    • Banning online sales doesn't seem to make much sense, BN. Things that might seem non-essential when you already have whatever it is can become essential when you've run out or it's broken.   How does the downloads thing work? I don't get that.

    • 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!

This is going to sound odd...

 

I had a court decree granted against me: 22/01/2010 for almost £3000.

 

It was in relation to a motorcycle that I purchased on Hire Purchase in March 2007 on a 4 year payment arrangement.

 

I believe the last payment I made to the finance company was around August 2008 (I was made paid off - Contractor).

I would have paid just over £2000 on a £3000 bike which had interest on top meaning I was due to pay around £5000 odds...

 

Obviously the court claim in 2010 was for the remaining balance of the credit arrangement including interest!

 

So, would there be 8% interest per annum chargeable on this amount considering that the claim included interest to complete the agreement

rather than the remaining actual outstanding balance?

 

Now for the odd bit... I still have the bike!

 

When I was paid off I thought I'd quickly get another job so I took advantage of the time off

and stripped the bike bare and sent the frame and other parts off to be powder coated.

My money dried up pretty quick and I didn't have enough to put the bike back together

plus I'd sold the fairings on ebay to raise cash to get the frame back from the painters...

 

I've slowly built it up over the years and am now almost finished.

It has not been on the road or out of my garage since 2008.

 

The thing is, I don't own it!

 

I now have the money to pay the finance company. Well, I have £3000.

 

What is my position?

The decree is for just over £2800.

Would I simply phone them up and agree to pay that

then make the payment

 

 

or are they going to be looking for the 8% per annum interest on top meaning it'd be over £4000

which would be nonsensical on a bike that might be worth £2000.

 

Also, it's over 5 years now.

Do I wait and see if they act before the 6 years is up

and THEN attempt to pay assuming that they would be in a weaker position with the time limit expiring (does it?).

 

I want to own the bike.

I have £3000.

I am severely confused as to what to do and seeking a little help.

 

 

The bike, as it sits, is worth £3000 to me (the exhaust alone retailed at £1200 back in the day - Titanium race thingy)

and I want to get out and about on it once again and have some enjoyment after the horrendous few years I have had.

 

£3000 can easily buy me a cracking second hand bike that'll be mine straight up

and I can worry about the other one after the six years are up,

IF the 6 years matter (ie: would put me in a stronger position for bargaining).

 

 

I'm not willing to pay £4000 as I don't have it and if keeping quiet and not making any contact with them

(and hoping for the same in return) until January 2016 means

I can crack a deal and pay the £3k for clear title then that is what I'd prefer to do. I CAN pay the £3000.

Does the length of time that's passed already have any bearing on bargaining?

 

Would you think they'd be willing to give clear title for settling the amount as ordered or do you think they'll be wanting the interest as well? Just your personal thought/sharing of experience.

 

Not wanting to open up a can of worms for myself unnecessarily and would appreciate others views.

no it has no bearing sadly

 

 

they cannot charge anything that is not written on the decree

 

 

so forget the 8%

 

 

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...
