    • They've actually been behaving themselves for me, recently.  I'm re-signed with them on a variable tariff, meaning not tied in and can leave any time if they get up to their old tricks.  However something I noticed was that when accepting the tariff they actually showed in advance how they expected that annual total to be split into the 12 months.

    • Hi All   really need some help and advice.   i have a PayPal credit facility with a balance of £400. I owe £270 due this month. I am going to phone them and pay this and clear it as it’s a credit contract and I know they can enforce it.   however alongside that I have a negative PayPal balance of £5000 this is not through the PayPal credit. It shouldn’t have happened and I don’t plan to pay that, at least not now.   if I phone PayPal and pay the credit facility with my debit card will that be ok? Or will they use those details to try and get the money back for the 5k negative balance?   thanks for any help. Whilst I appreciate PayPal credit and the negative balance are separate with them being on 1 page on 1 account I wasn’t sure.

    • 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!

First of all I'd like to say sorry if I've posted this in the wrong place. :|

I'm a little simple and really need some help.

 

I have today received a CCJ (one sheet letter from Northhampt county court)

Apparently I was supposed to have recieved a form to send back to them

Which I don't at all remember getting apparantly is a blue? Form?

I don't remember receiving any blue mail...

 

So the court has ordered that I pay my creditor £650 "forthwith"

Which from what I can gather means..like now.

Or well that I have 30 days to pay the lump sum.

I really want to pay this debt but I don't have that sort of cash.

 

Who would I contact about making an arrangement to pay in installments?

There are 3 people stated on my CCJ

The County Court (obviously)

Homebase card services ( original creditors)

Aplins solicitors (these are in the "make payments to" box on CCJ)

 

I just really need some advice you guys, if they try and take all my pennies or send bailiffs round,

I'll freak out and not in a fun, disco dancin' way but a severe mental health issues way. :(

Thank you in advance to anyone who helps

You are now in the right place, I have relocated you :) You do not have to do anything it is purely administrative.

 

So, did you not receive any paperwork from the court originally and this Judgment has been given by default (that you haven't offered a defence)

 

I would think that you could apply to have it set aside if you were unawares this was happening, you are entitled to offer up a defence.

 

Did your creditors not contact you previously to advise they wanted money from you ? Send you a default notice - a statutory requirement, or a Letter before action ?

 

If you wish to accept this CCJ without fighting forward, but don't have the funds to make the payment in full then you can make an application to vary the order (ask for an instalment plan)

 

I think it is form N245 that you need to complete and it needs to go to the court named on the Judgment / General Order.

There is some information in the link above, but I will flag your thread for others to comment as well.

Do you know if there were any default/penalty charges added to this account ? If so, you will be able to reclaim those and we would almost certainly have advised you of this had you been aware of the claim in the making and sought advice earlier.

Thank you citizenb for your ultra fast response!

I do not wish to fight the CCJ as the debt is deffinately mine.

They had sent me the correct warning letters and defaulted my account.

I had just spent number of months burying my head in the sand,

As some folks do (but really shouldn't)

It wouldn't appear to me that any unfair charges have been added on

Although I can't be sure it just appears to be a few court costs.

 

So my new plan of action shall be printing a copy of a N245 form

and mailing this to Northhampt.. County court stating my proposed

payment plan.

Do you know, if these are generally accepted? Especially if I have missed the

first set of important blue forms they sent me?

I shall keep this thread updated to what happens.

Thanks MissI

I have alerted others on the site team who will have a better understanding of this than me. But yes, the N245 will need to be completed along with a personal budget sheet which shows your income and expenditure. You can complete the one I have attached below or you could telephone National Debtline on their free number and ask if they will help you complete a Common Financial Statement.

 

I guess you could mention on the N245 that whilst you were unaware of this claim, you accept the outcome, but as they can see from your attached Personal Budget statement, you simply cannot afford to pay the full amount in one go.

National Debtline are open Monday - Friday 9am to 9pm : Saturday 9.30am to 1pm and their number is a free service.
