    • 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!

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

 

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

 

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

 

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

thanks dx100uk very much appreciated.

 

From what I have read thus far it appears I need to apply to the court for this to be set aside? This what I am unsure of, do I need to go to the court or is there a form to fill out? Pre 09 this was being chased by a few credit agencies all at the same time and the last one was moorcrofts.

Sorry, can you clarify. Have they filed a petition for BR or have they served you with a Statutory demand ?

 

If the Stat Demand, then you have 18 days from the date of service (the date it came into your hands) to have it set aside.

 

You can download the application from..

 

https://www.gov.uk/statutory-demands/challenge-a-statutory-demand

 

You will need form 6.4 and 6.5

 

If you tell us a little more about the debt then we can perhaps help further.

Can you confirm that this is a bank account and not a credit account eg, card or loan.

 

You say you have received no Notice of Assignment, it doesn't necessarily have to come from LTSB, it could have come from the new owner, Lowells.

 

Have Lowells contacted you prior to this stat demand (if that is what it is) ?

Hi all

 

Last I heard about this was in 2009 when Moorcroft were chsing for it.

 

 

I asked them for clarification and they never responded.

 

 

It is a statutory demand and I think its for an overdraft but not sure.

All it says on it is lloydstsb and bank account.

 

In all honesty when I was served the notice it was the first I had heard anything since 09 about it.

I have moved house but had a redirection in place for two years a

nd recieved no correspondance in respect of this debt at all.

 

 

THe guy who severed me was very intimatdating and he did it in front of friends who had just arrived.

He was flashing the notice around so that others could see what he was giving me.

 

There is no help info on the stat demand at all.

So I feel like a car with no engine. If that makes sense.

 

Thanks once again x

All done and the district is in court tomorrow so am waiting with everything crosssed.

 

I have just got back from the court to find a letter from bwlegal stating I haven't responded and the letter is quite threatening, to be fair I still have 9 days left to respond.

 

Oh before I forget I also found correspondance that I sent to Sechari, Clark & Mitchell which are Lloyds TSB Solicitors and its dated 24 July 2009 and its states clearly that I was disputing the debt as they failed to comply to my request for further information and a complete breakdown of the debt. I also made an error in a prior post its 2010 since I last heard about this.
