 wasnt available. i got a £200 one and then something happened so i didnt repay. i have since had numerous calls/texts/emails every day form them, and NDR wanting money. the debt has risen to £715 and will rise again if i dont pay within 3 days. today i have had a text from marshall hoares bailiffs sayig they will be at my adress in 3 days and will take things to 9times the value of the loan. i have emailed them, told them on the phone and through the contact us on all 3 websites asking how to repay an affordable amount each month/fortnightly. i am on benefits and get £148 every 2 weeks. i am worried sick for me and my young daughter. i have been sitting with blinds shut and not making noise/not answering door if i am not expecting anyone. i really dunno what to do. they wont give me an answer to repay what i can afford. oh, forgot, i had a text yesterday saying i had agreed to pay today in full but i never did. because i got the text yesterday, i went online banking and switched the money i do have in (my rent) to my savings account so they couldnt take it. anyone have any advie?

Collie, firstly 'KEEP' that text saying they will collect your goods in 3 days.

 

Second, a real bailiff will only attend your property with a Court Order, for that to happen, they will have to take you to Court, Win in Court and for you not to pay what a Judge orders. As you are on benefits, thats about £3 a month.

 

They are trying to scare you and it looks like it's working. DO NOT speak to these on the phone and keep everything in writing. The most you owe is £200 PLUS 1 months interest whatever they tell you.

 

Don't be scared of these bullies, they can do nothing.

Theres a lot of things they can try. But even if they took it to court, all you would have to do is show the judge full written evidence that youve tried to get a plan going but theyve refused completely.

the only reason why they keep calling is because you ignore the calls. Trust me answer every one of them and explain to them your situation and repeat it again and again, I'll put money on it that the calls will stop. Ignoring them gives them a reason to call again, a letter isn't going to help.

Make sure you record the calls. You are dealing with a company who has a very long history of bullying and intimidation.

 

Do NOT call them unless you can record the call as they will bully you into an agreement you wont be able to keep to or get you to agree to giving them more money in charges.

 

Phoning them up is one of the worst things you can possibly do with this company and honestly i have no idea.why jamie is advising you to do so, given this companies well publicised history of intimidation.

Collie, they have passed it to the table next door, I'll pop in later with some letters to send.

 

And I know its hard, but they really cannot do a thing. Have a cup of tea or something stronger and relax knowing you have now found CAG!

No. Court is a very very long way off, if it even happens. If it ever does, simply post here and we can help you every step of the way.

 

You also dont need to worry. Calm down, take a deep breath and go grab a cup of tea. The PDL wants you to worry and stress so you break down and do whatever they say. Thats how they operate.

That means there is something very wrong with the debt. Either bad charges or an unenforceable debt. They know you are panicking and worrying and are using you as a cash cow. They offer "discounts" to make themselves look as if they are doing you a favour.
