    • 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!

For some reason, I can't post a new thread.I hope someone sees this. As I am having a panic attack.I wrote to the tribunal and asked for an extension in time limits, due to ill health. Still no reply.I thought that the only deadline I had to meet by the 14th was proof of disability and ill health (which I just managed to do, as have had the week from hell, more on that in a moment), but have just seen a tiny note at the bottom of the page that says I should have provided an agreed list of issues with Respondents' representatives by the 14th.Will they throw my case out? How much trouble am I in?This week, I received a call from my Council, warning me of two malicious emails and to contact the police and a solicitor, which I did do immediately. They used a fake name, but the emails are from them. I won't go into how I know this.I spent Monday with a psychiatrist who discovered I was on a third of the dosage of meds I should have been on and also should have been on additional meds.Tuesday with the police.Wednesday, tried to see GP as had an appointment, an hour later, still not seen. I went to reception for help as was having a panic attack, they didn't help me and I broke down and they just let me leave, sobbing and stumbling down the street. I made it home after a kind pharmacist let me calm down in his pharmacy so I could continue on my way.Then I was with the police until after 10pm that night. I can't tell you what they said, but it is bad.Thursday police again.Friday tried to get to GP again, couldn't, broke down, managed to get outside to once again try and get my letter of medical proof, they had to come outside to me as I couldn't get in to the surgery. I was breaking down on the pavement and the receptionist said have you got the £15, or you can't have the letter. I gave them my last £15 and cried all the way home.Then sent proof to Respondents' representative and ET and then, noticed this note about additional information.What do I do?So sorry, had such a crap week. Which is what they intended. And the emails included names of friends of mine, false allegations and also the name of someone I'm too scared to even say who they are on here. I feel so bad.Oh and police again first thing in the morning today. I feel so sick.

It is quite common for deadlines to be missed at the ET level. Go to the tribunal in person Monday and hand in your medical report together with a copy of your letter of 3rd Sept, with a cover note stating you have had no response and that you will supply them with the information by XXXdate (give yourself reasonable time, say 7-14 days). Send them an email over the weekend to apologise.

 

Perhaps you or your representative can summon up a quick draft list of issues on the back of an envelope and then type them up to be attached to your letter, above, making sure you emphasise it is only a draft and not final at this stage. If you are unrepresented, the ET will not mind if you have not managed one; as long as you have a list from the other side, which should give you some idea of what is needed. Basically, what you want to focus on at the hearing to prove your claim in the form of questions.

Thank you papasmurf1cx and Pusillanimous.I, as yet, have no representation, as because of continued harassment and intimidation, by my ex-employers, my health has deteriorated and my time has been taken up by appointments and the police checking on me every day and so I haven't finished writing the statements for a solicitor who may take me on.

 

And yes, I'm in the police high risk category.They are millionaires with a huge law firm on my back.Am I allowed to add the additional harassment and intimidation to my claim?

 

Also, the tribunal messed up the first serving of papers (they admitted this) and so I have been going through this and the threats for a year now.

 

Am I allowed to add additional amounts to monies claimed, as not only did their assault end that job, but I had to leave my next job, due to ill health and now they have effectively closed down my business that I had, with their false allegations.

 

The allegations have been found to be unfounded and malicious, but the stress means I can't continue and as they have been tracking my movements through my web page, I have had to remove my business listings and information from the internet.I do have some proof of this, but to get the required 100% proof, I need a higher level order than the one I already have.

 

I know this sounds like a movie script, but this and so much more has happened.Thank you so much again though guys, because I have been freaking out since I saw this additional deadline note.

 

I wish I'd found this site sooner, because you have no idea how much it helps when you feel someone has actually heard what you're saying, and then taken their valuable time to respond, especially when, most of the time you feel like it's you against the world.

 

Thank you.... calming down a little now.

The Employment Tribunal letter 'Notice of Orders' I received, states, "A party who is legally represented is required by Rule 11(4) to provide to all other parties in writing the information set out in that rule."The Respondents are legally represented and I am not and they haven't told me what this Rule 11(4) is.Is that wrong of them?I don't even know if it's important, or not, or when they're supposed to tell me what it is.Sorry for all the questions, but I'm trying to calm myself down by learning fast.

I just double checked letters received from the Respondents' Representatives and they haven't told me what this rule is.What they have done, is right at the bottom of one letter, they have written:"We confirm that we have sent a copy of this letter and the outline list of issues to the Claimant and complied with rule 11(4) of the Employment Tribunals (Constitution and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2004."But they haven't told me what that is.

You can google the ET rules - they are quite short. Rule 11(4) simply means the other side have to be sent a copy and given seven days to issue any objections to the application. If you object to their docuement, send in your response with reason for objection by return to ET and the other party.

Oh thank you Pusillanimous. They didn't tell me that bit. What a surprise. I am trying to Google the rules, there appear to be so many that it's a little overwhelming. It's frustrating, because if my head was working properly, I wouldn't have a problem. I'm not sure why you chose that name, by the way, as I know the definition, but it is an unusual and interesting choice. Although, for me, you have been anything but! Thank you, again.

According to Amazon, 2009 is the most recent date. That is already pretty old. It may well be out of date itself.

Hi Calamatyjane.

 

You have 24 hours in which to edit a post (re your missing paragraphs) - if you click on the "edit post" button under the post you can sort that out.

 

I am not sure why they disappear for some posters and not others. Will try and find out for you. You could try putting in 2 or 3 carriage returns at the point you want a paragraph to see if that helps.

 

It would be useful to know because it is very frustrating trying to read a huge block of text that has no spacing.

This issue actually cropped up this week at work.

 

It's pretty much industry standard between representatives to merely copy the other side in to any application under Rule 11(4). In actual fact, upon literal reading of the rule, that isn't enough!

 

They should copy it to you with an accompanying letter which outlines that it is an application which you have the right to object to within 7 days. If they haven't and you wish to object, you should tell the tribunal and point out that contrary to their assertion that they met their Rule 11(4) obligations, in actual fact this is misleading the ET as you weren't informed of your right to object!

Hi citizenB,

 

Thank you for your reply, but I did try both those things and it didn't work.

 

However, I'm on my phone now and the paragraphs show up, like I typed them.

 

Will check later to see if it's some kind of anomaly between phone viewing and laptop viewing.

 

Again, thank you for replying.

Thank you BankFodder. I found a third edition, says printed 2010 and just wondered how much difference for all the extra money.

 

I think I'll go for the latest, most updated version I can find.

 

Thank you for replying :)

honeybee13,

 

You know what... I have no idea!

 

I just know I need to get some legal education and quickly!

 

Saw this book recommended; have heard of Naomi Cunningham; so thought good idea to start there.

 

Plus, I have been up all night, trying to learn things to help me and gaining knowledge is helping me get through this.

 

So, thank you honeybee13 and everyone else, who takes the time to answer my posts.

 

Police just left and now I'm doing one of my calming down routines (including learning more) so that I can get on with proving I'm telling the truth, even though the things I have witnessed and experienced sound crazy!

 

I'm not crazy.... my Psych said so! :)

 

Just received four legal and police letters, managed to open and read them within the hour. A definite improvement!

 

 

The Tribunal have scheduled a one hour pre-hearing, in one month.

 

Not sure what I'm supposed to take, but, apparently, one of the things, may be a police officer for my protection. Yay!
