    • 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!

I have issued a County Court Summons against Barclays Mortgage Service, PO Box 8575.

 

As they failed to respond

 

 

I have entered judgement against them and a warrant for full payment was attempted to be issued by the bailiff,

 

 

because we only have a PO Box address the bailiff is unable to execute the warrant.

 

Does anyone know the real address for this office in Leicester ?

You could try phoning them and asking them. No, seriously.

 

Or you could try reverse #po box look-up. although there are fees: http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_7623089_locate-post-office-box-address.html

 

Or you could just contact their legal dept in London and mention the claim to them.

I would have thought that you should have issued the claim to their Registered office : 1 Churchill Place, London E14 5HP. ?

 

Do you have any of their letters which gives either the address above or another proper postal address for them ?

Do you know if they received the original claim form ? It sounds as though you obtained a Judgment by default and the chances are they will very likely make an attempt to get any judgment set aside once they are fully aware of it.

Barclays were well aware a County Court claim was being started

because I asked them for the address for service which they gave as the PO Box address.

 

The Court in Leicester are now sending me a form to allow the warrant to be reissued at

either the address in Leicester if it can be found or the Head office in London.

 

Barclays are aware of the warrant but still refuse to give their real address,

 

 

thank you for your interest.

The summons was issued, they did not reply within the 14 days, I left it a further 3 weeks and contacted the court, judgement was entered and an immediate payment within 2 days was issued by the court this was also ignored . A warrant was issued but the bailiff was unable to serve because of the PO Box address and was unable to find the real address.

Hi Mr PW,

 

I'd be concerned about the actual name you used to sue them. Please confirm what name you put on the N1 form.

 

The London HQ address is nearly always the one to use.

 

Can you tell us if you sued for mortgage penalty charges, or something else.

 

:-)

We could do with some help from you

it was for legal fees, I am a freeholder and the leaseholder failed to pay for repair works at the property, insurance and ground rent totalling over £2000.00. A land registry search revealed the leaseholders lender was Barclays. They were contacted by phone. post and email on multiple occasions over six months. Eventually they said I would have to use a solicitor to recover the money owing and that they would pay the legal fees. A solicitor managed to recover the whole amount due but not including the legal fees. when I presented the solicitors invoice to Barclays they refused to make promised payment. I contacted the Chairman of Barclays by post explaining what they had agreed but to no avail. I then started a county Court Claim which was sent to the address they advised could be used for service of documents, the Head office of the Mortgage Department Leicester was the address on the summons, the immediate payment request from the court and the warrant.

Hi Mr P and thanks for the further info.

 

The quickest way forward may be to write to Barclays Litigation Team at the London HQ address - http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?208-Email-or-contact-details-for-Barclays

 

Enclose a copy of the court judgement and tell them you require immediate payment or Enforcement action will be taken without further warning.

 

See how they respond.

 

Did the Land Registry entry show the full name of the leaseholders lender and, if so, what exact name.

The Leicester County Court are sending me a form to allow the Warrant to be redirected. If I am unable to find the real address in Leicester then I will have to pay a fee to change the warrant address to the Head office in London and the Bailiff will then execute the warrant there. All the fees are added to the warrant.

Barclays are named as the lender on the land registry and have accepted it is their customer. The court have already asked for an immediate payment to be received within 2 days which was ignored and that was why an additional fee was paid and the Bailiff instructed. I have been tweeting them today for the real address but they refuse to give it !!!

Hi Mr PW,

 

I've been looking around for a definitive answer to the name of the body you should have sued.

 

Have a look at the foot of this Woolwich page, which is current - https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&sqi=2&ved=0CCsQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.woolwich.co.uk%2F&ei=BITGVOHjKMKa7gb604CYCQ&usg=AFQjCNE3JsZhSfYqrShzbM71k8n9KI6ucg&sig2=rlbCBnOecULh4Dv3XlYYSw

 

'The Woolwich' and 'Woolwich' are trademarks and trading names of Barclays Bank PLC.

 

Accordingly, I would have named the Defendant as :-

 

Barclays Bank PLC t/a Woolwich

1 Churchill Place

London

E14 5HP

 

I am not at all surprised that they are not helping you. After all, you're suing them !!
