    • Thanks for your reply dx    no I haven’t moved, in all honestly I don’t think they have sent the NOA, hence why I have asked for proof. It was suspicious on the phone as they couldn’t find the letter and then couldn’t attach it to an email    I have no problem paying the £75 if they prove they sent it.    im disputing the £235 as I don’t think they’ve follow the COVID guidelines either. I’m at work and my sister answered the door who is deemed vulnerable and is shielding. I would have told them that if they done a risk assessment (I believe the ministry of justice require it)    im a little confused with what you mean by the NOA running out? They have told me they sent it on the 14th? 
    • Well, I'm being pedantic but I think they're using the wrong term.   Link to the Money Advice Service on salary sacrifice below. It doesn't sound like what you're doing.   https://www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en/articles/salary-sacrifice-schemes   HB
    • can you please refrain from using any hosting sites now please   read our upload guide carefully (esp about using pdfreducer websites) and pop the PDF up here.   can you also rotate the images!!   thank you
    • can't see how you can owe the £235 fee, just because of an error their way that ran the 7 days out because you didn't pay the £75 NOA fee in time. you need to confirm the address the NOA was sent too , thats all. have you moved since the fine was issued?   please be very careful about following advice on some bailiff sites, they can be very misleading at the best of times. if you've not moved, then there can't be any real dispute about not receiving the NOA, letters are deemed received 2 days after posting regardless.   i think you need to get WRITING to the company, offer the £75 . 
    • So after requesting a new SAR this is what we received. Can anyone shed some light on what I could do with these figures?  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PLDAGPrHWMrmqhiu6CDA3Vxg1w8NYQqI/view?usp=sharing   (There is no sensitive info on this link)  Can anyone Help?

    • 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 would you post up the full story in a little bit more detail on the bailiffs and enforcement agents forum please.

 

Once you have done that, people will know where to look and you will get the help and support that you need.

I've moved you to the bailiff forum

 

 

please tell us your story using this existing thread

 

 

dx

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...

As BankFodder and DX100 have said above, we are help to help you but we do need some further background information in order to provide accurate advice.

 

From your question I am assuming that you are now in rented accomodation and the letters from Rossendales have come to that property and the debt is in relation to a property that you own and which is currently let out to tenants.

 

Of concern is that you say that you sent the original copies of the tenancy agreements to the council and these appear to have gone astray. I would assume as well that the tenancy agreements were sent to prove to the council that tenants were occupying the property and that accordingly you are not liable for council tax.

 

If as you say, the ORIGINAL tenancy agreement have gone missing then you do have a problem at present.

 

Surely you must have retained copies of the tenancy agreements? Yes...no?

 

Do you have evidence from bank receipts that tenants were paying you?

 

Did you instruct agents to deal with the tenants or did you source the tenants yourself?

With regards to the current situation that Rossendales are writing to you at the property where you are now living. Do you have a tenancy agreement between you and your landlady confirming that you rent a room etc and does this agreement state whether the part of the property that you rent is furnished or unfurnished? This will be of great assistance to you with Rossendales.

Hi

I do not have a tennants agreement for where I reside as I am a live in carer for a person with late stage MS.

I own nothing in the property but my clothes , a tablet and mobile phone .

My allowance gets transferred to pay my rent and I receive ESA.

Given the above and the fact and i pay the council an agreed amount , never faltered, they say that as I did not respond to an update of circumstances letter , sent in Nov 2014, they transferred it to Rossendales.

Although all council tax and benefit comms are sent to my current address it transpires from a phone call made yesterday that it was sent to the address I rent out. There is a RM re direction in place but apparently this communication can not be re directed ?

Contacted the tennants and they have no recollection of any such mail , catch 22 there I suppose.

What do I do ?

Any help would be gratefully received

Apologies, but I'm confused. When you talk about your allowance, are you talking about Carer's Allowance? If so, my understnading is that you cannot claim CA alongside ESA; instead, when you put in your CA claim, you would not receive a CA payment, but a carers element of £34.20 would be added to your ESA payment.

 

My confusion is that you seem to be claiming both. I'm further confused my RM appearing not to be able to redirect specific types of mail - that's a new one to me unless it was addressed to 'The Occupier' as opposed to a specific name.

 

For the account to be transferred to Rossendales, they would have to have a LO in place. A repayment agreement with the council usually comes as a final stage before they apply for a LO. So am I right in thinking that they requested an update of cirumstances. For some reason this letter was never received, or never responded to, and they then got a LO against you for the CT owing, even though they could see payments were still being made regular as clockwork?

 

It's a strange one.
