    • Apologies if this rambles slightly I feel a little brain dead after yesterday    I just want to know if I'm being unreasonable in one of my points (holding them responsible for costs to possibly damaged engine if I can get an engineer report)    Basically broke down in a layby on the a43, steam from bonnet high engine temps   RAC arrives declares it a minor leak and tops up then says OK to continue (4 miles to services) then recheck and says fine to drive home   30 miles later large amount of steam from engine and lose power, get it to hard shoulder   Next rac chap arrives and says it blowing like that may have damaged engine as it now doesn't start, says it will need a crane truck as 4wd and auto says priority job as 3 children on hardshoulder in the rain (1 in wheelchair)    3 hours later, I've chased rac twice and been rung by highways agency twice (who have also complained to rac)    Tow truck arrives (flat bed) advise them we were told it needs crane and drive says its OK it will run, after cranking engine for over 5 mins drives it onto truck pouring fluid out the bottom   I can't help but feel that him cranking engine that much when pouring fluid is likely to have done alot of damage as well as being told to continue on a leaking engine    
    • Thank you. I’ll sit on my hands, for now!

    • It's not worth appealing because ECP won't listen, unfortunately, plus you can give the impression that if they lean on you, you'll pay them money when you don't need to. The only time we normally advise writing to them is if you get a Letter Before Claim/Action.   Best to say nothing for now and if you do get a LBC, we'll help you to draft something.

    • 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!

Obviously I want to defend the claim but im clueless on what to do now and need to get this form back within the time period?????

 

some background hope this helps with your information.

 

I had a credit card with capital one and defaulted on the card in 2004 and have had no correspondence from them since around then.

 

I also have been accepted for a credit card from capital one less than 6 months ago.

 

so 1st things 1st what am I completing on the court papers so I can get them back within time.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated

We need to know the date of issue of the claim - this is in the top right hand corner of the form.

 

We also need to know exactly what it says on the claim form - the reason they are issuing the claim. Although if you can edit and scan the document in as advised by dx above that would be great :)

 

You say you defaulted on this account in 2004 - have you made any payments or acknowledge liability since that time ?

I have checked with noodle and cannot find this amount on any account open or closed Lowell have 2 accounts in my name totalling £521 the capital one account does not show either at any of my previous addresses open or closed. so should I request more time from the court.

hi guys I made the online claim but not sure on the out come.

when I select view defence this is what's shown:

 

 

1 The Claimant's claim was issued on 03/09/2013.

 

2 The Claimant contends that the Claimant's claim so issued is a

claim in contract and is statute barred pursuant to the provisions

of section 5 of the Limitation Act 1980. If, which is denied, the

claimant contends that the Defendant is in breach of the alleged

contract, in excess of 6 years have elapsed since the date on

which any cause of action for breach accrued for the benefit of

the Claimant.

 

3 The Claimant's claim to be entitled to payment of £913.01 or

any other sum, or relief of any kind is denied.

 

 

I also have received a letter from the court explaining about a small claims court if I take no action the court will make judgment but im not sure if this is just a copy sent out to all parties. could anyone please advise as when I read the defence online I thought I had won and Lowell where denied but on receiving this letter im now not sure

Andy, ring the court up and ask them where you are up to, tell them, you don't understand the letter? Just write down what they tell you and get back here with the info. If the claim is from the Northampton Bulk Centre Court the phone number is.........03001231056, tell them your claim number and they will advise where you are up to.

Hi Andy, i think this is the form.............

I let someone else advise you what to put on it as i'm new to all this, but it looks straighforward. From what i gather it is to make sure the claim is suitable for the small claims track and offer mediation?
