    • Indeed but at 167 pages of whining, bitching and complaining spanning over 4 years it's self-evidently clear what category some contributors to this thread fall into.    
    • They are the insurance lawyers I contacted about the claim.   I just told them I wanted to do an SAR for the call over the phone.   I asked for 3 separate calls to be sent to me. One for the renewal call and 2 others.   They sent me 2 calls which I asked for via email. The only one they didn’t send me. Was the call of my renewal. Where I apparently said yes to all details remaining the same on the policy.
    • I think there's a difference between obsession and wanting the UK to be well-managed and to get the best possible deal for the economy.
    • I remember Ceredigion I think, was it the council that had an ex-science teacher in charge? I think I may have posted the article I read about how their system actually worked.   It's a shame other people didn't follow,
    • Hello and welcome to CAG.   Have you spoken to Santander about the problem and asked about extending further? I'd have thought your situation isn't that unusual so they should have experience of it.   We had a not dissimilar situation a few years ago, fwiw. Our buyer had been messing about for months, or rather his call centre coveyancers had. Like you, every time we looked like exchanging, they raised another query and it all seemed to get stuck on the insurance for a leasehold flat by the management company. In the end, our solicitor gave them a deadline of a few days and said if they didn't exchange by then, we were pulling out.   This was a risky strategy and their paralegal ignored emails until after the deadline. In our case, the deadline didn't help us to exchange but we were able to start again with a new buyer. I know this won't be what you want to hear, but it can work the other way. You could also talk to your lawyer about what can be done, if you haven't already.   Best, HB

    • 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!

The response I am getting (from Shoosmiths) is as follows

 

You have requested strict proof of where the payments came from, as the bank statements you hold show no such payments.

 

In response I confirm our client is not obliged to provide you with details of where the payments came from and reiterate that the statements we have provided are sufficient evidence of payments being made towards the account.

 

It is not clear from your email, but it appears you are suggesting somebody else has made the payments detailed on the statement dated 24 August 2010, however, we have no evidence to suggest anybody other than yourself made payments towards the account.

 

Any tips on next steps from here?

 

Do I now update the County Court with an amended defence?

I cannot find anyone in Canada Square Operations who can look into the query as they are apparently only set up to look into ppi requests and I am left with only their address not a phone number/email.

 

Shoosmiths latest is .......

 

As you are aware, my client is not the original creditor and as a result would not hold details regarding the source of the payments made. I confirm my clients position remains the same in that the defence you have filed appears to be a bare denial of any debt owing, and the documentation we have provided clearly shows you are liable for the sum claimed.

 

 

This is why I am asking, do I have to resubmit a new defence now to say it is statute barred debt? And I refute the payments referred to, and can provide bank statements showing no payments were made and that despite a request for strict proof none is given. Is this the next step? And do I have to do this by contacting the county court directly?

  • 3 weeks later...

I've had no response from Canada Square despite phonecalls and written request.

No further from Shoosmiths.

 

I've asked the court if I can amend my defence

am awaiting approval to do so from the Judge.

 

Hearing only 2 weeks away.

When I phone to chase I get told to wait to hear.

 

Any advice on next steps?

When you ring that number it says 'Thanks for calling SANTANDER. This number is no longer in use.'

 

Either they've put that statement together not Egg (as I believe) and put the incorrect number on it or Santander somehow ended up with Egg's customer service number.......

as its a weird figure.

I can bring along bank statements to the hearing

but my concern now is that I won't be listened to

because my initial defence was for Shoosmiths to prove it.

 

The court wrote to me this week (in response to my request to amend my defence) and the letter simply said seek legal advice.

 

I spoke to the Citizen's Advice Bureau and they said seek out a lawyer.

 

I am not sure what type of lawyer would get involved in this

- last time I asked my local one they told me to go to CAB........

Have received this email from Shoosmiths

 

We note you have advised there has been no acknowledgment, of any form, or any payments made in regards to this debt, within the last 6 years.

 

You have also previously alleged the payments detailed on the statement dated August 2010 were not made by you.

 

To enable us to review the position with our client,

could you please provide statements for your Bank Account numbered xxxxxxx, sort code xxxxxx being the account you set up a Direct Debit from when you entered into the agreement with Egg Banking Plc, as well as statements for any other Current Accounts held by you, covering the period from 1 January to 31 August 2010.

 

Upon receipt of the above, we will review the allegation the payments detailed on the above mentioned statement were not made by you, with our client, and seek their further instructions.

 

As you are aware, a hearing has been listed for 2pm on Monday 31 October 2016 and we would, therefore, appreciate your response by no later than midday on 28 October 2016.

 

We look forward to hearing from you.

You don't need to send them anything - it's for them to show where the payments came from.

 

Their WS shows your last payment prior to default as 30/05/2007.

 

Is this, to your knowledge, the last payment that was made by you or on your behalf...or were other payments made after default?

Yes 2007 was my last payment and was from the account they referenced (which I then closed in August 2007).

 

do I respond to them to say I'll bring my 2010 bank statement to hearing but I won't be sending to them as it's personal data?

I replied to say I wouldn't send my bank statement they have since sent this.

 

I note you believe it is not appropriate to send the bank statement directly to us,

however, I would draw your attention to the Civil Procedure Rules 1998, Rule 24.5(1),

in which evidence upon which you intend to rely in response to our Application,

must be filed and served at least 7 days before the Summary Judgment Hearing.

 

This was made clear in our Application Notice dated 22 June 2016.

Accordingly you are now out of time to submit any evidence on which you wish to rely and it is not permissible to turn up at court with further evidence on the day.

 

In the circumstances,

I remain willing to provide you with until midday tomorrow to provide the requested documentation.

Should you fail to do so,

I will have no alternative but to invite the Court to disregard the same,

as our client’s position will be prejudiced as they have not had the opportunity to consider the same.

 

I confirm that any documents disclosed during the course of these proceedings will remain confidential and will only be used for the purpose of these proceedings.

 

Should you still refuse to provide us with the relevant documents and at the hearing the Court decides to provide you with the opportunity to rely on any further evidence,

then we will invite the court to adjourn our application and relist it at the first available opportunity,

after 28 days, to enable our client to consider the same.

 

In addition we will be seeking an order that you pay the costs occasioned by the hearing as such costs would have been avoided had you disclosed the relevant documentation beforehand.

 

We trust this will not be necessary and that you will now provide the statements to which you refer together with copies of statements from any other current accounts you may have that the payments could have been made from.

 

Again, if the hearing is adjourned we shall seek an order from the court that you disclose details of all current accounts in your name for the relevant period together with copy statements.

 

We reserve the right to draw this email to the attention of the court if necessary.
