    • 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!

on another thread from ericsbrother,

I suggest sending your appeal to POPLAlink3.gif by post because if you submit online you cannot add to anything already sent when you receive CPP's submissions as it will be flagged as being too late. the ordinay post allows you to rebut their claims if they are trying to claim things that are not true

When you appeal to POPLA make sure that the first grounds for appeal is that CPP have failed to say on what grounds your appeal to them was rejected bearing in mind that their claim is not compliant with the PoFA and is thus an abuse of process.

The use the grounds of 1. non-compliance- that CP Pluse are timed out for keeper liability under the PoFA

2 lack of contract between CPP and the landowner,you put it to strict proof that that they produce an contract thta allows them to make claims in their own name that is signed by the landowner and not another party that has no legal interest or authority.

3 lack of planning permission for the signage that they rely upon to form contracts (they normally forget to appl;y for PP, which makes the signs illegal)

4 amount claimed is not GPEOL and therefore unlawful penalty

Well I tried to get clarification of this thread - post45.

 

But post 46 is not in chronological order, and DrJolly you cannot be the RK if the DVLA have given zenith as RK to CP+, who have in turn given your/your company name to CP+ .

 

You wrote to CP+ and say you didn't give your name and address but they wrote back to you...

 

They state that they are not using the POFA so your name and address must have been given as the driver... ?

 

You have a POPLA code so at the minimum your appeal should include;

 

1. Proof, through sight of contract , that CP+ have lawful authority to issue and pursue parking charge notices at the site in question.

 

2. Proof that the charge is not punitive.

 

If you can clarify who they are holding liable for the charge ( driver/keeper/registered keeper), that would help further.

Hi all,

 

You have been fantastic so far and I am endlessly in your debt.

 

Questions as follows:

 

Should i include copies of CPP received documentation?

Should i include copy of my appeal to CPP?

Should i include documentation from Zenith regarding the car policy? (all employees able to drive the cars?)

 

Please could you also review and comment on the following:

 

Name & Address

Name & Add

Postcode

Good day, to whom this may apply,

POPLA reference: xxxxxxx

 

I wish to appeal against a parking charge issued by CP PLUS, as the company has made an unlawful attempt to claim compensation.

 

Time frame of events:

The driver of this vehicle was captured at the MOTO Birch West services from 05/05/15 12:02 to 05/05/15 14:54 by an ANPR camera.

Date of notice: 04/06/15

Have CP Plus been in contact with Zenith (Company Car Leaser)?

If so, have they advised CP PLUS to contact directly with (registered keeper)?

 

It is questionable, therefore:

1. Who is being held liable for this claim - driver/keeper/registered keeper?

2. Where is the proof, through sight of contract , that CP+ have lawful authority to issue and pursue parking charge notices at the site in question.

3. Where is the proof that the charge is not punitive?

4. In addition to the above, CPP have failed to say on what grounds my enclosed appeal to them was rejected, bearing in mind that their claim is not compliant with the PoFA and is thus an abuse of process.

 

Furthermore:

1. The timeframe above is not within compliance and CP Plus are timed out for keeper liability under the PoFA.

2. I am unaware of the driver at the time and there is no liability on my part under the PoFA, nor in common law tort. Under company policy, any employee may drive any car within the lease scheme.

3. There is a lack of contract between CPP and the landowner, I put it to strict proof that that they must produce a contract that allows them to make claims in their own name and that this is signed by the landowner and not another party that has no legal interest or authority.

4. There is a lack of planning permission for the signage that they rely upon to form contracts.

5. Lastly, the amount claimed is not GPEOL and therefore an unlawful penalty.

 

Please could you review the above and pass judgement accordingly.

 

Regards,

change the questions to statements so say I do not believe that CPP have authority for..... and put it to proof by sight of contract

Make them provide the evidence to POPLA because if you ask for it in this way and CPP dont provide it their claim will automatically fail because they havent shown any right to make the claim. Leave it as a question and they could avoid having to provide proof.

Hi all,

 

Posting this within the next hour, please let me know if changes are required:

CP Plus has not made contact with the vehicle’s Company Car Leaser. Therefore, evidence must be provided by CP PLUS as to how they have made contact directly with the registered keeper.

 

Therefore:

 

1. I do not believe CP PLUS at are right to hold me liable for this claim.

2. I do not believe, through sight of contract , that CP+ have lawful authority to issue and pursue parking charge notices at the site in question.

3. I do not believe the charge is punitive.

Personally I would change 'I am unaware of the driver at the time' to something like 'There is no liability on my part under the PofA to identify the driver at the time'

 

Best not to make statements that are untrue.
