    • 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!

OK thanks for that,

 

 

I received a letter to day have a read,

 

 

I have just had an interesting conversation with the Co - Op regarding this letter.

 

 

Have to say they were very helpful.

 

 

They confirmed the letter was not from them and not signed by their solicitor.

 

 

So one can only presume this is fraud.

 

 

Not only that they have had a number of complaints and their legal team is now looking into these letters.

 

That goes against this Parking Pranktster blog:-

There is a Christopher Howard Jones listed as working for the Co-op. http://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/person/105032/christopher-howard-jones

Reading between the lines (and speculating), I'd say...

 

The Chris Jones mentioned in the letter(s) does work for the Co-Op as one of their solicitors. However, taking what filrobbo has said at face value, it would appear that these letters have been created without Mr Jones' knowledge and (as they are PP) have not been signed by him.

 

Someone could be in it up to their eyeballs crazy.gif

Please note that my posts are my opinion only and should not be taken as any kind of legal advice.
In fact, they're probably just waffling and can be quite safely and completely ignored as you wish.

what a let down watchdog was

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...

Definitely, but someone commented that it might be because of the beavis case?

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Any way back to the real stuff when should I send my defence.

 

This is from the legal forum stikky.

 

Date of issue – top right hand corner of the claim form – this in order to establish the time line you need to adhere to.

 

Date of issue XX + 19 days ( 5 day for service + 14 days to acknowledge) = XX + 14 days to submit defence = XX (33 days in total) -

 

^^^^^ NOTE : WHEN CALCULATING THE TIMELINE - PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE DATE OF THE CLAIM IS DAY 1 [example: Issue date 01.03.2014 + 19 days (5 days for service + 14 days to acknowledge) = 19.03.2014 + 14 days to submit defence = 02.04.2014] = 33 days in total

Illegitimi non carborundum

So I make that 22nd May + 19 days = 9th June was the limit for submitting your AOS

 

9th June + 14 days = 23rd June to submit your defence

 

Someone might likt to doublecheck my maths.......

Ashley Cohen has a habit af writing and signing letters on behalf of the Co-op when he has no authority to do so. Chris Jones is indeed head of their litigation dept and a nice chap to boot. If you have received a letter "signed" by him that is supportive of CEL's position it will indeed be a 'creative' piece of paper and not from CJ himself. Hiowever, it is unlikely you will get a written statemtny from himself to support you as he has bigger fish to fry. He would be delighted to receive a copy of it though, I'm sure.

Send a copy to Companies House with a complaint about CEL and Creative's failure to register their directors interests in the other company incorrectly. I have already made a number of complanits and if you lookm into waht is legal and waht isnt the letter from CJ makes it appear as though the Co-op are conspiring to commit a criminal offence.

There is no assignment of any of Creatives contractual obligations and rights to CEL and the lying gits know it and that is why you have received this letter, they want you to pay up and avoid the spotlight of the court.

YEs. They wont respond because they have no intention of turning up at court anyway. however, do stick it in them so you have something to tell the judge whilst he waits for them to turn up.

Hi folks I sent a email to SRA regarding the actions of Mr Schwartz, have read of there reply.

The email I sent was,I have recently received a County Court Claim from a parking company called Civil Enforcement Limited.

 

I would like make a complaint about the solicitor that as signed the claim form,

 

 

1.Why Mr Schwartz has no idea if the charge is for trespass, breach of contract or contractual charge.

 

2. Why Mr Schwartz is claiming the charge might be for trespass when CEL are not the landowner and therefore have no standing.

 

3.Whether Mr Schwartz actually invoiced Civil Enforcement £50 as claimed .
