    • Thank you for the reply - I'm half expecting them to either drop the whole thing or to spring the "We had to tell the court that you don't want to pay so we're going to restart proceedings" idea given the language in the consent order that I signed with them. Going to read up and prepare to defend in case they fancy playing that game. It'd be nice if they would actually play by the rules for once...
    • Hi, I'm not sure if I'm asking this in the correct forum.   Ill try to be brief   - last October I contacted a h2b company that said I was eligible for up to £200 off every window and door. I agreed to a company to come and quote.   The quote was given, the windows and doors installed. The initial installation was incomplete however the people installing said for them to be paid for their part I needed to sign both a form that said what was left and that they had done their part. This form was actually an agreement to release the funds from the finance company. I disputed this.   Fensa came to inspect my property finding multiple errors (improper sealing) in addition to those I found (chipped and damaged beading, poor finish and damage to an internal door and blind). The company returned to fix the issues Fensa identified.    I compiled a very hefty report and sent to the window company complaints team with pictures showing the faults. They did apologise and have attempted to remedy some of the issue.   I asked for a price breakdown in December to check exactly what each item cost. This was done as I had agreed to have sills in addition to the windows and i received capping boards instead (i didnt need capping boards).   The price breakdown shows no indication of any saving made as promised by the h2b company. When i highlighted this to the window company they said what they had provided was all they were giving me. I complained again and was given an explanation stating that they gave me a different saving that was larger than would have been offered by the h2b company in the first place. This was not indicated to me at point of sale.   Being that it has been a year I am wondering if I should contact the financial ombudsman about this. I feel as though I have been miss old this product and the company has been dishonest and unhelpful.   Any advice would be great.
    • Hi everyone,    They started sending threats:   Wednesday:    We have been instructed to proceed formally on this claim in 7 days in respect of the balance due to Photo Studio Group unless discharged or an arrangement made. This will result in a formal Letter Before Claim and Court Proceedings.    Thursday :    It's not too late to stop legal action. Settle the £1182.89 due to Photo Studio Group.    Friday 8:23am :   The £1182.89 due to Photo Studio Group is overdue we are now instructed to proceed with a formal Letter Before Claim.    Friday 6:28pm:   We are now considering whether to issue Court proceedings to recover £1182.89 owed to Photo Studio Group.        
    • Hi Guys, I would appreciate any advice you can give.   In mid September this year we went to a Caravan company to look at potential caravan purchases, we found one caravan that we liked it was a 2018 model,   however when talking to the salesman we expressed concern that the settee and the bed mattress seemed to be of very poor quality and lacked any real support. The settee and mattress also seemed older than the year of manufacture would suggest. The salesman assured us that the fittings were manufacture fitted and that was, 'Just how they are'. He agreed to look into the matter for us.   As a result we paid a £1,000 deposit on our debit card, the salesman asked us to sign a contract for sale regarding the caravan informing us it was 'a receipt for the money we paid'.   We were due to collect the caravan this week, however, during the period from signing the contract we felt that we were being mislead about the furnishings previously mentioned so we carried out some research.   I sent the photographs to the manufacturer and asked them if they were the original fittings supplied by them, they responded that the settee and mattresses shown in the photographs (Taken from the online sales pictures from the sellers website) were never fitted to that caravan and had never been supplied by the manufacturer. I also downloaded the brochure from the manufacturer that showed the settee and bed mattresses that were fitted to the year and model of the caravan we had paid a deposit on, were nothing like the ones currently fitted.   somebody has taken out the superior Settee and bed mattresses and replaced them with cheaper inferior quality ones which seriously devalued the caravan, notwithstanding reducing the comfort and quality of the caravan. He insisted that the photographs (taken from their website) were the correct fittings for that caravan.   On Sunday 20th October, I sent the caravan sales company a letter stating that we were rejecting the caravan and that we had been mislead as to the quality and provenance of the fittings, that we no longer had any trust in the sales company and under the Consumer Rights Act requesting the return of our deposit.   We received a response the next day that stated, they accept the cancelling of the contract however, they are retaining our deposit against the purchase of another caravan from them.   I think it is a given, that we would never darken their doorstep again let alone purchase anything from them. I would add that all our concerns and the company's responses have been via email, so we have an audit trail of what has gone on.   I have considered chargeback, as we paid on a Visa debit card (I know should have used a credit card) and I am aware that we have 120 days to try and implement this.   I'm looking for advice as to what to write to the company to start with, i.e. Letter of complaint (They have no complaints policy or procedure in their T&C, they are also not signed up to the Dispute Resolution Ombudsman Scheme) or a, Letter before Claim, or do I involve Trading Standards.   Any advice from the wise members of this group would be greatly appreciated.

    • 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!

Parking Eye got CCJ at old address - 1've paid but what

Firstly,

 

 

Thank you everyone for all your contributions on this website,

I have read through most of it and it was of real help to my particular problem regarding CCJ.

 

I have a query if you can help and advise.

 

I received a CCJ in April 2014 for parking in one of the sites maintained by Parking Eye company during Dec 2013.

 

The reason was that,

I moved from my previous residence and all the reminders and court communication were sent to my previous address including the CCJ appeals form.

 

I collected the letters from my previous address and since it was a court judgment,

I immediately paid the £165 in June 2014.

 

My credit file shows a CCJ as 'Satisfied'.

 

Now the actual problem is,

 

 

all my possibilities to get a loan or a mortgage have diminished

and I am being perceived as a financial offender or a kind of fraudster by financial institutions.

My Personal loan application was turned down and credit card applications were declined.

 

This has caused a lot of trauma mentally and I cannot help thinking on it everyday.

Everything seems difficult for me now.

I am in a permanent employment and have never missed any payments.

 

The only thing I can do is to appeal or challenge against the default decision

since I didn't had a slightest idea about it due to the communication being sent to my previous address.

 

Please advise if the appeal is possible now since I have paid the amount

and much time has been lapsed since the judgment.

 

Your advise will be of great help.

 

Thank you

You cant set it aside...you have paid it.......the CCJ will show on your CRA,s for 6 years ( Satisfied )...Satisfied judgments do look better than outstanding ones but, realistically, neither is helpful when it comes to getting mainstream credit. As the judgment ages, your credit rating should improve, as long as you manage your existing credit commitments well.

Hi, Thank you for all your replies,

 

 

My main defence will be non receipt of any communication since I moved from the place.

I have paid the amount as I thought it is a court judgement and its been too late to apply for 'Set Aside' or appeal since 2 months had already passed when I got all the documents from the previous address.

 

 

But now it has become difficult for me, I accepted that the fault is mine by Paying the fine amount,

but why do people like me who are genuine on-time payers of all their bills suffer for next 6 years just because of a private parking company taking advantage of the default judgement.

 

 

That's why my main question was, 'Can I appeal against as default CCJ when I have already paid the amount and it appears as 'Satisfied in my Credit file.

Any advice will be of great help.

Hi , Thank you for replying,

I understand it was a lag from my side as I moved house and sold the car, I paid the amount because of it and totally agree to everything.

 

 

But how fair it is on me to pay 40% on personal loans when the prevailing rate is up to 4% and I have no right to buy a house on mortgage.

Can a person be penalised for next 6 years with high interest rates, car insurance, home insurance and all that a normal person is entitled to.

 

 

Hence I am seeking an advice if there are chances to appeal and request the judge for consideration

If the process took place during a period where you failed to notify the dvla of your change of address

there is no known route of appeal or to get a setaside.

Also note that is is a seperate offense to fail to update your details with the dvla

 

IF you had updated your details with dvla then you could argue a setaside on the basis of not receiving paperwork.

 

 

The flaw here is you DID receive paperwork in order to discover you had a ccj and then paid it,

Hi, Appreciate your response thank you.

 

 

The paper work I received after 2 months of the CCJ,

I applied for a credit card and was turned down, then I started investigating the cause, thru credit file etc, and went back to the previous address and requested the tenants to give any documents they have received in my name in last six months,, that's when I found the CCJ documents.

 

 

For not informing DVLA the max fine will be £1000, if the judge wishes to fine me, but at least I will be able to get a mortgage on reasonable terms if the CCJ is cleared.

I cant imagine continuing paying £800 rent for next 6 years just because I have a CCJ and cannot get a mortgage.

 

 

I hope you understand.

Hi,

I hate to think that this is the end of the road and I am stuck for next 6 years,

There has to be something where I appeal or at least raise it to the court my situation.

I agree there are processes to keep actual fraudsters and [problematic] away and keep small businesses safe, however, this is affecting normal individuals like me.

I will keep trying and have a feeling that there might be some ray of hope somewhere I just need to keep on searching for it. :)

 

 

Regards.

You had your chance before court, and as a defence for it. They have no right to claim money from you. ALl you had to do was use GPEOL as a defence with popla and it would have been over long before court.

 

Right now, youve got very little chance of success and could end up with a lot more money spent in costs.

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..
