    • 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!

Posting this with thanks to madpriest

 

I don't know whether anyone else has posted this - I couldn't see it - This information supercedes all information regarding county courtlink3.gif Actions etc.

 

(1) You can no longer take your completed N1 to the local county court.

 

You either have to do it online as MCOL or you have to send your N1 in to a central processing office. Note well that MCOL only allows around 1500 characters so if you have a long Particulars of Claim (POClink3.gif) then you will need to send it in. (I personally think this is a better idea as a completed blue N1 naming the bank as a 'defendent; is a thing of great beauty !!)

 

(2) Your N1 should not state a county court in the top right hand corner but it should contain "CC MCC NORTHAMPTON". All Money claims are now nominally issues from Northampton

 

(3) On the new N1 there are the words "You must indicate preferred court for hearings here" ---- At this point insert the name of your local county court. What happens is that the case gets formally 'transferred' from Northampton to your local county court.

 

(4) You can get the most up to date N1 here

http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.u...s/n001-eng.pdf

 

(6) Payment - You either have to send a cheque for the fees, or a postal order. If you want to pay by card, you need to send a covering letter, in LARGE TYPE, asking them to contact you and give them a phone number. (This if course is the governments very well thought out plan !)

 

(7) Allocation. I haven't got here yet. My understanding is that you get a communication from the County Court Money Claims Centre telling you about allocation and where you can get the form. They no longer send the allocation questionnaire to you.

 

(8) Addresses as follows:

 

(8.1) ENGLAND

County Court Money Claims Centre

POBOX 527

Salford M5 0BY

 

(8.2) WALES

POBox 552

SALFORD M5 0EG

 

(8.3) SCOTLAND

(Totally foreign country - I have no idea)

 

PHONE for both 0300 123 1372

 

(9) Now there is an e-filing email ccmcce-filing@hmcts.gsi.gov.uk

but this is not to be used for filing money claims. I've got no idea what its for but it could be for filing your allocation questionnaires.

 

(10) Upon allocation, the case is then 'transferred' to your local court.

 

Good Luck everybody - I hope this has been helpful

This is how it has worked for a good few months now (although previously it was rolled out and not officially started), apart from 'starting' the claim (which many did on MCOL anyway) it works as normal, as soon as its allocated you can send/hand in docs to your local (assuming thats where its allocated to) court.

My brother in law is a claimant in a case where he sent the claim to salford. After defence was received he was sent an aq from salford and he returned it to them. The case has now been allocated to his local court. He isn't represented but still received an aq so not sure if point 7 is correct.

And the very best of luck to those who are eligible to claim fee remission on any court fees because the documentation has to be originals (including bank statements) and I could write a book on the errors they (CCMCC & local courts) have done with my various claims which includes losing financial information!

 

I don't wish to be the bearer of bad news but the plans by the government to centralise everything has experienced more than teething problems.

 

If anyone would like assistance on this area I am happy to provide information via this thread.
