    • Thanks both - Just did not want them to have the satisfaction of tarnishing the record even if it was for 12 months I'll wait it out - only 4 months or so to go   Thanks again
    • Thanks uncleB.    I have quite a few valid challenges which would prevent bankruptcy / return to original ownership.   Yes I am trying to sort legal help.  It's hard with limited financial resources.  Hence why I'm trying to create own defence.   I'm not sure I understand how they are legally allowed to completely gut a building whilst - I thought - under a legal obligation to sell?    They have refused to sell whilst also accruing interest and applying costs over a very long time. It's as if they deliberately racked up interest and costs to create a shortfall and grab the property via bankruptcy. The property was in good condition. Although squatters did get in. Is it a viable legal opportunity for them - without bankruptcy - to retain the property and rent it whilst simultaneously still charging the mortgagor interest?

    • @dx100ukis right and even so - A Search doesnt reflect anything whether you were approved or decline. If youve had 1 search in the last 6 months, Then you dont need to worry

    • 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!

Hi, we have recently moved into a new property. We have a driveway one the side of the house which leads out on to the road. We have a dropped curb. So do most of our neighbors. along side my house at the end of the street is the only free space for parking as most of the street now has a drive on the front of the houses.

 

At the weekends there can be as many as 6 vehicles either side of the street. At least 4 of these vehicles are work vans this restrict access in and out of my drive there is never enough space to park even on the street. Last weekend my partner left the car half over my drive and half over my neighbors driveway as we could not park the car on the driveway because of the way all the other vehicles had crammed into the available parking spaces. As it was 1 am in the morning he didnt really think it would be a problem but at 9am sunday morning I had a phone call from my previous address telling me that the police had visited the property looking for the owner of the vehicle and had issued a FPN offence 151 . I could understand if my neighbor didn't know who the car belonged to and if we had maybe persistently parked over his driveway but this is the first time we had done it and feel that it is unfair to be penalized for this.

 

The notice does not have my name or my full address on it ?

 

Could someone please help:-)

It's a shame your neighbour didn't come and have a word rather than calling the police, but now they have there's not a lot you can do about it. Blocking, or partially blocking, someone else's drive is fairly textbook unnecessary obstruction. The fact that you couldn't get into your own driveway wouldn't make it OK - there's no right to park outside your own home, and you had the option of parking somewhere else, and/or asking the police to ticket the vehicles which were obstructing your access to your own driveway. So ticketing you is perhaps harsh, but legitimate.

 

What did the police do with the fixed penalty? Stuck it to your car? Sent it to your new address? Left it at your old address?

If the FPN is attached to the car it doesn't need an address, or even a name. If it's not paid after a set period the police will send a notice to owner to the registered keeper, who can in turn either pay it or request that the matter be dealt with in court instead. As a court appearance can result in a fine of a few hundred pounds, and costs on top, requesting a court hearing is not to be recommended unless you have a solid defence, or unless you're willing to risk a lot of money for a point of principle. Not having anywhere else to park isn't much of a defence, so you're probably best to pay it, move on and not send the neighbour a Christmas card.
