    • I have an urgent need for help.   Longhurst group have started work on the adjoining property this morning without a party wall agreement in place. The contractors are basically saying 'f you' after being informed of this and because it's a weekend, I can't reach anyone.   Basically, I got a letter from Longhurst a week ago dated 23rd oct... they're supposed to give 1-2 months notice of intended works. This letter states they will not start work without written consent. and I've read up on the party wall act.   I immediately replied on the 25th Oct stating that I would not give consent until conditions were met, because they have broken every single agreement in the past, damaged property and refused/failed to repair it.   On the 27th Oct, they installed scaffolding, on the 28th they delivered skips and roofing materials... and today the 31st they started work.   I have literally been told by those contractors to 'f off' and that they're going to be removing part of my roof to do that one. They were made fully aware that there was no party wall agreement in place before they started work this morning.   I don't know what to do...

    • 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!

Hello

 

This is my 1st post to the forum and need some advice.

 

Cabot Financial have taken over 2 of my credit card accounts from Co-Op.

 

Both accounts were defaulted but I have been in a payment agreement with the Co-Op for over 2 years.

 

I have requested full details of credit agreements

and a copy of the 'Deed of Assignment'

but Cabot is refusing to provide this saying and I quote...

" These documents are confidential between the original lender and us and as such, is not available for disclosure"

 

Could someone please advise on my next steps for me to obtain the deeds of assignment.

 

Many thanks

Why do you want the deed of assignment? They are not obliged to provide it to you, unless directed by a court.

You will only get a notice of assignment. Even in court, only a judge would get to see the deed.

Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I was originallyl told the the debt had been transferred to Fredrickson and suddenly it now belongs to Cabot?

 

I negotiated a settlement with Fredrickson but during the negotiations it suddenly went to Cabot for what I now understand was a lot less than I was offering Fredricksons and now Cabot are chasing for the whole 'original debt' amount.

 

Also believe I would be entitled to see any documents that has my details on it even if some of the information is redacted ( blanked out on the assignment forms)??

 

Any other ideas?

You have every right for CCA reguest which they should provide you. With help of CAG members this [ATTACH=CONFIG]46030[/ATTACH] is what I wrote Crapboot two weeks ago and they replied me saying they don't have the agreement however they have requested it from OC which can take 40 days. I have recently wrote to them stressing that CCA must be supplied with in 12 + 2 days. I would advise you to fire this letter instead.

You would do better with a letter to the original creditor asking what is going on. Failing that, an SAR to everyone in the chain – but that would cost £30.

 

What’s the history of the account? Were there any disputes, etc?

 

Unless you have a good reason to suppose something illegal has taken place, your first point of call should be a request for clarification of how the account got where it is, and why.

 

However, Freds tend to chase debts for third parties rather than buy them, so they were probably collecting for the Co-op, who then decided to sell to Cabot. Do you have any details of an assignment to Freds?

Thanks for the replies - from reading the DPA it would seem that I am entitled to see the Deed of Assignment as the information contained in it, although commercially sensitive, is directly about me so they cannot withhold it?

 

Thoughts please on this?

It’s unlikely the DoA will refer to you specifically. It will refer to a batch of charged-off accounts, assigned on an ongoing basis, probably.

 

But why do you want or need it? What is the issue?

I have had a long running battle with Cabot asking for the coca as this was a very old cities card that had gone to opus then Cabot. Cutting a long story short they were never able to provide it and even tho the debt is still there they have written to confirm they are no longer chasing...check out my thread think it will be useful x

The DOA is a commercial instrument that attchully created the money so they don't want poeple to know about that they don't realy leand you anything.

 

No it isn’t! It’s required by The Law of Property Act 1925 to transfer a ‘chose’. It’s used to trade an amount that ALREADY exists. It’s not like creating a loan out of thin air.

No, that’s what I meant. The deed is an instrument that allows the parties to transfer or assign debts between them. These debts ALREADY exist, ie. the loans or borrowing had ALREADY been created. This ‘money’ is treated as an asset (or ‘chose’) and traded, usually at a significant discount, but with a full face (recoverable) value.

 

The deed creates nothing except the intention to trade these assets. If the deed is well written, it can refer to individual trades (or future unspecified trades) subject to the terms of the deed. (Some debt dealers completely mess up their deeds and agreements, though, but most judges can’t be bothered to look at the issues.)

 

I think you’re referring to the fact that when a bank initially agrees a loan, that amount is effectively created out of thin air. That is definitely true!

..... It’s never going to be relevant!

 

....

 

 

it might be in the end? depending on the circumstances. for eg in a recent thread re litigation http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?348133-Moved-and-received-CCJ-Help-please***Claim-Struck-Out***/page19 etc, as reneg mentioned, J ordered its disclosure, it never materialised despite more time given so claim was auto struck out. but, the whole circs would need to be taken into account including value of claim, costs, etc, and may not be something to rely on solely.

Yes that is what I was trying to say much better then me, it's about time it all came out and exposed banks and building societies that when they tell you they have lent you money buy your home or a Lone to buy a car they haven't let you owt.

it's common knowledge though filrobbo. The problem lies with governments. They are in bed with the bankers and are taking big handouts from them to let the bankers do pretty much what they like. The only time the overnment even considers doing anything is when there is huge publicity.

 

Take the current financial crisis. The bankers caused it 100% but who has to pick up the pieces?

Hi Ford. I agree...

 

...yes, if there’s litigation, but as you say, unless you have one of the 1% of judges who actually bothers to look at all the paperwork (usually on fast track), it will tend to be disregarded. I think Cabot have rather tidied up their paperwork and agreements recently.

 

Long way to go till that happens – in the meantime, it simply looks to me as as Freds were collecting for Co-op, but then Co-op decided to sell it to Cabot.

 

What halfapint needs to do is to stick to the existing payment arrangement while checking Cabot’s entitlement to collect. We need the full history...

hi. yes, maybe not much point in asking for it now then? :) although in that case mentioned in that thread it was said that re a sale a debtor is entitled to sight of the deed to ensure good discharge?

Way have they sold this debt on is there something wrong with the debt is it loaded with unlawful charges.

 

Depending on the level of payment, they probably thought they’d just get shot of it and nab the tax relief. Co-op aren’t in the best place at the moment...

 

Hopefully we’ll find out more soon from halfapint.
